The Good Old Days - Bowtie Obsession


Post by desertrefugee »

In my case, the good ole days were not really so long ago. This photo is from 2010. The year before I was divorced. I sold the '66 Elky and she got the Chevelle. Long story, don't ask. Still sore over that one. I restored that car from the frame up in the early 90's. Won a few trophies with it. Now it's hers.

<sniff> Truth is, I liked the Elky better. That one was my daily driver for six years. 400SB/TH400/Vintage Air/Pearl White/Blue vinyl interior (OEM repop).

These days, my budget is smaller and I do motorcycles. I lost my mojo on cars. I blame her! I know it's a rotten photo, but it's the only one I have with both of them in the same shot.

Great cars! Get back in the groove! You can play with cars, and bikes, and boats, and tractors, and a host of other stuff. Don't have to spend a fortune! Get a hoopty, and play with it! It's fun to rotate between interests!
