TALKING ABOUT CARS FROM YOUR YOUTH OR CURRENT!

If your up to it. Post pictures of your hot rods you had in your youth or current!

It's a slow week...........

I grew up around fast cars but never owned one myself. Being a child of the 60's-70's. I can remember a lot of factory fast hot rods that rolled off the assembly line ready to go! 8-)

You woman out there I know had fast cars! :D

If you never owned a hot rod. At least show pictures of your dream car you WISH you could own! :D

My dream car is being shown below! My dad had a 1957 Chevy convertible he sold many, many years ago. He also had a 1968 Chevy Camaro 327 C.I.

Re: POST PICTURES OF YOUR PAST/CURRENT HOT RODS!

Oh my goodness, Your Dad had a jewel with this car. Everyone growing up in the 50's drooled over the 50's cars and worked hard to buy one. I never saw a candy apple red car but it is just plain beautiful. I don't have pictures but I hope those that do will post and give us a flash of the past. Thanks for starting this thread.

That is a beautiful car Michael but since I don't have a clue please tell me who the car maker is. Thank you.

Re: POST PICTURES OF YOUR PAST/CURRENT HOT RODS!

Doesn't look like your average hotrod, but let me tell you this car had some testicular fortitude. I always called it a granny mobile on steroids. I loved this car, and it about broke my heart when I had to get rid of it.



Not my actual car, but the exact same car.......

It is indeed.... V-8 supercharged engine, fully loaded.... was just a badass ride.
My job killed it though, had over 200,000 miles on it driving sometimes over 1000 miles in a 5 day work week just to make a living. The front end ended up going out on it, the manifold cracked. could not afford to put it back together, ended up donating it to charity. I don't miss the gas mileage but I miss the car all the time.

Re: POST PICTURES OF YOUR PAST/CURRENT HOT RODS!

I was in high school when this wonderful "oil burning" beauty was available. A lot of people dropped V8's in this little car by Chevy! It was bad fast with those V8's. Only problem was the strength of the frames. :D

1973 Chevrolet Vega GT...........Mine was a lighter green metal flake green with the white strip on the hood. I later blew a head gasket and sold it! :D

Re: POST PICTURES OF YOUR PAST/CURRENT HOT RODS!

Joined the Army in 1979 and thought I would end up with one of those 1977 Pontiac Trans Am's.

But, making only about $7,000.00 per year as a soldier. I ended up with a 1975 Plymouth Duster. This car was a major "pig." Oil burner deluxe junker! :D

The picture below is the exact same color and car! 8-)

This is my current car! It was only $275,000.00 plus taxes. Has about 508 horse power. Love those Italian muscle cars! :D

It's a Ferrari 575M Maranello F1.......fast and pretty! 8-)
