Due to some no parking Chevy morons where I work, I no longer drive a nice car. I drive a foreign car, mostly Chevy Lumina

Yep. 86 vw Jetta, pretty ugly and not exactly a chick magnet but it gets 30+mpg and is still going strong after 260000 miles.

Kind of tough to drive a foreign car when all I own is SAE tools I inherited from my dad, which he bought back in the '50's. I couldn't work on metric crap, plus I have this major allergy to the smell of decaying plastic. So until the world does the right thing and switches back over to SAE and real metal, I'll just keep rebuilding my old Fords:

1965 Galaxie 500 2drHT 352, FMX, PS, PB, AC, original style medium blue leather interior, factory light blue (wife's car... she loves it!), all factory appearance in/out

1965 Galaxie 500 LTD 2drHT 406/390/427hybrid, HEH-CC 4spd, Equalock, mandrel bend 2.5" Spintech muffler exhaust w/ hidden oval tips exiting ahead of rear wheels, PS, PB, AC, radio and clock delete dash, original style black leather LTD interior, LTD 4bar spinner wheelcovers, factory black, all factory appearance in/out

Starting this summer:
1962 Mercury MontereyCustom 2drHT, 406/390/427 hybrid w/ factory short cast iron headers and 2-4V, T-10, 3.7 Equalock, factory AC, original style black & white leather interior, factory black and white ext., radio delete, mandrel bend 2.5" Spintech muffler exhaust w/ hidden oval tips exiting ahead of rear wheels, Mercury 8" wide 14" dia. 3 bar spinner Magnum500's with raised white letters (is EVERY Mercury wheel treatment TOTALLY FUD-looking except for '56 hubcaps, '67-68 Cougar wheelcovers, and Mercury Magnums?)

Only Fords and a Lincoln here with the exception of an '84 Suburban which will be replaced by an old Ford pickup. I'm looking for a '61-'64 F-100 on the cheap. I don't look down on anyone for owning a Japanese or German car...it's just not my thing...

i had a VW rabbit, but i think it was actually made in PA? probably more american made parts in it than there are in my '97 Ranger. Other than my VW this has been an all american car household and shall remain that way.
later
