Hot Rods I drove the 5 window to work today

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by HOTRODPRIMER, Mar 22, 2018.

  1. After trading the 4 door for the coupe and spending the last 7 weeks working on getting the seat moved and doing a little interior changing to get my big old Neanderthal body squeezed in and rebuilding the carburetor,changing the plugs & wires and just trying to make it as dependable as possible I was able to drive the coupe to work today,man did I get some thumbs up.:)

    I am felling a little more confident with the car and getting use to the non synchronized transmission and I am like a kid at Christmas,I didn't know that driving a banger could be so much fun,I actually got the car up to 55 MPH and never pushed it any harder but I suspect it had a little more power.

    Today is a RED LETTER DAY! HRP

    o_O :D A 5 window is way cooler than any 4 door and Danny has had his share of 4 doors.

    So that's not even worth 3.5 cents :p:D

    Only 2 things kept me from driving my 5 Window to work today.... 1.. I don't work, 2... I don't own a 5 Window. Other then that, I would have driven it to work

    Is that the 32 four door you got from a fellow hamber and you traded it for a coupe?
