How old were you when you started being interested in cars?

Which do you prefer: Imports or Domestics? Why?
I prefer American Muscle cars because I like the power and sound of a cammed V8!
What is your most current project? How long have you been working on it?
My current project is my 2005 Mustang GT.
I been working on it for 3 years. I stared with putting racing cams, valve lash adjusters, and followers. Then in August 2017 I looked in to building it in to a 2014, after a couple weeks of reaching I bought a totaled 2014 mustang 5.0 track pack as my donor car. On April 2nd 2018 I started taking my car apart to the body. 16 days later I built it to a complete 2014 mustang in a 2005 body. I also had a couple friends from our car group that would stop by and give me a hand a few times with my car project.
What was your very first car?
My first car was a 1984 Mercury Grand Marquis.
