Sixties Muscle — My first car, I still miss it. Maybe I will replace it one day. I love this car so much my dad and I restored it. It was a Futura model with a 289 V8 with and automatic trans. I loved just droping the top and cruising listing to the dual exhaust rumble along with the power from the V8, it was hard to keep tires on it. LOL

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Classic convertible with a V8 whats not to love.

Cons: Consumed lots of fuel and no power options. lol

My 1965 Ford Falcon — Car was a very comfy ride even as low as it was, It was a nice cruisey car. It stood out more then most cars on the road and was a big head turner. It was lowered 3 1/2 inches and was painted blue with a white roof. It had a white interior.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It just turned heads driving it.

Cons: Nothing

Sweet Ride For The Retro Look — These cars last forever. Their engines (specifically the 200cu) just keep going and going. The only thing to ever be concerned with is the fact that it tops out at about 70 mph, and on some SoCal freeways, that could actually be a dangerous thing. But, if you're into cruising, this car definitely can get the looks if you spend the time to do it right.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a great car for southern California cruising.  My personal opinion is that this body style is the best for the Falcon.

Cons: Taking the rear tires off is a pain if you don't have a high enough jack, there isn't a ton of leg room for someone taller than me (6' 2"), especially not in the back seat, but driving it is perfectly at the right place.

W O W — the styling is pure '60's but comfortable on long drives. Some of the parts can be hard to find such as gas cap,etc. Six cylinder good on gas, but not as peppy as an eight. LOVE IT. It's SWEET

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: head turner

Cons: no air conditioning

'65 Ford — Most folks that know me know that my 1965 Ford Falcon is my pride and joy. This car survived a lot of dumb stuff we did as teenagers, and is now sitting quietly waiting for $$$ to undertake some dramatic repairs....I still Love the Falcon.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Good Lookin' non-competerized and paid off.

Cons: Out dated suspension....but that is what makes it sooo fun

Good Reliable Transportation And Is A Classic Automobile. — Peppy inline 6 cylinder. Three speed manual transmission. Good fuel economy. Build quality was good. Appearance was boxy but cute. It was my first car, so I thought it was the best car in the whole wide world. I daydreamed of how I would customize it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good fuel economy

Cons: none

I Got To Build Another One Like It. — This was one of the funnest cars I have ever owned. any time you have a light weight car with a V8 in it your going to have a fun car to drive. Add to that a small block Ford, this car had a 289cid, Cyclone headers .487/.511 lift, 298/300 duration Solid lifter cam, Holley 600cfm carburetor sitting on top a single plane manifold, full roller rocker arms, ported 351W heads with 1.90 and 1.60 valves. Hurst Shifted Toploader 4 speed, 9" 28 spline, 2 spider gear Equal-Lok limited slip rear axle, 4.11:1 gears. Now this car has 2-3 time more power then it had stock., you had to be careful accelerating away from a stoplight, traction was a big problem with this car. This car was Scary fast.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fast, fun to drive, un real performance

Cons: Cops love and hate it, traction
