And seen the new Dodge Challenger??





Absolutely stunning

PS I took those last two myself at the 2007 NEIAS

early 70's TA's kick ass. I think you could still get the 455 at that time.

We had a family station wagon that had a 455. I know for a fact that it would go 125 mph. I can't imagine how fast it would have been in a car with 5000 less #. (7-14 MPG) what a hog

The 60's USA ruled the market, Mustangs, GTO's, T-Birds, Chevelle SS, Cuda's, Corvettes, . . . they were bad times and great times . . .nothing like the sixties

My junior & senior year of high school, I drove a '64 Chevy Impala SS exactly like the one pictured here
1964_impalass.jpg

After high school, I bought a 1972 GTO similar to the car pictured below
72-gto.jpg

Since then, it's been mostly small two seat roadsters for me.

I owned a 1970 Buick Electra 225............455cubes under the hood, Rochester Quadrajet carb that I rebuilt on the kitchen table........ran on premium gas........would throw you back into your seat like several g's of acceleration. I had it up to 110 mph when I chickened out. What a sweet ride that still got over 20 miles to a gallon of gas if you drove it sensibly.

Watch out when you're going though Searchlight. It goes from 65 mph down to 25 mph in a matter of a few hundred yards. The cops there are notorious for handing out speeding tickets. Trust Me.
