What about cars? I admire all kinds of cars, but particularly love hot rods. It may be another link to my youth, but my goal in the next couple of years is to buy or build the perfect rod to enjoy during my retirement years.
My first was a 1940 Ford Coupe with a Chrysler C300 and 39 Packard transmission. Had her diego’d. When I shifted into 2nd at 90mph I could smoke her tires.
In 1955 Chrysler dropped a dual-carbed 331ci Hemi –the most powerful production V-8 engine of its day — into a two door Chrysler Windsor. This was arguably the first American musclecar.
It was on the sands of Daytona Beach in 1955 that a C300 posted a 127.580 mph two way average in the flying mile, more than 7 mph faster than its nearest competitor.
