    This is My first car, still driving this 70 for 33 years now. I stripped and painted and have a 355 I built for it in 1985, TH350 that can bark third hard, a 373 Z28 rear that 10 years ago was attached to Ladder bar and 8 pt Roll bar. I love this one. Hey OP I didn't see your El Camino pics?

    You should maybe consider getting another car Jason. I did just for the fact i wanted to get another one before they go back up in price and out of my reach money wise.

    that is a very impressive collection of mopars, jasonc.

    when i was 18, i had the chance to buy a 67 gtx with 4 speed for 2400.00. i don't know why i passed on that car. i did have several 65 gto's. one was try power/4speed/power windows/power seat/am/fm radio...etc. the color was originally iris mist purple with white interior.

    sadly, i don't have any pics handy. i guess i shall go through my extremely large box of prints and see if i can find some.

    I grew up around drag racing and big V8s. My Dad was into Corvette restoration when I was kid and gradually moved onto Mopars by the end of the '80s. I used to REALLY want a late 340 4-speed A-body, but E-body prices prices skyrocketed dragging Dart prices up with them keeping them out of my reach, and these days I don't have room for a 2nd car or a garage. I'm not even joking though when I say I want to put together a daily driver S52/S54 '63-'64 Valiant wagon.


    No V8 but I had a clean, lowered '73 Valiant with a big system as a teenager in the '90s. Only 40k miles when I bought it, drove it across the country twice. My love for the slant-6 fed my interest in BMW sixes.






    My Pops is almost 70 and has a '64 Plymouth Fury with a 500hp .060-over pump gas 440 in front of a push-button, manual valve body auto (manually shifting a 500hp push-button car is nuts), as well as a restored '69 Road Runner 426 Hemi 4-speed he usually keeps as a "day 2" car with bigger carbs, cam, Hurst, period Sun tach, line lock, cheaters/skinnies, etc.. The '64 he redid himself, the Road Runner was half-ass restored in the mid-'90s by a previous owner with my Dad and I finishing it and fixing their mistakes.





















    It doesn't matter how many time I go to drive that '64, I know what is coming, but even when it has been sitting you just have to tap the key and immediately are startled and consumed by that sound of a big block through Flowmasters. I get why people are so into those type of cars.

    I miss the power! The Corvair is a very fun car but has no plant you in the seat and hold on excitement. I'd love to get another 66 Coronet 500. Or maybe a 69-70 Dart Swinger 340.

    Damn Jason you had a nice collection going on there lol !!!!! My first car was in 1988 a 1969 chevelle SS396 (was stolen) then i got a 1967 Ford Fairlane 500 with a 289 v8 4 bbl and that all stopped about 1992 (accident) and i haven't had another Muscle Car till now. A 24 year gap between having a Muscle Car is way to long !!!
