Note: Due to a technical issue, PT Garages are presently view-only, meaning existing garages cannot be edited, and new garages cannot be created for the time being. We appreciate the irony that a website dedicated to old cars is having trouble due to a piece of software from 2012. In our defense, software rusts much faster than metal.

While we work on fixing and improving the system, we invite you to look through the nearly 400 garages that are already on the site (which can be searched using the "Search PT Garages" link above), and to check out the Project Updates and Multimedia & Photography forums for more great builds.

    Story / History
    The car has been a part of my life since the age of 13 when I returned home from the movie Corvette Summer and decided that I absolutely had to have a car ASAP. In the following decades, it saw many lives including a near fatal crash. The car was rebuilt to t's current iteration. spawned business, Twist Machine which offers paddle shifter systems for hot rods. The company has since been sold, but the car remains a part of our family -- with paddle shifter intact.
    The AAR 'cuda inspired stripe was designed by Chris Brown in Los Angeles. Though the paint scheme was designed as counterculture, it has proven quite popular over the years.
    At present, the car is mostly used as daily transportation. It handles great, has great power, and fits like a glove.
