Profile for user ahight - Country: USA (United States of America)
I'm a big 80's movie lover as well as an 80's car lover. I also enjoy watching movies/tv shows that were filmed here in Wilmington, NC. Even if they're not that great of shows to watch...I enjoy watching for scenes where I then like to figure out where exactly they filmed it.
My favorite cars are also 80's. Growing up I owned an '86 BMW 325. I always wanted a 320i, and look forward to the time where I can find a decently kept one and purchase it to have as a project car. My first car in high school was a rare 1983 Honda Civic 1500S that I wish i never would have gotten rid of. I'm also a big VW fan. I learned how to drive clutch on my uncle's Super Beetle. In high school i always wanted a '83 GTI but it wasn't until I got my first job out of college when I traded in my BMW in for a '97 Jetta GLX VR6. Now I own a '78 Westy Bus that i'm working on, my '00 Silverado and my '99 Passat wagon that I hope to keep for awhile since i'm not too big of a fan of the newer models.
My car history:
Besides my car love...my other love is related, but on a smaller scale. I love shopping for Matchbox/Hotwheels cars. Most of my collection are of VW's but I do have old Porsche, Mercedes and BMW cars that I've had growing up. I've only got a few of the old Superfasts and hope to collect the new releases. I've also still got some of my collection of World Class Matchbox cars from the late 80's. These were always my favorite since they had the rubber tires and painted details like chrome moldings, headlights and tail lights.
While I love cars...the one thing I will admit to is not remembering the exact names of cars. So forgive me if you see a bunch of "unknowns" in some of my movie listings.
