2170 in U.K.
« on: May 06, 2018, 04:33:40 PM »
Took my old car, 2170 with its tired paint and aging good looks out today  and drove two hours round trip to a little breakfast meet early this AM

The highway had traffic issues and my satnav chucked me on backroads the whole way

I pushed the car a bit and it responded with surefootedness and a great sound track

I am always amazed at how a fifty plus year old car can bring a smile to my face

Hope your all driving your Mustangs and Shelbys.

Hi Pete, happy for you that you had a fine ride today. I hope you enjoyed breakfast too. How about a photo of you with 2170. Denny

With the 65 wheels on the trailer was delivery to the US docks
With the 65 Wheels on my lawn is the first week I had it
With the original wheels is a while later
It now has Torque thrusts on it.

Cheers Folks,

Peter

Beauty!
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Yea to you and 2170...

Les 6S1348
...found 6S1348 after a full year of searching. It was in a garage I passed every day on the way to work. I looked at cars in front yards, back yards, storage garages, in fields, and under trees. I found a 65 that had hit a tree and was bent all the way to the back...
