    Not mine, but pretty close:

    Sorry, typo on my part, mine was 1970 Roadrunner, not the '69 and picture is a 1970 Roadrunner....

    I've made worse typos ...

    I also had the '69 GTX - almost the twin of my Roadrunner ... but with a true psychedelic paint job.

    I always loved how they would rise up in the back coming off the line. Actually stretched the 50 series tires enough that you felt it. Had to put screws through the rims into the bead to keep the tire from spinning on the rims.
    Speaking of the stars: " "To whom can you liken me to make me his equal?” says the Holy One.' “Lift up your eyes to heaven and see. who has created these things? It is the One who brings out their army by number; HE calls them all by name. Because of his vast dynamic energy and his awe-inspiring power, not one of them is missing." " --- Isaiah 40:25,26

    Can't remember how much it cost me back then , maybe 60 dollars in 78 but I can not imagine the price now, if you could find one... It was long and almost went to the trunk, was not suppose to remove it but had rust on the outer edges in under the trim.. so I got the ok to remove and then she cracked on the corner...I do remember painting the Cuda Black, I see yours has the gold strip, seems I did the one in White...
    After each paint job they would pay up and part of the bill was to do a me a little burn out, since most were younger many would out do themselves. Can remember the cuda burn out I do remember a 67 mustang, 427, or 428..Holman Moddy car....Wow, what a smoker...painted it that slim green color, but it was metallic at least..

    I wish I had some pictures of a car a friend of mine built. He took a 350 Chevy engine, milled the heads at an angle. He had a 14.? to 1 compression ratio. He put that monster into a little Maverick. It wouldn't stand the torque, of course. He had to reinforce a lot of the frame and such before he could 'put his foot in it'. He worked at a specialty auto repair shop. They specialized in beefing up the engines, trannies, and bodies for hotrods. He was a whiz at beefing up the computers for more power and/or mileage. The last I saw him, the engine was on an engine stand. He said he was through with the Maverick, and was looking for a different body for the engine. He had several trophies from several different drag strips with the little Maverick. He was always looking for something different; something that no one else had tried.

    That's the best part, building something no one else has. Back in high school I had a 1974 Datsun 620 pick up lil hustler edition with a 4x4 conversion using a dana 30 front axle, Dana 18 transfer case with a divorce kit. And using a early '80s five speed transmission, stock rear end and stock l20b four cylinder. These trucks were only offered in two wheel drive. I wish I never sold it...
    Similar to this one...

    I'll play.. Various stuff I've owned and built from scratch other than the Monte SS. That was pretty nice when I bought it. The Blue 67 Camaro is my current ride. 355 smallblock built to Nascar late model specs, Muncie 4 speed, 12 bolt rear, 4 wheel disc brakes with WIlwood Aluminum calipers, etc. The engine in the Camaro is actually the spare from the Yellow & Orange Late Model.

    Is the Monte Carlo SS stock? How about the T/A?
    Cool rides!
    I had a '75 factory V8 Monza....no pics though.







    Freedom is something that dies unless it's used.


    Time is like a river. You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of your life.

    A student said to his master, "You teach me fighting, but you talk about peace. How do you reconcile the two?"
    The master replied, "It is better to be a warrior in a garden, than to be a gardener in a war."

    Speaking of building something different from others, in 1961, I worked with a guy that had a little 1954 6-cylinder Ford. He did just about everything that could be done to an engine at that time. No blower or such, but had best pistons, rods, cam, etc. that could be had at that time. It was 'hot' for a 6 cylinder! He later traded it in on a new 'Vet.
