    Default Howdy from Texas!

    Hi All!
    I can't believe what a bunch of awesome rides everyone has on this site!
    I'm new on here, so let me tell ya a bit about myself...
    First of all, I'm a 53 year old FEMALE, married car fanatic! I have 4 kids-my 2 oldest are both in the US ARMY-can you tell I'm proud?! My time is spent taking care of my family. I love to cook, fish, gamble, go to car shows, and I've just recently been introduced to drag racing with my 78 El Camino. I've always wanted an El Camino, and had to pester the guy who had "mine" for over a year before he finally gave in and sold it to me! I knew I'd own this car eventually, and now 4 years later, I'm still as thrilled with it as I was the day I got it! I have a real blast with it! It's definitely NOT what people expect an old lady to drive! I even got a trophy at a local "low riders" car show this past May! I was probably the oldest and only female entrant in the show! What a fun day that was!! I grew up around muscle cars, and was taught how to change the oil, tires, and do a complete tune up on my dad's 68 GTO when I was 10 years old!! So, it makes me happy to see my oldest Son has also inherited the love of cars. I think he's more of a car freak than I ever was, though! I've met some awesome people over the years through our mutual love of cars. Thanks for such a decent site, and I'm glad to be a part of it. I look forward to reading the different threads and talking with all of you folks!

    Thanks for the welcome, Marcel.
    I should've clarified that I have a daughter AND a son in the Army. Most people assume it's "boys" in the military-but in our family us girls take on anything the boys do! lol
    I'll try to find where I stashed the links to my drag racing videos and post on here.
    Again-thanks so much for the welcome and for such an awesome site.
    Terry

    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
