I watched a movie a few days ago called 'Feeling Minnesota' with Keanu Reeves and Cameron Diaz {sigh} and in it they drove an awesome '66 Seven Litre, red with a white top. Boy, did it sound sweet!

But just when I was totally in lust with the thing, Reeves rolls it off a cliff!

MAN, I HATE IT WHEN THEY DO THAT!!!

At the Dawsonville cruise-in Saturday there was a nice, unmolested '64 Galaxie for sale. Black, 390/4-speed (obviously original) for $5000.

They are out there!

On the streets of Portland today I saw a big black ugly '60 four door parked on the side of the road. Still in use, and it looks like it hasn't seen a new part in decades...

Geez you guys need to get out of the artic circle.... There are lots of them down here still being used as daily drivers... Finding them in fields is not hard either. I saw one two days ago a 65 XL 500 (perfect) maw and paw kettle going down the road... When i mean perfect the words just escape me as to how nice it was...

You guys are going to hate me for this but, When i was 18 i found a 65 Thunderbolt Yes a real one.....She was behind a old house on the way wrong side of town for a little skinny white boy to be. ( no offence ) It had been there since the son had wrapped it around a pole in the sixtys. The mother would not let it go ( THEIR ONLY SON HAD DIED IN THE ACCIDENT). They would not sell her, so i kept in touch with them and one day the old guy called and wanted it gone. I guess it had been long enough. to make a long story shot i went and drug it on a trailer which was not easy....the rear pointed 90 degrees from the front. The impact was so great on the drivers side that it broke the 4 speed in half! yes the cast iron one....I pulled the 427 out and stuck it in my 66 Fairlane. the car punched a 10.92 on the first pass... i was contacted by a man who had a thunder bolt but the front clip was run in to a building at some time. i sold the car (what was left any ways) to him.
He brought it by 6 weeks later ( his T- bolt) fresh from the paint shop. The wrecked one went on to supply some one else with tags and #'s to regester another one up north some where. I know what you are saying... I have heard it over and over.. How could you take it apart you [email protected]#$$#[email protected]$#$$#@@... I was 18 and did not have that kind of money to build it back up.. Rene

Don't be too hard on yourself. Back then they didn't seem too important. When I think of the cars I passed up that were dirt cheap I cringe.

Saw a project 61 Starliner on the net yesterday but unfortunately today it?s gone and none of the links I had work for it. My Dad is getting tired of working on a 57 Chevy and is starting to look for one, even if it?s not exactly like the one he had. I don?t think there were many of them made!
