    1972 Mach 1
    started life as a 351 Cleveland, 2 bbl, swapped the heads and intake with the parts from a 1971 Cleveland 4 bbl, quench chambered heads, custom ground Reed camshaft and a Holley 750 carb.
    Still has the stock auto trans and a 3.50:1 rear axle, but I plan to swap the gears for a 3.91:1, just a bit more RPM to take advantage of bigger ports and valves.

    1969 GMC 1500 stepside took out the stright six, put in a built 307. Runs great...barks tires in first three gears due to the extra work put in by my mechanic uncle, if you are running it hard. It was my Great Grandpa's truck...and my Dad backed it new off the hauler in front of the dealership when he was 15 in the fall of 1968.

    When I was 10 my Dad let me and my brothers help him restore his 1963 Ford Galaxy. That was some of he best weekends that my family spent together. Bonding time for a Father and sons and a well deserved rest for a hard working Mother.



    I don't have a digital image of the actual car it was way before digital cameras and home computers. Sadly Dad had to sell it when he got laid off in 1983.
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    I've got a 68 Mustang coupe and a 64 Chevy Nova. Both need a little tlc. We're working on then and they are getting there.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    COOL car!

    On the opposite end of the spectrum, I was looking around at MG's last night. I could see myself getting one of those; cheap and simple, but they have to be fun to drive.

    I had a '66 Ford step-side pick-up. I bought it from the original owner.....my grandpa. I sold it several years after I got it, it had 91000 miles on it when I sold it.

    The MGB coupes are very James Bond vibe. Always though they were a neat little car.

    The only downside on the MGB is the serious lack of power. If you're interested in them, take a look at The MG & MGB Experience. They have a wonderful forum with great people. There is a subset of MGB guys who put small block V8s or V6s in the cars to make them a bit zippier. Not so cheap anymore when you get into that.

    I have what I call a classic. It's a 74 Toyota landcruiser. It has a ram jet 350 Dana 60 front and rear, both locked with ARB's riding on 35's. I drove it while I was in school and now it just a toy. I wouldn't trade it for the world.
