1963 Mercury Colony Park (midly modified)



1968 Chrysler 300. Pretty cool story behind it: It was my fathers car back in the 80's, however he had to sell it because he was putting a down payment on a house (I was being born, so they needed to get a bigger place)


A couple of months ago, my father found his exact car in FL. Bought it back.


It is currently going through a full restoration.

I love it when there are stories like this behind the car. My 1st car was a hand me down from my older brother it was a 63 barracuda fast back, it was one of the small scale ones with the bubbled fast back. It was metal flake gold with gold leather interior, I loved that car. I lived in the country and that car was FREEDOM. If I could find it, now that would be one to catch.

I can't wait until it is completed. High optioned car too - we have the VIN being sent to Galen Govier right now to find out how many with the same options exist.
-A/C
-Cruise Control
-Power Seats
-Power vent windows
-440 TNT motor (not the standard 440)
-AM/FM AMPED stereo system
-high beam sensor ("the eye")

the list goes on. It's surprisingly a colum shift without a tach, however it has all of the go-fast and high end options on the car. Considering the car spent nearly it's entire life in new england the body is in great shape, and the motor is near perfect.

OH THE HUMANITY!!!!!!!!!!!

I just pulled the car cover off my 2008 Mustang GT this past week. Much more fun to drive than my 1993 Dodge Grand Caravan.


I've got a 1970 Torino GT Convertible with a 429 big block. It's bored .060 with a pretty lumpy cam. I restored it from a quarter-less Wisconsin rust-baby with a seized 302.

I've also got two project cars that aren't running yet.

A 1963 Fairlane 2-door sedan, it's only got the 200 ci 6 cylinder but the car is a time capsule. It's a Detroit DSO (district sales office) and spent it's entire life in Hamtramck, but there's no rot and it only has 7560.8 miles.



Finally, I've got one more 1963 Fairlane. It's a sports coupe (2 door hardtop) with a full tube chassis, ladder bars, 6-point roll cage, and a fuel cell, but no engine or transmission and little glass.
