"I got it honest" as the saying goes. My Daddy was a moonshine runner and has alays had a passion for autos, especially old ones. He passed this appreciation of the design, craftsmanship and engenuity down to me.
I am currently an active duty member of the U.S. Coast Guard. I'm an Electronics Tech and am only a couple of years from retirement. I deploy often so if I don't respond to you quickly please understand that it's probably due to operations or , not that I'm just being a jerk.
I've owned hot rod VWs, lifted Suburbans, a couple of lifted rock crawling Suzuki Samurais, a lifted Geo Tracker, a show truck low rider minivan, a 69 Olds Cutlass, a lifted Ford F-150 and now an Expedition...along with a couple others here and there. I am currently building a custom 1953 Buick Special 2 door. In the future I plan to build my wife a 60's Pony and help my youngest son but a 67-72 Chevy pickup.
My greatest accomplishment is that I talked the most beautiful woman I've ever seen into marrying me. We have 4 incredible children who are all teens now and will soon be out building cars of their own!
A 1974 Plymouth Valiant 4 door. It was ugly, but it was mine. I learned quickly that the old 318 doesn't fair well when you yank it into first gear at about 70 mph....
1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass, that 350 Rocket would scream!
An old, low sled with a lot of horses, kind of like I'm building now. Beyond that I'd love to pick up a 50's Chevy pickup someday.
