i got the car from south carolina, and the frame was full of rust and sand which made it rott through, the quarter panels are from the beltline down-BONDO and just way tooo much rust on that car, and some floorboard rust as well, im mostlikely going to strip it and then just junk the body and find another 64GP and convert it to a 4 speed or just hold on to the parts....The car runs and Drives quite well and has no problem smoking the tires in 3rd gear!

OK, I'll put my list of cars out there, only here's how I'll do it to make it more fun.
I'll post pictures of the cars and let's see who can put a year and a make/model to them.
My first restoration.
Before,

After, (hey I was only 18!)

Then there was this one,

and then this one,

and then this one that I pulled a '66 Mustang all the way from NC to Maine with,

and then this one,

and then this one,

and then this one,

and my absolute favorite was this one,

and I think the only car I ever bought brand new was this one,

which I only kept about a year because the roof leaked like a faucet and the engine knocked like a diesel when it was cold. (can you say aluminum pistons in a cast iron block?!)
Oh, and I almost forgot this old timer,

OK, let's see just how good you guys really are! Who can name all of 'em? and is that "Your final answer?" lol!

4 doors look great on most 50s cars. In the 60s the 4 doors lost all the cool body lines that the 2 doors had so it ruined them.

I was pretty close I guess...I think I got most of the years right. That nash is cool. I knew it wasn't a Ford but it does look like a 35/36 ford truck grill but the hood side panels looked more like chevy

That 1956 Chevy had a 283 v8 2 bbl and I had a '66 Mustang I had bought for someone in Maine. I hooked the two of them together with a toe bar and headed north. You should have seen some of the looks I got on I-81. I was never so proud of a Chevy in my life. I was flying along like nobodys business. It didnt faze that car one bit. More power than I needed and never blinked the whole trip. I hated to part with it.

Looks like a '59 Buick. Great picture by the way!
a 59 Pontiac Star Chief
a 64? Buick
a 66? Catalina
and lot of Power Wagons and Rams!
Is the second picture of the 59 Buick the same car as the first picture?

Yeah my 59 Electra is the dark blue one
The white/primer/rust is a '67 Skylark paid $200 for
the first red pontiac is a 62 Cat the next red one is a 62 Grand Prix
the other blue buick is a 59 lesabre i paid $200 for, decent body but that was about it

The white one was my first truck 2002 Dodge Ram, my dad bought it as a company truck for his workers in 2002 and no one used it so he gave it to me when I turned 18.


Then my '59 Electra I bought with my graduation money. Still got it

Then my Star Chief. Wouldn't sell it for anything

1990 Dodge Ram I paid $200 for

I traded the '90 for this one, 1974 W200 Power Wagon 360 4 speed 4x4

My neighbor gave me a truck that he swore still ran, 1979 D100 slant 6 4 speed, I used it for parts then junked it

1979 ford I paid $100 for. 460 big block auto The carb was shot and would only run if you poured gas down it.

My 2007 Hemi Ram. My dad said if I gave my brother my 2002 he would put a good down payment on a new truck for me. My daily driver

1967 skylark 300 2 barrel auto SUPER solid body paid $200 for it in austin

1959 Buick Lesabre paid $200 for it in Tow, Texas

1962 Pontiac Catalina 389 3 speed stick car got it from a guy in Ennis, Texas. I took the stick parts out, the motor and tranny out sold the car. I'm building a stoker 389 to 453 with this motor

1962 Pontiac Grand Prix bought it because the Cat I had was more rough than I wanted to build. High compression 303 hp 4 barrel auto bucket seats console power steering manual brakes and AC

1986 Dodge Power Ram W100 318 4 speed. I traded my 79 Ford for it. I still have this truck, I love it, great ranch truck

1963 Catalina 2 dr ht buckets, 389 3 speed stick 8 lug wheels great body, just recently sold it so I can focus on my 59. I miss it already

1976 Dodge Power Wagon W200 383 big block auto 4x4 just bought it from a guy in Wichita Falls, Texas, drove it about 400 miles back home. I get home and break a brake line so it's sitting at my parents house haha After I put a 4 speed and a 413 in it it'll be my dream Power Wagon

1972 D100 no motor paid $100 for it tagged and inspected with title. IDK what to do with it but for $100 who cares

1993 Ford Exploder V6 auto 4x4, I bought it from a friend who needed the money and I thought it would make a good ranch truck. I never could get it running. No fuel no spark, I gave up. It was actually a pretty clean vehicle

1977 Dodge Power Wagon 318 auto 4x4 Crew Cab short bed. I need to go pick it up in California. It's a big ass ugly beast but it runs good and the crew cabs are pretty rare. This will be a great ranch truck

I think that's all the cars I've had. They all ran except the 2 Fords (go figure), the 72 D100, the Lesabre, The Skylark and The 2 Catalinas. The 1990 D100 had a great running 318 but the tranny was shot. I used to drive it around the nieghborhood and you could stop at a stop sign, floor it, let the tranny slip, then it would catch and just roast those tires. hahahaha

That LeSabre looks an awful lot like one I remember in Liberty Hill...The ol' memory isn't the greatest but it was either Liberty Hill or Ithaca, Ohio where I saw one... No

Jeeze, I doubt Robert has enough bandwidth for me to list all the cars I've had..........
