Kinda OT. What other kinds of cars do you guys like besides Hot Rods?

    I dunno, but if the green one was a Plymouth, it would have been my dads.

    I like almost anything American made before 1965. Everything else is just transportation. However I'm getting tired of tri-fives and vettes. All muscle cars are boring to me. They are built utilizing little or no imagination. There are a few classic foreigns I like but they are old classics.

    My favourites are the 20's and 30's, like my 33 Ford and 37 Ford, but I also love 67 Camaro's. This picture is of my 67 that I have owned for 41 years. I like jacked up 4x4's as well, although my 2008 King Ranch is pretty mild compared to what I really like. Bill

  6. Some interesting comments here - like a few that mentioned GLH Turbos (I used to rally one and can tell you they fly fairly nicely when you go off "Engineers Corner" at Pikes Peak.
    Early Broncos, 60-70 Pony Cars especially done in the Trans Am Race series style (but not Trans Am's), my old Sunbeam Tiger, Healy 3000's (especially with a Chevy in them) OG Mini Trucks (Datsun's LUV's, Courier's) Monster Miata's (you know, the ones with the 5.0 Ford's in them) Many British Sports Cars, Nazi Wind Suckers (Both VW and Porch), Rally Cars (Google Group B Rally if you want a new definition of INSANE) Off Road Race Trucks (especially the ones I used to race) Most Mustang's (except the horrible flat roof 73's) PINTO'S ! (make mine Pro Stock style please) Euro Escort's (especially a Mk I with big "wings") and a baby's arm holding an apple.
    (any Tubes fans will get the reference)

    Oh yeah and almost ALL Murder Sickles
  7. '57 Fords, any non-chevy muscle cars, AC Cobras, GT40's. Basically anything that doesn't have a bow-tie on the hood...

    i build lots of them donks they do pay well and prosatots dig them but i whould never drive one around!
  10. My Probe GT (V6 Turbo) road course prepped car - pretty much everything I could possibly do to a car, I bought it new and stripped it down after about 15 miles on the clock to start the creation. Not a whole lot stock left, but almost 13 years later it's still a blast - and it keeps up with traffic with some of the most ridiculous acceleration I have seen on a street vehicle.



    and my Offroad joy my '97 TJ.


    Both made in America - however there is some foreign content there...

    blue ones, sometimes green and red occasionally tan or white and one time there was that orange one with the purple stripe and the black flames with the yellow and pink stripes. Silver is ok too.

    I like....

    88-98 Chevy Trucks
    Impalas '59, '74-'76 "Glasshouse" and 'vert, '77-'85 2dr, '94-'96
    Tasteful imports, Supra, 300zx, 280z, 88-91 Rx7 Convertible
    Fox body 'stangs
    '82-'93 S10 Blazer's
    Datsun Trucks
    Tasteful Street Rods
    and quite a few others...

    Oh and Antique Lawn and Garden Tractors!
  13. I like lots of different cars and trucks. I am not locked into one brand, year grouping, or type. My family owns a '70s Chevy truck, a '90s Dodge Cummins Diesel, a '60s Dodge van, a '56 Ply wagon, a '66 Dodge Coronet 500 hardtop, a '78 New Yorker, a restored '37 Terraplane, and a PT ragtop. I've owned over 700 cars and trucks in nearly 40 years, of all types, makes, and countries of origin, so I never have limited myself to one specific kind of car or truck. The majority (about 65% or so) have been Mopars.

    Why be stuck in one thing? Life's too short not to drive everything!

    What I'd like to own is a nice little Opel GT! My brother had three of them, and all were fun little cars! Another would be a jet black '39 Ford coupe with a 289, auto, rolled black Naugahyde interior, Torque Thrusts, and an underdash 8-track!

    Motorcycles? A Triumph Bonneville, Norton 850 Twin Commando, '46 Indian, or a '60s Vespa scooter would be cool, too!

    Boats? Not a boat guy, I hate the water. BUT, if a pre-war Chris Craft wooden work of art were to float my way...!

    Amazing. Over on the J.J. they delete posts from people honestly trying to get help with their bike just because it's a Jap bike. They aren't showing it off, they just need technical help.

    Over here, we have posts with Ford Probes and Monster trucks.

    Something aint right.
