On another subject; do you like to read for sale ads in the newspaper? I do. I go through cycles of reading them every day when I think I want a particular car or just want to see what the market is doing.

I was recently reading the for sale ads in the local paper to see if there was something I just could not live without and I spotted the following ad. It did not sound like anything I was interested in but it sure did remind me of when I was much younger and had different priorities.

I remember when it was more important to have a new set of Baby Moon hub caps than it was to have a good set of tires. I remember when I just had to get the seats redone instead of fixing the floor the seats were sitting on!

This fellow obviously felt it was much more important to have good tunes for his car than to be able to drive it!

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
