Our youth in hot rodding

Post by Reb Stew on December 22nd 2013, 7:00 pm

I know some of us are all over the age chart but there are some cars I look at that just brings back that feeling of youth and freedom. A time when you didn't have a care in the world other than girls, cars rock n roll and enough pocket change to put gas in whatever we were driving.

Some cars I see just bring those times back. Here are a few. What do you guys see that brings back those times?

2 ton 77 T bird with a hood scoop. I remember Cougar we beat on like this. Put a set of tire on it on a Friday morning and by Sunday they were slicks from line locks all week.

I think I recall seeing that Mustang for sale years ago out off of Rt.42...stopped by and checked it out but the price was not in budget and the notchback was always a bit 'meh' for me personally. I think that's because the fastback was just SOOOO knock-out gorgeous on the '69-'70 models.

Later,

Looks like something I'd own. I had a cop pull me over one time and ask me if it was against the law to drive without a hood on my car. I looked at him and told him he was the cop. If it was wright a ticket so I could get back to cruising the 'Avenue..

When I was 16 it wasn't uncommon to see cool cars. You never really thought they would ever be gone. Man was I wrong. When I first started driving there was one of these, I'm sure it was the real deal sitting on old 25 out past Richwood, Ky I thought about asking if it was for sale but never did. It sat there for a few years and it's hard to say what happened to it.
