    This was MY hotrod in 1972 and that's me in the picture pretending to be George Harrison.
    The picture just came out that colour - no idea why but it was probably a bad film (or processing) back then.

    I was slim back then!!

    Unfortunately, I don't have pics of my '66 Pontiac GTO. This was a car I had in college - 389 cu in with a 4 barrel carb, and it looked just like this:

    although she’s not vintage muscle (nor technically muscle at all) this is my daily now. 2015 GT w all the trimmings and a 6speed manual.

    Impressive cars here. I've never owned a car with more than 100 horsepower.

    This was the Bug of Doom. It was a bit rubbish, and Mrs Daddy was embarrassed to be seen in it so it had to go. The heaters were stuck on, so driving with the top down was like having the flu. Hot and cold, at the same time.

    I had a '72 Super Beetle that the heat was stuck on too . Didn't know for a long time then I learned to crawl under the chassis to turn it on and off .

    My uncle had a super beetle once upon a time until the motor let go. Back then they had a crazy kit to stuff a GM big block in one of those things! My brother and I always said we were going to pull that old bug out of the barn one day and give it the big block treatment....sadly we never did, I woulda liked to have seen that! o_O

    1982 Corvette, the perpetual money sink. Pretty much rebuilt everything myself, except the engine and tranny. Have put 40K miles on it since 2004 when I bought it.


    2016 Charger SXT V6, daily driver and 50th b-day present to myself. (5 years of car payments, maybe not a smart gift) Not a hemi, but still enough to get in trouble and lose my CDL. Will outrun the Vette any day of the week.

    Don’t feel bad. In ‘72 I was driving a 1966 Buick Special... Station Wagon.

    About the least cool car that ever was.
