This is my 70 chevelle. It is my baby and I have learned from the experience of others that it will not be sold till after I'm dead. maybe not even then.

The only one I regret is a 1966 Plymouth Barracuda. It was a nice original that I drove a couple of years in the mid 80's. They are basically a one year car and very hard to replace.

yeah...who the f*** sells a car like that?.....not I.

So, is there any tread left on the tires? Or at this point would it be like throwing a hot dog down a hallway?

Looks like you ran over an Oompa Loompa with the creeper. Only a white glove showing.

Sometimes I still miss my '65 Impala. It was only a 4 door with a 283 but it was still a great car.

1st one- 1989 Cherokee Laredo. 12 great years
2nd one- 2001 Cherokee Limited. Got it before they were gone.

I am glad I don't have this experience to share. I have had my 1987 Chevy Monte Carlo SS with t-tops and a 355ci engine since I was 17. Well, the engine is only 400 miles old...but I will keep this thing until it is no longer possible.

Silver 02 TJ Apex Edition. SOLD

Current vehicles: 06 F250 Superduty - 6.0L PSD Straight piped and tuned
03 CBR600RR -1 +2, Yoshi'd & Battlaxed

HEY, I resemble that remark! It was nineteen eighty four for gods sake!
Mmm, 68 LeMans ragtop, Pontiac 350, power glide, power top... Wish I had a pic of that car, but it was in 1985 when I sold it

95 Pontiac Grand Am. Sold it to get my Malibu. Was driving 120 miles round trip to college three times a week plus other trips to work and what have you. Pontiac developed a oil leak, oil burning and leaked rain water. It had a quad 4 and was worth maybe 1000 dollars. I was putting about 2 quarts of oil in it a week. In retrospect, should have kept it for the 3 months of driving to and from school. It was literally paid off the month I sold it. Then I could have gotten my Jeep instead of my Malibu.
