    Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

    Loved those old cars.

    Wish they'd bring some of them back with modern drive trains that they have now. Wow.....

    Hauxfan!

    Back then cars had "Style", today they are just transportation and will never be anything else.

    I still drive one of them cars from out of the past, only more Engine and faster ...

    atashooter,

    If you are interested the car show I usually go to has a bunch of them Hot Rods for sale and some are priced pretty right, though most are no longer steel bodys ... My Brother has a 1928 Ford Roadster for sale, (I think) for 50K, its all steel with a 375 Horse 327 with 3-2's on top (approx 425 HP set up as is) and a 4 speed transmission with a Hurst shifter ... 4 wheel independant torsion bar suspension and 4 wheel disc's with a jag rear end ... To build the car today would cost over 75K ... This baby flys ...

    My first was a 1965 GTO Pontiac, 389 with 4 barrel carb. Posi-traction rear end. Pretty stock. Sure wish I had it today. Tried to replace it with a current 2008 Dodge Charger Hemi, Red with chrome wheels. A nice ride, but not the same. Fred

    Sure are some nasty cracks in the pavement behind the car. Looks like they tried to seal them, but still wide open. What kind of weather/climate ?

    If you liked that try this. You'll find it hard to believe they're models.

    OK you 50's and 60's fans here is a "real"1965 Shelby GT-350 I've had for 24 years. Time to pass the keys on to a new owner, that is to say it's for sale. Now how serious are you about reliving that long lost driving dream? Interested, more photos available and price (as they say) on request.
