^The 64 Thunderbolt?

The 67 Fairlane GT. During highschool a friend bought a used one with the 390. It had a cool shifter for an auto, and also had signal light indicators on the hood. The car had a 390, and it pulled pretty hard. There was a 427 limited production 427 twin carb option, and that version really hauled.

One of the best looking NA cars ever built, IMO.

ah my first car…. ahh i got it in 1987, when I was 16, a candy apple red 1969 datsun 510 that my boyfriend handed down to me. It had a nice pioneer tapedeck and the anarchy symbol spray painted on the roof. It caught on fire when I was driving it and I had to leave it at the side of the road in Lynn Valley - I tried to put it out with the mexican blanket I had on the back seat. Didn't work.

1980 ford mustang 2.3 4speed manual. I traded a case of beer for it from a guy at my dads work. It didn't pass aircare so I couldn't insure it so I did a bunch donuts in it, thrashed it and left it in a field.

Then my grandma gave me the most badass 72 dodge dart and I drove that.

that is the most reatrded thing ever even a retarded would say thats retarded

I wish I still had it! It wasn't lowered and didn't have the fancy rims like this pic^^^ but wow that was a fun little car to drive. Until it burned to the ground that is. That was a little off-putting.

1977 Buick Regal with a rusted out trunk and bald tires. Just about died drag racing a van in Edmonton. One more second and I would of piled in to the back of a car. Luckily the engine was big and I got in front of the van. The girls in the seat beside didn't stop hitting me for about an hour. Never did anything that stupid in a car again.

First car was 76Rabbit. I picked it up when i was 15 with money from my lawn cutting route and a Suzuki DR100 i had sold. I affectionately called it Kermit the Rabbit because it was that bright green. Went like stink but i was not happy with stock so put on a bottle muffler, hacked off the air pump and polution control, put a webber carb with k[HTML_REMOVED]n filter and thought it was dope.
It was actually quick lol, If anyone knows the highway that goes from Trail up the mountain to Rossland(steep)…it would pull 75 mph. My big block schoolmate did not believe me till we had a race. I had a passion for gravel roads wanted to be a rally star lol. Cant believe i never drove off a cliff.

^As much as I hate FWD, The old school Rabbits were awesome. You reminded me of the two I had…a 79 that I drove the living snot out of and an 80 that I picked up but was rusted from the inside out.

How is this for stupid awesome! Check it…read this if you have a sec(I'm 17/18 at the time)
So the trailing arms on one side of the rear axle(the links that hold the axle in place under the car)…break free from the floor pan cuz of the rust…so that side of the axle/wheel are freely floating between the front and back of the wheel well. Totally undrivable.
So yours truly, AKA, Loopie-McGyver…goes and buys two sections of heavy chain and two locks…I roughly center the wheel in the wheel well and run chain under the car from the axle to the front and rear bumpers to secure the axle in place. Of course there is a little slack cuz of the huge chain links.
So I'm driving this awesomeness around Port Hardy for a mth I think. The slack in the axle placement was like 4wh steering, you just had to anticipate it…and when the slack in the long chain to the front went tight it was a huge slap on the under body.

:lol: crazy.
