Default Honda 160 scrambler

Replaced the mufflers with stright chrome pipes I got from a plumbing shop. Put "snuff or nots" in them. Anyone remember those things?

Flip a knob, open exhaust. Noise! Burned fingers!

Default 63 impalas

class of 95 also

had a variety of sity three imps

no "cool ones" though, just a ford door sedan with a 305 and turbo 350.
that one was named the dragon, it was red on top with black fadeaway on bottom. got the nickname dragon because i would rev the pee out of it and turn the key off on on to blow really cool flames out of it. also took out cranks and head gaskets.

then moved up to a four door hardtop that is so close to my present car its scary. i still love this car and will one day restore/hot rod to my dream car.

one on left current car the right close to my dream car

When I graduated high school in 1982 I was driving a '53 chevy truck 5 window I bought when I was 14 with grass cutting money . It is in the beginnings of a rebuild now . I've never had a desire to sell it even after 32 years , infact I'm really looking forward to driving it again . I'm not one of those people you see on the TV show " hoarders" . I just love that old truck .
I have a lust for rust

I drove a lowered 1984 Pontiac T-1000 with monza gt wheels. When I graduated I bought a 1970 Cutlass and that winter threw a .30 over W-30 455.

I drove a 66 Karmann Ghia mostly. I had a 49 Dodge 4 door, Fluid Drive even, that I took all over the back roads.(wasn't legal) I put a JC Whitney adapter and a Rochester 2 barrel carb on the flathead six. That old rust bucket would scream pretty good but it had some serious brake problems. Used the hand brake mostly.
I don't have a clue. Just a well uneducated guess. If it doesn't work, I'll try something else.
