Cars have been a big part of my families life. We have always had at least 1 muscle car in the family and most of the time many.
I was brought up with Mopars in the driveway in my teens. This is the brand I own and choose to follow. I admire and respect many other muscle cars and would have a barn full of all brands if I had the means to do it.
Who doesn't like a Vette or a Mustang? How about a 55-57 Chevy? I would like to have an old 55 Gasser. How about a Willys? Wow. I saw two bad ass 40 Willy's at the Woodward Dream Cruise this year traveling together. You could hear them coming for blocks away. This is over all the other muscle that was bumper to bumper. Way cool rides.
I have decided to put my time and energy into writing and documenting my passion for all things muscle car. I hope you enjoy the site and maybe even contribute. Start your own blog here. Once again we welcome all brands. So don't be shy because I am a Mopar owner. I do love horsepower and can't get enough of it!
He took he car apart for some reason that I don't recall and parked it in his barn. I ran into him in the late 80's and found out he still had the car. No, not for sale..going to rebuild it someday. You've heard it before.
Now, this barn is only 5 miles from where I live. So, once in awhile I would drive by (not a road I normally travel) hoping to get a glimpse of the purple Challenger. The barn doors were always closed. I never saw the car again. In the late 90's I drove by (some dreams never go away) and the barn was gone.
Talk about a final ending..but wait..maybe he just moved the car. Many years have gone by and it has been probably 20 years since I saw my classmate, but his wife now works at the bank I do business with. I see her every Thursday. I think it's time to find out what really happened with that 70 Challenger T/A
Here is a heartbreaker pic of a Challenger that was kept in a barn a little too long. Yep, part of the barn came down on this original owner car. You can see on the left another top that he has to repair the car. Hopefully this Challenger will live on.
Got any barn stories??
