That’s a really sharp pickup, I love the Explorer stripe kit. Was it a 351, 400, or 300?

The 1st LP on my '57 Chev was "70-A57". 70 was the county number, the rest should be self explanatory . . .

Does the Ford 8N tractor at five years count? No

Okay how about a 1971 Toyota Celica. 113 cubic inches and 110 hp would just barely push her to 120 mph in fourth gear and 6300 RPM recline.
0 to 30 in first
30 to 60 in second
60 to 90 in third
90 plus in fourth

That little wench took me places 4x4s feared to tread. I could try to count all the times we had her airborne, but that was a long time ago and my memory is not what it once was.

Just let it be said, "A wonderful time was had by all." One could even take care of the local MILF, if you reclined the passenger seat.

In 1959 I bought my first car...a '49 Ford 4-door sedan that had been lightly sideswiped down the passenger side. $65 Had an excellent engine and 3-speed.
Found a mint '51 Ford Victoria 2-door hardtop with a bad engine and trans for $150 and swapped in the '49's engine and trans. I was stylin!

67 Chevy II Nova, bright blue, with the 194 Straight six and automatic transmission. Bought in 1972. I had more offers to buy that car than any other since, as it was known to be a great candidate for souping up. Cost me $600. Not a hot rod as configured, but it towed my aluminum boat and that was good enough for me.

Most of the Chevy drivers were a little brain dead.

Those 2 bbl 283's were smokin' machines, though.

Are you familiar with the 'Z-eater' Super Cobra Jet Torino, by chance?

It had a coiled Cobra.........with a lil' bitty mouse in the mouth.......all sitting on the shaker.

All in all, that would have been very unlikely dining unless those Chev drivers were unskilled.

By 1970 the Chev SBs were way past the 283.

Yes, I helped a neighbor with his Torino (he called it a Cobra) back then but I do not remember any badges - seems like it had a 428 cu in "Cobra-Jet" setup - good power plant but that Torino seemed too heavy to allow top performance. I could be wrong on that - don't know very much about those Fords..

Had a 74 gran torino sport with 351 windsor. Heavy & slow, but was a cool car.
