Thanks everyone for your kind words. She's a keeper.... I won't say which one Sam. The car has been repainted, but untouched since I sold it in 1983. All the modifications I installed are still on the car headers , traction bars, exhaust and anti-theft (hood cable lock) brings back memories. Just a dose of reality, the car barely runs at this point, but that's a good challenge. Bringing them back to life is most of the fun.

Hey Verne: Just seeing if you are paying attention. We are actually very close in age.

My first car was a 1959 Chevy Impala with a 409 in it. I was 15 at the time and just bought it for $300 from our next door neighbour. I have that car still----

And people wonder why space is at a premium here

Found this photo of my first car a a race at Argenta Newfoundland in the summer of 1972. Our track was the US Airforce runway at NAS Argentia.My first car was a 68 Camaro in Corvette Bronze. Poor photo as the fog was rolling in. Car on the left is a 68 442 convert that I owned the following year. The Camaro was a 275 horse 327 that was equipped with a TH400 by the time this photo was taken.
