So, my first love was a real labor of love - 1972 Camaro - did a ground up rebuild while I was in the Navy. Painted it myself and built the 327 small block. Never got to run it at the track (not one in the area), but I did a good bit of late night trolling at the local spots... sold it when I got out of the Navy for a decent price.

Years later, I bought the last WS6 Trans Am they made - 2002... and proceeded to turn it into a street driven strip brawler. Had a full cage put in it, lots of suspension parts, built a 408 stroker, did all own computer tuning, and stuck a 250hp hit of nitrous on it... Ran a best of 9.43 at 145mph in the quarter on DOT tires and through the mufflers...

Know what you are feeling. 3 years ago I sold my Jeep Pickup that I have had since 1978, 3/4 ton 4x4. was a sad day to see it go.

That was a beautiful mistress, and it must have been really tough to part with her. But look at it this way: you no longer have Mistress #1 (your Pony), but you still have Mistress #2 (your Eagle)!

A camping trip and an adult beverage will help ease the heartbreak!

The best part for those of us all holding onto our old cars is gas is getting cheaper again. More Burnouts...

Wow Mustang she's beautiful, and kudos to your better half for allowing you to share your affection all these years! Good luck in the mountains, snow flurries and freezing temp weekend before last, shirt sleeves and in the 70's last weekend. Prepare for both!

Thanks for the extra pics. So sorry you had to let her go. Back in the day, after getting out of the army ( '75 ), a friend & I would hunt for Boss 302s that needed a little TLC. Spiff them up & flip 'em. I sure wish I still had a few of those today.

Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
