Welcome to CarSmarts Radio - an endeavor of passion
Cars are in my blood...no question about it. It was inherited from father who grew up in the little country town (at the time) of Warrington, Pennsylvania. People were more self-sufficient back then and it didn't hurt that the Holbert family lived close by. Dad got involved with wrenching and racing and that passion never left him. I was 10 years old when I worked in the auto parts store he had in the mid-70's. I loved everything about the place - the smell, the parts, the cars.
In 1982, my parents helped me purchase a 1979 Pontiac Trans Am. It was my dream car at the time and to own it and drive it to high school each day was surreal, to say the least. I kept it for 10 years and sold it only so I could get another dream car...a 1987 Buick Grand National. Dad was always a Buick man so it brought me great pleasure to give him a ride in that car a few months before he passed away in 1993.
I've now been through a few GMC Syclones and Typhoons, been part of several car clubs, car shows, forums, and projects over the years. With the advent of YouTube and growing popularity and accessibility, I now enter the realm of "creator" and hope to provide fresh and entertaining content for the radio show that will be supported by video and other social media.
I also enjoy helping people with their cars - buying, selling, cleaning- and I'm always seeking barn finds (any left?!). I've lived in Las Vegas, Utah, California (cars!), and now back home in Pennsylvania.
Thanks for visiting the site!! ~Steve
