A friend of mine that owned a junkyard had a Volare that had the RT option. Black with orange stripes. Not sure what ever happened to it. It may still be sitting next to his barn.

Been a while, lets bring this one back to the top.
The Nova looks like one that was down the road from my high school

They've been around long enough now, you could almost call Hi-jackers "vintage."

I don't know about the other states but back about '73 or '74 they passed a law here to regulate bumper height. If I remember right you had a three inch tolerance from original. I got stopped quite a few times but never ticketed, just hassled. I guess they wanted car bumpers to line up in a crash, too many people ran underneath some jacked up thing from behind and BOOM!

In the mid to late 80's TN used that law. When we were down there for the Rod Run they were using it for an excuse to pull people over.

Those 60s looked nice but cars with them usually had banged up rear quarter panels after awhile..  Too much negative caster with hydroplaning ease might have been the issue.. I always liked the cars with extended shackles like the 57 in the back ground..

The big thing in NY is mufflers... always a source of problems. Had my share of aggravation from it over the years. (20+ years or more ago,now) But it amazes me, I can't run glass packs on a big block, but I can have a diesel pickup that will shake your windows and darken the sky, or a Harley that will deafen an entire old folks home, and never get a second look from law enforcement.

I had a Mustang years ago that I lifted the rear to get a huge set of 50's out of the sides of the 1/4's. I used air shocks. shock extensions, anyone remember those? and shackles. I got what I wanted but it was taxed so hard it didn't have any travel. It rode like you weld a piece of metal to the frame and spring. Hit a bump and it would bounce off the ground in the back like a basketball. It was really goofy now that I think about it but as a kid it was cool.

And look at what Mustangs are going for today...  

In 1975 had a 70 convert 302/3 speed stick with a blown second gear.. I beat the hell out of it..

Yea.. You could get them cheap. A friend of mine had a fastback 'stang that I drove around and beat on. We had a 351 C with a tunnel ram and 4 speed in it. Back then you could find the stuff cheap. It was a 68 1/2 GT Fastback. You can almost buy a cheap house for what those cars go for today.
