1.  How did you get into old cars/trucks?

Looking back now, at 35, I lived a few streets away from the main cruising scene when I was younger.  I remember the horns, music, and happy hollering that was going on.  I could hear that from the front yard.  I would make my way out there on my lowrider bike to look at the awesome rides cruising up and down.  One day out there, I saw a line of bombs pulling up to a car wash that had me amazed.  Seeing that line up made me a bomb guy.  Back then, I did not know what year, make or modal they were…but that’s what I wanted…A Classic.



2.  What was the first chevy bomb vehicle you owned?
The first bomb I bought was not a Chevy. It was a 1937 Chrysler Royal. A fewmonths later, I bought a 1937 Chevy truck.  Back then, I never thought I would own one of this year.  Thinking that, they were not available, very few, and were way too expensive for an 18 year old to own.

3.  Which Chevy Bomb is your all-time favorite?
My favorite bomb is a 1937 Chevy coupe/rag top. I lean to the coupe…

4.  What have you gotten out of
What I have gotten out off the site is that I got to see and meet some great people with the same love for the classic ride. Being able to see some beautiful rides and projects as well. Getting great ideas off of other rides and giving them also.

5. As a Veterano, is there anything you would like to share to the world?

.. If u have a wish, a vision, or a want.
…  Your age, your knowledge or your ability..
…Will not hold you back. It’s how bad do u want it?
…You can have it, You can build it,
you can do it!!
