My dad came home one day with a 1970 Dodge Dart Swinger.  Plum crazy purple,  white vinyl top, 318 ci.  He was a mechanic so he had it screaming fast.

It looked like this except mine had the white top and no scoops on the hood.  Wish I still had it.

I'm sure some of you had awesome cars back in the day.

Oh how I wish I still had my first car. How foolish I was to trade it in!!! I still don't know why I did that!!! Facepalm

That should be in the museum of art.

Nobody made cars like Americans used to. No one.

Sadly those days left us in the mid to late 70s.

My brother had one of those at one point. It was a dream.









TITOR RIGHT AGAIN! Woot



There are certain topics i refuse to ever discuss again with anyone because people have been brainwashed from birth and are unable to critically think thus they end up lashing out when their programming has been compromised.
Momma always told me....Son...never get between a msm zombified idiot and the programming they hold dear to their heart.
Momma was right.

Without doubt, the one car I wish that I still owned would have to be the 427 Corvette Coupe I bought new, right out of university in 1967. I custom ordered it for high-speed road driving and modified it extensively to provide that "in spades." I installed an 850 CFM Holley dual float-bowl 4-barrel carburetor with vacuum-operated secondaries and a set of equal length steel tubing headers mated to GM's "off road" side-pipe exhaust system. Dual auxiliary fuel pumps alleviated fuel starvation problems and a heat spacer prevented an annoying fuel boiling problem. The racing clutch and Hurst shifter helped the wide-ratio Muncie 4-speed transmission work better. The 3.08:1 differential allowed 75 MPH at engine speeds from 1800 RPM in 4th gear for "normal driving" up to the 6500 RPM redline in 1st gear. Koni racing shocks were installed, and the suspension was lowered 0.5 inch, front and rear, and re-aligned to racing specs. Wide racing tires on aluminum wheels completed the performance modifications. The car handled beautifully at speeds from 65 MPH up to 165 MPH. Its aerodynamics were not right for sustained driving at or near its RPM-limited top speed of well over 200 MPH. I had to change the spark plugs and tires every 3 months, but what a road car it was. It is now a fully restored show car owned by an enthusiast in Houston. It still sports my NASA parking sticker inside the windshield behind the rear-view mirror.

The car actually got about 12-15 MPG running a higher-octane blend of leaded premium and lead-free Amoco premium gasolines. I commuted weekly to work 150 miles each way and made several overnight highway trips of up to 1300 miles. Later, my daily commute to work at NASA was only 15 miles, but the first 13 miles from home took only 5 to 8 minutes, depending.

Ah, that Toyota Landcruiser!  They have held their value too!

I've been looking for one for my husband. Hard to find.



The car I wish I would not have parted with was my Jaguar Xj6 Vandenplas.  I loved that car!

Luckily, the older ones aren't expensive anymore.

I had to look that up. That's a nice looking car!

It was Kelly Green...she was beautiful, but my dad was getting older and he couldn't get in and out of it very easy, it was pretty low to the ground and he was a tall man, so I sold it and got an SUV. He loved riding in it though:)

Dear Winter,
I am breaking up with you.
I think it is time I start seeing other seasons.

p.s. Summer is hotter than you

All of those cars are distinctive. I see a parking lot full of cars now and most of them look identical.

That car oozes class

This picture was taken from Google search but mine was black as well and I was the only kid around that had one . It had a V8 engine with a 2 speed automatic transmission and a AM radio; when my dad gave it to me it only had about 50.000 miles on it . We had a big ford wagon that was used for a family car and dad had a two pickups on the farm I wish I had those now to .

Unless you have an SUV you can't even get laid in a car now.
