    I'd own one of these Pontiac Catalina 1966

    Dad's car was a '70 Catalina, silver, black top, black interior, no A/C. After school the three of us in the front seat would take turns pushing the top button to put it down. Nobody could take more than a second or two with the finger on the button. Those little chrome buttons on the...

    What's The Cheapest You Remember A Gallon of Gas?

    Pretty much the same, Dad got it for 18.9¢ somewhere, don't remember where in his '61 Catalina Wagon. By the time I started driving pre OPEC, it was typically 30~35¢ / gallon. Been in Texas continuously since 1972 and don't have Clark / Sunoco stations, seems like I recall Clark having more...

    I just bought this!

    That's a time machine! It takes me back to 1969 and 1970. Everyday cars just as they were then.

    1969 Ford 500XL 2 Door Hardtop

    Really like the '70's better, check out 0:57 in the video. I'd have picked the buckets and console, AM/FM and the factory optional wheels though. And the 429 over the FE engines.

    I have an '18 300S Hemi, VERY quiet, power-o-plenty, will cruise @ 125 MPH (summer tire option comes w/hi speed engine controller) with no drama at all. I quit at 125 because things were coming faster than I was comfortable with. No AWD with V8 engines anymore.

    I didn't know the full version where they go to the end and turn around was available with that music. When I first saw it years ago it kept getting yanked from youtube, I assumed for music copyright, guess I was wrong. I thought adding the music to that footage was near genius.

    My E86 New Yorker from Ecorse, MI

    I thought the dual white stripes didn't start until 1970? I've been looking for a narrow WW radial seems like forever, all I find seem to be too wide. I think a 1/2" to 5/8" stripe was original. In a day two type look I think a 3/8" would be fine? I just can't give up my radials for the...

    2021 Escalade

    I'm pretty sure I've seen them for over $100,000.00. The upside is depreciation is horrendous, so if it's what you really want you can into one almost reasonably. They're a long way from where they started, some Cadillac bits on a Tahoe. I'd wager 90+% of them are leased. I have a buddy who...
