Drag Racing; Legends Racing; Auto Restoration; Muscle Cars; Old air cooled VWs; Jeeps; and lastly, Ford Mustangs. Hey, I'm an old car guy so ALL car stuff in general interests me... I used to drive a modified Smart car to work everyday (that is until a tree limb fell on it... It's a long story... God I miss that car!) So, as of now my latest ride/project is a 2005 Toyota Corolla XRS. It uses the same drivetrain as a Lotus Elise (another car that's on my Bucket List) As you have probably guessed, my idea of what makes for a cool ride runs from the norm to the pretty diverse.
