My official car thread

Recommended Posts

Yeah, just about every Chevelle is a sweet ride but those were special, they only made them like that for two years on purpose.  I could get a kit car but **** that, I wan't the real mccoy.

64 is still my favorite year. The first car I ever owned was a 64, bought it when I was 16. Unfortunately it was a 4 door but it's what I could afford at the time and I still made it into a hotrod LoL

 

Picture after I first bought it:

Picture after I covered the wheels with sheets and taped off the windows and trim with newspaper and masking tape to spray the whole thing with about 10 rattle cans of primer Lmao I loved that ****ing car. Picture of a picture so **** quality:

nice whip bro....was that the 5.0 or that snappy v6. I got the 13-14 style..5.ho!

 

V6 - I think 300 hp is underrated.  

 

I drove the piss out of it before I had to return it and get the crappy rental my insurance will pay for until my actual car gets fixed

300 horse is healthy man

 

I remember when V8's were hard pressed to make 300

 

300 ain't nothing to snub, even in a car that heavy

i got a Renault Scenic.

 

positive things about it: it drives on LPG and Gasoline,i have all kinds of hidden compartments to smuggle goods if needed lol ,in one comparment i can open a valve and the aircon fills the compartment with cold air so that compartment makes it a fridge.

ik can take all the chairs in the back out and turn it into a van.

drives very nicely and smooth,and for the baby it`s ideal with much loading space,but the cars looks aren`t all that. but IDGAF.

bro and I almost lost it in a curve, not that it handled bad, just that I wasn't expecting the power.  It had the paddle-shifters too which were the best ones I've ever used.

I wish I had something small like that to skate around and the ice/snow to support it.

The only pros with snow is that you can have fun in a car, other than that it aint nothing to wish for..

 

Yeah where I live when it snows it's the end of the world.  Nobody knows how to drive in it and cars just start smashing in to each other.

not really, i have to change the coil packs in it from time to time.  aside from that it's an absolute beast.

 

it's almost 12 years old now and i really like those a3/s3's.  they are plenty badass for less money

I don't know how much longer I'm going to be in my current car.  I might get something like that after.  

 

I really want to get one of these:

First gen Chevelles are awesome! My top 2 favorite cars of all time are the '65 Chevelle SS Z16 with the 396 (same overall body style as the '64 just some minor differences, mainly in the grille) and the '87 Buick GNX.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

 

There's a guy that specializes in Grand Nationals that has a shop like 1 mile from my house.  There's a GNX up there and he has a track only car that runs 8s. 

 

There's also a regular Grand National in my neighborhood that I'll see on the road sometimes.  

 

I want one so bad.

Me too. It sucks the prices have gone through the roof. About 10 years ago you could pick one up for next to nothing (regular Grand National not GNX). You could always go with a Buick Regal T-Type. Sort of a poor man's Grand National. I've thought about buying one myself. It doesn't take much to get the power up to the GNX level or higher and they have the same hood, etc. T-Type:

Yeah I've looked at Regal T-types too.  It was 2003 when I first started looking at them.  About the same time I was looking to join the military, I was going to use the sign on money to buy one.  They were only like $8000 or something them.  Good luck with that today!

65 z16 was the first true muscle car in my opinion. There were other cars with big horse engines before that (409 64 Impala, 64 GTO triple deuce, etc..) but that was the first year of big engine/small car. Again that's just my opinion

 

The Buick Grand National/GNX/T-Type will always be a car that has a special place in my heart. Which is funny because they ran a 6 cylinder, but **** they made horses and were a good looking car in my opinion

Those six cylinders can make HUGE amounts of horsepower with a stock bottom end. It really quite impressive

The thing about Grand Nationals is they are a car-guys car.  Most people have no idea what they are

Troof

 

The only muscle car of the 80's in my opinion

 

And with a v6, v8 guys like to laugh at that but not this guy

I can't see the pics for some reason, but I'm assuming one is a '95-'96 Impala SS and one is a Camaro from WarWest's response. Those are sweet cars. No one else was making cool 4 doors at the time. What kind of Camaro?

Looks to be a late 70's Z28, which alone is cool

 

But it's ****ing tubbed and has a lung sticking through the hood with two 4's on the top! BADASS!!

 

I WILL have a roots blower car before I die. Nothing says horsepower more than a blower sticking out of the hood

I was looking at them while I was reading the damn thread then they vanished.

 

Yea. 78 z28. 327 rat motor, blower, nitro, tubed .trunk shaved to fit 24 inch wide mickey slicks.

 

65 GOAT. Tri-power. Was a **** to get this done to where I wanted it. Was going to switch it out. But thought it was different.

Not tubed. This is my cruzier.

 

 

Yes sir. 96 SS. I will never get rid of it.

Not to be a ****, but wouldn't a 327 be a mouse (small block) and not a rat (big block). 427 maybe? I tried to type this without sounding like an internet nerdgin pointing out a mistake, so I hope it didn't come off that way lol.

love rebuilding cars. Did the Z with my dad when I was about 16. Took us 3 years to get it done.

 

Bought the GOAT of a buddy about 15 years ago. Had to put alot of work into this one to restore it. Body was a nasty maroon, tri was nothing but issues. But one of my favorite cars.

 

Looking for a late model T-Bird for my next project.

327 is usually a small block (mouse) but can be a big block (rat) depending on the internals

 

It's actually good that you bring up a 427 because there's a 427 small block and there's also a 427 big block

 

Also there is a 400 small block and a 400 big block

 

Pontiac engines in the 70's were actually all the same size (physically) in the 70's but they had a small and big block for many cubes depending on the internals

I know. I was just looking for clarification. Modern 7.0 LS7 = 427 cubic inches = small block. Old school 427 from a 67 'Vette = big block. I was just curious about his setup.

Agreed 100% on working on older cars, piece of cake

 

By older T-bird do you mean 90's with the v8 or the turbo coupe?

They had a lot of engines that were called small/big blocks yet they were the same size

I have a friend of the family that had a turbo coupe back in the day and that thing was a beast!

 

He had it sitting on SVT shoes and rubber at that time and had a bunch of engine work and suspension work done to it

 

I swear he could take corners in that thing at 80 miles an hour LoL
