Would a warm cup of man milk bring a smile to your face? Sorry, I just had to.

I'm with Biggun and Georgia, they know nice looking cars! I had a nice '66 Coronet 2dr HT my grandfather gave me in '88. I was never able to get it up here from Oregon though and it sat too long under a big fir down there, was sold as parts around '94.

I'm partial to El Caminos also. I'm lucky enough to own this one... or unlucky maybe since I'm spending so much restoring and building it:

But alas, just another "incorrect" blurb of useless nonsense.

It was lead. Hence the term "lead sled". They didnt have bondo.

And that "elenore" garbage from Gone in 60 Seconds is complete debauchery. There is nothing original about that car in the slightest. In the real world, that body-kitted, pieced-together, 17inch-rimmed monstrosity wouldnt bring a FRACTION of the price of an unmolested GT500.

i also love panel wagons. they are kind of hokey i know, but the lines get me.
my uncle owns one, a 1963 panel same as the one in the picture, except fire engine red with a 440 and a auto out of a 1969 charger. coils instead of leafs, ect. we call it the red machine. back when it was running it would bust wheelies everywhere.

I'm sure that's true but it still looks badass none the less. It's one of my favorite "older" cars. I'm usually a fan of the new high class looking stuff like that yellow ferrari we saw on Tudor

the original elenore wasn't a gt500. Look it up, it was a mach 1 fast back. That remake of gone in 60 seconds is a horrible remake.

This is another one of the cars from the era when Ford was tired of playing with Chevy's and Mopars and headed over to LeMans and Nuremberg.
