Classic Car Update
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 1965 JEEP J-3000 .
HERE'S MY LATEST PROJECT A 1965 JEEP J-3000 GLADIATOR PICKUP
It's an old Nebraska farm truck that I saved from the crusher. It's pretty much all original with an AMC 327 engine, 3-speed manual transmission on the column and 4-wheel drive. So far, all I've done to it was trailer it home and hide it away in a garage. I plan to get it running, get all the mechanicals fixed and leave the exterior "as is" with its awesome patina.
MY 1968 CHEVROLET IMPALA
I had big plans for this one, but they never really came together. It was a bit of a basketcase so I planned on putting in a big block engine and a Muncie 4-speed. I ended up selling it, unfinished to a guy in Kentucky.
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.
