ever since I was a kid growing up in my native country (PERU)I've
had a love for cars ;I remember my father would buy me molding clay(I was like around 6 or 7yrs old) and I would mold little cars with it,and play with them, the fancy toy cars to have back then were the british corgis cause the were more realistic looking,and the other were the matchbox;as I got a little older my father and my uncles would take me to the dirt bike races,and go cart races;and rally car racing; my dad and his brothers were into it ,and in the process got me more in to it also,I also came to find out that I had an uncle who did race a bmw 2002 on the rally called "el camino de los Incas"in english would be the pathway of the Incas,or road of the Incas;after my parents divorce my old man stayed in Peru and my mother brought us here (me & my brother),though the passion stayed dormant for a few yrs,it woke right up after I started driving .
my first car was a hand me down from my mother, a 1968 chevy Impala fast back,non ss with a 327,I was 16 at the time and was into cars,but was more into the new cars,then being 1979;a few mos after driving the 68 ,I was lusting for a Z/28;got into liking the Z cause a neighbor had a brown 77 with the gold striping; so beggin mom to co sing she alow me to get a new 79 350 with a 4 spd ;had to work to jobs to pay for that sucker,but it was worth it.
the two I first mentioned
1 of two :53 caddy coupe fast back or a 53 chevy bel air convertible,with a continental kit,either with it's vintage drivetrain or modern type.
none at the moment,work and projects at home don't give enough time
