NOTHING COULD TOUCH IT!
a work of art it is!
Yes....something about walking softly and carrying a big stick...ha ha.
I was heavily involved in the Buick club and was addicted to the turbo Buicks for several years. The amount of torque and power that those intercooled turbo charged V6s produce is incredible. Nothing like rolling along at 40mph and nailing it only to have the rear meats break loose and walk out to the side. Spent my fair share of time at the track too.
Looks like we have a wide variety of gearheads here!
I agree with Hooch, everyone should have a bike hauler. This is mine loaded up to go to the FYDO cruise a month ago...Kelly
"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO what a ride!"
This is my (was) 1966 Chevelle Malibu. My Dad gave it to me When I was 16 years old. At that time it was primer gray and had many body panels off a SS Chevelle, and the interior was down to the springs. Before I received it my dad backed a tractor into the drivers side door and quarter panel. It had the passenger side door smashed in when my sister went to get milk at a local dairy. Also it was totaled once when she was rear ended by her best friend. The insurance company gave the car back to my dad. So when I got it it had a front clip, both doors, trunk lid, rear drivers side quarter panel, both bumpers off a 1966 SS Chevelle, and with 220,000 miles on it. After I received it we did the body work on it the best we could and repainted it. Rebuilt the motor and trans, and had the interior redone. I think we did a pretty good job rebuilding it
These pics are 25 years later at the new owners house. Just sold it a couple of weeks ago Although it looks good in the pics, it does need to be rebuilt again and I do not have the money to it right.
This is my daily driver now.
You guys have cool cars. In Holland it's difficult to drive a big truck, you have to pay road-tax per kg. So heavy car=a lot of tax...
I always drive Saab 900's.

in the early 70s my parents bought a used 1969 SAAB 99 bosch fuel injection 4 wheel disk brakes rear heat.that thing would go thru snow like nothing I have seen four wheel drive trucks included. the black paint was better than any other factory paint I have ever seen. It was an incredible car
the transmission failed in it and parts here were scarce since there were only like 10 others in the state of Iowa when my parents bought it.
I have always wanted to find another for myself but havent seen one that early or nice
