Please tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m a 50 year old, severely disabled man that had built his dream car with his mind and his own 2 hands, with 3 select friends in 5 garages and my trailer. I’m a retired railroader and I love my car. I am in the gym 5x a week and try to make the best of myself I can with what I have to work with. I love my god given right to wear my .45 semi auto on my left hip. Been into radios for 40 years and got my ham license in 1995. I also love riding my 600 cc Honda scooter.
How did you first get interested in this hobby/passion?
HO cars and AFX 45 years ago.
What Rides do you currently own?
I currently own my 1986 Pontiac Trans Am and a 2012 Ford F350 dually diesel crew-cab 4×4, white platinum tricoat pearl.
What do you like most about your Cool Rides?
I love just looking at the cars.
What is the best memory you have with your favorite ride?
The list is endless, but I remember being on top of the world at one time, and my parents, my RR job, my dancing days, my dog, and so much more.
How do you store your ride(s) during infrequent use, and what maintenance tips can you provide for readers?
I store it inside my trailer.
What was the first car you ever owned?
A 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood Breougham. I owned it from 1977 to 1983.
What is/was the BEST car ever made?
That’s a answer that will be different from most. We all will say the best car is what we own.
What is/was the WORST car ever made?
