I kind of miss having a cool street car. My last one was a '65 Buick Gran Sport, nailhead 4-speed car. Sold it 17 years ago to buy our house(which we raised the kids in and still own, so no regrets on the decision to sell).


When I did have the GS I missed cruising, real cruising, not the parking lot cruises that are the norm today, but 'cruisin' the loop', wherever the loop may have been. 10-or 20 laps, a few stoplight launches (maybe side by side with another car) and even the $1.75 gallons of crappy pump gas available then.

Renton, Seward Park, Colby Avenue, Golden Gardens, Alki Beach, were the hotspots around here, back 'when'.

I miss my mind the most ....... has anyone seen it ????

I miss racing superstock and pulling the wheels out of the lights

the sound of a roller cammed pontiac 400

a quadrajet opening up the back two barrels at speed and the wommping sound it made

the running to Detroit to get a new engine in the middle of winter and stopping at Platos in Garden City for a coney Dog on the way home .

the mad Kaos of having to load everything on Thursday night to be out the door friday night after work and to the track By Saturday and then be home 2 hours before work on monday .( actually now thinking about it I don't miss it that much....)

the holloween bash a Norwalk !

the explaining to the local cops that the race car is actually a lawnmower when they got a noise complaint ... :roll:

Beating a punk with a fancy paint job with a beater looking car ..
