Well, maybe not Truly let her go, but I’m always open to a loan program.

660 Ac is still a thing! My kids were confused when I explained that to them.

Gravelcub actually turned me onto the El Camino. Every Saturday there’s a car club that gathers near town hall. So we leave a little early for his baseball lessons to admire the rides and the first time he saw an El Camino, it was like Squints watching Wendy Peffercorn (Sandlot Reference) he’s been obsessed ever since. And as a bonus a showroom ready El Camino cost under 20K vs (my dream Chevelle) that runs 60K. So the El Camino is growing on me.

the 71 Pontiac Lemans is also a contender.

with a 80s Duece and a Half for the daughter.......

Very generous of you my friend
I may need it for 69 months (Madagascar reference ;) )
I have always wanted one.
Man wouldn't that be a cool thing to re-imagine and Busse to release :) Bring on the Forsaken Holy Terror :)

Some of the old threads mention 25 made with 12 in micarta, not sure if it’s worth pressing but hey. A couple months wouldn’t bother me

Amazing Badger Gravelface!
I have been driving my old 54 Chevy since 74, my Dad and I converted it to a small block 350 and painted it in 79 or so, it's been an ongoing project since then. It's getting there again, new wiring, new 700R4, rebuilt 383 stroker. Still needs some glass, interior and paint. Not sure what I will do once I ever get it done...

That’s amazing! I want to get one for Gravelcub and I to work on so it’ll be ready in 3 years when he’s driving.

That would be great! Some of my best memories was of my Dad teaching me how to be a gear head. He’s with me every time I turn a wrench.

I used to run around in one of these Camaros with the Mickey Thompson sticking out the wheel wells a few inches. We ran the tires off that car, oh the good old days at 140 mph on the highway.
