Cars Profile

About me and my passion for cars

I grew up in a muscle car family. As a toddler, I rode around in my mom's 65 mustang, her 67' GTO and finally the 70 Stingray, which she still has. She bought it brand new and was the first female member of the Corvette Marque Club of Seattle. I rode in the Vette as a kid with the club for over ten years, lots of fun.

My first Firebird was a 74 Esprit, then a 77 6.6 Trans Am and finally in 1989 I purchased the Bandit SE I have now for 800 plus the trade in of my 77. I miss the big block 6.6, however, through some creative engine modifications and the removal of the stock exhaust manifolds, replacing them with headers, flowmasters and a functional hood scoop. It's a Monster! But it's also my third child!
