Having read a book on collectible cars and reading this big block Caddy was a Milestone car I bought it from a gas station. Big Block FWD. I painted it white myself
Pacific bought this for me and I took it all the way. All new stainless and paint this car was a head turner.
Fuel Injected 383 built by Lamar Walden, 5 speed Tremac Transmission, 4 wheel disc brakes, Air Ride Technologies front end. The works!
Replaced the wide tires on it with original trim. Rewired shoddy work, added amped up sound system, new carpeting and new instrument cluster. Replaced gas tank and new sending unit.
My father agreed to get a small bike no larger than 55cc. Once in
knoxville I bought a 750cc. Oops.
Ragged but serviceable. Sold it for a better MGB.
Bought in Nashville and had bad alternator. Drove at night to Knoxville with a flashlight held out the window. Electric Overdrive. Driving light later modified for optics experiment.
Bought for $100 with a bad engine I found a 283 and a cross flow radiator. Car was running for less than $2,000 investment.
Engine through a rod on a trip to Atlanta. Went through one winter without a top and soon made a wooden one. Eventuallly got a canvas one.
Traded jeep in for a warmer car. Someone hit me from behind and I used the money to buy a motorcycle.
Put Koni shocks, low bars and expansion chambers on this one. It was stolen and I bought Warren's H1-500.
Ported to Yoshamira specifications andexpansion chambers this bike would hit 12,000 rpm in blink transporting you from here to there nearly intantaneously. After getting married I was informed it had to go, so I traded it for a big stereo. It was stolen from the next owner.
I was first was given at 14 years old a junkyard engine to break down by Bill Stone. Grampa Claus then got a broken Jeepster to work on. This is not an original picture of the car. I eventually got it running but it ws not road worthy. I took off the fenders trying to make it a hod rod and have feel guilty enough to now repair another in my old age.
15 years old I was taught by Hunt Hogue how to rebuild a V8 from scratch and disassemble a manual transmission. Installed notched pistons and a Duntov cam. Couldn't wait to get my license.
Blown sideways by a wind gust ended up ina head on collision on Highway 411 from Atlanta to Knoxville. Oil drenched roads and grand national racing tires not meant for wet conditions didn't help. Retrieved from the wrecked Camero was the 327 engine, 4 speed transmission and bucket seats. These were stored in the woods until I found a car.
I bought this car without an engine (I had to pull the existing engine out). All the Camero gear went in it.
