Guess I should introduce myself. I'm Bruce and have been a car geek all my life. Got my dad to thank for that. He had all kinds of cars and collected all kinds of car stuff his whole life--cars, diecast, art, brochures, tin toys, T/Q midgets. You name it, if it had wheels he was into it... As soon as I can I'll get a couple pics of dad's '39 Willys coupe and '34 Ford convertible coupe posted up to show just how far back my rod roots go... Most of my life I've been into muscle cars--mostly Mopars with a smattering of Bowties thrown in. But I could SO give up the muscle car stuff up for a rod... and it doesn't have to be much of a rod at that. The muscle car world can really get polluted with unimportant crap like matching numbers, paint daubs and OE restorations. Guess that's fine for some, but I want to drive the wheels off anything I have and also not be one of 100 just like mine at a show... I've also been into drawing cars as long as I could hold a pencil. Been lurking here enjoying the Friday Art Shows and am awestruck by the talent the guys here have. Their art makes mine look like crap, but at least I'm making a nice side income with my art, am drawing constantly, and am the most prolific I've been in my entire life. So it's all good... Look forward to meeting some of the guys local to me and to going to runs, shows and whatever to further torture myself with thoughts of a rod... See y'all around!
