I haven't been working on American cars for very long. I was raised on pre-73 VW's, started when I was 13 or 14 maybe. Always think about one of the first cars that caught my eye as to what cool American steel was and I thought it was a 59 Cadillac Coupe De Ville. Although, it is one of my all time favorite cars, it isn't what started it all. Even though all I did for a long time was VW's an American car did catch my eye early one, i just couldn't afford it... It was a 1951 Plymouth Deluxe that I found on the front row of a junk yard when i was 16. Black, all faded out, good interior still but there was chrome to bajesus and back in great shape. I fell in love with that car and still to this day wish I would have picked it up. Guy only wanted 1500 bux for it and it ran... but for a 16 year old, that might as well be a million dollars when ur working like 3 hours a day during the school year. sorry for the long dragging ass story but it was on my mind... still.
