    Well Zip... I wish I could say the same. I was born the same year of the Chevelle LS6. I wish I could have been in those days when it was not uncommon to see a 40 Ford coupe crusin' around... or built flatheads.

    Well riggs, i've owned almost 1/2 of the cars posted here in my life time and have ofcourse sold them. Today i wish that i had a lot of them back. Man my first trophy car was a 1939 LaSalle, but i've had fords with caddy engines and 40 fords with flatheads. WoW!! those were the days and i wish i could go back to them.

    Yeah... I wish I could have been there. My dad had a 40 'Ford coupe w/a Merc flathead that he showed me... man it was cool. Anyways, My generation started turning to JUNK like Hondas with Monza tips. It's like the difference between Ronald Regan & Barrack Hussein Obama.

    Very neat video Zip. I remember most of the pics on the video. I'm glad I was there to see it first hand. Nothing like the old days.

    old cars!!!!

    Neat video Zip,

    I got my license in 1970. My first car was a 1965 Galaxie 500.

    I remember alot of the 50's style hot rods, there were still plenty of them left when I was a kid. A few survived into the 70's. I remember the gas crunch of 73-74 pretty much dented the car culture. Only those of us that REALLY wanted to play with cars soldiered on.

    Of all the cars I had and disposed of, the one I regret was a 1965 GTO with the 389 tripower. That car was a beast, two tone red and white with a red interior and a Hurst shifter. Those were the days.

    Another thing I remember, had a cousin, her husband drag raced a series of Corvettes. I recall marveling at all the trophies he used to have. Star struck a small boy.

    Zip,
    Very cool video! I ain't quite old enough to remember those days, still very cool video though.
    Pisses me off to think my first car was a VW bug with rusted through floorpans. But hey, it got me off the school bus!!
