My son actually has 2 of those!

One is for purist restoration and the other (the "parts car") is scheduled to get a small block Ford in it.

We saw one a couple of years ago in the car corral at a swap meet. That one had Ford script on it and some of the folks standing around looking at it thot it was an actual '48 Ford that been narrowed, sectioned and shortened to be a 7/8 size car!

I graduated in 1981. My first car was a 1965 Ford Cortina GT. 1500cc, 4 speed, 4.10 gear. It was my dads daily for a while, but it sat for too many years and the engine froze up. My parents paid the guy down the street to rebuild it. I helped on the rebuild and learned a lot. I traded it for a 71 Ford Pinto my senior year. After I graduated, I gutted the Pinto, built a black iron cage and ran mini stocks for the next 2 years.

Dodge Ramcharger, 87 was my high school truck. Rebuilt the motor put a roller cam in it and magnum heads, MSD ignition, headers and duels. Moved out pretty good, sounded mean. Had it off road quite a bit. Shouldn't have sold it.

What dtd you drive

Hey Guys, you did great with lots of interesting stories as well as cars. You know I don't think there was a single person that paid for their Highschool ride by bagging groceries. Iwould of thougt that and working at a service station would have been the two mains of purchasing and maintaining your rides. Maybe things will pick back up and keep the subject going.

Happy New Year again, Garrell

I started with a paper route at 12, couldn't quit that until I had another job so I started in a body shop at 14, worked there on and off for 10 years, mostly part time. Got a job bagging groceries at 15, made grocery stores a living until I was 25. Worked part time in the body shop in the winter when I always had my hours cut. First car was a 55 plymouth 4 door, had a 331 hemi in it, transplant when the flathead 6 gave out, an old man owned it and couldn't drive anymore. Had about 20 cars through high school, never paid more than 30 bucks for the first 15 cars, fixed most of them up and made a few bucks. My favorite was a 64 Merc Cyclone, loved that car. One summer we had gas wars, one mile from my house, IIRC, prices were about 19.9, below cost, they finally gave it up when the city got onto them about traffic backing up into the roads. Had 3-55-56 Plymouths, 3 56 Chevies, 1 57 Chev, 2 58 chevies, 1 60 Chev, 1 61 chev, 67 Barracuda, 64 Merc Cyclone, 67 Merc, 50 Ford P.U., 60 Chev P.U., 2 basket case 41 Fords, a coupe and a sedan. All these by graduation time. The 60 Chev was by far the most reliable car. The 56 Chevies were piles, got them running and dumped them. Looking back, I think I just like the challenge of finding them and bringing them back to life, once they were drivers, I looked for another.

I knew that there had to be some bag boys out there, bet there are a lot more. That was an interesting list of highschool rides, I love the cyclones.

Yeah Dan, holy cow, I had just two high school rides (outside of my dads truck) I had my 48 Chevy pickup and my 64 Nova SS (with a six and three on the tree. )

Outside of the newspaper route I bought my truck and Nova with I have only worked in the auto body industry. One week after I graduated high school in June 1977 I was working full time at a body shop and have never missed more than a few weeks since then.

Ordered new 1972 Camaro (and bought a 1972 Yamaha) the day I graduated from college and got my first engineering job. Prior to that drove my parent's 1963 Valiant
