  • I hate it when other people have the gall to tell me what I "ought" to do with my car or truck. It's my car, my budget, my life, and my choice. Go buy your own and do that your way.

  • I've always had ratty musclecars too. Way back in 91, I got a FREE, banged up, gutted, rusted out 68 Charger RT. Put a FREE 400 and 727 in it, and 3.91s, and eventually ran 13.39 at 106mph at Mission Raceway, just across the border in BC. It's in Car Craft Readers Rides, July 98, page 93. I'm Jeff, Donell is my wife.

  • No thanks . I have too much respect for the great cars of my youth not to restore their original brilliance. You can drive whatever you want but don't call it cool
    to disrespect these magnificent machines.
    I put it in the same class as these @$$holes who walk around with their underwear hanging out. Real rebels.

  • In Europe we do the same, for example in Sweden we have meetings with maby 3000 – 5000 cars in the summer! In Germany they do the same and we have one thing in our hed: Amerikan cars from 1971 and older!

  • I love this whole movement, my 85 Monte Carlo takes me everywhere and I have a blast no matter what, it's not pretty, but it's mean, and it's a 4 speed manual, never came like that, but I love it.

  • I had an old Chevy van like that. No it was worse than these. No it was much worse, there was definitely a mad max thing going.
    It was surprisingly reliable!
    Lots of funny stories!
    I knew I would miss it, but had no idea I would miss it as much as I do

  • Great vid.  1979 Malmstrom AFB Montana , first duty base in the USAF. Age 18. Found a " slightly rusty " 70 Dodge Coronet 2 door 383 car with a blown engine. Shiny red with a white interior.  I hunted around for another BB Dodge engine and of all places, found a wrecked  1972 Dodge Polara Highway Patrol car. It had been heavily rear ended and had been sitting in the weeds for a couple of years at a foreign car dealer just off of the base.  It showed 92,000 miles on it and under the hood there was a mouse nest in the carb. The dealer poured some gas in the carb and sprayed some ether in it and it STARTED and ran. It was noisy and smoky at first but settled down. It drove on the lot. I bought the car for $275.  I found a local guy to put the 440 into the  70 Coronet and besides fluids, plugs and belts …it RAN like crazy.  And the trans had a shift kit and a cam in it. At idle, the car vibrated so much the mirrors were useless.  I passed a Highway Patrol Officer on a traffic stop in I-10 ( same road where Thunderbolt and Lightfoot was filmed) in triple digits.   He eventually caught up to me but I didn't get a ticket.:)

  • 340 held some kind of NHRA record for its class for a long time in a Duster or Demon or something.

  • Yeah I've been saying this for years… The cars were built to be driven, raced, driven fast and enjoyed. All of the cars that I have owned were actually pretty clean Factory examples that I built up and took out and enjoyed on the road weather be burnouts or whatever. If it's a trailer Queen, and it constantly sets in a climate-controlled garage with a paint job on it that cost $6,000… Well good for you but that's never going to happen to me. I mean I respect the people to do whatever with their cars. But honestly if you are so worried about a tiny little Dent or scratch, perfect paint no dust Flawless interior… You better have a pretty high-dollar collector car. Some of the cars that people own are just not that… They are rough they are Rusty that have dents in them… Yep these are the best ones actually. These people are enjoying their vehicles just like what we see here.
