Classic muscle cars...Got any? Getting to enjoy them any?
I'm old so the ones I've had were pre-Barrett Jackson or I've simply held on to. I had an advantage as well through employment you could say. I did route sales throughout the 80's and 90's before cable was widespread and was finding a lot of cars on rural routes. Now they've got satellite everywhere so everyone thinks the rusted out hulk with nothing usable on it is a 30k car. Ive got a'68 F-350, A 1979 Trans Am and a 1967 Firebird convertible left from the dozens I've run through here.I wont complain about having a job ever but the last few years I dont seem to have the time to enjoy them like I once did. I even bought a motorcycle, an Indian Scout bobber. I hardly get to ride it. I'm 58 so maybe it's a function of that.Anyway, what you got?

My brother just got a 66 Shelby cobra replica with a 427 for his anniversary.

I got to drive it this weekend. I know. CSB

My FIL has a 1950 Chevrolet pickup that sits in the shop. Sometimes he moves it outside

Bought a 69 chevelle SS a year ago after years of searching for the right one. It wasn’t cheap, wish I had bought one 5-10 years ago and would have paid almost half of what I did

I have a '77 300D with a TD engine installed (just so it will get past 70 lol), a '66 C10, and an '03 Baja.

Growing up, my dad had a '72 Jimmy and a '66 GTO. I'd love to have those again. I don't have enough storage for more vehicles, though.

re: Classic muscle cars...Got any? Getting to enjoy them any?
I had a Chevelle 1970 454 Ls5. Silver w black stripes. Sick car, fast and I loved working on it. But I didn't like car guys, no one could just enjoy the car someone always had something to say. Then I also would feel like a huge douche just sitting at a light with it. I don't know why but not moving in a muscle car just seemed odd. Anyway I love cars. I sold it btw.

Had a 76 CJ5. I’ll have another CJ at some point, I hope I’m “rich” enough to buy a decent Scrambler.

No, it's a sedan. I'd love to find a wagon, though.

The TD is still slow AF, but with enough patience it will get to 70.








Eventually.


ETA The sedan is still an awesome car to have.

I've got a '67 442 that still Rocket powered and matched up with a Muncie 4 speed and limited slip. It's a fun driver.

I also have a '68 300 and a '76 GMC Half ton special edition.

I have a 73 Corvette Stingray, 350, 4 speed, factory AC, T-tops. I bought it, stripped the interior out, replaced tires, brakes, radiator, fuel and brake lines, belts. Had a major life change and it has been sitting for the last year untouched. No one wants a half done project. I need to light it on fire or something.
