A little about me...
Today is Christmas day and I am re-doing my profile. I am making it easier to read and understand who I am. The information is still the same because I haven't changed.
I am 65 years young. Still very active. I retired from the Post Office as a rural carrier with 38 years total time and have been working a part-time job driving a van that takes handicaped adults to day care centers.
I am into cars and have been since I was 2. I have some old cars like my Thunderbird, Lincoln MK V, and my 71 Charger that I ordered while I was in Vietnam and still have. I do like my Mercedes Sports car too. I still build model cars and go to a lot of shows around the eastern states. I have built them on a professional level doing prototypes for Danbury Mint and they sell around the world now.
I have my own shop for restoring old race cars and have won over a dozen awards at shows like the one at Keeneland each year. I get to go to a lot of shows from Canada to Florida to California. After having my cars on 6 magazines covers it never gets old.
I was married for 31 Years and got divorced and it's a long story but we still stay friends because we have 2 sons together (41 & 36) and there is no need to fight anymore.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am a "Do it yourself" type of person. Always fixing things and doing things for other people. I like to help people when I can. I get a lot of satisfaction doing it. I do my own cooking, laundry, cleaning, and anything else that needs to be done.
I like to treat a woman like a lady. I am old fashion and still like to open the doors for her, Help her with her coat and buy her little things when she least suspected it. I still like to bring home flowers or send a little card just to say I am thinking of you.
I am a conservitive and do not believe in obama at all. I don't think I would get along with a liberal because of our differences.
I might be a dull boy to some people because I don't drink, I don't smoke, and I have never tried drugs. That makes it Zero, Zero, & Zero for the bad habits. I would rather not have someone that smokes or does drugs but if they like to have some wine or a beer at times I wouldn't mind that as long as they don't get drunk all the time.
I like to travel a lot and go someplace just about every month. I have been to FL twice, NJ, MI, DC, NC, AL, GA, OH, IN, TN, CT, PA & TX this year and have plans to go to AZ next year along with the states above that I go each year.
I'd just like to add...
I spent 4 years in the Air Force loading bombs on Fighter Aircraft. I have my own shop in Downtown Lexington where I restore old race cars. I do a lot of my traveling with them. I hope to find a lady that likes to travel and sometimes little quick trips for the weekend.
I like to go out to eat at some nice places but sometimes a stop to eat out when we wouldn't want to fix something at home. I like going to movies and to some live music. I like Renfro Valley for some country music and I also like things like Trans Siberian orchestra and the Boston Pops. I like all kinds of music except rap. I did say "Music" didn't I. I like to walk in the parks and hold hands. I like to go to the beach and walk the beach at night. That is so relaxing.
I do a Car Guessing game that I host on the computer for learning about old cars and I post clues 6 days a week while they e-mail me the guesses. I have fun trying to fool them and they like trying to get the right answer.
So that is it. At least a good start. I don't have anything to hide and just told it like it is. If you are interested send me a message and if you have any questions Just ASK. I hope you see that I am one of the "Good Guys".

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
I like to go for walks in the parks and at the beach. My legs don't let me go as far as I use to but I still enjoy it. I don't do any camping but did camp out last month in Florida with my buddy while he was doing his Civil War re-enactments at the Suwanne RIver music park in northern FL. Lots of fun doing everything the old way including sleeping out in Period correct tents
I like UK sports and if you see a big #1 (5 foot tall) sign at the airport when UK returns or at some of the pep rallys that is me or my son. I still have my sign from 1978
Crafts and Creating
I restore old race cars and build Hot Rods. I still build Model Cars and compete around the country with them. Some of mine are 52 years old. I built some of them for Danbury Mint on a professional level and they were copied and sold world wide.
