    Chief 64

    In the 70’s my friend and I went to look at a Mustang for him. It was in Reford or Livonia, Michigan. It was a gloss black 64 or 65 fastback Mustang with 3,000 miles on it ...a 1/4 mile at a time. It had no engine or trans and was like a new car. We didn’t buy it but I have always remembered looking at that car that day and remembering that beautiful fastback.

    I.m relying on a 40 year old memory of a feature article in HRM of a late 31 R/P that had a 32 grill shell and fenders
    that the article stated came that way from the factory. Something to do with model changeover from the A to the B.
    Can anyone confirm that ?? I still dream about that car.

    My daughter-in-law gave me my dream car two years ago. She inherited the family farm and it was just sitting in the pole building. One day it will be given back to one of these guys (grandkids), but for now we all get to have fun. 1965 Mustang G.T. four barrel, four speed, pony interior, 140 mph speedo, quick ratio steering, disc brakes, posi….all the bells and whistles. 225 h.p. could really get you in trouble if you drove a little crazy. With that said I still want a Nomad (any year). Gary IMG_3659.jpeg

    How about you guys, is there a car you think, someday it might happen. HRP[/QUOTE]

    Do either one of these count? upload_2019-10-17_15-53-48.jpeg [​IMG]
    even though I know it would never happen.

    No really, I have my top upload_2019-10-17_15-53-48.jpeg bucket list out in the Garage. Next in line though would be the 3rd fastest production car of its era, [​IMG] the 70 Buick GSX stage 1 and descending in order would be the 2002/2007 Dodge Viper (ZB I)[​IMG]
  11. First off a 1956 Chevy Nomad 60/70 style build, then any 56 to 62 Corvette. When I was in high school I had a chance to buy a 56 Nomad but father said no I would just get some girl in trouble, so I never got a chance to buy one again. Years later my dad told me that we should have bought the Nomad, at that time I could have bought it for 300.00 dollars. It was black with white tuck and roll interior, 265, 3 speed Hurst shifter on the floor, chrome reverse wheels. Back then it was the perfect car. Adding to being more bummed out the the next year my best friend bought a heavy metallic blue, 283,4 speed,with aluminum slots,so I did get to drive his quite often but he would never sell me that one either. So I still don't own and at today's prices probably won't. I have made up for it by finding two other loves, being a 1938 Willys 2 Dr sedan and a 1961 Chevy 2 Dr sedan Biscayne both built in the 60/70s gasser style. Willys with a axle, Biscayne with ball joint spacers and big springs. Well that's the end of this, but I still love 1956 Chevy Nomads.

    I am building my all time favorite (shoebox coupe) but the one car I want that would make me happy for a long time would have to be a shoebox convertible.

  16. I've been really very lucky over the years and have not wanted much that I haven't had. I owned a 40 Ford when I was a kid, I had a 52 Ford and a 55 Ford. I drove a 59 Ford for awhile and a whole host of other cars people today would love to have. The only two cars that I would really like to own that I haven't yet are a 55 Chevy (I'm really a Ford guy so that probably won't happen. :( ), and a '50 Ford Tudor. I don't want to jinx anything but I'm dealing on one at this very moment. Wish me good luck please, I've been chasing "just the right car" for over two years.

    As I said I've been pretty lucky over the years. I have 3 '63.5 Galaxies, the one in my avatar I've owned for 47 years, and a couple of other (Fords of course) cars that are in various stages of project status or waiting for some attention.

    The one I truly seem to need though is the 50 Ford Tudor. I've wanted one since I was about 6 years old. They just look so cool sitting low and sound so good with the flathead rumble.

    Say huh. Some people dream closer to reality than "All I need to do is hit the lottery for a couple of hundred million". And some dream knowing all it will ever be is a dream.

    In reality if I could get me a 40 Ford coupe or 2 door sedan I would not want any other but there are so many others that would be nice too.

    The relative of a neighbor would visit with such a car when I was about 9. I was impressed by the top.
    My memory may be wrong but I think it had dual quads.
