I've been lucky enough to have had 3 of those. Two 62s and a 63. all two door hardtops. Should have kept at least one.

I just saw a very nice chevy pickup of that era that was lowered and had giant ass intercooler and drag radials on all 4 corners. Was having a little gas station meeting with another fast looking pickup truck and some wild BMW z3.

I wanted to get pictures, but the owners were right there and in Rockford it's kinda a no-no to randomly walk up to owners in public and ask to take pictures of their cars.

I used to think these trucks were pretty rad, but I'm guessing the performance was paltry.

There is a mint typhoon or syclone that's practically abandoned at a house down the street from my brother's. It's in garage of house that's in foreclosure because the owner is in jail without bail for attempted murder or something.

Thought about trying to get a hold of the guys lawyer lol.

You would think they'd be understanding if the vehicle is really hooked up and nice looking. At the drag strips taking pictures can be a problem because some racers may think youre getting pics of their setup for a competitive edge. But outside of that, most car guys in my area are happy to show off and talk about their cars. Only other exception were some street racers wanting to hide their setup, and also didn't want their cars photo'ed for obvious reasons. And concern someone in the crowd might be law enforcement. Haha

I thought these were kinda cool.



But I didnt like that they only came V6. The good news is they weren't popular and aren't really sought after now. So they're not expensive and theres no pressure to maintain originality if you want to mod one. So if you find one of the probably ten that still exist and haven't met the crusher yet, you could lower it and drop a 360 in it. Or if youre baller, make a new Hemi work in it.

Shelby flopped bigtime when they slapped their name on that Dodge truck and tried to use a GM motor in a vehicle.

So,
I had a great day yesterday. I went through 2 boxes of tissues.
This is what happens when you have a poorly planted tree on a windy day.
I just put $10,000 into the motor.

That sucks.. My dad dropped a fir tree across the hood of his 50 chevy panel truck up getting firewood one time. Missed the carb so he could drive it home. He hated having done that because we never let him live it down.

Yup, I'm fully insured.
It's not from my property, so that homeowner is paying for it with their insurance.
