    '73 is when the Oil Embargo hit. Things went downhill after that. Of course, now, it seems not to be an issue.

    My dad had a pewter 72 Cougar convertible with a 351C. You could land fighter jets on the hood, lol. It would do 35mph at IDLE.

    For some reason I remember the cool turn signals where the lights would blink in a sequence:

    For me, the greatest muscle cars were '50s Studebaker Hawk and early '60s Avantis. Supercharged, years ahead of their time, and, yes, quirky. Of course, I'm from South Bend, and my family worked there. It's the law that I have to like Studes.

    Even earlier, 1930s Auburns, Cords, and Duesenbergs, were the epitome of fast and cool. Before that, the Stutz Bearcat and Mercer Raceabout led the way.

    The first race was held when the second car was built.

    The design goes back to 1962 and didn't change too much over the years. Look at all of the speed records it set at Bonneville---even breaking some of it's own records 50 years later.

    I knew I had crossed the line when the barber asked if I wanted him to trim my eyebrows and ears.

    I saw him last weekend. Since he started playing a PRS his stuff sounds the same. When playing the older songs, he sounded vibrant and alive and interesting. The newer stuff, not so much.
