Which car was your favorite?


Mine was Wooderson's 1970 Chevelle SS 454, that car is so cool and badass!

The deuce coupe (s.p.?) from American Graffiti lurking in the background.

The 454 is still one of my top dream cars.

I wish the 454 came out a little earlier, too bad it came out right at the end of the muscle car era and 1970 was the only year they were available with the high compression motor's.

Wooderson's is definitely the sweetest, but there are some nice ones in the film that are easy to sleep on.

1. O'Bannion's Duster. You're not supposed to like him much, but man, if that thing had a paint job.

2. Darla's half ton. I know there are more "manly" trucks in the movie, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't love this truck.

3. Coach Conrad's little Bronco. One of the first vehicles I ever owned; soft spot for Broncos.

I do love the first generation Ford Bronco's a lot although I would want mine to have bigger tires so I can take it off roading.

reply

No doubt. I was about 18-19 when I used to go off roading, or muddin' as it's often referred to around here, with a friend who originally owned the Bronco. We went maybe 3 or 4 times, and I had to buy it from him. First thing I did was buy a set of huge, brand new tires.

reply

I will timidly opine that people who go muddin' are usually defacing and ruining some area that wasn't meant for vehicles. You own that field? Go muddin' all you want. The look at it next year and see how ugly it is.

The GTO for sure.

Volkswagen Beetle.

Ford Bronco

Man, I seen that thing in a comic book. $2.95. Right next to the Sea Monkeys.

reply

I'm right there with ya. Although that GTO was pretty sweet too. Love those late 60's/early 70's muscle cars!

While Clint's car was a Malaise era 1974 Pontiac Trans Am but it did have the 455 SD motor which cranked out 290bhp (most big block engines of that year were barely cranking out 200bhp).
