Been driving since 16, but always been into cars. I got my license at 18 and tinkered lightly, but didn't get big into modding and racing until I got my Prelude, which was over eight years ago!

Since around 1967. There was a red Lotus Europa parked down the street. I loved walking to school that year.

Of course, that was also the peak of the muscle car era. Great cars were everywhere, even in the small town in NC where I grew up. There were Shelby's, a Superbird, one of those Daytona Chargers. lots of fast Camaros, Mustangs, and Corvettes, R/T Challengers, Novas everywhere, jacked up, dual rear high-performance coon tails on CB antennas and all. All the "other" cars you see in F&F. I'm sorry you guys missed all that.

Back then I had a 1968 6-cyl. AMC Javelin, but was too poor to do anything interesting with it. Then I got my Prelude, in 1998, and a few years later discovered track days, and I became that teenager again. Or rather, a responsible teenager who tears up the track, not the streets.

Can only say I've been truly into it for a few years now. I was into performance cars when I was like 12 but obviously that was nothing other than day dreaming and what not.

If we are counting from when we got our lic then 18. But like a lot of you, my dad was a mechanic and had me help him out with stuff since I was about 9. When I was 11 he had me dissaseble his 1980 Buick Riviera's Olds 350 so he could then do a rebuild on it while showing me what he was doing. And before that I was a huge fan of all toys that had wheels on them. When I could read, I moslty only read car mags.

Started in 1970 with a 1967 Mustang GT, stock 289 and 4sp manual. I proceed to build it out with a new intake manifold, carb, headers and glasspacks. I then installed an electronic ignition, cam and new valve train. It never really stopped there ... I've been building, selling and building ever since.
Recently got my first Prelude and this may very well be my last project. I love driving it and I can see myself doing this build for years.

30 years. Started Karting, then bought a 400 CID Tempest then A 1971 Challenger, then went through a Japanese car phase, a German car phase, a Lotus Esprit spat, a Pontiac GTP phase, a Zcar phase and full circle back to Honda's. The new Honda's are for girls.
