I sold the car in 2017 to Mark Worman of Graveyard Carz. It was used on their show Season 8 Episode 3. It has been for sale a few times in 2019, most recently at the RM Sotheby’s auction car corral section in Auburn, IN.
1989 Dodge Caravan SE Turbo – Also known as #racevan – I modified this factory turbo van with a ton of go fast goodies but wanted to keep the sleeper original look (Dodge shadow struts, bigger turbo, bigger injectors, factory TII intercooler, upgraded Walbro fuel pump, ported intake, 2.5 inch swingvalve and downpipe, electric exhaust cutout, Gillis manual boost valve, custom a-pillar gauges, custom stage 2 calibration)

1984 Chevrolet Celebrity CL Eurosport clone – This car had a factory 4 speed manual transmission mated to the 4 cylinder ‘Iron Duke’. I added the NOS Eurosport badges and painted the Eurosport red stripe around the car. The previous owner had it repainted a GM graphite color and added the Lumina LTZ wheels along with a Pontiac Firebird spoiler. This car was featured on Jalopnik right after I bought it from Iowa.

I ported and polished the upper and lower intake along with cleaning and painting all of the bits before I bolted them back on the 2.3L IHI turbocharged 4 cylinder mated to the 5 speed manual gearbox. The unique part about this particular bird, was the fact it was the last year of the fox-body and had every available option including the two-tone leather seats.

1989 Chevrolet Caprice 9C1 – This particular police packaged Caprice was a constable car powered by a factory 350 V8 fuel injected engine. I found this car through word of mouth that led me to a storage unit where I found it, in fairly good shape with 113k miles. It had all the heavy duty parts on it from the engine down to the suspension. I sold it to a NYPD officer who has added a ton of period correct police items in and on it.
1989 Chevrolet Caprice Classic – 305 TBI V8, 9C1 interior, tons of spare parts came with this one. Bought it about 2 mins after seeing it for sale at a local car show. Makes it the third Caprice I have owned.
1981 Chevrolet Caprice Classic coupe – I was given this car from my late friend’s grandpap. That owner was Billy Mays’s uncle, you know, the Oxy Clean pitchman. It was powered by the anemic 229ci V6 and having sat for many years, once I started driving it literally leaked every fluid from the transmission, gas tank, and brake fluid. I sold it to some guys in Ohio who dropped a 383 stroker motor under the hood.
1983 Mercury Zephyr – Two tone silver on charcoal metallic -62k original miles 3.3 straight 6 engine, red bench seat interior. This was one of the most forgotten Fox Body platform cars of its day, and the Fairmont/Zephyr was actually what started it all. It made it home 200+ miles without a single issue
SOLD!!! via Bring a Trailer

1981 Ford Fairmont Futura – This odd little car was a slow, yet comfortable daily driver packing an underpowered 200ci straight 6 under the hood. I bought it at the All Ford Nationals in Carlisle, PA during the summer of 2014. It was all original, except for the carpet and headliner that I replaced.
1978 Mercury Zephyr Z-7 – This car was cursed from the day I took delivery. Purchased from eBay, I had it shipped from Kentucky to Pittsburgh and only put 1 mile on it. It was a unique factory bucket seat, floor shifter, 302 V8 car that had so many issues from sitting 12 years in an old guy’s garaged car collection I had to sell it as a project car. It ended up in Ohio somewhere…
2007 Buick Lucerne CXL – Aftermarket wheels, heated and cooled leather seats, sunroof, bought from an estate locally, needless to say I basically had this one sold before I got it
1987 Buick Riviera – Dark grey metallic – All original, touch screen CRT, full digital dash, 3800 V6, full maintenance history, 70k miles. This one ended up going to Kansas
1996 Buick Regal Custom – Original Florida car, purchased in March 2018, sold 4 hours later. Purchased again April 2019. Sold 5 hours later. First time it went to my neighbor across the street, second time it went to my neighbor next door. Granted it did need some tlc both times I bought it.

1974 Chrysler Newport – Weighing over 2 tons, this 400ci big block powered American land yacht had 20k original miles on it. I daily drove this for 2 months in the fall of 2018, but could not deal with the 9mpg average fuel economy. Not to mention the AM radio was neat, and worked, but I couldn’t deal with talk radio every day during my morning commute to work.
1978 Ford Granada – I purchased it from the late owner’s son right down the road from me. It had the 302 V8 under the hood and only 35k miles on the odometer. I owned it for a little while, drove it daily, and sold it with 36,400 miles on it. Sadly, the person I sold it too decided to lie about the car when he went to resell it, saying it came from an estate (making it sound like I was dead). It popped up on Barnfinds.com a year later with only a few miles difference from when I sold it.

