Mom told Kyle he could have it when she passed away but it doesn't seem like the right car for a 16 year old boys first car.
Matt I bought a real nice 1965 with a 6 cyl. a few years ago for a $1000.00. It was white and real clean inside and out. I played with it for a summer and sold it in the fall for $3000.00. If it would have had a V8 I would have kept it. Fun little car to bang around in and got lots of looks but the little 6 was lame for a sports car.
Ruppster, nice looking truck.

Nice. I've got a 94 lightning, but sadly it only runs 13s. It's a lot of fun on the street, and a great tow vehicle.

I traded a boat I had nothing in straight across for our '65, 90k original miles and had been in a barn since 1980. I drove it around a bit before i decided the brakes were too shitty and the C4 wasn't shifting too well.....It got pushed to the back of the garage until after the house is done.

That convertible is waaaay to nice for a 16 year old......however, I had two 5.0's in high school and I'm still here....

This was the newer one, 347 stroker in this one, ran a 11.26 on the shittiest slicks ever and 3.73 gears. I was 17 and my mom took this picture in front of their house.....



my 98 GT vert.


and two more stupid toys...

We spent most of saturday car shopping for Terri a new or used car. I had no idea what we wanted to buy or what was even out there. Ended up with this http://mmgauto.com/new-inventory/19XFB2F58CE104430 picking it up tonight. Shes real happy to have a new car since she has drove junk cars for the last 10 years. I havent had a car payment in 15 years so I am not as happy.

Not much fun at a drag strip, but perfect for SE Ohio roads.

I got to take a few hot laps in a warmed over one of those at mid Ohio several years ago. It was a hoot.

Will you be painting it with a brush to match your other vehicles?

J/K, excellent choice. I play the "woulda-shoulda" game a lot and in hindsight, I should have just bought another Civic to replace the totalled one. It's about the best car for the money, I think.

Eh, my "new" beater is cheap, and comfortable, and should last damn near forever, plus I drive 3000 miles a year so who really gives a shit?

If you give it a second it opens the 4 door 2012 Civic window.

Didn't work for me. Good cars, I just can't bring myself to own a Honda, not ragging on them, they are great cars, just not our style. I assume it will be plastered with fox and iron pony stickers?
