Alas, all toys gone now - but over the years...

71 Dodge Charger - 383 magnum, torqueflight w/ slapstick shift, headers, etc.
69 Mustang Mach 1 - swapped 351W 3 spd for 390 4 spd
82 Trans AM - 1st year F body, stock 4 spd, piece of junk
83 RX-7 - Holley carb, modified ports, header, lowered
91 Honda CRX - cold air intake, re-chipped
71 Porsche 914 - intended for a 350 swap, but never made it, sold for parts

Thanks for bringing back the memories.

Poking around the forum at work, saw this thread and thought I'd update it a bit. Here's a pic of the three cars the wedding party rode in at my buddy's wedding. All late 60's Camaro, 442, and LeSabre. Him and his new wife took the Camaro, I was driving the 442 with 4 people, and another friend had the LeSabre with 6 people in it. Lemme tell ya, nothing better than lighting up some tires in front of a crowd of 200 people in a classic car while wearing a tuxedo.
