"My first old school car was a 1976 Galant back in 1989. I've had 14 Galants since then but not all at the same time. I buy, fix and sell all kinds of Galants. I only recently got into the L-Types," says Pete. He also supplies a lot of rare parts to enthusiasts. "It became a hobby that grew into something bigger. Now I am sending parts abroad."
