I'd like an old cop car any day. Mid 60's early 70's with the exception of an 80's Caprice Classic. Back then the factory's was making sure they was the hottest thing on the road. The Highway cop cars had the special big motors in them and branded them Interceptors. In the 50's I think if you opened the hood, you would see the word Interceptor painted on the firewall, and you knew you had the fastest car on the road. Not to many people knew but all the muscle cars back then, the factories made sure the cop cars was better. For example, if you had a 70 Chevelle SS with a 396, that cop car chasing you down on the highway was an Impala with a 454 HO Interceptor catching up to you, LOL. I'd love to have one of those cop cars the Blues Brothers drove in the movie, LOL.

My moms stepdad had a 60s Merc that was an interceptor way back when. It had a 2 speed rear end, big racing engine, and it was a boat. He said he never lost a race, from a roll or a standstill. I don't remember specifics, but I'll make sure to ask him about it next time I see him (he's in PA, I'm in Indiana). He had to sell it because a family member needed some money for something, worth a ton of money now though....

Oh. And Power Wagon.
I dunno, I like the look of the '79 Lil' Red Express trucks.
And oh yeah, '46 Dodge Power Wagon!! Thanks for the reminder Beal hahaha!!

What about the 78 Lil Red Express trucks? lol!
The body changed slightly.
I prefer the earlier body. Id like a short stepside bed 4x4 d100 with a /6.

There was an article in a Vintage Truck magazine about the Lil Red Express. "The last muscle car was a truck". Brand new in 78 they could beat a corvette on the drag strip. Article said there was some other cars it beat too, but I dont remember.

79 they got neutered.

Good looking trucks anyways..

It might be the '78s I was thinking of. I really like the 'ol Dodge A100 pickups, they look like the Ford Econoline trucks

They pretty much look about the same... I think theres an extra crease on the body, different hood and the back of the cab is more squared off. I dont know what changes are on the inside...

I wouldnt complain if I had one... ha. The "Warlock" truck would be darn cool too.

Nice! There's a mint looking '69 Coronet in my town, just sitting on someone's lawn. Hasn't moved in over 10 years. Poor old girl...

*thread revival* I figured I'd find you here mighty hahaha!
By '55 Chevy I assume you mean Bel Air? Those are nice! A guy in my area that passed away a few years back had a '55 Bel Air all done up with slicks on the back, roll cage and a 509 big block with a blower on it! You could always here him coming in to town! He also had a '68 (I think) COPO Camara.

My neighbor said he'd let me drive his 1969 mach 1 mustang to school once the weather warms up. It has the 351 windsor and a 4 speed top-loader. Pale yellow with the black stripes/hood. I'll get some pics when I finally drive it

Nice! My friend has a '73 Mach 1, after my high school graduation he took me for a spin in it. It has the 351 Cleveland. And it sure peeled out of of the school parking lot! Hahaha!

Yes, Sorry about that.

CraftsmanQuad19, that is super cool to have a neighbor like that! Be sure to park that thing out a bit. LOL

Finally re-found the image I originally saw on the internet that gave me my idea for my Sasquatch build.  It was the inspiration.

That 'ol Chevy looks awesme! I really like the mags on the front, with the black spokes behind the chrome ones. I bet that doesn't have a 283 in it anymore hahaha! If you made two fake four-barrels and an intake scoop for your build it would look pretty sweet.

One of my favorite muscle cars of the 50's

'56 Chrysler 300B. They had 331c.i. Hemis in them until '56 when they upped the displacement to 354c.i. That's why I like the '56s hahaha!

Yeah, they're a beautiful machine. Not too common though unfortunately hahaha. Yeah I do too! Too bad some of my favorite ones are kinda rare. My favorite car is a '66 Ford Fairlane with a 427 side-oiler. Super lightweight and just about 1 horse power per cubic inch at 425 horses from the factory. They made a small run of street 427 side oilers so they would be legal in the NHRA. I think they only made like 57 of them or something like that.
I also love the '59 Impala's, very nicely styled. Not super rare but they only made them with that style for one year.
The Tri-five Chevy Bel-Airs were nice, but I'd rather have a '62 Bel-Air with a giddy up giddy up giddy up 409 big block! Hahaha, I love old cars!!

Yeah, I love those Fairlanes. The '66 and '67s where pretty much the same for styling, but the tail lights on the '66s where different and I like them better.
