    Re: Got My Wheels Baby!!

    Congrats on the new wheels Benet!

    What kind of vehicle is Leroy?

    My 1st car was a 1965 Rambler Ambassador wagon.

    I bought it mainly for hunting so I could through hunting dogs in the back. $200 could buy you a car back in the 1975.

    My 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th cars, I wish I still had;

    1967 Olds Cutlass Supreme: $275

    1971 Dodge Challenger: $800

    1972 AMC Javelin: $1300

    1972 Olds Cutlass: $1000

    Every car I ever owned I bought & paid for including insurance.

    Re: Got My Wheels Baby!!

    my first car was a 64 Chevy Belaire with 200,000 miles on it when I got it.

    However I have managed to upgrade slightly over the years. Including my new ride I just got a couple days ago. One of the nice things about being the boss is I get to decide what kind of company car I buy for my business.


    528i BMW (What do you think Vikings Purple or what?)

    The day after I got it I had to fly up here to Philly area for the week. So I havent even gotten to drive it much yet. I cant wait to get home on Friday.

    Re: Got My Wheels Baby!!

    My first car was a 1974 Pontiac Lemans...it didn't look too good, but it had a 400 Big Block engine...and it was awesome for burning rubber and whipping donuts in people's yards! :evil4:

    I then got a 1974 Ford Mustang II...not near as roomy in the backseat, but by then I didn't need the space since I had the keys to my dad's camp! :evil4:

    I then got a 1978 Chevy Camaro, which lasted a whole 6 months before someone slammed into me from behind and pushed my front end under a huge 4-wheel drive truck. It folded the hood, tore the nose in half, jammed both doors, shattered the back glass, and knocked both the spoiler and rear window louvers over the roof and into the bed of the truck in front of me. I walked out without a scratch...thank God.

    With the insurance money and some money they gave me to sign a medical waiver, I bought another Camaro, this time a 1981 model...much nicer looking than the first one with a better sound system. I kept it pretty simple, putting 8" reverse rim deep dish Cragar SS rims on the front and 10" Cragar SS reverse rim deep dish rims on the back. That car rode SO AWESOME and it looked sweet. It only had a 305, but it sure got the chicks! I drove that car out to Cali when I moved there and had it until I moved to Dallas. I wanted to keep it because it never gave me any trouble and I wanted to give it to my nephew, but my dad wouldn't store it for me so I had to sell it. That is the one car that I wish I still had so that I could restore it. I loved the way it drove and that it never gave me any problems. ALTHOUGH I love what I have now!

    Ah! That brings back memories!

    Deep dish rims (Keystones, Cragers etc., not spinners) with 60's or 70's mounted on them & shackles and/or air shocks in the back to "jack" the rear end of the car up. 70's on the front.

    Nice sporty rides Caj. Growing up in the 1970's, I'd have figured you to be driving one of those decked out vans with the bed in the back with the fur lined sides & top. :wink:

    Re: Got My Wheels Baby!!

    That brings back some memories... first car I ever had was a 'K' registration ( 1972 ) Audi NSU 1200 which I brought from a friend of my dad's. The one thing with that car was that it was never a chick magnet, it looked like a tank, sounded like a tank and drove like a tank but I loved it ! Gave me freedom to get out and about without having to rely on buses or trains. I passed my driving test in it and kept it for a year before I upgraded to a '77 Ford Escort - wow !
    Funny thing was that the insurance on that NSU cost me more that the car did to buy about $530 - about 3 months wages - as it was classed as a sports car :lol: would love to know what races they thought that thing could compete in - especially as there was always something that needed doing to it !


    Just so you know what this type of car looked like...note the sleek german bodywork, the way the engine was tucked in at the rear of it and of course the front located boot - or trunk as some would know it as

    Stapel des Trödels as they'd say in Germany .. pile of junk as we'd say in english :lol:


    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    If the move to a 77 Ford Escort was an "upgrade", the Audi NSU 1200 must have been a real pile.

    The sleek german bodywork as you call it, was reminiscent of the early to mid 60's cars the US made.........over 7 years earlier. :wink:

    Somewhat on the lines of a Rambler or Ford Falcon
