Well here it is ,I'm not a real cop I just play one on tv..........HA-HA
Just got my old ladys blessing to sell my late model daily and use the cash to get my 51 Chevy truck(the blue one) rolling as a daily. So by summer time I should be rolling it with a fresh 235, open drive three speed, 54 passenger car front suspension, juiced, on some four bar flippers, looking a lot like the green truck below! I'm stoked, I hope to never own a late model vehicle ever again(except the wifey's).
Nice 56' ya have there!
Amen to that, man!!! Thanks for the compliment.
hahahaA '69 Cadillac just came into the local junk yard this week though, and I might wanna snag the 472 out of it.... I think it might be enough to move 'er. The old flatty is kool, but its pretty tired. She smokes a lot, and I think she might've picked up drinkin again.
This thing is bad!!! It reminds me of one of the cars that Robert Mitchum drove in Thunder Road...
My daily driver, not just a weekend warrior!
This was my daily driver until 2009 when I finally got Hagerty insurance on it. Injected 5.0 and 6 speed tremec transmission with all late model comforts. A/C, cruise control, power windows and great brakes. 20 mpg and fun to drive.
here is my super clean 59 survivor edsel, car is absurdly original and in sweet shape
and my back up is my 64 paw paw produce truck
the edsel is my everyday rain or shine and the truck is my haul shit around/back up if the edsel is down for maintenance
This is my Daily.....'38 Pick-up.
i was driving this as a daily until the snow came, i know i am weak for not balling in the snow but the buick would be really bad in the snow and too much power, plus they dont spare the salt in the great white north.
did you know the slant six engine was originally a tractor engine that chrysler bought the design for and they realized it could not fit for being so tall, so an ingenious design engineer at chrysler leaned the motor over and the rest is history, hence the term leaning tower of power!
My everyday driver, you name it .... it's what I have to drive.
Not the most popular brand on the lot.
I built my 65 to be able to drive daily, But I don't trust other drivers on icy roads and the salt has been excessive this year. So we are waiting for some clear roads to get it back out soon. I really miss driving it
lets see them
My '53 gets 6,000 miles a year on it. Just changed the vacuum wiper to electric.... NOW they work no matter what! I change up the wheels to suit my moods.
it's just a squareback man, drive it!
ha j/k. i have a soft spot for type 3's. one of my first cars in high school was a 68 sqaureback. i had about a dozen sqaurebacks, fastbacks and nothcbacks. fun little cars, i'm still wanting one to mess around with.
that is dope, rock on!
I drive a boring 08 Dodge truck everyday,you guys make me jealous!
Now that's an interesting choice. How did you decide to do that?
Are you going to throw the solid axle under a '54 coupe to tow behind the truck to the strip?
My daily driver for 50 years, just turned 478,000 that I put on it. It showed up on Google Earth in the parking lot at work, just like the other picture. It's pretty much in the middle of the parking lot picture.
My daily 60. The hot moms at the grocery store can't get enough (I think...). When it's a daily, you get your old car in more trouble than it oughta be in...4" to spare 'tween me and the tree.
damn dude. close call. that's a great looking car. what's the story behind the almost hitting the tree incident?
My 57 has been my daily driver rain or shine for the past 6 years
This was my daily back in the late 80's - 62 model Falcon
This is my daily now - 69 model Ford Fairmont
Dude, I believe you and I would be good friends. I've NEVER liked my own generation.
This has been my daily for hmmmmm?? 6 years?
The roof hasn't been on for 3 of them.
Yeah! been wet a few times and @#^~#&!* cold, but it's all good fun
(my only drivable car)
Some mates called into work this day (so I just had to take a pic )
Unfortunately I had to work while they went cruizin
60+ miles a day 6 days a week. Driving the ol girl is the only reason i dont mind goin to work every day.
