About the Web-Site
My name is Travis Cornwell and I am the creater of
MainStreetLA. This website started back in 1997 as an
idea between my friend Drake and I. We spent hours
looking for pictures of cars like our own. We wanted some
ideas about how we could fix ours up. The original plan
was to get pictures of custom cars and post them here
so everyone can check them out. The website grew from
an idea, to a school project, then a hobby. Its really
one of those hobbies you never have enough time for though.
I don't have a budget, really I'm broke... Ha-ha.
Design, graphics, and programming done myself. Its
turning out to be a lot of work, but I have learned along
the way, and its beginning to come together. Enjoy.
a student at Southeastern
Louisiana University in Hammond, LA. majoring in Industrial
Technology with an automated systems concentration and
a minor in Computer Science. It occupies most of
my time. The rest of my time is usually spent working
on my POS 95 eclipse. Worked various jobs. Warehouse forklift
operator, lumber truck driver, flipped burgers, and swung
a shovel a few times. Currently I inspect/survey bulk
cargo barges along the Mississippi river, for SAI Gulf.
The river is a busy place and I see lots of interesting
things. We also collect and analyze coke and coal samples
for our lab. Its a dirty job and reminds me why I'm in
Until the motor blew in 2001, I used to drive a 'wanna
be pimped out' 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS and is the reason
I started this website. Since then, the interest
in custom cars has spread everywhere. Now,
finding car pic's on the web seems to be a much easier
task. Guess I'm saying they beat me to it, but I
have learned alot and hey, I can still try to do it better!
