About Me

Revving Up

Good afternoon from sunny Miami, Florida. I’m Patrick James. I feel like there should be something with more “oomph” about my introduction, but this is who I am.

First off. Thanks for checking out my new blog.

I decided to start this thing because my girlfriend, Lindsay, said I needed to make some friends or start a blog.

Apparently I “go on and on” about cars – and she’s tired of “smiling and nodding”.

I have to admit, before I started setting up this damn thing, I thought writing a blog would be easier than going out and finding people I liked and who liked me back.

If you build it, they will come, amirite?
