Lmao! A teenager trip from Chicago to Colorado. Went back to grand Spaulding for another one. A 77 tradesmen 200 again. So much fun doing those conversions and then going on trips.

I had a 57 Chevy
I had a 57 Chevy 210, bought in HS, and spent my $ right.
GM 350 HO crate engine, junkyard Muncie with clutch/bell, factory posi, traction bars, headers, just the basics.
No interior except the original back seat and I found buckets out of a 62 Jetfire for $5.
Everything else was bone stock/as-is.
Cheapest wheels I could get, some liked, some hated, but it wasn't their $ and I had little.

This car was fast, fun, and did crazy burnouts. Those Dunlaps were made of granite or something cause they wouldn't wear at all.

So many burnouts.

My first car-race car I bought (1968) for $25, 55 210 sedan 265 3 speed Foxcraft shifter in the floor, rip and tuck interior gray primer. Had some 7” cheater slicks out back, one legged rear. Can’t remember what it ran but a wonder we still have feet and legs dumping the clutch. Didn’t adjust the valves to good and they ticked, tech guy stuck us in E/Modified lol, made us cool

My friend in HS bought a real deal 67 GS 400 4 speed with Cragar GTs.
During our last class he told me he was going to look at a GS or something, his father wanted him to buy, I demanded to go with. Couldn't believe my eyes, told him if he didn't buy it I would.
Came with an nos shifter, but no Star Wars air cleaner, no right fender, no trunk lid.

It had yellow interior, in primer grey, but had the GS 340 white/red stripe in the door jamb.

Only crappy pic to survive.

Years later I was coming up on an intersection and saw him racing a Fiero, watched him jump a few curbs into a parking lot, both sides dented front to back, 4 flat tires.
Still wouldn't sell it.
Later he sold it to some moron who pulled engine/trans, gutted it, and made it a racecar.
I saw it for sale again but it was a completely different car by then.
:(

From the construction, can you tell he was a prison guard?!! His wife was bi-polar and barren, couldn't accept the fact that the "kids" next door owned their own house, had classic cars and three kids at the age of 24!



By the size of the fence, it's obvious that he had a tiny dick too.
