One of my wishes is to be able to go to a Barrett Jackson auction and buy whatever car I want. Oh well maybe when I win lotto. I love watching those cars and what they get for them.

I know the spot. We may have crossed paths. Ever see a dark green 68 327 Camero on the Merritt? I had to have cinder blocks in the truck just to keep the tail end down. Traction Masters helped some.

Ahhhh....the thrill of yester-year. These cookie-cutter cars of today are nothing compared to the character of the old muscle cars.

you never know maybe we did cross paths.
remember when you would sit at the light next to another sheet metal monster and start summing up what he had by looking at the car? traction bars? the way you heard the cam spinning? looking at the rear and wondering what gears were in there? and then having to decide what to do when the light turned green!!!!
in those days there could of been a million dollars worth of cars (todays prices)
oh the thrill and ignorance of being young.

I wonder where my muscle cars ended up. Probably a metal cube down in the junk yard that got melted up for scrap. The vintage auto shows are great for memories.
Cars come and go......memories are forever.
