'72 Duster in this same color. MIne had a vinyl top though. Totally stock and in excellent condition. Ran it into a telephone pole.

My first car was a 70 Plymouth Roadrunner.
There have been chevelles, oldsmobiles, pontiacs, Mustangs and then back to Mopar with my 17 Challenger.
I got to drive a pantera once and a supercharged vette.

I would say that the Pantera was one of the two coolest cars that I ever drove. I had to do a brake job on it for a customer of the shop I worked in at the time so I had to do the road test. Poor me.
The second of the coolest cars that I ever drove is my uncle's 1969 Boss 429 Mustang. Yes, it is an original 1969 Boss and not a modded Mustang. It was the first car he bought new a day after he returned from Vietnam.

Coolest that I ever owned...either my 1981 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme or my 1972 Lotus Europa Special.

An actual military version of a Hummer, not that watered down mammy van they sold to the public.

We used to off-road every winter at Ocotillo Wells and got in tight with the rangers there who showed us low to operate it and let us drive it in the washes and up the dunes.

Those things are awesome!

In the 80s, one of my father's friends tried to sell me his '67 HO vette. He'd bought it new and it had all the bells and whistles. I drove the beast, nearly killed myself in a sharp S-curve...and declined the purchase.

He had forgotten to tell me it still had studded winter tires on it...

Heck, I wasn't making enough money to feed it.

I've never owned a cool car. I have a cool truck though: 1969 Chevy C10 "Custom", 396, Auto, Air, PS but no power brakes. 1585328140977_Beauty shot.jpg
