Sigh...now we have oversized fart cans, flimsy wings and plastic intake tubes with neon lights inside. Remember when exhaust pipes used to dump at the axle or just behind the rear tire and it was uncool to see-em...except for just the tips.

Bottle cap hubcaps was cool and Cragar S/S mags were the most popular rim (didn't care for em myself, more a unpolished Centerline kinda dude). 20 coats of laquer paint in candy apple red turned every ones head and white letter tires with wrinkles...

I haven't smelled tires smoke from a car in years, except at the racetrack. I remember a good friend had a original 383 Dart with a 440 transplant and it could smoke the tires through the first two gears, we were 17 and living the life. Now you got 4 cylinder buzz bombs with loud stereos and 1 inch of ground clearance full of gangsters driving around with guns trying to lose theirs.

Not sure if this is a good thing?

What happened?

Yup it is a good thing. Change is good as long as you never let go of what was and still is. I'll never let go of the use to be years and do enjoy watching and helping my son with his projects. I went through the lowrider loud boom boom truck with him on a 2 year $$$ show winning project and really loved it. Guess what. He and all his friends have sold those toys and have all put their money and time into classic Chevy trucks (67 to 72). They are true street rodders with their done up small blocks with all the suspension tricks, Hot Rod magazines, MoonEyes catalogues and yes there is a God. They are all hooked on the oldies and swap meets and this at 20 years old. I love it.

I ran one of those big boxes on a BBC B/Gas car back in the late sixties, you really brought back some memories. Hmm I wonder what Mary Jo does now???
