About zimm’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

I started out working in a wrecking yard when i was about 15 years of age back in the mid 50's. Through the years i have had the pleasure of seeing the automotive world change, and i had to change with it. I have had the pleasure of dirt track racing, and to build my own cars. Technology is sure great. It has created more oputunities for many young, ( and old), people than just about any other industry. And i have seen it as a mechanic, and as an instructor, in both the high school and community college level. I have retired, so now i get to enjoy my little classic, with my one and only for the past 40 years. We enjoy car shows, and swap meets. And sometimes we get to take a little trip when the weather is nice. And the neighbors still come over so we can swap lies and fix somebody's rig that isn't feeling to well.

My first car

1940 BUICK 9 PASS LIMO (man what a party car)

Car I wish I still had

1937 PACKARD CONVERTIBLE (V-12 with three on the floor)

My dream car

I have had so many that it's hard to name just one. (aprox. 85 ).

Car clubs I’m in

none at the moment, but the best one i can remember was a covertible club. We did parades and special events.

Favorites

  • Type of racing: dirt track
  • Driver: Doug Wolfgang
  • Car movie: Gone in 60 seconds (1970s version)
