Restorification - I like it. I'm going to check out Ames now. Just window shopping.

I have a '66 Fairlane in my garage. Used to be my daily driver, so it has a stock 289 with a 2 barrel (wimpy!). I'm debating on whether I should sell it or actually get to work on it. It hasn't run in about 3 years.

The body is fairly straight with just a little surface rust under the driver's door, but the interior is trashed.

If I do sell it, I think I'm going to get it running first, then use the money for a down payment on a Ducati SWMBO says she wants a new house next year, so I told her if she gets a new house, I get to use my next Christmas bonus to buy a Duck.

Owned 2 different 72 Chevelle's. My first and second cars. Fast!

Then I got into a 77 Nova - 250 3 on the tree. Big difference! Loved the engine but it didn't smoke'em as well.

I want a dodge dart demon

I have what I consider a modern day musclecar, a 2000 Camaro SS. I'd have loved to bought an old muscle car to learn about cars as I worked on it, but with school it's just not reasonable. She's got decent power though, gets almost 20 city, and is reliable. Maybe in a few years I'll do a ratrod buildup. Thinking an old 32 ford, chopped and a Cobra would be under the hood. Long ways away though.


The Camaro is red, and I consider her pretty heavy, so I call her Rosie (a reference to the great AC/DC song about making love to a fat chick)

What I would do is sell it to me, CHEAP!

There's actually a 66 fairlane down the road from me. It's sitting beside a house, the lady that lives there doesn't own it, her ex son in law does and he called me saying things were a bit complicated. Check Please!

Come on, you haven't done it until you've done it with a fat diner waitress at 3AM. You've all done that, right?.... Right guys?.... Did everyone leave again?
