Welcome to the Garage

Welcome to Strike Zero's Garage!!

This is my little spot to share a my automotive/powersport/motorsport hobby.

During the day, I'm just an ordinary guy making a living in Information Technology. Yes, I am your average computer nerd and my entire house is the equivalent to a small data center . . . LOL!!

However, after I put down the keyboard and mouse, I tend to pickup wrenches and ratchets to do two things:
  1. Maintain all the vehicles for DD use and road trip operation
  2. Build some really neat cars!!
No I can't weld or design trick suspension parts, but I think I do ok my little two car garage for a weekender :D

I've participated in several AutoX and tracks events with SCR-SCCA, Tarheel Sportscar Club/Triangle Z Club, NASA, BMWCCA, and Asphalt Ventures. I did pretty well in 2006 with SCR-SCCA and took the Street Modified title in my 325is (no it did not have a M3 motor, turbos, or a V12).

Currently in the garage and driveway:
  • 1988 Volvo 780
  • 1993 BMW 318is: Gas Sipper
  • 1993 BMW 325is => 350is: Track Rat
  • 1994 BMW 530i
  • 1997 BMW 740i
  • 1998 Honda VFR800FI
  • 2000 Dodge Dakota: V8
Everything is driveway is manual transmission (except the Volvo and the 740i . . . but you will see that change here in the blogs in the coming months) and ready to make a road trip (except the 325is/350is - more on that later :D)

Enough of the intro and welcome . . . Look forward to updates and snips about the on-going projects of Strike Zero's Garage!!



Howdy!!
