    I've had serveral, people say they were nice... Then you move on to a new project and they tell ya how kool the 1 was you sold.... Why didn't anybody say that to me earlier. Onwards to hopefully something better. As we hopefully learn from our mistakes. image(4).jpeg 0131130956.jpeg 0422121809a.jpeg

  2. I do miss these three. :( But you can't keep them all. For the most part, I've been able to hang on to the important ones also.:) But my 38 Chevy coupe, 37 Dodge coupe, and my wife's 69, {sorry o.t.} Camaro, had to go. The camaro was a black on black factory SS 396ci. 375bhp with a 4 speed. I got it for my wife to drive to high school.:eek: lol Our budget back then, { Life } wouldn't let us to keep them. It's always hard to see them leave. Ron.... 402.jpg 287.jpg 400.jpg

    Every car I had in High School. Mostly the 38 Chevy 4 door I got for $15 and flipped for $25. And my 33 Packard daily driver during my junior year. I guess the 34 Ford 3 window would have been a good one to keep also. And I did keep my 31 American Austin until 65. When I bought this 32 for $75. Kept it until 98. Set a couple Bonneville records with it. Sold it for $4000 without the engine. Might be worth more now.

    also my 1st 40 Ford Standard 2dr sedan bought in 1971 for $200, 283, 3-speed on floor, rebuilt the engine, changed to a 4-spd, went to a 3" dropped tube axle, never got it road worthy, a friend had a very nice 40 tudor with a 409 & hand painted flames that I drooled over, his son found the car & bought it back about 10 yrs ago. another friend had a blk 34 Plym sedan w/ red/wht tuck & roll so when I bought another 40 in 2008, I decided to build a mix of these three of them. mine was the yellow/primer one, friends was the blk deluxe, my current car is the flamed standard, 305sbc, 700r4, vintage air, pwr windows.

    My T Bucket was a fun car, don't know if I would fit in it any more but it was definitely a mid 80's build. filename-1-11.jpg
