About me and my passion for cars
I've always liked hot cars and trucks. Growing up, they were nothing more than transportation. My parents had basic, sensible vehicles. When I went to purchase my first car, my Dad said "You can buy the 67' Chevy Biscayne from your sister". PERIOD She had beaten it into the ground. If I couldn't afford a cool car, then I would get attention by being different! I was the only kid in school that could pick out their car in any parking lot.(Check out the album on CAYNE)
One day I saw a car with a bird on the hood. I fell in love! Then the 77' "Sky Bird" came out in light blue with it's blue snowflake wheels!! WOW!
When I got married, we both had vans. When I sold mine, my husband asked what I wanted to get. A Trans Am, of course! I found a "Sky Bird" for sale, but, my husband said, "Would you rather have a 6cyl. or a Trans Am with an 8?"
So, started our collection- 79'TA 403, 79'TA 400, 82' Mustang GT, 91' Firebird, 94' Ranger Off Road Pkg., 94' F150 Flareside Mark III Custom, 94' Suburban, 01' WS6 TA, and 05' Honda VTX/1300R motorcycle
My first car
67' Chevy Biscayne-327-Took a qt. of oil with every gas fill-up. Lots of rust, so, I painted an ocean scene on the hood, canyon scene with a stallion on the trunk, African safari scene-driver's side, woodland on passenger side. When ever the "Bondo" cracked, or more rust came through, I'd just get out the Rustoleum"and paint brushes and change the scene!
Black and leopard print interior (Come ON!!!-It was the 70's!!)
It had a bent A frame, so, every time you put on the brakes in the winter, you'd end up in the right snowbank!
Car I wish I still had
Birdie- Custom 79 'TA
My dream car
Any low, wide sports car- Ford GT 40, Viper, Lambo, "Magnum's"Ferrari, Superbird etc.
