Re: The Official #! Over-the-Hill-CrunchGang Thread

My first car started with a '55 Ford 2-door body. Some older friends who built low-level race cars (you know, local dirt track stuff) helped me make it into a running vehicle. It had a '57 Ford 312 engine and a '49 Mercury transmission. The combination of parts meant that the driveshaft was too short to reach the differential, so we cut two driveshafts and welded them together. It was a real Frankenstein's monster, but I drove it for almost two years. neutral

Re: The Official #! Over-the-Hill-CrunchGang Thread

I bought my first car in 1970, right after I got out of the USAF. It was a 1965, 2-dr, baby-blue Corvair Monza with a manual transmission and dual exhaust. I didn't pay much for it. The heating system was flukey and the car was heavy in the rear and tended to spin out on sharp corners at higher speeds--especially on wet roads. sad

After doing a 360 going into a traffic rotary, I decided to get rid of it while I was still alive. I traded it in for a beautiful, "cherry" tan '63 Chevy Bel-Air with red pin-striped trim.  smile

My fist car was a "69" (but built in late 68) Ford Maverick - poor boys mustang.  The first car I remember our family owning was a black 1949 Dodge.
