About Me -

Member for: 9 years, 6 months, 9 days

I'm 29, live in Boulder Creek, CA. I grew up in family owned automotive shops...I have had a wrench in my hand since I was about 7, and over the years I have built way too many cars to list.

11 months ago I was involved in a motorcycle accident from a car swiping me from the oncoming direction down the left side of the bike. I took it much worse than the bike did and I'm still healing. It's going to be a while before I use the left leg for things like the clutch, but give me time, I'll be back in full eventually.

I recently sold some of my stick shift cars, including my 01 Pontiac WS6 and my 71 Z28. Current projects include a 69 camaro convertible that is loosing it's 427 for a built 540; A 31 Model A chopped & channeled with a 377 and th400 pro-street style; A 68 Chevelle 454/th400; The 69 Plymouth Roadrunner and 79 Vette are patiently waiting their turns as well.

I'm mostly oriented towards drag racing, but on occasion I do play on the road courses :)I also have a few 4x4s that I play in from time to time.

I do all my own machining, welding, wrenching, and painting, among other things, butI don't do much on the inside of transmissions or axles.
