1950 Chevy step side pick up. Body and interior were mint, motor didn't run. It was given to me by my papaw, and we never could get it running, even with a complete tear down and rebuild, we were obviously missing something important.

First running truck, 1965 Ford F100. 300 straight six, 3 on the tree shifter, pulled it out of a field as per the landowner's request, "get it the hell out of here and you can have it, it's in my way" cost me a little over $20 for the registration and title transfer, and like 15 or so for a carb rebuild kit, and I was on the road. That truck was an adventure, the horn would blow when I hit the clutch, and I carried at least 4 gallons of brake fluid with me at all times.

First car was a 72 Nova. Paid $50 for it, dad went the other $50 hence paying half. I had a 350 small block, high rise edelbrock intake, 750 double dumper holley, (forget the lift and duration of the cam), headers...the works! built and ready to drop in the hole @ 16.

Dad said, "you have to wait to drop that 350 in until the original engine is wore out" me in my inexperienced youth thought, "I'll kill that old motor in no time" it had a 250 straight 6 in it.

MAN i miss my 78 T/A!! (as with all my speed demons) had the motor built and tuned, trany and rear end re-done and was in the process of getting the body and interior done when a 3/4 ton conversion van decided to not stop (never even touched the brakes) when i did to let an ambulance out in to traffic.

I gave up the speed and went to trucks then......had kids to pay for! My oldest to this day will give me hell about getting rid of "our race car."

I inherited grandma's 1978 Nova Custom. 4 door, wire wheel hub caps with white walls. Mint green in and out with vinyl seats. It was in great shape and had less than 40k on it. It had a 305 V8 and became the party car. Not a cool Nova, but it rocked.
