    About Me
    Hi!
    I am 61, soon to be retired. A little history, in the mid-70's I bought a 67 Shelby GT-350 for $600, it was in bad shape, the previous owner had failed to put antifreeze in it and cracked the heads. It was not in running condition but he promised for the price he would have it running. The deal was stuck. It started, I drove it off and after a few miles I checked the dip stick and a foamy oil and water mix was evident. Oh, well... it was my dream car so off I went knowing work was at hand. Over the next several months in my Grandmothers garage everyday off was spent under the hood. He had told me the heads were milled so I didn't look to that. Needless to say, every time I started it the same problems. I went through quite a few friends helping me. One friend, my girlfriend stayed with me under that hood. We finally got it running (had to mill the heads) and that young lady has been my wife for 35 years. 4 kids, 2 grandkids and several "needed" vehicles later my bride has agreed it's time for me to get "my" car. Oh, the Shelby was sold a few years later for $1500 for a down payment on our first home. It needed more work that I could afford at that time. She has agreed to 2011 GT with a standard, WoooHooo!!!! I received my ride July 6, 2010.
