I am sitting here DROOLING!!! I drive a truck and my family and friends want me to get a car. I keep telling them if I get a car I am gonna get a muscle car not a family sedan. That shuts them up and gets me dreaming!! LOL

Bay City, MI(Zone 6a)

yes I love older muscle carz too! I polished it from head to toe inside and we changed the master brake thingy and have to retap out one valve screw and tonight i should be able to FLY without smoking up the neighborhood!! lol

Sounds like fun!! Luckily i can do that with my truck if i want!! It has enough power that when I get off work people move away from me til I am outta the way. Before the motor went out, I was driving a golf cart to get around from building to building. To go fast you had to floor it. The brakes also had to be floored to work decent. So going from that to a truck with super sensitive petals is lots of fun. lol. My dream muscle car is a Dodge Charger or The General Lee. Now that's a car!!!!!

I dont like Mopars! Im a chevy girl through and through! Last night we put a new air cleaner on and sealed up the leaky valve cover and "SHE" was running good and my DH took off in low and wound him out to 5000RPM's and then the worst sound you ever heard-a bunch of clunking and then a high spinning noise and poof the ride was over. We coasted into our friends and found the timming chain had came off and right through the cover. So now He is jacked up and waiting for parts. Tonight we will pull the oil pan off and drain the oil and get all the metal pieces out!! SIGH SIGH SIGH
Dh said it would have happened sooner of later and he is glad he was driving-me too cuz now he feels as bad as i did when i got his car stuck in first-that was just a linkage wiggle to fix! Will let you know what happens next!
still undecided about the paint color-all i know is the white stripes will be "mother of pearl"
Its either origal "dusk blue" or the new blue thats on the hood and deck lid!

Vian, OK

MOPAR or NO CAR! My family has a 1969 Roadrunner, a 1970 'cuda, a 1972 Barracuda and a 1974 'cuda. But our everyday drivers are all Ford products. Love those muscle cars.

WOW! What a fine little Camaro. Did you keep the original tranny? I read about your engine rebuild. Don't ya love ebay, its like gettin to snoop around in people's garage and gettin to buy what you want. Those little small block Chevies are great engines. That should provide you with years of fun...Enjoy.
