'39 Chevy coupe purchased while still in grade school. Oh, the fun my buddy and I had with that car! Who needed a driver's license back in the early 60s, especially after dark?

1976 Chevy Caprice, given to me with a blown engine. Spent $250 for a used engine from the local junk yard, beat on the car for about a year, and then sold it for $650.

1976 Pontiac Grand LeMans with 305 V8. Learned a lot on that car, took several weeks to get it to pass the safety inspection.


Put all that good learning into the next car, a 1980 Chev Malibu. We dropped a salvaged 350 4bbl from a GM Truck into it. Best sleeper car ever!

1967 mustang - it was wrecked and in the Salvage yard or like it was known back then the junkyard. I begged my dad to let me buy it. I was 14 and didn't even have a license. He made a deal with the owner of the yard and they towed it to my house. It took me 3 years of saving every penny and hundreds of hours of labor with my dad but we made her beautiful again.

My dad and I did a lot of cars together over the years but this one was special. The bond created by working side by side with him could never be broken. Now that he is gone, all I have are the memories but they are great ones. What I wouldn't give to do just one more car with him...
