I had a 71 Ford Ranchero with a factory 429 SCJ, Holly 4 bbl and four speed. Hide-away headlamps and no glare hood. It was very rare, wish I knew what it would be worth today!! It would pass anything but a gas station!!. Traded it for a 1972 Nova SS that I flat blew away and the guy had to trade me!! Saved a lot of gas and it would still go way faster than I needed to go ;D

 
Not mine but this is what mine looked like.
The SS was blue and we painted a "Starsky & Hutch" white stripe on it when we were attending the local vocational school.
I think I have told about my "Johnny Cash" truck before. I'll try to find a pic. 1970 Mercury 390, bored to 396. 1979 F150 cab, 1974 box, 1974 4x4 frame, 1987 Chrysler New Yorker power bucket seats, Holly Pro-jection fuel injection, custom built fuel tank, 1977 1/2 front axle ( heavier than the '74). Red with two tone blue ZZ top stripes.
Great thread!
If it is true that we learn from our mistakes, I must be Brilliant!

I had forgotten about the '60 model Chevy El Camino, and the '64 Ford Galaxy 500 two door HT.  Wonder where they are today?

I think it was a 296……would that be right? It was not a 390.

My very first car was a '51 Ford Custom with a flat head V8 and I know where it is.  I was rear-ended and it was totaled.  :-\

My dad still has Grandma and grandpa's '68 Galaxie 500, 429 in that one, hasn't ran in years but it was the only car he ever got a speeding ticket in  :D.  They clocked him from a plane to boot, only ticket I think he's ever gotten.

Mine spent more time beside the road than on it. Between SU carburetors and those DanG Lucas electrical systems... >:( :D

Those old cars are cool, but it's hard to go past the reliability of a Toyota these days. Sure they where easy enough to fix, but you generally got good practice at doing it.  :D

When a kid a 4 door muscle car was not cool. Five or so years ago we bought a 69 buick skylark with 4 doors. The kids loved it and the 4 doors where really nice. It was a really cool car in Marcia and my eyes. Funny how time changes things. Thanks for posting all the cool rides!

My BIL and I bought a '68 2 door and built a stock car out of it, didn't get the big block version but that little 350 would scream (certain adjustments were made  ;)).  Unfortunately we didn't have the brains to set up the suspension right and learned very quick that GM parts are GM parts and Buick parts are Buick parts  :-\.

Among the many different oldies I've had over the years I've had a couple Buick Ragtops. One thing that I always liked was the Power Slide transmissions.
Wild Bill has this 51 International Metro Van I gave him for a birthday years ago. It runs and drives, needs a master cyl so he uses it as a solar Kiln for all the wood Danny and Jake gave him.

Matter of fact, I listed that number in a post last week.  Gotta keep up with Junior Samples.   smiley_thumbsup

If the world were lit by Lucas, it would be dark.  :D

No classic cars for me. First vehicle was a 1985 Dodge W350 short bed four door four wheel drive. I was a few years ahead of the curve for four door trucks with that one around here. Now, if we're talking hot rods, I have a '99 Dodge Cummins making 500 HP and 1,200 ft/lbs. ;D Passes everything, including the gas stations. I've made many expensive sports cars look stupid with that truck.

Don't know if you'd call it a classic or not, but, I pulled a 1987 Mazda RX7, out of a field and got it running and on the road real cheap. That was a fun, fun car to drive. Rotary engine, 5 speed. Still kick myself for getting rid of it  :-\

Now, I own a 1976 Ford F250 4x4, 390 V8, 4 speed manual. 1978 nose on it. Divorced transfer case. It's a bit rough around the edges, needs some work, but it's a cool, tough old truck and I love it.



 

The dog loves the truck as much as I do. Seriously, I can't get into the truck without him jumping in. Loves to ride in it. It's "his truck"
