Funny you should say that, because that's exactly what I planned on doing. Can't beat a Hemi.

it started out as a stock, beat up 95 honda accord, power nothing. drove it for like a week then the brakes, clutch, radiator, and ac all went out within like a week span. then it got slammed, several sets of new wheels and tires, some shitty as fuck coilover sleeves, jack handle fender roll, more wheels and tires, some radios, some exhausts, etc... i miss that car. i got it with 3 torn axle boots, and after a few years of ignoring it and just driving, this started to happen... (just listen)

yeah, then the axle started locking up on the freeway... changed just one, drove it some more, then traded it.

My first car was a Fiat 600 spent a whole summer making a good car out of two salvaged ones, was eleven never drove it.
First car I could drive was a 52 stude starlight coupe. Never a dull moment in that ride.
First modified put the running gear and suspension from a 69 blazer 4X4 into a 65 jeep Wagoneer.

Damn that is a lot of cars in three years. One question, what is a Lincoln New Yorker and why did it have a 454? I'm guessing it was actually a Town Car with a 460?

My first ride was a '90 Ford Probe with the monster 2.2 four banger and auto trans. It actually was a pretty good car, and I even once showed a 305 powered Monte Carlo my tailights during a stoplight war.

I believe he was referring to a Chrysler New Yorker. Lincoln never made a New Yorker. Regardless, he must have found the car with an engine swap or he must have done it himself. It would have come with a 400 or a 440 HEMI if it were stock.

1965 Chevy Belair . 6 Cylinder and I bent a rod . Paid 35 dollars for it back in 1972 . 1966 Buick Skylark convertible , one of the first V6 engines , and had a ball with that car for a number of years . Paid 350 dollars for it . 8 track , suitcase full of music and hit the beaches . 1972 Plymouth Sport Fury , 318 and it was a tank !!! went all over the world ( new England ) in that car . gas was around 35 cents a gallon .

Lincoln made the Twon car and Chrysler made the new Yiorker . Both were large Tanks and Huge engines , . The New Yorker came with a 383 or a 440 . Not sure what the Lincoln came with but I think it was the 390 and the 428 ? maybe ? Again thannk god gas was so cheap . we used to spend 10 bucks on gas and ffill these wagons and 5 bucks on beer for the weekend !

No worries ...

They were great cars . I loved mine . I had so much fun driving everywhere . Today My ranger is nice but its not the same as too many cars on the road . Used to love cruisin Maine New Hampshire Vermont , a little up in New York . I wish I had some of my old cars today too as they would be classics . 72 barracude , 383 was one of my favorites . Also had a bunch of Dodge and 1960 Ford trucks .

Yeah you just had me scratching my head over that one as I knew there was never a Lincoln New Yorker. Don't worry about it, I was just curious. I've always loved those old land yachts. Back in high school one of my best friends had a '68 Olds 88 2 door with a 455. Kids at school liked to give him crap about it, but I always thought it was cool.
