Pictures of Muscle cars and
Remember the first time you floored it?
I had just bought THE CAR in the summer of 69 and my rule for new
cars was to hit 100 as soon as possible. So I came out of the dealer
and went up the ramp io Hwy 10. Hit the gas and she burned rubber.
As I came off the
entrance ramp. The guy a quarter mile down the
road heard me and looked up in his mirror, then made a right turn
on the freeway into the right hand lane and I sort of passed him.
He looked really angry. But, the speedometer only said 75. As I
continued to hold her down it stayed there.
Telephone poles began looking like a picket
fence. As I backed her down the needle finally
dropped. The needle was sticking at top dead
center. Early models had horizontal speedometers. A quick trip back to the dealer and a
minor adjustment with a wire cutter fixed that.
The next time I came off the ramp I understood
why He had given me such a dirty look as I pasted
him. The second time at about the same place I was doing 130 mph' at about 3/4 throttle. The rest is history.
We attend car shows and events to photograph the street rods, hotrods and collector and classic muscle cars you see in the HubcapGT Blog.
We add new pictures and information on a regular basis, so come back often. My little brother takes the pictures. Bear in mind his idea of a great car is a 1951 Hudson Hornet or a 1925 Kissel. My taste runs to a 409 Chevy or a Cammer Mustang (which I looked at and almost bought new). But since my first car was a 1946 Doge, I bought THE CAR.
