I've had a few interesting ones over the decades...my absolute favorite is my old '55 Porsche Carrera 1500RS 4 cam - the one and only ever made, which now resides in the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, GE. This photo is from when I entered her in a Porsche show in Anchorage, Alaska.



And as restored to original condition:



Originally purchased by Jan Brundage and raced, she eventually fell into my hands. The rest of the story is available at:

WDØM - Pagosa Springs, CO

Next time you're in the Porsche Museum, stop in and tell her I miss her...

Sparky dog - Beautiful roadster, just gorgeous.

George - It appears British cars are all the rage here. Looks like a lot of fun.

Muppet - speaking of a lot of fun. That looks like zero to "Hello Officer" in no time flat.

Sprdty - You know I am a Mopar man. 68-70 Chargers are my favorite years for Chargers. Beautiful.

Spritz - Those Caddies are great. That is what I am aiming for the 67. Cruise down the road.

Joe - Just awesome!

1960 Ford Thunderbird

We rebuilt her from a barn find in Utah five years ago. Great for going shopping (she has a "four body" trunk :-)

We bought the 429 Thunderbird, because the 289 Country Sedan would not have the gumption to haul our reintroduction to camping trailer.



In addition, had a 69 Cougar vert.



All are gone now.

Only thing left is another 67 Country Sedan that is currently undergoing restoration. It's a 390 car with working factory A/C.



The cars were fun when I had them, but things change. To afford retirement and the new 5th and truck, some toys had to be sacrificed.

So, there must be others here with a penchant for old cars. Show me!
The bird looks just like the one I had owned in the late 70s!! What memories!! Mine had the dual carb 426 with four speed...

At least CYBILL is still located in your garage...

My Speedster made the feature/cover story of "Excellence" magazine in February 1997. Definitely a collector's edition...
