Does a 1995 F-150 Extended cab count? It was my daily driver until I bought my F-250 to pull the Airstream in 2005. I just have a hard time letting go since it has been such a great truck. I drove it to work every day last week and it was such a great nastalgic trip each day. But I really need to pass it along to someone who can keep her active and enjoy her as much as I have.

Melody Ranch - what a cool car - and the beach isn't going to go away so when the time is right you can just pull your car out of the hangar and start truly enjoying it. What's really neat is that it's always been considered a neat car by many, not one that suddenly is neat just because it's survived a long time. Enjoy it, maybe nows the time to consider a beach trip when the weather is good (it's raining here).

What does it have for power? It looks fast just sitting on the trailer.... I love the sound of one when it's across the lake, late in the evening, as someone is buzzing home and I'm sitting out under my awning, a mug of tea in hand, enjoying the night air.

Cool pics and stories... bring on the Classics. That Citroen was ahead of it's time. Watched the speed chanel last night and they showed a V8 Citroen that was featured at the SEMA show in Vegas.

Safari 57... you are correct. Sold my Pacer over 10 years ago and bought a Coleman Pop up so we could get back into RVing. The Pacer is still in the area here and I get to see it from time to time at the local Cruise nights.
Tell your buddy to hold his head high. Back in the early 70's I ran my 1970 AMX a number of times at the local drag strip (Toronto International). The AMX never lost a race.

In the past week I have seen mention of '40 Cadillacs, '60 Cadillacs, '62 Impala, Harley Davidsons, '57 Safari Wagons, and many more. I've seen NorCal Bambi's '68 Ford TV and scotandlilly's '68 International (beautiful), and recently a thread on a really nice C10 Chevy pickup. I know MYOUNG has a very nice Porsche. It seems llike many of us are into our vehicles. I'm just wondering what else is out there. I've been hooked on cars since before I was old enough to drive one. Now, among the fleet I have several Chevys: '55 210 post, '55 handyman wagon, '55 Nomad, and '64 Impala convertible. The thing that is the best about our AS is that Deb is just as excited about it as I am. So, what other cars/bikes/trucks are you folks so proud of? I'll bet there are some beauties. Pictures would be nice. I will even try to figure out how to post mine.
While traveling this summer I ran across a couple of car shows, one in Salida, CO and another in Flippin, AR. For the first time I did had my camera available.
