    Damn, I thought I was the only one left alive .who knew what a TR-3B was . I had a red one from 66-67. Got married, sold it and drove wife's 66 Mustang.( 6 cylinder / auto. )
    The Triumph was another one of those fun car that was a pain to own. No syncros in first gear, snap on top, leaked when it rained, jack was a joke, couldn't get parts, lousy dealer. But it sure was fun!!

    No, it's a daily driver and weekend mountain road toy. I've done a couple of track days, one at Carolina Motorsports Park and one at Virginia International Raceway, and I'd love to do more, but too expensive to do routinely.

    68 Camaro I paid $400 for from the auto hobby shop on base, sans engine. It took me a weekend to do a transplant 305 into it to get it running, but then became a big block transplant.

    My two favorite vehicles to date are my 1995 Trans Am (which I bought new in 1995 and still own) and the 2004 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that I sold to buy the 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that I have now. I still threaten the wife (pretty much on a daily basis hahahaha) that I will own a 1964 Chevelle.

    Actually I basically had an oil change after this. Sat upside down for a hour and all the oil ran into the cylinders. Pulled plugs, turned over (what a mess), filled it back up with oil and wheeled the rest of the day. Little smokey though haha

    It would definitely be my current car, a 2015 Mustang GT. This first shot is with a few guys at work who love their 'Stangs as well.

    Very, very nice! I sometimes hung-out with a guy back in High School who had a '57 Chevy that, aside from having the stock wheels and wheel-covers, was a near-dead-ringer for that one - outstanding car; later on, we went to the same college - located about 3 - 3-1/2 hours' drive from our hometown - and I would sometimes hitch a ride in it with him to go home for various holidays.

    I had a 66 Ford Galaxie in high school.
    2dr fastback
    390
    C6 auto
    Put a posi 4.56 rear in for a while.
    That was fun, but too much for the street.

    I helped my dad rebuild his 72 Ford Torino when I was a kid.
    351C HO
    C6 auto with a shift kit we installed
    Put a limited slip differential in 3.73 gears
    That was fun too.

    I've got a '69 Mach 1 428 Cobra Jet, fully restored, and a mildly modified '14 GT500 with the TP/PP upgrades.

    I used to own a '00 Mustang GT that had been completed rebuilt as a drag car. It made 1190rwhp with a 334ci SOHC setup, fed by a 91mm turbo. It was pretty cool but not very fun to drive on the street.
