In addition to post 23/27 here's another action shot.

I actually had this one put on a mug.

Well, 'best' is too subjective, and as I havent seen every car photo extant to make that determination, I would like to submit this one as certainly one of the best imnsho...

I've always liked this picture of one of my Chargers back in the day. It was a warm, comfortable day and I didn't have a care in the world. Simpler times.

1969 Hurst Olds 455 Convertible. They only made two convertibles. So the only way to own one was to build a detailed Tribute car. Full Rotisserie Restoration with NOS date coded parts with a real Hurst 455 with D-code head. Started with a documented Factory White car with true original A/C, factory Tilt, am/fm 8-track and power Driver Seat

What young man fantasize about Miss Golden Shifter aka. Lynda Vaugh, and the car rode atop of? She and the car are both still cool today. When I got the chance to meet her, I had a grin ear to ear, but when I got my car back from restoration, I never stopped ! But I can say that I’m blessed now that I have a 440 Six Pack with a Hurst Pistol Grip to shift.

Probably one of my all time favorite funny cars of the period and this picture just accentuates that fact.

And the model of it I built several years ago from the original MPC kit
