It started when my gramp built me a an scaled dowm Ford model T with full working motor & pedals etc. It was my sixth birthday present & he even put the license plate GAS 6 (GAS is my intials)on the front & rear. I still have the car today some 16 years on & it still works!!!!! I get my love of cars from my gramp who has had over 100 cars ranging from the original Mini, Jensens & even a Red Jaguar E type roadster Im car mad & have lots of models & but 2-3 magazines every week to keep on top of the news in the auto indusrty
Hey, cars even help me get my job in CAR INSURANCE, my employer liked me because of my knowledge they had to give me the job
When I was 5 I got a toy car for x-mas that ran on batteries and I thought there was nothing cooler in the whole world. When I was 10 I made my Dad stop with the whole family in the car so I could get out an see a Ferrari that was at a dealer. It was the first Ferrari I had seen in person and I knew everthing about the car. I was in awe.
I've driven Lamborghini's, Viper's, Porsches (including the 996TT) and all the Japanese sports cars. I have owned mostly sports cars but never an automatic. I have model cars, car pictures, slot cars and r/c cars.
