    Here's my old baby.
    1965 Stang.
    Found her in a farmers field collecting rust. Bought it for $650 CDN.
    Added a few MODS to her :)
    Came with an inline 6, but I put a stock 302 in her.
    Upgraded the suspension, highback buckets, hood scoop, cut out the rust, and what seemed like endless bodywork.
    Took 2 years to complete, shame I sold it a while back.

    i think i destroyed it hahaXD

    it started smelling pretty much after 3weeks of hard use, i've never owned an old car before, so i did not know how much it could take i guess.

    and there is small holes in the exhaust, prob rust i think, will be ordering a new one next year, no need to hurry atm.
    but damn that think is quick, compared to how old it is, and there is actually ALOT of space inside, i'm about 178cm tall and i can sit with my leggs stretched all out and there is still quite some room on the backseat,

    Are the parts expensive/rare considering the age of the car?

    This is my 1971 Z2/8, the pics were taken in 1987 after it was resurrected from basket case status. The Z has seen its share of street and strip usage over the years and is currently undergoing a very slow restoration due to time and funds.

    This was my ride in high school back in 1978 it’s a 1967 Chevy II with a 327 and a Muncie 4 speed. My step mother took the picture with my little sister next to the car.

    That was my 1979 Z2/8 in the garage, it was getting a new paint job.
    I'll try to find some pics of it and post them.

    I'm not the biggest fan of classic cars but I have to say, the ones here are nice! And they all look really expensive like the Stingray and the 911 lol

    Here are my offerings to the thread. Both vehicles were saved from the scrap heap and restored to their full glory again. The Plymouth restore is still ongoing, it's been a 10 year project. (It's hard to get parts for American cars in South Africa :p ).

    The Land Rover is finished. It was a 7 month strip down and rebuild. Although I am still making adjustments here and there. Frikken carbs :(

    My fathers:
    1933 Plymouth

    I'll need to dig up some before pics to show you what they started out as. This Plymouth pic is kind of old. You'll notice the hood ornament is missing and the hooter trumpets are also not there.

    My Father-in-laws 1965 Series IIa Land Rover.

    Sheesh, I've never worked as hard on a project vehicle as I did on this Land Rover. From all the scrap yard dumpster diving to the sheer lifting of the parts. It was a long haul.

    Happy with the results on both cars though :D

    Very nice incredible rides everyone!
    Hats off to all the dedication!!!!

    My son in law has an uncle here in the U.S.A. with a true Porsche 917 sitting in his house.
    He said when he was young, he got a ride and it was THE most scarcest!

    Honestly, it had to be dismantled due to extreme tax's.
    So it's much safer inside the house away from prying eye's!

    The son in law is going to get me more info, but his dad told me it is a true LeMans 917 flat 12
    didnt know which model or serial off hand.

    I asked the boy to have his uncle get me some info on his car.
