    Frank,

    Smart man with economic monetary unit. Probably was more fun than mine was at the time.

    49 cents pack of smokes, 1.50 jug of T-Bird, rest in the tank. Go watch the submarine races off lake Michigan with that special gal. 3 bucks in the tank would last all night back in the day.

    1980 Datsun 200sx... 100hp@5000rom if I remember the sticker under the hood correctly. Cousin and I, at age 10, had a blast in the snow (parents allowed us to drive around the neighborhood) as we realized could rev to 5k and pop the clutch in 5th gear and speedo would race to 100mph as we were near standing still... Good ole days ;)

    First car I drove was a '72 VW squareback - stick. That, and intermittently a 1970 Lincoln Continental MIII - Gold, Brown top, brown leather, 460 V-8 - the "French Connection" car. It's not easy going from VW brakes to Lincoln Brakes. First stop sign and I locked all four of them up.

    Here's my 69 2 door hard top. 460 with dual exhaust. There wasn't a spot on her until I sold her awhile back. I just love the classics. Owned a bunch of them too.:grin:

    Hey I could post my 74 Ambassador Brougham bit even I have standards.:smt009:smt009

    Nice car. My mom really felt special in her Mark. It was a great car. It had fiber optics from the tail lights to a little robot-head looking thing on the rear deck. When driving, you could look in the mirror and see what your tail lights were doing.

    John,

    Pretty wild that you drove a Squareback too. My Dad picked ours up right before we came home from Germany.

    I must say I never seen that but the cars were a city block long so a little help seeing behind you would have been a plus. I do love the big old boats. No pun intended.

    A 1948 Ford Deluxe convertible. I bought it for $85 in 1963 with 48,000 original miles from the original owner. I was a Junior in High school. Gas was 19.9c a gallon most of the time. 21.9 when no gas wars were going on. I still own that car--not one like it but "that car". Have the original bill of sale from Crenshaw Ford in LA.
