Can we get a Chevelle to drive in FB in a future patch maybe?
When I was seventeen, my first car was a 1968 Malibu. Light blue with dark blue stripes going up the hood and down the trunk. and it had an 8-track player in it. It handled like Krap and the drum brakes were bad, but it sure looked good!
I was going down the road in the rain less than a year after I got it, and some guy in a Cadillac pulled out in front of me and it was totalled. It was his fault and I got the six hundred bucks back from the insurance that I paid for the car. But I was never able to buy another one as nice with that much cash. I know the one in the pics is a 69', but that just brought back memories. S!

Cool Chevies!

I never had another Chevelle. But after I totalled mine, when I was eighteen I got a 1963 Chevy BelAir two door. It had a 350 with headers and a real 4:56 posi rearend. It used to do a hundred flat at the end of the quarter, which was pretty good for something that was a daily driver.
Shortly after I got the 63' I was racing a high school buddy who had a 66SS396 from a pig roast,down a country dirt road I did not know, to a bar, at night. I did not know the road came to a T. I lost it going real fast and went over a small creek and then backwards through a cornfield for quite a ways. Going through the creek I had ripped the steering arm off the backing plate and spindle on the drivers side of the car. Luckily a drunk with a Ford pickup towed me miles back to the pig-roast. He had to tow me backwards becuase that is the only way I had any steering at all. He got going too fast and the car started whipping back and forth across both lanes wildly while I was screaming at the top of my lungs.
Way back in the woods at the pig roast was a Junk 64' Impala. Some buddies went to work getting the part off the Impala while I went to work on the Bel Air. Now this pig roast was one I would rather not have been at under any other circumstances. The family's farm that had it were really strange.
One was an mentally challenged adult noted for peeping Tom activities in the area. The others had shot bullets into nieghbors houses and burned their own house down when their parents went on vacation throwing Molotov cocktails at the ******ed brothers bedroom window. They also shot all their hound dogs and threw them on a nieghbors porch that had complained about them running loose.(necessary background).
In the dark in the wee hours of the morning whilst under my BelAir. I was suddenly aware of one of these "poeple" and his equally interesting friend talking about how I had the nicest legs at the roast. Part of my legs were all that was sticking out from under the car. Next thing I know, these two gentlemen each had one of my legs trying to get me out from under the BelAir to do things to me I would rather not even imagine. I held onto parts of the undercarriage of the BelAir with all my might while screaming for any help I could get. They couldn't get me out from under the car though they tried more than once.
I stayed under it until my buddies came back to that part of the property with the part, gave it to me and I had it installed. I was scared $hitless. I had gone to the pig roast initially at ten P.M. Now it was dawn and the car was finished. I got into it and got the hell out of there, went home and went to bed as the sun was coming up fast. That was in 1980. A friend of mine still has that car to this day. S!

Plymouth did make the Barracuda but it was one of the original hatchbacks. It also was the first car purpose-made to do wheelies at the drag strip. It was called "Hemi Under Glass" as the engine was in the back seat area. The builder went on to make the famous wheel-stander "Little Red Wagon", a Dodge van that was factory made into a pickup.

Plymouth did make a 'Supercar'....the Road Runner. It was nearly identical to the Charger Daytona. The only reason these amazing cars hit the street was NASCAR's rule at the time that to race a car it had to be "stock", that is availalbe to the general public. 500 of both the Charger Daytona and Road Runner were made and sold to the general public. The major differences between the 'public' cars and the race machines was the windshield was thin and had a chrome surround rather than being stuck in with putty, (wind pressure basically kept it in place), a softer suspension, (still tight even by todays standards), a detuned engine, (almost any mechanic could easily tune it up into a 160MPH demon), and a standard interior. How do I know all this? One, I ws a kid at the time and loved racing, and two, I owned both a Barracuda and a Charger Daytona. The Charger almost cost me my driving license for life. It was way too fast and I liked that. I finally smartend up before losing my license or my life.

And those are some beautiful Chevys mate!

George Hurst built the Hemi under Glass. Plymouth didn't build it that way http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The Plymouth Road Runner was never the Plymouth version of the Charger Daytona.

The Plymouth version of the Charger Daytona was the SuperBird, not the Road Runner. There was a cartoon graphic of the cartoon Road Runner ON the Superbird, however.

The Charger Daytona was originally a 1969 1/2 model, the Superbird was originally a 1970 model

The actual majot change to the Daytonas and Superbirds wasn't really the backlight, although was changed. Incidentally, the Charger 500 also had the flush backlight

The major change on the street cars compared to the NASCAR race models was the rear facing "scoop" on each front fender. On the race car, these were needed for tire clearance because of the race suspension and other equipment. On the street cars, the front tires were nowhere near the tops of the frnders, so dummy 'scoops' were added. It is a common myth that these scoops were for brake ventilation.

That GS is beautiful!

It's a 1971 model, though. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif 1970 front bumper dips down in the middle and has a blackout treatment on the grille, with no 'lower grilles' in the bumper at all. I can't access photobucket from work, but I have a pic of my '70 from the front that I'll post later on.

My car used to be Fire Red too. I really liked it, but the police pulled me over like clockwork. If anything, I drive faster now than I did when the car was red, but since I had it painted blue, I haven't been pulled over once! It's true that red cars get pulled over more, I guess.

I had a buddy with a '69 442 with a 455. that thing was scary fast. It was the fastest car I'd ever been in until I went for a ride in an NSX.

Oh-
I also found out what was wrong with my 462 (Buick 455 bored 0.030" over). "I" didn't break it after all!

All the main and rod bearings got wiped out, though. But it was because the oil filter failed and bits of the filter element clogged up my pickup screen and starved the engine for oil!
