Loudbang, you post some great stuff, thanks so much for going to the trouble for us.
Damn you were a lucky kid.
Simple and black, can't beat it.
Yes, I was a lucky kid. My Dad used to bring home all sorts of oddball Chrysler products. My neighbor was a Chrysler engineer and was one of the testers for the Chrysler Turbine. I never did get a ride in it, but I used to get up every morning just to hear it start up when the guy went to work. Sounded like a somewhat muffled Learjet. One of my other neighbors was a hot rodder. The kid across the street ALWAYS had high performance cars. Just a few blocks away was Woodward Avenue. The Ramchargers were a few blocks from my house. Yes....I was a lucky kid.
Folks still race on Woodward every day......
Track appears to be banked,. Aren't horse tracks flat?
The sad thing is that the design of the parking ramp had more thought put into then most new buildings do now.

Our family trekked from oregon to Kansas in 1964 in an almost identical Pontiac> It was blast, a pretty good car until the right side A arm broke off in 1967! GM replaced it. I'd love to have one. Years ago I had to visit an elderly couple down in Orange County. They had an 100 % identical Catalina down to the Fingerhut waffle plastic seat covers! I mean IDENTICAL.
