Bio & Contact

Hi all … a little about me!

Yep, it is the Car Guy from Elmira (NY)!  I was infected at a very early age with Car Fever!  Growing up my parents started out by taking me with them to the local short tracks of NY on Friday and Saturday nights to watch their friends run at Dundee and Chemung.  To add more to the mix growing up “we” were pretty much a Ford family!  My parents purchased new full sized Ford Convertibles from 2 to 5 years apart  from the time I was 3 right up till the mid seventies!  Yeah I remember my parents purchasing their new 1961 SunLiner  Convertible, their 64 Galaxie 500 XL Convertible, and a 69 XL Convertible and crying after leaving the family friend for the new model.  I recently found the window sticker to those and a few other cars and trucks that they bought new.  Sprinkle in my Grandmothers 1957 Buick Special Rivera Hardtop and my Dads first antique car a Model T Roadster and well the car bug as well as Convertibles have  became the order to this day …  Thanks Mom & Dad it has been a GREAT RIDE!

I have been involved with several Local and even more Nationals Car Clubs for many years!  I am currently a:
Member and Past President of the NY/PA Twin Tiers Vintage Car Club Inc. (My Dad is also a past President of this club which was formerly a Ford Club).
Member and Senior Master Judge for the AACA (Antique Automobile Club of America).
Member of the BCA (Buick Club of America).
Register and keeper of  M.O.R.E. (Marquette Owners Registry for Enthusiasts).
Member of the Upstate NY Thunderbird Club.
Member of, North West District Advisor, International Convention Judge and Judging Team Captain for the  ITC (International Thunderbird Club).
Member of SAN (SEMA Action Network).
I have also been an Antique Classic and Special Interest Vehicle Appraiser since 1982 and have been found to be a Expert Trial Witness in court cases involving the same type of vehicles that I appraise.

Well that pretty much sums it up … Just the Car Guy from Elmira!
