Here's mine. I still don't know what to do with the '62 yet though. Either I am going to have to get on it or get rid of it. One or the other. But as of now I have the two trucks. The big one is basically stock with a 350 and the small one has a .030 350 with headers and a mild cam. It scoots pretty good. Now all I have to do is get it a little closer to the pavement.







And Momma's ride

I love that freakin' body ! It and the Valiant of the same vintage are jet-age, other-worldly, dreams of fifteen-cent gas premium leaded gas, full service stations manned by clean-shaven men in bow-ties who could tell ya if the car comin' down the road was a 1955 or 1956 Buick from 1/2 a mile away.

Crosley, does it say "Dodge" anywhere on the body ?

I know the original Valiants bore no Plymouth badges as they were considered a make unto themselves.

I bet he forgot to add the high performance blinkers too...

Seems like all that can be had in JC Whitney.

My primary vehicle is a 1992 GMC Sonoma ST. It is my work truck and the way the paint is flaking I may have a rat rod in the making. The 2.8 V6 has Edelbrock TES, dyno max hi flow cat and a flowmaster. Accel ignition parts and a MSD 6AL with the dial able limiter. I have poly bushing on the lower a-arm and air ride tubular uppers. I put a dual friction stage 2 centerforce clutch and a hurst competition shifer on the tranny. The rear axle is 4.10 with a zexel. It came with 15x7 ralley wheels and I changed the rears to 15x8 vette to fit the 275-60's better. I have a road master suspension kit that really helps with the weight I carry. It also stopped wheel hop when unloaded and I dump it. I got it at 35k and it now is pushing 222k. I have run synthetic oil since I got it. In the last 7k miles I have used less than half a qt. Most of that is begining to weep out the rear main.

My backup vehicle was purchased new by my father in law as his retirement present to himself. It is an 88 Crown Vic LTD LX. It has the 5.0 EFI and every option except towing. I got it from my mother in law when he passed. I hate fords but this land yacht was just too nice to let some one else have. I dyno'd it at 130 hp and 230 lbs tq. Since then I have added a few things and am still upgrading it. It has supprised a few mustangs, firebirds and camaros on the freeway.

Wifey drives an '03 Saturn Ion III. It is loaded, 16's, factory gfx and a wing. Not too bad for a plastic car. It don't look rice. It has the 2.2 ecotec and 5 speed auto. It will buzz to 6200 and shifts to second. I even like the off set dash in it. Night driving is much easier on the eyes. The left turn signal on my right side took some getting used to.

This used to be my daily driver, until the cam somehow tore it self to shreds last month. Its a 86' c10, and right now its parked in my driveway, where it waits for me to get enough money to build another engine. Im thinking maybe a big block or a 400.

And this is my 85' vette, Dont even mess with the headlight jokes, I already fixed it!! This car was supposed to be my little sister's first car, then she changed her mind and wanted an SUV So now I bought from my parents as a daily driver. It doesn't need a whole lot, just a new interior and for me to fix a spot in the paint where I hit a dog last night
