Classic Car Update

  • Print

People are always asking me about my classic car.  So I thought I would give you an update on what I'm up to.  I currently have a 1967 Chevrolet Impala.  It's hibernating in my garage in about 2000 pieces!  It needs EVERYTHING.  Actually I think I have bit off more than I can chew.  The thing is...I'm learning a lot.  I've never welded before and I'm learning to weld floor pans, trunk pans and body panels.

 

HERE ARE A FEW PICTURES OF THE MESS I AM CREATING!

 

  

 

 

Here are a few pictures of the other Classic Cars that I have owned!

This is my 1966 Oldsmobile Cutlass

It was an awesome original car with the High Compression 330ci engine, a Muncie 4 speed and a 12 bolt posi rearend with 390 gears!  It kinda looked like a grandma car, but it would roast the tires for miles.

 

 

This is my 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS

This car was awesome.  It was all original with it's 300hp 327, 2 speed poweglide transmission and 12 Bolt Posi rear.  I drove it everyday for about 5 years.  Including a few 700 mile trips!  It was a great car and I regret selling it.

 

 

This is my 1965 Buick Skylark Convertable

I loved this car...it was perfect for top down cruising...and racing.  It's by far the fastest car I've owned.  It had a BUILT 455ci motor, Turbo 400 Trans and a 12 bolt rear with 3:73 gears.  It could almost pull the front wheels off the ground from a dead stop.  I only drove it about a year before a guy rearended it and smashed it.  I miss that car!

This is my 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

This was my very first car!  My 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo.  I bought it for $900 in 1985 and over the next 5 or 6 years sunk about $20,000 in repairs, rebuilds and mistakes.  My parents were great about the constant mess in our garage as I learned about what NOT to do to a classic car.
