A 1972 C3 Stingray Corvette clothed in factory “Ontario Orange”. This was the last year with chrome bumpers front and back. This is a 350 car with an M-21 Muncie close ratio 4-speed. The 350 either put out 200 or 255 horsepower that year and I’m not sure which motor this car has. But she is a good looking girl all shined up at a local car show last weekend!
So this girl is similar to the one that stole my heart as a 16 year old boy in 1979. My step dad and I were visiting local used car lots looking for my first car and a lady like this caught my eye and has had my heart in her hands ever since.
1969 Camaro Super Sport with the Rally Sport option, D90 striping, non-functional hood breathers, triple black, rally wheels. The pictured car is a small block 350. The one that stole my heart had a 396 big block, 325, 350 or 375 horsepower mated to a 4-speed and gauges on the console. The only aftermarket product on her was a set of chrome traction bars peeking out from in front of the rear tires.
I wasn’t able to purchase her that day as 1) My stepdad said I’d probably get killed in her (and he was probably right) and 2) The asking price was $3,500 which was a pretty penny in 1979 for a 16 year old who bagged groceries for a living.
A new mouseketeer will be joining us in October!!! We’re going to tell the rest of our friends and family on Valentines day but I couldn’t wait to at least post it on here! We’re so excited for this new chapter of our life!
1966 Chevy II Super Sport. This girl, dressed in “Tuxedo Black”, has a 327 four barrel (Rochester or Carter?) and I’m not sure if it’s the 275 or the 350 horsepower version. Also don’t know if that’s a Muncie or a Saginaw (probably Saginaw since it’s a small block) four speed under her but she’s got a Hurst linkage. There’s a stiff positraction rearend and an AM radio; so basic but the cool-factor is way up there! If you’ve been following me (like 13,000+ have in less than 176 days since I started this Tumblr) for any time, you know that Craiger S/S rims are the only aftermarket rims I can tolerate. :-). I like my classic cars factory and this girl is a perfect 60’s specimen!
