My 1938 Chevrolet Master Deluxe 2 door with 59,000 miles. I bought her for $25 in 1955 when I was 14 years old and drove it off road for 2 years. Sold her when I went away to school...

Mine too.

I used to love driving it....great sounds....the 327 V8 had a great exhaust note and the I recall the whine of the 4 speed Muncie transmission.

It would also move very quickly.




Before i served in Vietnam i had a shiny black 1962 Chev Impala 2drht, with the 409 engine 2- 4barrel carbs, 4 on the floor.


It's good gas was much less cost back then...hahaha

Wasn't mine but my brother's......

1969 Chevelle SS convertible, 396 rat motor, 4-speed with Hurst shifter. Frost green metallic with a black interior & top. One of the sharpest cars on the road in its day.

I didn't have the bucks to buy it off of him so he sold it to a local guy who let it go to pot.

1965 947cc Renault R8 with 3-speed electromechanical automatic transaxle.

OK; kindly consider this subject to change but it's the first of my Departed vehicles that came to mind. For {too-long-backstory} I traded a 2D '62 Ford Galaxy 500XL with a 390 to a co-worker for this little 4D go-kart of a car in 1973, in Tidewater VA. 2 weeks after the deal was final, the fabled 1973 "Arab Oil Embargo" began; "odd/even" rationing, waiting-lines, the ΒΌ-tank rule; no swimming pools or movie stars. At 23 and with good knees, I could hand-push that 1675# car by its driver's A-pillar as the line moved. "Persons-unknown" had installed a toggle switch inside the glove-box that opened the gas-gauge circuit, so if I was otherwise eligible to buy gas, the gauge would read "E" on command. As nobody in Tidewater (exc the Renault dealer) would admit to knowing jack about any rear-engined Renault, nobody ever questioned how small the tank was.

But besides a consistent 39+ to the gallon the car was a lot of fun to drive, until that electromagnetic 'clutch' got wet once too often. Everything ELSE it ever needed to do, it did quite well and didn't require any high-tech equipment to keep the rest of it working. Best regards, all.

I had a '63 409, 425 hp (2 AFB carbs). When you floored it, it was like flushing a toilet. Good thing gas was cheaper then.

1964 Cheverolet SS, with 300 hp, and 4 on the floor. Came with factory vinal top, and wooden steering wheel. I kept it perfect, but traded, when I should have just kept it.

A beautiful car that 409 with dual quads. First time I saw one was in Chicago, early '64. I asked the guy if it was a real 409...he said...watch this...(he used stronger language ) and proceeded to rev the engine and pop the clutch...smoked the tires across the intersection.

BTW....I was convinced it was a 409...after this display.
