Kinda wild how much they auction old muscle off for these days.

Something else I noticed these days....

It is't about building a car anymore as much as what you can buy...

they were hard to beat on the race track.

The '68 Superbee was a handfull for less than $3,100 !
A guy I worked with in the late 60's asked me to do a hole shot with his brand new Road Runner, he got seriously pissed at all the rubber I removed from his tires. I was not ready for such piss-poor traction.

LOL... oops

I worked up at the corner Shell Station and was up hanging out with a friend who was at work one night. I had to leave to pick up my girlfriend and he yells out "GET IT".

So I side stepped the clutch pulling out onto the street and it squatted down in the back, lifted in the front and took off . What I did not know was that coming across the drain gully the Mickeys picked up and threw every stone they passed over and put out the front window of the station.

Ended up fired, my check went to replacing the window and my so called friend suggested to Tony the owner that he should probably sue me for the balance...

little asshole still says hello to me when we cross paths to this day.

in it...

It shocked the hell out of more than a few Mustangs...

actually the fastest I ever went in a car was in a Pantera in 1972 when Red (Mark) Bonn who lived two houses down from us took me for a ride up a 4 lane road. We did over 180, I know this because I stopped looking at the speedo at 180 and we kept going faster.

He made me promise not to tell my mother or he wouldn't be allowed to barrow her Station Wagon to drive the Little League players to games.

lol, that was one fast car...

had a couple chevies

Monza 2+2 with a 383 cid small blockfor a period of time and while in the service one of the cars I had was a Vega Business Coup with a 283 Fuel Injected 63 Vette mouse motor and 2 speed power glide stuffed into it. Got in loads of trouble on base with that, seems I had a thing about chunking up speed bumps...

Yup, and her and her

husband won't admit it, to this day, that they had a problem (they ran afoul of the law), I am not looking for redemption or whatever from them but I am raising the kids and they are unsupportive in every way.....I am glad to have my GS bud's to talk too (and my wife) otherwise I would go crazy!

ho ho ho.. Cars on the agenda tonight again tonight huh..good stuff..

Guys got good new today from the VA on "bennies".. So... go go go rah rah rah.. gimie a V.. gimie a A.. put it all together and whats it spell...ok.. making myself sick..

Back on later for update and a bit of "social" time if you all are up.. Lee. those pics are in the mail. sure you guys saw Vaq's offer to scan for me back a couple days ago.. This had to do with the MC thread.. Pard i sent bunch of pics, but only bout 6-7 (marked on back) that i was hopping you could scan and email back..

Think i've talked about my first car a lot of times.. Know i've told daisy anyway.. My first car was a 1959 Jaguar XK150 3,4L roadster (body work comes right up to back of the seats) as opposed to a drop head coupe that is "sorta" bigger.. I bought the car in 66 after working the summer at Laidlaw steel and wire (coat hangers co).. The only reason i was able to get it, living at home and all was that Gary was home on leave, and conviced Pop that it was a good buy. paid 1500 for it.. Priceless today..(ok, way expensive) cause of the reason i sold it..

Had an auto transmission.. Jag had a deal with borg warner, and they made a few..(VERY few) 150's with auto transmission.. This was the same year that the company had a major fire, and lost like half of their production before shipping.. The number of Jag 150's with auto was like 1K of that less than half were exported L hand drive.. of that only a few were not coupe.. Obviously the auto goes in a coupe.. But they made like 15 or so exported roadsters..

Yep the geez had one.. i could go on for ever on this.. took it down to augie and earls gas station in Peoria (Augie and Earl were a couple WWII buds) they had never seen one.. took us like an hour to find the battery's.. See if any of you guys know where they were on XK's.. The "bonnet" had winner of LeMans 1953, 54, 55 on it..(might be off a bit but this was in that old heavy chrome.) hood opened to nothing but engine.. twin overhead cams.. SU carbs on one side and exhaust manifold on the other.. Red with black leather.. wood dash.. the transmission was under the dash.. U shaped like the corvair.. big ol saucer plate sized black on white gauges.. wire wheels with a brass hammer..

WOW WOW WOW. I bout it in May, went in the service before the end of the year.. Was told at Great Lakes on day one that we couldn't have cars at our new bases following boot camp.. To be honest .. While i love the car, remember it was a 7 year old no bid deal then.. drew a lot of looks on Main st.. yep.. got me gals.. (really did.. Bradley University coeds) but of course had no idea what it would be in the future.. The real reason i sold it was i wanted a 4 speed.. So called home from boot camp and sure enough Pop sold it quick..2K .. we thought it was a great deal.. Maybe this was the start of me being a lop huh.. what ever gospel true story..(you guys know me) . It wasn't all that fast, but wow was it cool..

My next car was after boot camp when i found out i could have a car after all.. i bought (pop arranged the deal thru a friend of his) a Rambler.. Yep.. blue and white. The jag never let me down.. the Rambler lost a wheel on the way to Millington TN for A school.. "bartered" a new front spindle.. then blew the head gasket.. Replaced it, and sold it before coming back home before B school.. next was my 3 year old 1965 Mustang... 4 SPEED.. ah the memorys.. foods ready.. later all..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Cameo would be nice. Kinda nostalgic, yall talking cars and pavement. Most all of my old high school buds had the same cars yall had. I had trucks and gravel roads, or no road. I wouldn't change a thing. Hauling cattle to the auction, dragging cotton trailers to the gin. You learn pretty quick you can make most anything move. Stopping it is a different story! sigh

Yeah, up in Maine trucks and cars used like they were trucks until the guy driving it could get a truck where the thing.

A few, Very Few, rode motorcycles in all weather and before sun-up on foggy mornings the trailers were invisable. One of the bikes smacked into one doing a fair clip. He did not survive.

Dad had one he still talks about. Apparently they had side pockets in the back. He swore you could ice down a case of beer in them and make it all the way to Acuna, Mexico and back on a tank of gas. I wonder what they did in Mexico? HAHA!!

Avantis.. Didn't know about the lark frame.. Knew that the same guy (raymond lowrey) who did the golden hawk did the avanti. Don't know about the original, later issues had chevy engines.

Saint.. supercharged hawk.. did you get to drive it.. this was the GT package right, with the paxton supercharger.. wow.

My baby

edit: I guess it didn't like my original pic. Trying again.
This isn't actually my car. I realized I don't have any pictures of my baby. I need to rectify that. But this is the closest I can find to my 2005 Chrysler 300C. Mine is midnight blue:

I am going to be buried in this.
