i also started out with a 66 SS Chevy2. never completely fixed it up. we were a family of Chevy motorheads. 2 brothers and my dad. we also had a 57 chevy we ran at the strip. then i got into motocross. talk about sucking the money out of your wallet! motocross was worse than the car. between the bike and the little cutie that worked the concession stand at Nashville North, well let's just say we didn't save any money in those days.

First car 1953 Ford 4-door Flat head V-8. One memory is about 6-8 of us riding around one winter night, we had 4 flat tires, the sad part of the story is I actually had 4 spairs in the trunk. Those were the days. Three on the tree and overdrive.

My dad gave me a 34 ford 5 window coupe when I was 10. After 28 years I may finally get to drive it this year The first one I owned that I actually drove was a 72 VW beetle bug. Built it out of scrap parts from my dad's junkyard. It burned about as much oil as it did gas but it would haul me and my buddies from fishing hole to fishing hole.
I admit that I know just enough to be dangerous.....but dangerous at ever extending distances.

My second car was a midnight blue 1965(?) Jaguar XK-E with 252 HP and a top end of 145 MPH.
Ford . A station wagon with a 352 ci V8 . Dont feel sorry for me though , the entire cheerleader squad rode with me to the basketball games .

My second car was a 1960 or so Sunbeam Rapier . 4 on floor
Third was a 1950 Jaguar Mk V fixed head coupe 4 on floor
4th a 1972 Comet Gt 302 V8 auto
5th was a 1962 Jaguar XKE drop head coupe ( went 140 once)
6th was a 1962 Jaguar XKE fixed head coupe ( had this one at the same time as no.5

Wish I had all of them ( yes, even the wagon ) now .
