I wouldn't call me an expert, I'd call me addicted to classic American cars, and muscle cars, I don't really know if that makes me an expert or not, but I have a lot of fun talking about muscle cars, and classic American cars, I enjoy helping people get their cars restored, rather I show them how to do it themselves, or help them locate a reputable shop to do the work.
It just makes me feel good to know that I may help save a car from rotting in the back yard, or getting hauled to the wrecking yard, I love to see a happy camper after they get their car restored, and their showing it off to all of their friends and relatives, it's good that some people still care enough to see the big picture when it comes to cars.
You don't need a brand new car, or a foreign car to be cool, all you need to be is an American, who's proud to drive an American car, one who loves our country, sure have a gas economy car to do your daily driving in, and save your big bad American muscle car for the week ends, and car shows.
I'm not an expert, I'm just a humble guy who loves American cars, who loves what they stand for, and who thinks that nothing has ever been built that looks as good as a classic American car, or muscle car, it doesn't matter much to me when people want to bash American cars, it just shows me a level of stupidity that makes me have to laugh at you.
It's a love for the classic body lines, the V8 engines, the low down stance, the muscular look of classic American cars, they are nothing short of a work of art, and I love them to the core, I love everything about them, and have never seen such perfection since the early 1970's, and never will again.
Well nothing short of a new corvette, or Dodge viper, those cars have the look, and the power it takes to be an American muscle car, they have the stance, and the muscular body lines, those cars just have it down to a science when it comes to being American, and I love it.
I'm just a fool in love with a concept that can only happen once in a lifetime, a concept of pure fun, and the big three trying to out do each other, it produced some of the coolest cars ever built, it produced corvette's, camaro's, mustangs, chevelles, gtos, chargers, challengers, well you get the idea, it really can't happen again.
If you were lucky enough to be alive during it, I hope you had a lot of fun, I just caught very last of it, I had friends that were still living back in the day, and I did it through them, kind of second hand, but I took the time to learn about the classic muscle cars, the time to know the feeling of driving them, and the feeling of owning a few of them while I was growing up.
I feel lucky to be one of the chosen few who got to feel the power of a true American muscle car, I feel lucky to have owned a few of them as I was growing up, and it makes me happy that people want to read the articles that I write about them.
I've been in the automotive business for about 20 or 25 years, I have worked in all facets of the industry, from parts to restoration, all different makes and models, I just want to keep people interested in the old cars because it's where my heart is.
