The Chargers, Roadrunners, Challangers, and who can forget the Hemi Cuda's the list go's on and on. It is a shame that was when the big three car companys was the very best in the world I just wish they had that respect today, who knows where this country would be today.
I wasnt around then , would have liked to of seen it all go down first hand.

Back when i first started ebaying i came across some pretty good finds but to be honest , alot of it has dried up because of ebay .

Once came across an old drag racing parts stash , it included a 392 hemi with zoomie headers still attatched to the heads , hilborn barn door injection , donovan clutch can , mickey thompson blower intake for the hemi which had never even been bolted on . Think i bought the whole lot for 250 bucks.

Bought this 57 a few years ago for me and my wifes wedding anniversary . Just the way you see it i paid 3000 for it . It was a 4 door hardtop with all new int and paint , 283 and a powerglide . Then someone offered us more money than we had thought it was worth for it and sent it down the road for $8000.00 and never did anything to the car except replace the heads and put gas and oil in it . An elderly couple down in greay summit missouri have it and still drive it to this day , they absoultey fell in love with it . Its the green one in this picture , the red one was my 57 2 door hardtop with 80,000 original miles . But thats a whole nother story.

Ok , ill quit stinking up the video thread with car stuff lol.
