My Old Pig Ain't Running nothing! LOL!! I passed up a 71 'Cuda with a 383, dual 4bbl (I think, They were a pair of holly street avengers), auto for the Stang cause I love Mostly Used Stuff That Ain't No Good! (note the double negative there. Very good sign that this saying was created by a GM owner. J/K!!!)
I had an 86 Ramcharger with the 316 in it and my Pop's 87 ram has it as well. Not bad, but not enough to make the tires scream. I know, I've tried in both. :cry:
I'm a classic car guy to the max, but I am looking into getting a Toyota Tacoma, brand new. I'm very weary at this point in time about getting another used American car. I would be better off with a brand new Japanese one. I have owned an 86 and 89 Mustang, 89 Topaz, 83 S-10 Blazer, 86 Ramcharger and my current DD, a 93 LeSabre and have had nothing but problems with them. Every mechanic I know will tell you, if you are looking for something that will last and is reliable, go Japanese. American cars aren't made the way they used to be.
Here's my classic wishlist:
69 Boss 429
73 Mach 1
67 T-bird (just for the suicide doors!)
47 Merc, chopped and dropped
and to round out the list, a 1920 Model T
EDIT: Speaking about horrible bodies. I've heard from a few people that there is an old super bird (or something similar) that is rusted to no end that runs at the track. Thing is supposedly quicker than greased lightning, but I think it's do to lower wind resistance. Rumor has it (I've never seen it myself) they have to shut the track down after the thing runs so they can sweep the rust off the track.
