I started collecting cars when I was 3. I have always been interested in cars and how they run. I have more than 60 cars in my collection. My most favorite cars are Chevys, Fords, Dodges and Corvettes. I like older models the best because the body style is sleek and the wide whitewall tires look classic. Also, they are more valuable since they aren’t made any more.

When I was young, my father had sports cars, like a black Corvette, a white Mustang Cobra Super Snake and a white Mercedes E550. That’s what made me become interested in cars. I also remember riding in it with my dad, and those are great memories.

My favorite model is my 1950s round-body Corvette Stingray in brown with white panels. Another favorite is my NASCAR Mobil 1 Chevy Supersport that I have repainted to look like the real thing. I hope to get more cars for my birthday or Christmas.

When I grow up I hope to own a black 2005 Corvette Stingray convertible. I’ll look mighty cool driving around town with my brother and my dad.
