There you go.

When seeing your gallery on Photobucket, you have to copy the link titled "direct link" and put it between IMG tags.

Nice car by the way!

lol I don't think many folks here will have a classic car. But I like cars too, however I'm only 17 and stuck with a decent Nissan Altima. It's got the optional V6 and it pulls real well.

However, if I could chose any classic car to get, I'd get a 1958 Buick and when I get kids, make them clean the grille with a toothbrush as a punishment

If you haven't seen these kind of grilles look here

Unfortunately lost all my photos in a house fire many years ago, but when I turned 18 in '78 I bought a mint forest green 1969 Chevelle SS 396 375 hp with deep dish Centerlines in the back with MT street slicks, Crager S/S up front, posi, Hurst shifter and a cowl induction hood. Damn insurance was insane plus I was lucky to get 12 to 15 mpg with Sunoco premium.

I've always had an eye for classic cars, since I was just 5 or 6 years old. I've always thought it would be fun and a lot of work to do a restore, maybe someday it will happen.

We ought to break out a Mustang thread. There are more than a few of us around here.
Wow. Would love to have that/a Cobra. As much as I hate to admit it, I have an '04 V6 - 40th Anniversary (because it was what I could realistically afford at the time). Looking to get a '14 1/2 or '15 - 50th Anniversary huge V8 version of whatever they have planned special. I'm anxiously anticipating something amazing that will be a throwback to the hey-day of muscle cars but in the modern day. Not to mention a Carroll Shelby memorial.
I'll be keeping the 40th as a daily driver and 50th will be kept relatively special.

Years ago I had a 1958-1/2 (as I recall) Triumph TR3. I can't post pics because its photos are in some unopened box in my garage that I haven't unpacked yet...since moving back to CA in 2006. It had been painted a light blue, and although blue happens to be my favorite color, it just wasn't RIGHT. I bought the car with the intention of restoring it, including its color, but we were really in no financial condition to do that at the time, so I reluctantly let it go. It had a 4-speed manual transmission, convertible top [of course], and drove like a dream. If I close my eyes I can still HEAR its lovely engine as I up-shifted...

I owned a yellow 1967 tr6 for about a year, keeping those webers synced was a nightmare and it would run so ragged if it started raining 2 states away because of the crap Lucas electric system. My favorite foreign cars would be an early 70's Orange Saab Sonnet 3 or my 1972 Charcoal Lotus Europa with right hand drive.

Ha, those were awesome cars, worked at a high-end mechanics shop 2 yrs in highschool, all he worked on was Lambos, Ferraris, etc. He had customers with collections, one being a MG, I had to bring it to the carwash, funny car, the steering column & wheel were cocked off center a little by design, tiny lil fellar of a car.

My highlight was driving a 77 Detamoso Pantera, 351 Cleveland, yada yada yada, freaking powerhouse, I only cranked it up and pulled it into the shop.

I did get to drive a 38 Anglia with a blown 308 on wheelie bars, that was the coolest job in HS, but he beat up two cops who came to arrest him for battery, handcuffed them to the hyd lifts (8 car garage), raised the lifts with the cops hanging, kidnapped his secretary, cop chase ensued, went to prison, freaking crazy dude, I'd quit before that took place.

My graduating final project in HS was rebuilding a six-pack of these bad boys and remounting them back to their original intake, talk about "not make them like that anymore". I won first place btw.

Really? Wow. My uncle had a red TR6 for many years, and he--and I--loved it. He liked to tinker with it on weekends [he was a physician], but it didn't have any actual problems that I recall. It was mostly stuff like checking its oil, maybe waxing it, whatever, you know, guy stuff with his toy.

I have many favorite foreign cars. Unfortunately, they're all *WILDLY* out of my price range. As for right hand drive, I think it would be so weird getting used to that, but I suppose it's like anything else, practice makes perfect.

Steering and the pedals weren't that bad but boy let me tell you, left handed shifting took a lot of practice.

