#42 Jun 24, 2009 at 9:55 pmI remember a few, but the 1 of most interest was a car my mother drove. A 1975 Hurst/Olds. Her and a friend of hers owned 1 each. My moms was white on white on white, her friends was black on black on black. Moms was a 350, her friends was the bad boy 455. Unfortunatley after moms friend bought hers, mom had to have one. The unfortunate thing was that as rare as these were, not many to be found and Mom had to settle for the 350. Fast forward 34 years and i now own the car. It has never left the family

I let the local college use it in mechanic shop & got the whole engine rebuilt and transmission, got my license at 16, my dad got a divorce and he never put it in my name or someone elses thinking she wouldnt take it bc it was a family loom and well she did.
#44 Aug 11, 2009 at 12:41 pmMy family car growing up was a Dodge Dart for the longest time. Big piece of ****. I remember being a kid when the windshield busted all over my mom and me. I was pissed because glass went all over my lollipop. haha

A 1963 Ford Custom 500, a 1969 Ford Fairlaine, a 1976 Chevrolet pickup truck and a 1980 Pontiac Bonneville. My father also owned a MG Midget for a couple of years mixed in there, and purchased a 1976 Firebird Formula (400) which eventually became mine.

#49 Feb 26, 2010 at 1:58 pmI remember the 1940 plymoth sedan, and Dad's 1954 mercury, as well the 1965 byscane sedan and the 1967 byscane station wagon..
#50 Mar 4, 2010 at 6:08 pmMy Dad was a car salesman in the sixties. We had everthing you could think of. We had a couple of the 63 Ford T-Birds. Those were cool. The mercury speedo, the stainless steel guage pods and swivel bucket seats. Later my Dad had a 69 Charger 383/4 speed. Quite cool. Mom picked up a 70 Mustang Mach 1 351 Cleveland/4 speed. Also quite cool. I turned out to be a Pontiac nut because Grampa had a 64 LeMans, and then a 68 Bonneville. Awesome cars.
I like 'em all, but I like Pontiacs best.
Eat it up. Wear it out. Use it all.
