The only car I had from my birth year was a '69 Torino GT 390. 3.25 gears and auto on floor with console and front power disc brakes. Was a sweet car with nice lines in great condition I bought in Central Texas in '87 or '88 but too ordinary to get attached to and got offered a lot more money than I bought it for so I sold it since I wasn't attached to it yet. The only '69 I've owned.
No, I've never owned a '58 model of any car or truck. However, my dad gave me a 4dr '59 chevy for a HS gaduation gift in '76. It didn't last long, I traded it for a 2dr Dodge Coronet which needed a new engine before I acutally graduated. I swapped a used engine in the Dodge on graduation day.
I owned a 67 Falcon wagon for 2 weeks, took the 289 out and put it in my 60 Falcon, then sold the wagon to a smash-em-up derby guy for $200. Doubled my money. Wouldnt mind my friends 67 Shelby GT500 though.
I was born in 78'. Can you guys think of one decent thing put out in that year? The closest I could get was a 77' Bronco I have been drooling over. Like the liscence plate on my Mach1 reads BRN2LTE(Born too late).
