Who's ride would you rather have?
Milner no question!
Falfa, I just enjoy taking my fat ass down the 1320 in a fat car. The deuce was for the "slow trad guys"..
Milner! I ain't no dork to pick falfa! haha
Milner's 32. Drive it like I stole it, then sell it and buy a few Falfa's 55s.
Falfa... just cuz I hate that bright ass canary yellow... lol
If it was just a money thing...the 32. If it was about which one would I like to own NOW?....32. But either one would be cool to have.
Here's a thought..What engine do you think Flafa would have been running? 409?
(the 55 really has an L-88 427.)
I'd take greased lightning, then bust out into spontaneous homoerotic song and dance...
I voted 32, but only I could change it a little........only a little!
well, the 58 probably worked best, almost got Toad layed
Story based in 62, so a 327 and 409 were way too spendy.
I'd say first guess is a 301 chev or 2nd is 348.
now the youngsters will say there was NO such motor as a 301
66 327 in 1962
427 would have pulled him .
Love that '55.
My most favorite car of all time is a '32 Ford 5w but Milner's was not nearly as cool as Falfa's '55. My brother might say that the '58 was even cooler. One thing is for sure, that Merc was a turd and I would rather drive Toad's scooter....maybe not.
tough one for me, but I think the '32 would be the better choice. The '55 is definitely close though.
Toad didn't get laid?...The car got stolen and he got roughed up...I thought he at least got.........son of a bitch!
I'd rather have the Merc so I could redo the chop and lower it a bit.
Milner's and I have a stock shell and radiator for it, and a gallon of black paint.
yellow coupe anyday.......
slow trad guys? milner's crate was the fastest in the valley!
Like has been said, if it was strictly about the $$$ I'd have to take the deuce. BUT, strictly based on my gut- I'd go with the '55. I loved that car since WAY before I ever knew what a 'deuce' was or why it was cool. I can still hear the roar of that '55 when he hammered on it- that was just plain MEAN!!!
built my A in 65-67 so already had it&still do
Since I've read all the post now, I'll try again. If you could afford to hotrod a 7 year old car in 1962, you could probably afford one of those new fangled crate engines. Maybe a "Corvette" 327, but I'd bet Falfa was more of a 409/409 kinda guy. He could use one of those new Hurst engine mount kits to put it in.
And it always looked to me like the 55 was a better built car than the 32, but how can you pass up a deuce?
Quiz--How can you tell at a glance that this engine is a 62 (It really is) and not a 63-65?
I think "Falfa's" ride in his next big movie was a little faster, anyone for the Millenium Falcon?
