Show us your Cars!


Just an update... Got my Benz towed and nearly $400 later got my car back. Have not even owned it 30 days of the 45 day grace period to get plates and the city towed it no warning at all.

Anyway I have lots of new stuff for it coming in. New tires, hood strut, fuel pumps (there are 2 fuel pumps), fan, fan clutch, fan shroud, and lots of cleaning going on. I poured a little gas down the intake and put a fresh battery in it and it runs very smooth so it will be on the road soon as I get time to put it together and get the last few parts after I pay back my friend the $400 I borrowed to get it back.

Don't have a lot of pictures of my cars from the past, there have been MANY! I'm 78 and got my first car when I was 15. Started restoring old stuff in the 60's. Here's one that took me a few years to do..

Excellent...only off by 1 year. It's a '47. Only way to tell the difference is the lower hood ornament and the trunk ornament and of course the serial number.

It was a 50/50 for me on the year and I was a little unsure of model, but it looks like it had less trim than the Commodore, so I went with the Super 6. I'll admit for the last bit, I cheated by looking at pictures.

Not an easy car to guess. When I was trailering it across country (open trailer) in the days of CB radios, most on air guesses were Buick.
Thanks for playing along.

That is a real cool looking Avenger...we have an old Fiberfab building somewhat local, always wondered if it was somehow connected to the kit car manufacturer, Fiberfab. The local one makes, or made, bathtub stalls...probably not related, though they both used fiberglass to make their products :grin:.

Here's another driver I had in the 80's. Southern '66 Impala. I lived in Michigan but NEVER bought cars from the north.
