My 1967 Chevelle Super Sport "SS396" that I had as a high school senior. Traded it for a 1969 VW while in college, got a whole $500 trade, but hey it did need a clutch. Everytime I see one on EBAY and look at what they are worth now, I almost cry.
My first car which was a 1950 Chrysler New Yorker 4 door hard top convertible. Had a V-8 Hemi with a manual/auto shifter. If rode great and just cruised like it was made just to do that. I drove it from Travis AFB to LA to go home and it cruised at 120 MPH with ease. That was before they put speed limits on the open highways north and south US-99. Sold it shortly after but I still remember how much that car was a dream car for it's day.
2011 Palomino Maverick 1000SLLB on a 2004 Dodge Quadcab CTD Ram3500 SRW long bed equipped with Timbren springs, Stable Load bump stops, Rickson 19.5" wheels/"G" range tires and a Helwig "Big Wig" rear anti sway bar.
My first car I bought from my Dad, 1954 Meteor special redeau.(Canadian Ford) found out later it was a rare model.
Next was a 1955 Meteor 2 dr hardtop, 312 engine 3 spd od. Very rare.
1959 Ford Galaxie 2 dr hrdtp. was special ordered with power everything and had an Edsel 361 cu in engine 300+hp from factory. Again rare.
Most favorite 1964 Impala SS 327/300hp,4spd,vinyl roof, factory reverb.
I have had aprox. 40 other cars and trucks over the years I wish I still had most of them!!
2000 H.R. Imperial 38wds rr8r roadmaster, isc 350 cummins
2007 Chevy Trailblazer, Blue ox towbar
Ready Brake with breakaway.
I had a 57 with a 36HP and if you could get it to do 70, it was downhill with a tailwind.
I had a '61 with the 1200cc engine...think it was rated 40-41 hp by then..72 mph (as per the manual also) was the top speed, on a good day....but my '69 VW Beetle 1500 cc (53-53.5 hp can't recall exact rating) could touch 85 mph....93 mph, once, only once...downhill (mountain)..in Alberta.
The '69 was very strong running.
Took it to the drags (NHRA track+ timing equipment)...best time was 19.4 seconds @ 68.5 mph...may not sound too fast...but that was really hustling for a VW Type 1.
