About me and my passion for cars

Started in 1975 when my brother-in-law picked me up from school in his 1969 Camaro RS/Z28 with a 4spd and a 4.11 posi. That ride home changed my life and created a passion that has included 4 Chevelles, 3 Novas, 3 Corvettes, and 12 Camaros over those last 35 years!
I guess it goes without saying: "I'm A Diehard Chevy Man"!!

My first car

White 1966 Chevelle ~ Built 350/TH350, 3500 Stall Converter, 12 Bolt Posi w/4.11's, Ladder Bar Setup, Centerline Auto Drags! It was my Uncle's Steet/Strip car until he bought a Pro-Mod '66 Vette. I bought the Chevelle from him in 1982 when I was a Junior in High School.

Car I wish I still had

My Black 1967 Nova Super Sport It was restored up in Canada by a guy who spent 4 years on it and over 22K for the total rebuild. It was in showroom condition and had a high gloss finish that was as smooth as glass. I can only imagine what it would be worth today. Also, either one of the three 67 Camaros would work too!

My dream car

1967 RS/SS Pro/Street Camaro with a 572ci solid roller BBC topped with an 8-71 Blower. Tubbed w/a narrowed 9" rearend, a 4 link suspension with coil over's. Built TH400 with an 8.5" 4500 Stall Converter. The body channeled about 4" over the frame and a 12 point cage. High gloss Black with HOC Candy Tangerine Flames, purple tips and blue pin-striping. A full 4" Flowmaster Exhaust System. I'd say by the time I hit 50 I'll have it sitting in my garage. (That gives me 10 years)
