What did you use to drive? What other cars (that you THOUGHT were cool) have you owned/still own? :spanked:

5.0 Mustang GT Convert with 3:55’s – Fun Car! Put 160K on it and surprised a few Vettes. ;)
A few other less-notable stangs.
1982 280 ZX – Drove it into the ground.
1983 280 ZX Turbo (my poor-mans vette)
79 W56 Black Trans AM with olds 403 (Bandit Wanna be):partyon:
Jeep CJ5, lifted, oversized tire, billy-mobile. I will NEVER own a Jeep as a daily driver again!!
A green Mercury Zepher with a 5.0 engine. Sleeper, but not very cool.
A bunch of boring trucks and SUV’s.
A few motorcycles.
1994 LT1 Polo Green Corvette. :thumbsup:

And lastly, a 1966 Mustang Shelby GT350 Clone (still have it). Punched out 289, roller rockers, huge 533 lift cam, aluminum heads, 3:55 gears, headers, etc, etc. I have owned since high School, and it has stranded me several times. But no, it is not for sale.

What cars have you owned/still own that you considered to be cool? :nuts: :D

Only one that was cool was a 1969 Chevelle Malibu. Bright yellow with white pearl and 383 stroker. Great cruise car, especially when the 600 watt stereo system was cranked. Too bad I grew up and upgraded to my Z :laughing: :thumbsup:
