68 Olds 442 were pretty cool looking as well. Never seen one as quick as the Mopars or most of the GM’s. I can’t remember the power plant. The 442 stood for four barrel, 4 speed and dual exhaust.

A 1959 Chevrolet Impala. Man, I don't think any model of car has every had wings like the 1959 Impala. I paid $200 for it in 1969.

A old 72 Chevy pick up from a pool company that was completely rusted out. Gave $450 for it and drove it till the spring hanger -frame rotted out and left me stranded.

Ford Escort. It was used. And old. And slow. I called it The Turtle. But I could put the back seat down and haul two large three string bales of alfalfa back there with the hatchback closed. Then, the cars would back up behind me as I climbed the hill on the little two lane back to the barn.

Finally got a pick up and have had one ever since. My old F150 was even shipped to and from Guam when I was stationed there for a year (courtesy of the military). All the locals had little Toyota pickups and the whole family frequently rode in the back, island style. They teased me about having a "Guamanian Limo"! Upgraded from an F150 to an F250 when I went from enlisted to officer in the USN. Ordered it so I could get stick shift and no bells or whistles (which added too much $$$). My current F250 is pushing 100K miles.

I see that Super Bee paint job and name on a variety of cars and trucks. What does it mean?

When I worked for the police right after high school (saving up for college) those things got broken into left and right. Great cars, but a screwdriver in the lock made for easy entry.

I did have one chick magnet. I had a 69 GTO, wish I still did.
Totaled it on a cow in 1973 one dark night. I might should have said cows as it was a five car pile up. Looked like an audition for a Dukes of Hazard show.
I had a '69 GTO. I believe it was 1973 when I totaled it too. So guy took a left turn right in front of me.
