Nope, and I've never been on a train before either. I bought my first truck in 1977 a beat up 1965 Ford F100.

I knew exactly what TG meant.
(I drove wife's car to Little Rock and back over the weekend. It was 'ok'... but sure wished I had taken the truck instead.)

Personally, I've got a silver 1960 T-Bird. Garage kept, pretty much all original. Got the 430 V-8 in it. 350 HP if I remember correctly. I guess that can be classified as EARLY muscle. :lol2:

Pretty high on my want list is some of that good ole Mopar muscle. Challengers have always had a special place in my heart since my dad started taking me to car shows at the ripe young age of "able to open my eyes". I chose an SS Camaro over a Challenger when I bought a new daily driver in 2015, but my next addition will most likely be an antique Challenger. It was hard to stay away from the Hellcat though...

Not necessarily mine, but also on the farm, we have a '59 Chevy Apache truck with the Napco 4WD under it. It needs to be restored and looks a bit rough. The fun part is, the engine is far from what originally came in it, so you could say it's a bit of a sleeper. :lol2:

Dad sold his turkey sh*t from the farm for years until he had enough money to buy (what I call) his 2nd daughter. We are both 1994 models, but she's more of a looker than I am. That one's a Viper.

I can post pictures if anyone is interested. I guess you could say we kinda have an odd collection... :lol2:

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cattle and that's pretty much the same thing as far as I'm concerned! ;-)

I drove a 57 Apache for years.
Can't remember the straight 6 number had a four on the floor.
It would do 60 mph up or down hill wide open.

Old trucks are hot right now. You won't find the "cool guy" driving a muscle car in a movie or TV show much anymore, they will be driving an old truck or Bronco. I've seen a million old Camaro's and Mustangs and so has everyone else (no offense), and the rarer muscle cars are priced WAY out of the middle class dad's range. That may be a factor in the rise of popularity of old trucks, cheaper, easier to find, easy to work on MANLY LOOKING! Almost all of the older trucks are patina builds too, where you keep the rust and paint, making it cheaper as well, and more authentic. Shiny "hot rod" look is being replaced by slammed patina trucks on stock appearing wheels. I posted a pic of my old firebird on Instagram and got 27 likes, I posted a pic of my old F150 and it was well over 300. Vintage camper shells are hugely popular as well.
