Love the photos...No, I grew up in New Jersey a town called Rahway so famous we had the State Prison!
My 1961 Corvette had a 1964 Fuel Injected Motor minus the fuel injection! I spent about as much time working on it
as actually driving it. My Senior year I sold it and ordered a triple black 396 375HP Chevelle which imbedded Horse Power into my brain. Fun times!
Here is my Ferrari being assembled at the Factory! Check out that motor! View attachment 197016 View attachment 197017 View attachment 197018
Yep, if you ordered a 396/375 Chevelle brand-new, then you would've looked pretty silly/creepy cruising the JV parking lot at my high school with a 1961 Corvette in 1985 LOL...
I started driving in 1984, believe it or not, in a 1969 GT350. My dad was sidelining in buying/selling cars from the 50's and 60's, and the GT350 was a machine that he bought cheap, but failed to find a willing buyer.. Since "my car" (a 1969 Mach 1 that I purchased at age 14 for $1000 bucks) was still in a million pieces as I approached my 16th birthday, I helped my pops replace a rusty torque box in the Shelby, and we rebuilt the steering, and that became my ride.
My dad must've been nuts... LOL...
