Ya gotta remembr that when you mention "back in the sixties" that was back in the last century!!
When you talk about the gasser wars, lots of our rodders weren't even born and have never seen a gasser run except on video....those were the days....The J's, the Anglias etc....and no danged break out rule

Anyway, Old age is a state of mind...if you don't mind being old it don't matter!!

BTW, my high school ride was a fairly new Henry J owned by a friend (but I ain't old)

I ain't relly all that old, am I? Back in the 60's, J's were made famous by the gasser crowd. Straight axles, tilt frontends, big slicks and nasty motors - you know the drill.

I said REAL hard
I wonder if a guy could widen the nose on a HenryJ enough to fit a 51 Nash body? Then maybe plunk a Cummins turbo diesel in it, and after frenching some 61 Cadillac taillights into the trunk lid, bring the exhaust out through the old tail light holes..... Call it "J. Hashillac"

I need a couple Aspirin. All this squintin's givin' me a headache~

Gotta disagree...

I personally think that pretty much every older car mentioned has redeeming qualities & I can see a rod in each & every one of them, some with more work than others.

Nothing has ever been as ugly as the recent horrors. Great calls on the Festiva & Aztec. I have to add to great cars that are practical as heck but just as ugly, my Prius & the Honda Element, which I want to buy a fleet of for delivery vans (4WD, wide side openings, wash it out, Honda reliability, ding-proof panels). Ugliest ever? The recent Monte Carlo. Looks like somebody fused a Saturn front end to a Malibu rear. MUST have had different designers for the front & rear, somebody got fired halfway thru, or something. Augh!

Good Frosty I'm pretty sure a sawzall would serve the whole "Four-Wheel-Skirts" problem

ets see. Ford Pinto, Chevy Chevette, Ford Mustang II, AMC Pacer, AMC Gremlin, Dodge Omni, several more I can`t recall,, and almost any new vehicle that looks like it`s a space ship instead of a car, which narrows it down to almost all of them. But honestly, I`d like to have a Gremlin, they were Ugly, but gotta love how they act when you stuff a 400 small block Chevy under the hood.
People badmouth the Pinto, but I bought a new one back in 1971 when I was in college... with the 4 speed and 2.0L engine it would smoke the tires and outrun most small and mid-size cars of the day. I drove the hell out of it for 120,000 miles in upstate NY until the rust, broken front coil springs and a worn cam got to more than I wanted to fix. I sold it to a guy that drove it back and forth to California at least twice before I lost track of it. The base price in '71 was $1919 and with the options, mine cost me $2100... it didn't owe me a thing.

Good Frosty Cavalier...

Or...pretty much anything that falls into the FWD-Mediocre catagory. Chevettes, and early econo-cars are fine, there is just something about a car that can never be hotrodded, such as a Cavalier, that just ruins it for me.

Hey, I resemble that remark. I had a 1962 VW Microbus delivery in HS as well, no side windows, 6 volt system. 50 hp. Painted bright Yellow. Everyone called it the Yellow Submarine. Gold shag carpet interior to boot. (circa 1975)
I was watching the R&M car auction yesterday on the tube. The VW buses are commanding high dollars. A 21 window bus started on the block at $40,000.00 and a VW Camper special with plywood cabinets (I'll say both were around '62 models) also sold for around the same price. Who would have ever thought that those would bring that kind of money. And look at all that has been destroyed over the years
