There's a whole list of "favorites" that I WANT, but I would be quite happy to have all the cars in my possession now done to high level quality drivers.

I saw this at our local Chevelle Club show yesterday and would drive this everywhere...



I just noticed all the clothes pins on the fuel line....anyone know what that's about... Old timer heat sinks to cool the fuel ?

To help prevent vapor lock ,since they didn't have a return line to the tamk to help cool the fuel ,vapor lock was a problem,,some say it worked some say it didn't,,if you lived in the south on a hot summer day you would be looking for the clothes pins,

Mine would be a '63 Split Window Corvette.... After market pro-mod body about a foot longer top choped an inch and the whole car narrowed about 3 inches on a rectangular tube chassis with later model suspension, a big aluminum small block and a Mr. Fusion. Those should be fairly cheap by the time I'd ever finish such a project.

496, Did they make a horse drawn wagon called a GTO, and I must admit you must be the oldest street rodder on the planet, if you were on your honeymoon in 1870, LOL. Maybe it seems that long.

Don't embarrass him Bob. He is really old. Doesn't usually admit just how old he is.

Wish list

Two cars I wish I had never got rid of my only Chevy car I have ever owned, a 1963 Chevy Impala S/S 409/425 H.P. which I traded in for a 1968 Charger R/T Hemi car. Both cars were 4 speeds.

My wish list.

Another 40 Ford Coupe
39 Ford P/U
57 Ford two door post car
60 Ford Starliner

All of them with cammer engines

Bob
