    Blew up the 318 in my 66 Dodge Coronet-ooops! Wrecked my 76 Jeep CJ-7 HT the day after I got it out of the shop it had been in for 2 months, was tired of jacking with it and regretably sold it. Now I've got 2 classic (soon to be) cars. The first is a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am 4-door 4cyl, big pimpin' I know, hold your applause. The other which I hate to say I will only have until January but this is the second of these models I've leased and have loved both of them. 2008 Pontiac G6 GXP Street Edition Coupe 3.6 DOHC, 6-speed A/T, black chrome wheels, all the bells and whistles. I will hate to let this car go and I'm not sure what to lease from GM next, I work at a Buick GMC formerly Pontiac dealer. Buick may be getting a new Regal out later this year with a 4 cyl. just don't know if it appeals to me. The Chevrolet cars aren't exciting either. I'm gonna miss Pontiac excitement.

    So don't tell me to get my classic car off the road. It gets better gas mileage than your rig does, and both of our emissions are just about nill compared to what cargo ships and the Chinese produce.
    Correction: 20 mpg, just like the 1971 VW Transporter that I drove for twenty-six years before retiring it. I know a little about poor and lacking emissions controls.

    Answer to Rugergirl: I guess I am one of those people. When I'm in traffic with an old muscle car or truck I suffer from the bad exhaust. Since I prefer to travel by bike this is especially problematic.

    I'm not a GM guy at all, but, Buick has been putting out some cool stuff in recent years. A lot of people have wrote them off, they are a sleeper entity in the car world.

    1969 Mustang convertible. 302 V-8, automatic, power steering, power top, AM radio, manual drum brakes all around.

    My cool mom bought this new in 1969 for $3,200. I kind of took it over when I turned sixteen. Still have it. 67,000 original miles. Repainted in 1981.

    Sixto,
    I meant to reply to you sooner but got a bit distracted (bought a motorcycle).

    Anyway, we have a dealer in town who kind of specializes in classics and muscle cars. Found a couple for you on his web site.

    1969 Mustang

    Not a Ford, but pretty cool -- 1966 Chevy II SS Nova

    1964 1/2 Mustang

    Or if you prefer more of a project car, 1974 V-8 Ford Maverick

    Or, if you just want something to smoke the rice burners on the street, 1955 Chevy Pro-Street

    Have fun.

    I want to get a '76 Gran Torino and paint it like in Starsky and Hutch. I'd also like a '76 Camero. My dad had one and I saw a pic once. That is a BEAUTIFUL car.
