    I wish I had back my 1966 Dodge Coronet 440. My Mom was first owner, but it began to nickel and dime me to death when I couldn't afford it and that V8 sucked the gas during the times of the Great Oil Shortage. Name:  1966-Dodge-Coronet-440-magnum-yellow-2-1600x1067.jpg

But no one ever ran into me because you could see me coming a mile away. SO MUCH ROOM in those engine bays and so easy to work on, but I hadn't mastered those skils then and was short on cash.

    I was a very lucky young man. My Dad was a certified motorhead and car nut and I reaped the benefits of that! In high school I had a 69 Mach 1 and a 65 Impala SS. The Impala was a beast and the most fun I ever had with a car. Good memories every time I watch Barret-Jackson.

    Don't have pictures of the over 120 cars that I have had since 1964, but my first 2 were identical 1953 Pontiac chieftains. It was an ugly (I loved it) two tone green, dark on top and light on the bottom. It had a back seat that could easily seat 3, 300 pound men, and could accommodate anyone 6'8" tall. It had a 287 cu small block V8 (a version of Chevy's 283). I worked on cars back then and spent about 3 months combining the 2 to make 1. It wasn't my favorite car, but it was my first and I'll always remember it.
    We were a family of 10 at that time, our parents could afford nothing extra for the kids, so if you wanted something, you had to work for it. Across the street lived a couple with only one child, his dad had a very good job, but lived modestly. Their son was about my age, and when he turned 16 (because he was a very good student) his dad bought him a brand new 1968 dodge charger with a 383 4 barrel 4 speed, light blue with a white vinyl top. That was the most beautiful car I had ever seen, he took me on several rides around town and I was amazed at the power that car had. It became my new "favorite car".
    Don't get me wrong, I loved my old Pontiac, but it was a clunker compared to his.

    Thanks for the memories
