Now, after all the trips to Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan for the last dozen years are over, I'm retired (unemployed) and all the toys are gone. Here is what I drive now.....

I blew all my money, on beer and cars and bikes......

Yup, Just put on Judas Priest Battle Cry..... Sounds great. I was going to listen to Sabbath Heaven and Hell but the copy was not in great shape and I have my new Orto 2M Black on... Only the perfect/near perfect get to be grooved by the Black...

Nice cars...even if they were Mopars! I like the Bee.
No pics but I had a 70 Roadrunner with a 440 balanced and blueprinted. Other than that it was bone stock and did the quarter in the 13's & low 14's on a good day with street tires.

I used a $800 Soundsmith last time I played it Perry, it plays fine

The Heaven & Hell was a bonus anyway

$1800 '70 Challenger with the 440 and pistol grip shifter was probably the nicest Mopar I owned, that was about 1985. I could have had a 440 Charger for $200 more a couple years earlier. Rememebr when Mopars were cheap? I do LOL

The first was a 340 Duster that the front springs and loose centerlink were shot in and I cut up pieces of tire and used bailing wire. Talk about touchy steering, like move it an inch and you were across the road. That was a scary car period but it could burn the tires off

They are too much fun (but stoooopid expensive). B body and E body prices are crazy.

Sounds like the ball joints and tie rods were fucked also.

Yep, so do I. Gas was cheap too! 26 cents a gallon. And you got green stamps too! Good thing, those muscle cars were thirsty!
We siphoned gas at the school bus yard before they fenced it. Used a 5/8" radiator hose and could steal 20 gallons in a couple minutes. We always smelled like gas and reefer