Are the pedals and gears oriented the same way? I mean, for example, the pedals:

clutch brake gas

And the gears:

1 3 5
2 4 R

I'm always amazed when I see people, like Gordon Ramsay, who [apparently] effortlessly switch between left- and right-hand driving, both in terms of which side of the road and which side of the car. I think at my advanced age (50...something), it'd be really hard to get comfortable flipping sides! Luckily, since I'm not exactly a world traveler at this point in my life, I don't have to find out.

Anyone in the SoCal area who's a classic car buff might want to head over to the Petersen Automotive Museum. I read this article yesterday about its opening its vault of 'hidden' classic cars to the public. There's a link in that article to a photo spread--definitely worth a look. Oh, have some paper towels handy if, like me, you're a drooler.

Yes, the layouts the same it's just getting the muscle memory to smoothly shift left handed.

What constitutes a classic in this thread? I don't want to muddy the water if my interpretation is incorrect :P

She is officially 20 years old, which makes her, according to my state, a "collectors' car." At 35,380 miles, she is averaging just over 1600 miles per year. Not exactly the standard definition of "muscle," but fir its time... wow.

Not really into old classic cars, but this aston martin is the exception when i saw it. It's beautiful imo. Anywhere between £500,000 to £1m just sitting there.

Hey vr4, do you still have the IRS in your Cobra?

I love my '00 GT, but hate the fact that the Cobra wasn't available that year, so I had to settle for SOHC, iron block and stick axle. I'd love to find out one day what I couldn't get!

yup. i have no plans to get rid of it either. IMO it belongs there. i DO plan on doing the entire FTBR bushing and brace kit though.


if you want it i bet you could find someone willing to do a swap or at least partial swap+cash.

Thanks, but I must put my automotive hobby on hold for a while. When I'm able to pick it up again, I'm going to shop for the one used '99-'04 Cobra that was owned by a little old lady and only driven to church on Sunday. If I put IRS in my GT, it's still an iron block 2-valve GT. If I then replace the motor, I might as well just start with a Cobra, right?

I appreciate the offer though!

I just found the off topic forums here...
This by now is an old thread...

BUT I'm an old retired CAR guy who sold his 68 SS 396 Chevelle about 6 years ago BUT still own 6 Corvettes (64 72 and 98 Convertibles as well as 76 79 and an 88 35th Special Anniv Edition Coupes..

My oldest son does have another 68 SS 396 and my son in law owns a 67 Pontiac GOT as well as a 70 Nova...

BTW...my daily driver is a 2001 Chevy Ventura Mini van OR a 2003 Pickup truck I NEED to haul parts in...

Thumbs up

I figured this would be a good place to let folks know the Barrett Jackson Auto Auction from W. Palm Beach, FL is on the Speed Channel this weekend. I enjoy watching this event, would love to go in person one of these days.

The days to get a good bargin are the first 2 days ( Thursday & Friday ) of each event, but come Saturday night forget about it. If you can't watch the whole event, always watch Saturday night that's when they bring out the big $$$$ cars.

I've added attending one to my bucket list.

Always wanted the old fashioned ford mustang Shelby gt500 but hey if someone offered me the newer model is take it in a heart beat. The only thing is I'd never be able to justify a purchase like that. Maybe sometime in the future. It'll always be my dream.

I bought the car with the intention of restoring it, including its color, but we were really in no financial condition to do that at the time, so I reluctantly let it go. It had a 4-speed manual transmission, convertible top [of course], and drove like a dream. If I close my eyes I can still HEAR its lovely engine as I up-shifted...
My dad had a black TR3, just like you describe! Not sure what year his was, but once, in the early 60's, I remember, he took us through some mountains in it. Scarey! Exciting too!

As much as I'd love to have a classic Mustang (or a Ferrari for that matter), I know that I wouldn't get much joy from driving something that rare, expensive and irreplaceable on public roads.

If I won the lottery I might buy myself one trophy car. But for everyday use I'd probably buy a '79 or later Mustang (one that has TONS of aftermarket support) and build it up to suit my needs. Buy starting with relatively inexpensive cars, I could afford to have a small fleet of cars for the cost of a single classic collector or super car.
