A few more old photo albums were pulled out at my parents house the other day. We figured it would be fun to post a few up here to share.

Here is another pic of the Ol' 57 at Vargo. A pic of this car not looking its best is rare so note the primer on the door as part of a repair. White rims on back for the sticky tires and Astro mags up front.



Here are two pics of a friend/teacher from Spring Garden Institute (automotive college). I know the first name was Don.





Another buddy, Bruce Kasper and his 32 Ford project form 1969 I believe.



There are some great pics of the girls from back in the day, this one happens to be my mom and her 68.



This is a 67 Nova 327 4 speed car he bought along with a 67 Camaro (below). Notice how they wanted to highlight the 327 with the extra art on the front fender.



The Camaro looks to be a convertible. Another 327 4-speed car with the obligatory mods of the day.



I think the Nova and Camaro made room for this...



Turns out this one was a keeper. Here it is in 1993 still rocking out the T3 lamps.



Flash forward a few more years and here he is happily working on a Firebird I found for a friend of mine in college. There's my 65 SS in the background.

they are great pictures. I remember Don Owens and Tommy Morata of the Pink Panther days. Bring back Vargo Dragway va-va-va-voomway! Your mom still looks that young. I saw her at the Lansdale Show!

Carried this in my wallet for 20 years before I took it out. Put it somewhere and found it another 20 years later.



Only drove it two days. 283 dual quads (AFB's), 3-speed with Hurst Mystery shifter and a 3.70 rear. Traded it to Ted Schwaggert (sp?) for the 57 seen above. Even-up but it included each of us keeping thier motor and trans. Ted had a 327 and a 4-speed. The 327 was all black was supposed to have been a "Jenkins Prepared" cira 1968.

When the 327 was still in the 57 it raced a 62 dual quad 409 SS and walked by it like it was racing a 283!

Found this out in the garage over the weekend. Back when I was a line mechanic at Coupe Chevrolet. Can anyone guess what year?



This here is a "Day 3" Tee handle. Day 1 it was bare aluminum. Day 2 it had a glover covering it in the winter and Day 3 got leather wrapped.

Hey Sammy, can you guess where this picture was taken? The 55 wagon in front was mine. No NMW towing equipment was being used at that time.
