Who had the baddest ride in their senior year of high school
I think we just did this a few weeks ago.
well i went to a private school where every one was rich and i was the only one eating government cheese. with that being said not me. i did have a 68 chevelle/ malibu that i bought for 300, but a good friend of mine had a 54 corvette, and a 62 impala witha 409 so imho that was the best.and this was in 2002!!
Deja vu. All over again!
58 Chevy Yoman wagon. Parents hated seeing me pull up for a date with their daughter.
CC- you're fast!
here ya go...14 pages worth from a few weeks ago...
55 Chevy rag top...my rival had a 56 Chevy 2 dr....
Never did race the guy but lots of smack talk....
64 1/2 mustang early 289 4 speed burgundy with black interior . My dad bought it new from Hilbish ford in kannapolis nc . total lossed on 10-6-78. The only time i ever saw my dad drunk was when i wrecked that car,
67 Mustang 289 4v. Light Ivy Gold with a black interior. Bought it at the senior auction to raise money for the prom. I've learned better about what is a cool car since then . . .
This is getting old,,HRP
1922 Model T with a Roof Head, quick change banjo rear end with willys steel spoke wheels. Started as a coupe till we made it a roadster
Yah, kill this thing...
I turned 17 in 1987, so I got the baddest modern 'hot rod' that was available that year - the Buick Regal Grand National. Wow - what a fast car !
64 Rambler American wagon. Flat head six, three on the tree.
63 1/2 Galaxy, 4 speed, low riser, single 4 barrel, Kelsey 5 spokes and factory traction bars. That engine, it was hmmmm, oh yeah, 4 2 7
1960 Ford 2 door 6 cylinder stick. Not even a radio. paid 45 bucks for it in '67, drove it 2 years. A dollar's worth of gas and 2 or 3 buddies (male/female) & we were good for the night.
1960 cadillac, flat black with flames all down the side.
I bought a brand new 67 Nova SS with my own money. not bad for a senior in high school
Some of us don't hang on here all of the time so we don't realize that the subject has been touched on. I guess we need to do a search of other threads before we post to keep you guys happy!!!! Stop complaining!!!!Just roll with it and pay it no mind!!!!!
Mine was a 66 Buick Skylark GS Convertible. Damn I wish I still had that!!!!
Senior Year 1987
Mine was a 73 Camaro, 350 with all the goodies and a 4Spd, painted metallic brown with white deck stripes and a white vinyl top and a set of ET turbines sportin RWL Goodyear Eagles.
1966 Mustang, 289 - silver with a black vinyl top, I think it was a T-Bird color.
I had a 55 Belair 2-door post with a 375 horse 396, fenderwell headers, T-10 4-speed, etc. but I still feel bad about the 34 Ford 3-window that sat in the garage unfinished because of extreme lack of funds. If I only knew then what I know now!
'67 390 Fairlane and no one bought it for me. It was only six years old at the time. Just like new....
aw hell.........I'll play. A 55 Chevy 210 with a screamin 283.
NOT this one but:
a '53 Chieftain Convert, power top, white over green, 3 spd auto, ' electric eye' auto headlight dimmer, glasspack, straight 8, 6 volt... I miss that cat- great for the drive-in dates
65' Mercury Comet Cyclone. 289" 4bbl 4 spd car. I'd looove to have it back.
Class of 1981. I drove my 55 Chevy, 2dr sedan 210. original black paint with black primer spots. Black steel wheels, with Farm King Widetrack Super 60's on the back(G60x15) and Sears G78x14's on the front. The Farm King tires wore like iron and made really smokey burnouts. 283 bored to 292, muncie 4 speed and 4:56 rear gears. It was generally considered a piece of crap, by my classmates cause it wasn't a Z-28 or a Trans-Am. Still have it today. Hasn't changed much, except shiney paint and nice upholstry. Has the same 283, but it's bored to 301 now. Still does nice smokey burnouts.
didnt have any of my hamb related cars running at the time but I drove a 1980 porsche 924 turbo, a 1984 maserati biturbo, and a 67 pontiac executive. Had about 3 thousand invested in all three. Still have the exec and the biturbo. sold the porsche about a month ago to fund my fleetline project.
I had a 1932 Ford five window coupe. Chopped and channeled with 401 Buick nailhead. Wish I still owned it!
