About jscj428’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

My first car (in 1953) was a 1951 Hudson. My next car was a typical for the era semi hot rod. A 1947 Plymouth buisness coupe (nosed, decked, lowered, dual spot lights, fender skirts, and very loud 22in Porter Mufflers). Not fast, but very noisy and cool. My mother went to work for a Lincoln/Mercury dealer and I got my first Mercury (a 1956 Montclaire) while I was in the USAF.
After I got out I bought a 1957 Mercury Montclaire with the optional Turnpike Cruiser engine (actually the Lincoln engine). It had a push-button automatic transmission. The only things I did to it was add a tach and chrome lake pipes (more show than go). I entered my first drag race (in Oklahoma City) and I won my first trophy. The bug had bit me.
Since it was very difficult to win in the "stock" classes with your family car, I bought a 1961 Volvo (B-18 engine). I was successful drag racing it in H/Sports class. Won over a dozen trophies. (best time a dazzling 19.2 in the quarter).
That wasn't very fast, so I bought a 1964 Comet Cyclone. Actually I owned two of them both red with red interiors. One was automatic and the family car, and the other was a four speed and my car. I fixed it up a little, but since I needed to drive it to work I could only do so much. I won a couple of drag trophies with it, and my big deal was being runner up in the 1966 Winternationals (H/Stock).
In 1969 the big deal for Mercury was the introduction of the Eliminator with the CJ engine, and I got one. I raced it NHRA Pure stock and AHRA show room stock until 1972. I won 45 trophies in 47 races at 6 different drag strips. It held the record for F/ShowRoom Automtatic at 13.50 and 106. I still own it.

My first car

My first car was a 1951 Hudson Commodore with the 308cuin 6. The Hornets were winning NASCAR races with that engine.

Car I wish I still had

A couple: my 1969 CJ428 Mustang Mach 1 and one of my 1964 Comet Cyclones.
I still have my 1969 CJ R code Eliminator (which is the best car I ever owned)

I hope you will consider participating in this year's Virginia Fall Classic (http://www.vafallclassic.org/index.php) in Newport News. The show is held every October and raises funds for the Childrens Hospital of the Kings Daughters (CHKD).

Never mind those dog-dish, delete everything, "sleeper" muscle cars. The personal luxury muscle car is the way to cruise!
