    1983 Pontiac 1000 5 speed manual. It had like 245000 on the engine when I got her. Oh also, the axle had been welded back on.

    1974 Vega GT 4 speed in 1974.

    Took it Corpus once to the drag strip.
    Won my bracket and then won the little eliminator division.
    My dial in time was 19.10 secs, lol.
    I was just consistent.

    Had alot of fun in that car.

    '55 Chevy 2 door coupe. IIRC, it was 1965 when I bought it from the guy who worked at the gas station. Paid $350 for it. Sounds cheap, but that's about $2800 in today's money.

    He had swapped out the original motor with a 283 4 barrel. He said it was from a '58 Vette. The original Power Glide tranny had been replaced with a 3 speed manual floor shift.
