I saw this on I-95 on the way home today. I had to pull off the road three times for him to catch up to me to get a few pictures. Damn if he didn't get off the road the same exit as I did. I ended up following him and saw he lives first house off the main road I take home off of I-95. Talked to him a few minutes. He just got it a couple weeks ago. It's a 64 and SWEET.

Sadly, I had no camera but, I saw my first one of these on the back of a transporter headed south on I-91.



It was red and needed work but, fairly complete and likely drivable. someone was having a nice little project delivered I think.

Saw this today. '65 Chevy Malibu (?) 'vert. Don't care for the wheels but those can be changed easily.

Hmmmm..... Almost thinking I could sell the '61 pick this up and have a new daily driver.

The top looked great. I didn't really get a chance to look the car over but the for sale sign listed it as having a 330 V8.

That's all? I sold off over 500 a few years ago and probably still have that many. Of course, I know people with literally thousands of Hot Wheels. All mine are VW with a few Porsche thrown in.

At our local Cruise Night here in No-Cal. This really quiet buggy pulled up behind some huge Blown Ford. I thought my eardrums got busted from the extremely loud Ford.

Then I heard this Funny whirring sound.



I didn't get all the particulars except that it had a 20 mile range. It's pretty small and light looking so it could go like a bat outta' hell.
The 'Accelerator' was a toggle switch activated by a cable. The big switch in the back is a disconnect switch. It had 6 batteries in it.

Saw this car today at the race. It's a Hesketh 308 Formula 1 car. I actually saw James Hunt drive this very car to a win at the USGP at Watkins Glen in 1975. Kinda cool seeing a car you remember from 35 years ago. Man have formula 1 cars changed.