1982 Chevrolet Camaro Berlinetta – I bought this 67k mile beauty for the summer of 2018, and it was all original (had Z/28 wheels and the original Berlinetta ones too). It had the factory rear wiper as an option along with t-tops and an aftermarket dual exhaust.
1986 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z – This car was my late uncle’s. I bought it when his daughter traded it in at a Mercedes dealership. It only had 40k miles on it and was one of the cleanest examples of this generation Camaro around. At the time, this was parked in the garage while my 2 year old Mustang GT/CS sat outside. I decided to sell it to give the inside spot to my Mustang.
1982 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 – I bought this car from the original owner who only put 70k miles on it, then parked it in his garage around 2002 where it sat until the fall of 2016. It had the 305 4bbl V8 and was a factory non a/c car. It came with the original window sticker, and retailed for $11,670 back in 1982.
1999 Chevrolet Camaro – I was daily driving this during the summer of 2018, and planned on using it as my winter vehicle too. I bought this for $1,700 off Craigslist (original MSRP was $24,456) and only had to put new tires and a starter in it. I added the vinyl stripes later. It had the original window stickers, showing a list of odd options, 3800 V6, sport appearance package, sport handling package, limited slip rear axle, t-tops, and a 12 disc CD-changer. I drove it to 100k miles and sold it to buy my 2003 Durango R/T.
1998 Pontiac Firebird – Another vehicle purchased from a friend’s car collection. It was a V6, sport appearance package optioned car. The coolest part was the custom made subwoofer box in the back that housed 2 Polk Momo subs and the amplifier. It had 121k miles on it and didn’t really show it. My buddy had owned it for 15 years prior to selling it.
1992 Dodge Dynasty LE Brougham – 23k original miles, 3.3L V6 engine, padded rear roof, had the original double whitewall tires (replaced now), cloth interior
1987 Plymouth Caravelle SE – This was a Craigslist score for the ages, it was all original with only 47k miles on it. I bought it from the 90 some year old original owner. She gave up driving and was happy to see someone excited about her little car when I showed up to buy it. Not even lying, she was going to donate it so I gave her $575 for it.
1986 Dodge 600 Coupe – All original 88k miles, tan, on tan, on tan, bucket seats with a floor shift automatic, 2.5L 4 cyl, garage kept
1988 Dodge Shadow Highline Turbo – I found this gem on Craigslist, and purchased it from the original owner. This Shadow had just over 100k miles on it and was powered by the 2.2 Turbo motor. It came with every piece of paperwork including the original lease paperwork and window sticker. There was one professional repaint due to it being vandalized outside of Heinz Field after a football game.
1995 Ford Thunderbird LX – This was the second car I ever owned, was my daily driver through my college years, and had the 4.6 V8 under the hood. Some of the mods I did were 97 Tbird wheels, muffler delete, resonator delete, and hollowed out the third catalytic converter.
1992 Ford Thunderbird Sport – This T-Bird was a Marti Report documented 1 of 1 after being broken down per option. It is the only car I have owned to my knowledge of being a one of a kind. I drove to Huber Heights, Ohio to purchase it with only 123k miles on the odometer. Ford only made 7,074 Thunderbird Sport models in 1992.
1997 Ford Thunderbird LX Limited Edition – The opportunity came up to buy this true Limited Edition, so I did. It had the 3.8l V6, 87k miles, and all the proper Limited Edition bits (badging, striping, embroidered floor mats)
1997 Ford Thunderbird LX Limited Edition clone – I bought this as a daily driver. It had the 4.6 V8, rear window louvers, and chrome wheels. I cut the mufflers off and installed turn downs. After finding some ‘Limited Edition’ badges on eBay, I decided to paint some Limited Edition silver stripes on it and install the badges.
1997 Ford Thunderbird LX – It had 40k miles on the odometer, but the rear suspension cradle was completely rotted out. I bought it to fix and sell, along with swap parts on to my other 97 Tbird at the time. This car came with a NOS seat cover and had the 4.6 V8 under the hood.
1990 Ford Thunderbird Supercoupe – I found this for sale in Chardon, Ohio with 37k miles on the odometer. This Tbird had the supercharged 3.8 V6 under the hood, and I added a 10% overdrive pulley for more boost as well as removed the mufflers for better exhaust flow. I drove this car hard on the street and track before trading it in on my 2014 Mustang GT/CS.
1996 Ford Mustang GT Cobra clone – Cobra (bumpers, hood, badging, wheels), 5 speed manual, Spectre cold air intake, 38k original miles. Sold and is now living in New York somewhere

It came with all the original booklets, audio cassettes, and was sold new with 79 miles on the odometer at Benson Lincoln Mercury here in Pittsburgh, PA.
2000 Dodge Intrepid ES – My mom bought this car brand new in 2000, and I bought it from her with 99k miles on it. I drove it daily for a year and a half before selling it with 115k miles. I put Intrepid R/T wheels and spoiler on it, along with a Magnaflow exhaust. It had the 3.2 V6 engine and my mom specifically ordered it without traction control or ABS brakes.
2003 Mercury Grand Marquis GS – This was my daily driven panther platform mashup. In the summer I ran Marauder wheels on it, winter time black powder coated steelies. It had Marauder headlights, corner lights, tail lights, grill, and trunk panel. I installed a Go Rhino pushbar on it, along with a RhinoLip lower bumper valance and fog lights. It took first in class at the All Ford Nationals 2016. I sold it to a guy who flew in and drove it home to Nevada.
1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo – This was my dream muscle car and I purchased it when I was only 21 years old. After blowing the motor, I pulled it and replaced it with a built small block 350 V8 with a bunch of Edelbrock goodies bolted to it. I sold the car to fund the purchase of my 2014 Mustang GT/CS.
1963 Chevrolet Corvair Monza – I got this as a project and never got a chance to get it running and driving. Prior to my ownership, it had been restored once and driven for a while before being parked and left to deteriorate.
1987 Ford Escort GL – I bought this for $50 and daily drove it for a year and a half. It had 40k miles on it and I added a factory Escort GT spoiler, GT wheels, fog lights, along with a Magnaflow muffler.

1999 Dodge Intrepid – I bought this non running Intrepid to use as a parts car to fix my 2000 Intrepid that had been hit on the driver’s side. This one had the blown 2.7 under the hood and was surprisingly clean. It donated two doors, a fender, and a factory rearview mirror with compass and thermostat.
1999 Pontiac Grand Am – Purchased from a friend, this car was a basket case but I did find someone who was going to fix it versus just scrapping it. This was it leaving on the tow truck.
