The Drive By is new way to spotlight cars.  As the name states these are cars that I see where ever I’m traveling.

The 1966 Barracuda wasn’t much when compared to the 1970’s younger brothers.


Often referred to as the Formula S – 2 door coupe fastback with the V8.  I don’t know if this one was the V8, I would have had to see the if it was badged properly to determine. (Small medallion placed below the ‘Barracuda’ script.  The V8 would have been the Commando 273 CID with a two barrel carb – about 235 hp and a 10.5:1 compression when topped with a 4bbl Carter AFB..  The 6 cylinder was the Valaint Signet slant 225 CID with about 145 hp with a single barrel carb.  They came in convertible as well – only 2570 of those were produced.


Thanks for reading.

The worst day of my life

December 4, 2011

February 4, 2006 was the worst day of my life. I lost the one person that I loved more than anyone in this world. The day I was born, I wrapped my little hand around her finger and never let go. She was the one person who never yelled at me, never made me feel less than, never disappointed me, was always there, showed me what true unconditional love is, and made me the man I am today. She was my number 1 girl and life looks so dark without her in it. I stayed by her side until the very end,  I kept wanting to run out of the room but what lessons did I learn from her if I would have left her when she needed me the most? She was always there when I needed her. My heart is so broken that I don’t even know what to do with myself but I know she wants me to go on with life and continue to make her proud. I think I am still in shock..I just can’t believe she is gone. She was such a presence in my world, she was bigger than life. Everyone that met her fell instantly in love, she was the most amazing person that I have ever known or will ever know.  Grandma, you made everything in life so magical. Everyday was an adventure. You made my otherwise crappy childhood best memories were being at your and Papa’s house..where everything stayed the same..such stability and a true feeling of HOME.  I will miss you everyday and will be so happy when I get to be with you again. I love you with every fiber of my being.
In Remembrance
