From the day I turned 16 I have loved cars (VW's to be precise). I worked as a mechanic and it made me hate the bloody things!
I spent a lot of time and effort putting my first car together. Every spare second I had I would work on my car (76 MK1 2 door with a MK2 1.8 k-jet motor). I finally finished it and it was time to get my licence. I was very much like every other inexperienced and overconfident teenager to get their licence. After just 23 days of finished my pride and joy I was showing off in front of some of the opposite sex and wrote off my one true possession, lost my licence for 2 years and learn't a very tough lesson that day.
This didn't stop me continuing to build up another car and tinker with things that made my brain tick. I made a 70cc 2 stoke bicycle to cruise around on to get to work and visit my mates whilst I had no licence.
I keep my eyes on the goal of getting my licence back and being a good boy from then on. I learned a massssssssive lesson during those 2 years of my life. I told others to do the right thing and to learn from my mistakes!
At the end of all this I still love cars day in day out. I modded my cars myself and helped other modify theirs. I became known by name amongst a few people and would head to regular meets and hang with my car buddies!
Here are a few shots of rides I've had...
