Wanna know what's a real hoot?

Go back to the beginning of this thread and re-read it from top to bottom(again)

This is at least as good as any Peter Egan sentamental editorial in Road & Track or Cycle Worldwith just as broad a range of emotions hiding in there

Peter Egan is the man! Even after all of the horror stories, I still almost want an old Lotus or Jag.

Yeah, those really make me want to break out the grease and wrenches. Then I think about what a bitch it was just to replace the turn signal module on the Volvo....

I loved all my old rods, and still enjoy tweaking to some extent. With businesses to manage, a full time job and family, time is now a luxury that I don’t have much of. Building race engines and hot street/strip engines is a passion of mine, but again, time……just can’t do it anymore. So for the last several years I’ve been buying new and leaving the restorations/modifying on the back burner. I have a straight rust free 62 vette without drive train that one of these days, I plan to built a stainless frame and retrofit a C-4 suspension and aluminum 542 CID big block into…..but that won’t happen for a few years.

In order of when owned.

71 Chevy short bed pickup ( mid 12 second with a blown 327 )
65 ½ mustang - fastback ( happy 289, restored to primer with new drive train and interior, then had to sell it )
65 GTO ( roll cage, 428 CID – low altitude flyer )
69 nova ( low 9 second, tube chassis, caged, 800 hp 468 CID )
77 Z28 ( Built Lt-1 with a 300 hp shot of nitrous and an M-22, ran low 10’s )
78 vette - silver anniversary special ( left this one alone for re-sale…boring )
81 Trans am ( retro fitted a LS-7 based big block and Doug Nash 5 speed ) not quick but fast as hell )
70 Chevy Blazer ( 4” lift and 34’s, built 400 small block )
78 Chevy Silverado short bed 4X4 ( 4” lift, 33’s, built 350 )
85 Saab 900 Turbo ( boring mistake….)
85 Ford Escort GT ( 200 hp nitrous….scary quick )
88 Ford F-150 lariat short bed 4X4 – first new vehicle, left it alone.
90 camaro berlinetta ( for wife # 1, POS )
91 Acura – forgot what model, but expensive little bugger ( for wife # 2 )
93 Ford Eddie Bauer Bronco ( for wife # 2 )
85 Chevy SB Silverado ( frame off restoration, 6” lift, 35’s, nicely built 383 ) – loved that truck
96 GMC Yukon SLT ( wife # 2 )
99 GMC Sierra SLT ( wife # 2 )
02 Chevy Avalanche LT ( 6” lift, 35’s, headers into duals, re-programmed PCM )
03 Dodge Ram Q-cab 4X4 Laramie with the 5.7 hemi ( lifted front end, 34’s, headers with duals, programmer tweaks )
03 Volvo S60R AWD ( loved those seats, X-wife # 2 )
05 GMC Sierra Denali pickup ( soon to be supercharged with headers, duals and custom PCM )

I’m saving my pennies for either an 07 Z06 vette or 07 Shelby GT 500 mustang.

I was never a fan of spending a lot of money on something that, for as quickly as they wear out, costs so much and depreciates so fast. Don't get me wrong, I would love to drive a new Dodge Charger, or Accura TL or something, but until someone gives me the $40,000 (average between those two) to buy one, I will still with what I have (for now) and spend my cash on other stuff that are more long lived and will provide more enjoyment in my life, like my home theater, or finishing my basement, or the home addition planned for 2 years from now...

Turned 16 in 1988.

1984 Oldsmobile Firenza (used)
1992 Pontiac Sunbird (new)
1994 Oldmobile Achieva (used)
1996 Pontiac Grand Am GT (almost new)
1999 Dodge Grand Caravan (almost new, very used now)
1999 Ford Contour Sport (used, oddly fun to drive)

Ah.....41 was a good year for cars. Our family car was a dandy 41 Olds. Was still running well in '50 when we got a new one. My brother was driving his chopped and channeled 39 Pontiac at the time. It was a fun ride

I just remembered the racoon tail on the antenna and the speed knob on the steering wheel. Made our car seem kinda ordinary. Also had some kind odd blue coloration on the chrome and a fancy sun visor.

Oh Oh, we're bringin' back memories now

I think I saw the ultimate urban Shooting Brake tonight :

Jeep Liberty, owned by "Tom the Pigeon Man", with the text "Are you tired of pigeons nesting on your balcony ?" emblazoned across the rear window
