My First Car
1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 convertible
I can't believe I found this photo! Red on red with white top. Cool! Not the actual car, but amazing to find one exactly like it!
My first car was a 66 Chevelle SS 396 convertible that I paid around $300 in 1971, just before my 16th birthday. I made the money working at my uncle's Texaco station on Kendall Drive in South Miami (by K-land and Baptist Hospital). The guy I bought it from was a customer and he would hang around the station, shootin the breeze (ahh.. the pre- facebook era!). He got it from his pal, a salesman at the local Chevy dealer, who had just taken it as a trade-in.
My current ride since 2001. 1970 Mercury Montego MX with 302 V8 and C4 auto trans, and original "competition orange" color just like it rolled out from the showroom floor. I added some period correct mods, like Keystone Kustomags, a CherryBomb, Sun tach and air shocks. Other mods include 550# springs in the rebuilt front for safety and lots more fun (ready for mulholland!)
1982 Dodge Ram D 50 Custom - parts chaser, bike hauler, total creampuff. IT'S GOTTA HEMI!! (no shit. look it up)

my old '84 Toyota LB (USA) - long gone
Looking for Toyota Pickup to Buy
Just like this one in the pics below, it must be long bed 4 cyl, bench seat, column shift, auto trans and cold AC with less than 150k mile in super clean, one owner condition (or as close as I can get). This is an '88, prefer a later model up to '92, looking to pay $2-3k. Lemme know if you see one of these! I was a day late and a buck short for this one lsted and sold for $2900.
