My dream car/truck


#32

This one is also a dream but I don’t see a chance of owning one ever:


#33

Something like a 67 Jag? Man that’s a pricey thing!!

Always liked these little oddballs.


#34

Close. It’s a 68’

But lemme drag out a photo of me with an absolute classic that is owned by my family and I drove two years ago :slight_smile:

That is me, and the car is of course a 1969 Charger


#36

No fair. I was about to guess.


#37

That specific charger was purchased in 1969 by my wifes uncles father in Pittsburgh, PA. It’s been in the family ever since. 100% original. Paint was re-done a few times. Only 55k miles on the meter.Today its owned by my wifes cousin and it relocated to Montreal Canada

Is it weird that I love the giant radiator it took to keep that power plant cool? :crazy_face: :laughing:


#40

And this is the small block. Imagine the radiator on the big block version :slight_smile:


#41

No love for the Night Runner? How about if I guilt you into it… 'Tis mine…


#42

Don’t recall seeing one IRL, and that may just be a bad angle… But it looks like “just another Dodge” in that pic.
But if it lights your spark plugs, who am I to judge? Oh wait! :laughing:

It is just another Dodge, like any Challenger or Charger or Viper, I guess. Man, rip a fella’s heart out why don’t ya. :disappointed_relieved:

You guys would love it around here classic car wise. I’m not far from Auburn Indiana where the Kruse Auctions are/were held. Classics from Auburn - Cord - Duesenberg on up to the ones we’re listing here. Auburn has a really nice car museum and so does the auction grounds. Everything…some selling for millions.


#45

Yeah, but to Sparky they would be “just another Cord”.


#46

Pffbbt.

The shot you posted was just a bad angle.

When you get a decent shot, it’s actually a fairly sharp looking vehicle!

:laughing: :laughing: :laughing:


#47

Tryna make up, I see… :sunglasses:


#48

It occurred to me that being international some may have never seen or heard of an Auburn, or Cord, or Duesenberg. So…


#49

Not sure if I ever knew the name for the Auburn, but definitely remember the car!

The Duesenberg is definitely a bad ass classic! And the Cord looks like it could have come out of the same factory! I remember playing with the Hot Wheels version waaaaaaay back when. chuckles

The Auburn and Cord did basically come out of the same factory. Its now the museum in Auburn IN. My 96 year old mother lives there. The annual festival and classic car auction are awesome. :grin:

Here’s a link to festival photos where I found the above. https://www.flickr.com/photos/sjb4photos/sets/72157646604301810
