Charles & Kiju


I moved to Los Angeles from Gulfport, MS when I was in high school and that was when I developed my love for cars. My first car was a 1965 Mustang convertible and I used to cruise Van Nuys Blvd every Wednesday night for many years always admiring the muscle cars and low riders from a distance as I could not afford them. I purchased my first Corvette in 1989. It was a 1987 grey hardtop. The next year a good friend of mine, who was a professional poker player, won a brand new 1990 red Corvette at a Bicycle Club poker tournament. Two weeks later he had to sell it very quickly to settle a debt and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. I owned both Corvettes until I purchased a home in 1993 and had to sell them and get an SUV for the frequent trips to Home Depot.

For many years I would see classic Corvettes and Chevy Bel Airs on the streets or at car shows and always told myself one day I would own one. Finally after many years of waiting I now own a 1959 Corvette and have just purchased a 1957 Bel Air. They are both Viper Red customs.






My beautiful wife Kiju hails from South Korea and is a modern girl. She much prefers her Tesla 85D and all of its amazing technology. I have to admit her car is impressive even for an old technology challenged classic car buff like myself.

When we purchased it I was driving a 550 hp Caddy CTS V coupe which I thought was fast until I drove the Tesla! It is a very impressive car.

 

Last and yes least, my daily driver is a Dodge Ram 2500 pickup truck which now the “Home Depot car”.
