About me and my passion for cars

It started in jr. high school. My girlfriends were all buying Tiger Beat and Teen Beat mags; I got a copy of, I believe, Hot Rod. They thought I was weird. But there was a yellow "American Graffitti" type car on the cover -- and that's been my fav bodystyle and another dream car. I dated guys sort of based on their cars... if it was cool, I wanted to ride in it! And if I could bat my eyes and pout just right, they'd let me drive it, if my short little legs could reach the pedals and push the clutch all the way in. Sometimes I could barely see over the steering wheel, but I never hit anything or crashed anyone's car, so I don't why they'd all act panic-y about my driving... geez!
Then in '88, my husband & I got our first Mustang GT 5spd. We owned 2 more after that, until we found the '97 Cobra; traded to the '01 Cobra, and now, it's the '07 GT500...
