    there was one of these for sale on flood street when you were living up here. when i told you about it, you pointed out my affinity for "weird cars"... so i bought the model you mistook it for at the stoplight.

    and i know it is pink and kind of gay, but i always liked the next-gen of that Richard Zocchi starfire.

    Damn.
     
  6. Might be a little late, but 65'-68' Chrysler 2dr hardtops... The 63-64 Chryslers looked like giant Valiants to me.

    Working on trying to get a 64 Electra 2dr HT bought and customized. Same deal, wheels, stance, grille, paint, done. Bodystyle similar to those Olds, cept the quarters are about 30 feet longer....

    I love the "off brand" GM cars. They just seem better built than their Chevy brethren. I had a low mileage stock 62 LeSabre that I treated to just a lowering job and some supremes and it was a great cruiser. I bought it in Rochester NY and drove it back home to St. Louis, MO with no problems.

    Ahhh, the memories. My 1st car was a '63 Olds Super 88 4 door hardtop...


    Put about 1,000 miles on it between age 14-16 in our orchards. Really a great car, and an awesome people-mover to the keg parties.

    Came to a most unfortunate end when a low-rider S-10 (no insurance) turned left in front of me...let me tell you physics work.

    All sentiment aside, truly a great car. The '61 through '64 B.O.P.'s will always hold a place in my heart...

    Dug through some old pictures and found a couple old shots of my Olds...about 15 years and 65 pounds ago...

    Then there's the Olds Jetfire, which it I remember right, had the aluminum V8, and the "Rocket Fuel" alcohol bottle underhood.
    Friend of mine had a 1964. Can't even find a google image of a Jetfire out there. Anyone have one?

    The wife and I are building a full custom 64.

    I have discovered that alot of the parts on these monsters are a complete bitch to find. Most are unique to Starfire.

    whatta mess. should be bitchin when it is finished, though!

    JEEEZUS! There are some fine lookin' Olds here. I think I'm gonna have to get a full-size someday...love em, all. But I just may have fallen in love with the tan Electra. I've always liked variety...Olds, Buick, and Pontiac have always enticed me more than Chevy.

    My aunt who was a year older than me got a brand new maxed out gold/gold '64 Starfire when she graduated from high school, complete with the big red velvet ribbon. When I graduated the following year, her parents (my maternal grandparents) offered me their 62 more-door Lebaron because they thought the MGA I was driving at the time looked dangerous... As though 400 horsepower pushing a 6000 pound riverboat rolling on drum brakes was all that safe....
     
  24. That '60 Pontiac is one cool ride ... Like it better than the rest .. Nothin' like those old long Poncho's ...

    Here is a nice mild custom 88 vert that was in the swap meet in Louisville this weekend. Didn't see a price, but I sure would have liked to drive it back to Texas.

    Oh WEIRD!

    ...and Ryan, it's good to see you're leaning more toward the 60's all the time. How's that wagon of yours doing?
     
  27. Donnie's 63 is beautiful.

    I love early 60's oldsmobiles.

    I've got a 61 dynamic 88 hardtop now, waiting in the wings for the bellflower treatment.

    Here's a shot of my 62 olds (4 door) that I sold a few years back...

    Even more...

    Oh, and to answer the question....my favorite is the '63 Olds fullsize. 88 or 98, whichever...as long as it's a 2-door hardtop I'm all over it. The '64 Cutlass isn't bad either though...
