    Drove my 1949 Fleetline my senior year(2000). It was bone stock except for some speed parts on the 216 and the really old flame job. I look it apart in 2001 for some upgrades and it is still sitting in the barn, waiting patiently to see the road again.

    55 Ford Gasser

    In 1967-68 I drove a 1963 Valiant Signet 200 and a 1962 Austin Mini 850. Sold the Mini in 68 to buy engagement ring for girlfriend(wife). Drove the Valiant away from our wedding. 45 years later and I still have the wife. We have a Valiant like our first one and I've owned many Minis since selling the first one. Still own a 67 race Mini. And I don't regret selling the first one!

    A 1966 Chevelle convertible, 454 LS6 crate engine, M-20 4speed, 12-bolt posi. The best time I ever managed was a 12.01 up at 75&80 Drag-A-Way in Ijamsville, Maryland.

    Spent many a summer evening just cruising the back roads with my girlfriend, top down, radio blasting. The summers of '85 and '86 were very good to me.
