Thanks Dan. I can remember way back, when I first saw the car carrier unloading the new 1968 Mopars (Super Bee, Charger, RoadRunner, GTX) I was in awe. I had read about them, and now I was standing there watching these awesome beasts roll off the truck, listening to the throaty exhaust. I knew that I just had to have one of these beasts. It wasn't long, and I owned a '68 Charger RT. I was a young married guy with a mediocre job, but I went out on a limb and bought the car, and never regretted it. That Charger was one of the greatest cars I've ever owned!!

What a great story! The Charger has always been of a favorite of mine too, but I fell in love with the RT in Bullit,, with Steve Mqueen, what a movie that was. My good friend had a 70 Challenger, it was a clean car. I've been a Ford guy to since I was a kid. I've had two Ford cars that were my favorite, I had 70 Boss 302, man that car was crazy!! It was all factory beautiful car, Red Shaker hood and window. I also had a 67 GT 500,, tha car was absolutely the nicest car I've ever owned,, I sold it to Legendary Motorsports in 2000. I've been really blessed to have had the cars that I've had man..Sorry to ramble on..

Great stuff, Brickyard. Reminds me of the days when I used to search out CARtoons Magazine and Hot Rod Cartoons. I have fond memories of both those.
Been busy this month but will push to get something in.

I can remember when a neighbor brought home on of the new Winged Birds. My friends in the neighborhood would ogle that car constantly in the guys driveway. We didn't realize that it was parked there because the overall length and height of the rear wing prevented the car from fitting in the garage. Ha!

Thanks CM. I, too, get a warm, fuzzy feeling when I take a stroll down memory lane. Hope you get a chance to put something in this month.

Here's one. Based on an early 70s Karmann Ghia, I customized this one with a hint of a tuner/drifting influence.

Those 1970"s memories

I been on the road, and any from the sight. It is the 100 year of the Lincoln Highway this year ,so I have a lot to do Historical talks and showing my historical drawings of the road. First Thanks Kartoon for the Likes on the Spanish Fly Drawing. That Trans Am Reminds me of a 1976 black bird I traded into in 1982. A guy built the car to look stock , but it was the only Bird I know that would glide and suspension preform at 130 miles per hour. I took it up highway 101 once when a TR7 . triumph came up the fast lane . We went at it for awhile when I notched a red light in my rear view mirror. The CHP"s had those 1970"s mustangs with police interceptor engine . I got away but that TR7 got his...Signed Vagabond Artist Lincoln Highway Johnny.
