Anyone here like muscle cars?


Recommended Posts

I am kinda partial to them Buicks.

I own one now. A 04 Lesabre. It has 185K on it. I'll drive it for another 200K or until something major goes wrong and then look for another one. It's far from a muscle car but it keeps on keeping on. GM made some mistakes and getting rid of the Lesarbre was one and getting rid of the S10 was another. I wont touch on their bankruptcy.

This is one of my friend Ron's cars. Ive known Ron for like 25 years and I actually work for him currently. '70 1/2 Z28. Don't ask me why its 1970-n-1/2 and not just 1970 but there is some kind of reason for it. I'm sure the Camaro enthusiasts know. He has owned this thing like forever, rarely drives it.

Mart Jeltema's other mustang. This car has a 305 cubic inch engine that turns 10,000 rpms. Yes,..I said 10,000 !! Runs in the 8 second range on the motor! He is a Ford buff for sure so if any of you guys ever have any Ford questions or problems, give me a shout and Ill get with MJ.

Here is a real doozie. One of Ron's other cars. This is a really cool piece believe it or not. Its a 1970 Buick GS Stage 1 convertible. Unfortunately, the original 455 engine has long been gone and the car needs TOTAL restoration, but.....

it's one of 232 units produced that model year. Numbers matching, mint condition '70 Stage 1 convertibles can bring 6 digit sale prices!

As you can see this one has been sitting for Oh,... about 20 years or so. It's in his trailer so I couldn't get any real good pics.

Big Daddy Ron will get her restored someday(hopefully).:thumb:

Well, its fishing time so I will leave you guys just a few more cars. First off is a 1960 Corvette. Yes, not really a "muscle car" but cool none the less. This car was at my friend's shop (Curless Auto Repair). 283ci, two 4 barrel carbs, and a 3 speed manual. All original! Quite the combo!!

Next,... from today 5/7/15 is a MOPAR! This was at one of my stops, the good guys out at More Power Inc. in Sparta. The owner is a airline pilot and from what he told me he has a stable of badd arse Mopars. Hemi's, 440 6bbl's, and this 1970 "Panther Pink" 318 'Cuda conv. It's actually his wife's car. It's been repainted more of a "girly" pink because she didn't like the original shade of pink the factory used. This car is really rare not only because of the color, but this drop top even has AC !!

Last one(for a while), is a 1969 Chevelle SS 396 4 speed. This is my friend's uncle's car. I know the guy also and heard the stories,...but this was the first time I seen the car in person. Yes,.. its in a 100 pieces, yes... it doesn't look like all that, but here is the kicker,... she only has 25,000 original miles! It spent most of its life on the drag strip 1/4 mile at a time! Cool stuff!!

That 70-1/2 Z Camaro was a major style change in that car from the 1969 model. I don't believe Chev. introduced it until the new year instead of the previous fall. I had the same car in a rust color with white vinyl interior. Got a lot of looks and compliments on it for the 4 years I owned it too.
