    This is a tough question if you could only haul back what you could bring back in the back of a pick up . Like a few flatheads some hemis or new desoto grilles
     
  2. 32,33,34 window garnish. A whole damn truck load.
     
  3. A bed full of Turbonique Drag Axles

    I wouldn't get greedy, I would just love to have back the Rochester fuel injection off a 57 Chevy that I, foolishly, sold for $100 in 1965 :(:(:(:(:(

    Well, If I could get it loaded (on a pick up) I would bring back "at least the body",minus frame etc of my first 55 (hood fenders etc inside or on top) from 1983 when I was 13.

    I would finish it this time only it wouldnt be yellow with cragars etc etc. like I had planned back then, It would be "closer" to what it already was then, only"Nice"Solid white paint with grey torque thrust or maybe even a full set of the old (cheesy on a 55) steel z28 torq thrust lookin wheels I put on the front back then (just because)........or not.

    ....................Wait a minute:rolleyes:............now, What was the question again?:D

  16. Somehow I'd load up that 62 Impala 2dr ht I had in college! White with red interior and 3 on the tree. Traded it for a $#%i*! VW beetle. Well, it was the late 60's. For some people those POS things were the rage!
    What was I thinking??

    If it is ok to take them apart and pack things carefully I'll be back with a Type 37 Bugatti and a mid 1920's MILLER Indy car. Bob

  19. A tall T coupe body, A couple 27 T roadster bodies, and all of the early track T sheet metal I could pile on using low budget's method of loading. Oh, and a Fargo 4 port banger engine so I could relive my HS years.

    If I can add side stake racks also to the 8 ft box...... I'd go back to a well stocked salvage yard and get about a dozen gm 3 speed overdrive's " R10 style. Box full of 12V Relays to go with them. Couple sets of Hudson twin "H" one barrel carbs. 54 corvette intake w/side draft carbs. Extra set of 53 150 rubber door rock guards. A low mile pull out Corvette "L88" 427 /M22 combo or it they were running low on them a Chevelle "LS6" w M22 would do. 1957 Ford car 9 inch rear. Hack saw off set of Chambered exhaust pipes from 69 Camaro. Lastly if I can use a military grade tie down a couple of tri five 2dr bench seats. That'd B ok.
     
  29. I believes a batch of Micky Thompson 427 Ford hemi engines would do the trick...
