A MAN AND HIS MUSCLE CARS THRU THE YEARS

A MAN AND HIS MUSCLE CARS THRU THE YEARS
This from Muscle Car Fan member Carl N.
Okay, the quick summary:
I am a sixty-four-year-old retired/disabled mechanical engineer and I’ve always been a car nut. My first car was a 70 Barracuda that I bought in 72.
I restored a Couple of Ford full-size cars, a 65 and 67. I also owned a 53 and a 54 F-100 pickup trucks.
I drove The 53 for a few years but didn’t complete the restoration for either truck and traded both trucks and all parts for an 82 Chevy van.
I have several cousins still active and my next door neighbor has a few cars and is always tinkering.

I’ve attached a few pics of my past projects.

This is my 71, I'm keeping her though!!!!!

Wish I still had mine and could afford this one.

Lot of rust on this one. Someone better be ready for a ton of work. I’d say this is closer to a 8-10k car in Florida.

Driving a Ford? Put a rollback body on the old Chevy, if you drive Ford's eventually you'll need a reliable tow truck
