Lots of diversity here. But the car I miss the most was my 74 Ford LTD 2-door that I got overseas. Funny story on that one...I got it free because my coworker got it as a wedding gift, and he was getting divorced not even 6 months later. It broke down on him one night and left it at one of the villages (because an island like that doesn't have towns or cities). I aksed him what he was going to do with it and he told me "if you can get it back to base under it'* own power, it'* yours." All that was wrong was the water pump, so I started it, drove for a few mins, turned it off, let it cool, and continue. It took about an hour to get it from one side of the island to the other, but I won the bet. The next day he brought me the title for it

Mine was a 1960 Chevy Impala, 283 CID, with a 4bbl carb. I sounded sweet, and looked sweeter. No pix remain, but something like this:


Thanks,
