    Aside from chickens in the back yard, are there any other gear heads here?

    I myself am a Ford guy, and have a few classsic older (60's 70's 80's) cars and trucks.

    Post up what you have in your fleet.

    No one else here is into cars? [​IMG] I can't be the only one that raises chickens and has a few old cars in the barn.

    Here's one of mine....1968 Ford Falcon, 289 V-8 with a three speed stick.

    I'm not, but my uncle is. If you get the mustang magazine, His 1965( I think) Shelby is going to be featured in it within the next few issues. A car museum in Hershey, PA keeps wanting to take it too. I think it is worth almost $500,000 now.

    yeah i know... my car gave me 28mph but with a touch of a button, will hit high 12's (i assume, maybe faster) at the track... i used to beat modern corvettes, vipers and other muscle on the street... muscle is fun though.... i had an el camino with a procharger supercharger before... LS1 block... i think... i got it that way... wasted way too much gas, and was super loud... plus, it couldn't take a turn at all... the del sol handled (type R/integra suspension), was high HP and only weighed 1,600lbs with me driving... i was 250lbs fat... LOL...

    now i drive a brand new honda odyssea... and i love this mini van... LOVE IT!!!... probably not get another muscle car or fast car again...
