I had to do a double take on that 1969 Mustang. My uncle that I mentioned earlier that had the bikes also still has his '69 Boss 429 Mustang that he bought brand new and drove out of the showroom himself.During the mid 80's I was in college in a small town in central Missouri. Cruising was part of our culture. I had a 1977 BMW 530i sedan with a great stereo, which was reliable and rode nice, so we took that for the longer road trips 100+ miles to go to Columbia or St. Louis to party. Mine was Gun Metal Gray
My buddy Dave had a ~72 Cutlass 2 door which was a cool car, but his stereo sucked balls and he was "Classic Rock" fan so we usually jammed Styx, REO, etc.
My buddy Robert had some huge 70's muscle type car with a killer stereo and we both liked the hard rock/metal - I can remember jamming Ratt "out of the Cellar" at least weekly. Robert and I would cruise the streets almost daily. It looked similar to this, but he had huge back tires.
I had one other buddy Jim who had a hopped up 69 Mustang (kind of like the one below, but with a lot of primer). I think it had an AM radio at best, but that car could run.

My car cruisin’ days were in the 70’s . I had a 68’ Cutlass Supreme but the best times were when my Pops would let me drive his 65’ Buick Wildcat , the old man loved that car and so did I ! Rag top with 445 cubic inches and 400 turbo tranny , she would roll ! Style and power !
Most millennials love rap and women with tattoos. Can we stop the generalizations? And the women with class thing is just a very tasteless thing to say IMO.Most millennials romanticize the 80's, I'm probably worse. I just like good music that's not rap and women with class that don't have 100 tattoos.
It was a 401 c.i. "nailhead V8- 325 hp 445 foot # of torque445 Wildcat refers to the torque, I believe it's a 410ci... Buick did that back then so it's easy to confuse.
It was fun to drive ! First new car my father ever bought . He was born in the depression era so buying a new car was a Big Deal .It was a 401 c.i. "nailhead V8- 325 hp 445 foot # of torque
they also offered a "Wildcat 465" which was a 425 c.i. (same block) with 340 HP and 465 foot # of torque
my dad (also a depression kid) always drove Electras- I remember his '68, which was the first year with the new engine- a 430 c.i. with bigger valves and 360hp- it was more power with better mileage than the old nailheads. Sadly, a couple of years later the smog engines arrived, and performance went the way of the dodo.It was fun to drive ! First new car my father ever bought .
