1962 Corvette, My High School RacerRead more
Well, I finally got tired of driving
my truck with no radio, A/C, or
cab lighting. Went driving down
Whittier Blvd and saw this
gorgeous car sitting on the lot.
Talked to the salesman, liked
what I heard, left my truck there
and drove the Vette to Anaheim
to show my dad. From there to
Anaheim Finance, at the time a 2
person office, saw the owner, and
he initially said no. Then I took
him outside to see the car, told
who my dad was and 20 minutes
later we paid the car dealer and
drove the Vette home.
I drove this to school every day
and realized this car was meant
for racing. I drove this car for a
couple of years and only sold it
because I was drafted and I knew
if it was at home, my younger
brother would destroy it and
himself along with it.
1966 Honda 450 Black BomberRead more
My brother told me that his girl
friend’s father was looking to sell
his motorcycle. So before I looked
at the bike, I rented a Yamaha 80
from a Shell gas station to see if I
wanted to be a biker.
I had so much fun on the little
80 I had to see the 450.
2 cylinder, 1 down 3 up 4 speed,
loud, and really good looking,
I bought it for $400.
Got a motorcycle license
endorsement, never did insure
it, and rode it around until I
went into the service. Left it
out for my brother who
consequently let it go swimming
in the Anaheim reservoir.
1967 Corvette, My Dream CarRead more
I went to the Corvette Swap
Meet in Pomona one year and
came away with a 1960 and a
1967 Stingray. The Stingray
was my all-time favorite car.
Sadly, it was totaled 30 days
after I bought it when a lady
ran a red light doing 80 mph
and T-boned me.
Story to follow later.

1972 Lincoln Continental Mark IVRead more
Car did not have a scratch on it.
His favorite car, of which he had
many. In fact, I bought 2 Corvairs
from this man. It had the
polyester type seats. Big 460
CID engine, ran fantastic. The
only thing I did not like is the
original shag carpet. Gave this
to my dad as he got older and
was hard for him to get in and
out of the Bronco. When he
passed away, I gave it to my
1974 Honda CB 550, Original Owner, Low Miles, Show Ready
1977 Mercury Cougar XR7, Very Low MileageRead more
A little over 56,000 miles. This is
my daily driver. Leather seats,
new vinyl top, original carpet.
Only a couple of small things to
do : Repaint the trunk emblem,
replace knobs on window cranks,
change one beauty ring on one
wheel, need 2 inner hub caps that
that came off on freeway, and
lastly change out engine hood
pad. Though not really needed,
the paint, due to having a semi-
metallic type of paint, has
faded a little and I will
probably repaint and pin
stripe the entire car. After that
we are ready for the car shows
1978 Mercury Cougar XR7, Fully LoadedRead more
Fantastic, Beautiful Car
Had the big 390 engine,
Sun roof, full power
color. I bought this from
my father and gave it to
my sister-in-law for her
first real car. That lasted
for a few months. She
seized it up and it sat
for a couple of years. Finally

Only 2,917 were equipped with
the high-output Pontiac T/A
6.6 W72 400 engine and t-tops
coupled with the four-speed
Borg Warner Super T-10
manual transmission. 1817
of those were not black & gold.

produced of Trans Ams or 1817
out of about 211,00 total Firebirds
produced. Estimated only slightly
around 200 were white.This was
one of them.
1989 Jeep Cherokee LaredoRead more
One of the best purchases we
made. Car had power windows,
door locks, the famous ‘Iron
Workhorse’ straight six
cylinder and select-trac 4 wheel
drive. Paint faded after 10 years
and I had it repainted. Gave
the car to my sister-in-law
and it went to over 300,000
miles before they sold it.
1995 Chrysler Lebaron ConvertableRead more
Xmas present for my wife. She
needed a car because my
daughters Talon died and we
let her use the Cherokee,
this came along and became
her favorite car. Full power
everywhere, v-6, etc.
Kept it for about 8 years until
we gave it to her sister, we
also gave the Jeep to a couple
of years before, and later the
1972 Lincoln, and others
before that. WOW !!
