Hello all! Name's Clutch, my wonderful loving GF is Meth.

I wouldn't call myself a chef, but I can cook the heck outta the foods I like! LOL!!

Recently, I have drained my brain trying to come up with new twists on old faves, so I decided to find a place full of others interested in the same as I who know a bit more (as I did with my car).

Speaking of my car, I am a classic car connisseur. I own and am restoring a 1966 Mustang coupe. It's a long and tedious process and the fact that I am building a business and trying to get an apartment doesn't help too much. LOL!!

Welcome from Memphis, TN:)
Preparing a fine meal with quality ingredients is the most practical way we show our love. How we plate shows the depth of our caring.

I can't post pics until I have 15 posts. :-(

It's currently got a 200ci I6 matched to a C4 auto, and is Wimbeldon(sp) white. According to the buck tag, it was originally Vintage Burgundy with a 3 speed standard tranny.

Finished specs:
9 inch rear, 302, 4 bolt main, dart block pushed to it's limits, Tremec T5 or T56, a few body modifications, shaved handles, shaved drip rails (not a rainy day driver). All in all about 40-50K in mods. A true Rebuild.

Pan! MOPAR What!!!!!!:bounce: Charger, 'Cuda, RR, Coronet or Valiant......? Maybe a Scamp?????:lol: :D ;)

I myself am a Ford man. Sadly I didn't buy into the whole restore thing when I was younger. But it sure was fun getting that 351C to fit in a '66 'Stang.:eek: Talk about "forceful persuasion"!!!!! :blush: Nuttin that the BFH theory couldn't handle tho.

But ya know.... Ford, GM, Mopar it's all good as long as they are the classics.:smoking:


O-hio? I though it was from the Wizard of OZ.:beer: :crazy: :D

Man, I just love this community! :bounce:! You never know who you're going to meet or what you'll discover.

Just for the record, the object of my automobile desires in my youth was a purple '68 Charger. But what I had to drive was my mom's Plymouth Valiant. :rolleyes: My first car was a '68 Plymouth Satellite with a 316 "baby 8". That thing could really haul, but the body was so bad I worried about taking it to the car wash.

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
57 Vette
75 Vette
63 Thunderbird
67 T-bird (just for the suicide doors!)
47 Merc, chopped and dropped
71 Cuda
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.

I haven't had anything worth mentioning since I owned that 71 Cutlas Coupe. Before that there were a couple 4 bangers from ford and a toy. Had a 71 XR-7 with a 4bbl 4blt main 351C and the sequencial tail lights even worked. Then there was my first car.... The '66 Stang. man that thing would book. No kidding at 35mph ya stood on the gas and there'd be smoke for a block and it wasn't from the engine. Low 13's at the track with out headers and in street tires.

There was that time I did have a race with a friends older brother. He had a 70 Charger RT with a 440-4. Hemi rock crusher and 4:11 dana 60. I had him by 5 cars off the start. by the end of the 1/4 he had me by 3 cars. When he dropped the dang thing into 4th on a short shift he blew my friggen doors off. My motor was screaming so bad I just couldn;t get any more outa it. :D

Hey Pan! GTX huh? That's a keeper!

My one true dream car will always remain a dream. Just doubt I'll be in a position to get one of those 67 AC Cobra SC with the 427s.o. and the webbers on top. Once had a shot at a 68 California Special for $400. Lost it by and hour and 10 bucks.:cry:

I did some stoopid stuff in my 66 when I got it. It's the stock 200ci and whatever little gears in the rear thru the C4. Got in a race with a brand new, fresh off the lot altima. Kept door to door with the thing till his radar dectector when off and he dropped back. I had the thing at 110 mph. Passed a cop (who I didn't realize was there). He pulled out, looked like a Vicki with an outed headlight, till he hit the strobes. OOPS! I was already in the right lane and my off ramp was coming up (fast) I stood on the pedla and squeezed the 4 wheel drums. Slowed to 45-50 and took my ramp, didn't stop at the bottom, made a left thru a red light and went to the far side of town before slowly driving home. Good thing the black fender was on the drivers side! I'da been busted!

Needless to say, I don't do dumb things like that anymore, but I have gotten someone pulled over. I was in my ex's Cavi (unfortunatly she had a fart cannon installed) and we were headed down Rt. 35. It was late at night and I know that side of 35 like the back of my hand. I knew all the spots where the cops hide, everything. We kept stopping at lights and I would gun it on green, get to about 65-70 and slam on the brakes. The kid would follow suit. I did this about 3 or 4 times and we got to the last light. I knew there would be a cop either before or after the bridge. Gunned it to 70 slammed on the brakes and the kid kept going. Once I got back to 50 he must have been doing about 80. As I got to the begining of the bridge I was almost t-boned by the cop. I just started laughing my *** off! The kid tried to duck onto the parkway. I missed the exit the kid and the cop took so I had to go all the way around and hit it up on the other side. Once we got there, the kid had been pulled over 20 yards from the toll booth! Owned! HAHAHAHA!!

In three years all toys will go and be turned into my retirement car, a 64 vette. Aready know the owner. He's getting the Cyclone. He will be 60 and I will turn 55. It will be all I'll need for ever. Nicest 64 I've ever seen. Sits in a carpeted heated garage as it will when I get it. Nothing fancy, just a 327/390 fuelie:eek: :talk: :smoking:
