Welcome to Perks Garage! This blog will be used to discuss my passion for all things automotive. I will share my views, opinion and perspectives on cars, tuning, specs and events that I attend throughout the year, and yes there will be pics as well. Now I admit that I am not the greatest photog, but in my head I am just as good as a Marcel Bischler or a Jeremy Cliff, look them up if you don’t already know. I will be interviewing other enthusiast and showcasing builds along the way.
Now that we got that out of the way, let me start by introducing myself. I’m Mike and have been in love with cars since I was about 10, which was a looooong time ago. I am not afraid to work on my own cars, from regular maintenance and stereos to installing custom suspension and body kits. My first memory of driving was in my sisters Honda Civic when I was about 12 or so. At that moment I was in love and knew driving would be my sanctuary. My first automotive love was the 88 Honda CRX SI. When most boys were drooling over their dads dirty mags, I had the Honda car brochure spread eagle on my bedroom wall with the CRX centerfold enticing my dreams. I would rush home and thumb thru the brochure everyday, going between the CRX and the Prelude. It was torture since driving a car was years away…legally that is, and owning one was even further. In my years, I have owned a number of vehicles and I have modified every last one of them with the exception for my 85 CRX (funny story about that one). Needless to say my hobby
drove drives my wife crazy, as I am sure it would most wives. In the last 2 years, I tried to convince my wife that owning 5 vehs for 2 drivers with a 2.5 car garage was a great idea. With that, I am now banned from buying another car for quite some time now 🙂 I’ve gone from Tercels with big wheels to slammed Accords. From RonJon kitted TL’s to stretched and poked Quattro TT’s. In the words of the great philosopher of this new generation imported direct from Canada “Started from the bottom, now we here!” – Drake 2014 lol
Now with that brief intro, I give you Perks Garage!
Welcome and enjoy the ride.
