    1965 Dodge Coronet 2 door post. 318 tuned and fast. Illegal straight pipes (several tickets and 1 night in detention for lying to a cop about it)...confederate blue w/ blue flakes. The hood was painted underneath a confederate flag. American racing gold and chrome bullet hole rims with Dunlop low profile GT Qualifiers 60's all the way around it. Dropped 3 of the stock transmissions drag racing and droping down a gear to pass on the 1/4. My drunken uncle wrecked it in a field and then walked away from it and couldn't remember where it was. That was forward to 2006 and I had been looking for her. I found where she was, only 1 week after she went to the shredder. That really sucked.

    Class of '65. Had a '57 Chev BelAir 4-dr. hardtop, colonial cream with a white top, 283 Power-Pack, automatic. Shortly after graduation, I rolled it. After rolling about a thousand times (Or so it seemed), it landed upside-down on a railroad track. It was seriously totaled. I got a scratch on my elbow. Thank God I had installed seat belts in it, and actually used them.

    Pristine 60 Starliner with the 352/360hp motor. Three on the tree with overdrive.
    Loved that car but felt like I had to "fit in" so I bought a 72 MachI.
