As an avid car enthusiast, I moved to Carlisle before I started high school. Well before relocating to Central Pennsylvania in 1984, I regularly attended Carlisle Events’ car shows with my dad. Motor oil and racing fuel have pumped through my veins since I was a kid collecting Matchbox cars.
A 1968 Mustang , with a 200 cubic inch inline six and some mild engine and exhaust mods, served as my first love and initial set of wheels. Throughout my life, I’ve helped my dad restore three 1929 Model A’s (pickup, tudor, and roadster), multiple mid-‘60’s muscle cars, and a 1966 Chevy II Nova. The latter Deuce Coupe had been a Long Island drag car; with 4:11 gears, it would consistently put a grin on anyone’s face!
