This is my 1969 Corvette Stingray.

Over the winter I had the engine stroked to 496 and replaced the M20 with a M22W.

I think 69 is my favorite year.
Agree. '69 Camaros, Chevelles, Mustangs, GTOs, Firebirds, Roadrunners, GTXs, 'Cudas... just to name a few.

I had a Ford Maverick in May of 2009 - my 1st new car - $2600 out the door with a 200 CID engine Automatic and A/C and B F Goodrich radial tires. White like the one in this picture at the top with the wheel covers on the bottom car. I wanted a Chevelle or a Cutlass but could not afford the insurance on them. The Maverick was $125/year with collision. The small block V8 would have jumped me to a $250/year cost.

I had a 1975 Vette T-top - was $5700 but it seem to rain every day that I had it and the stupid T-top leaked water on the console and the dealer made it worse every time they tried to fix the leak. I only kept it for 3 months - at 6'5" if was hard to get in and out of and I got a 75 Monte Carlo to replace it. I went thru a lot of cars before marriage ended my funding for lots of new cars.

Man, somehow I completely forgot all about the Mavericks. My only explanation - getting old.

I am not there yet, but my wife's grandmother, who was 90, would say, "I am starting to get old." She lived to 99 and drove an old Ford Granada.

Really, the mid to late 60's was a great time for the big three and sweet V8s. I remember my dad had a '63 VW beetle that I was driving in the late 60s while I dreamed of 396/427 Super Sport Chevelles and 427ci/425hp tri-power Vettes and 428 Cobra Jets with shaker hoods and 440 Sixpack GTXs and 426 hemi Chargers. Ah yes. The good old days!

Unfortunately for me my High school years were the late 80's. So 150HP sports cars were it.

Corvette, Mustang and Camaro were all yuck. I didn't know it at the time though.

I drove a 1975 Camaro. Just a few years early they were assume machines. Being in CA didn't help.

I bought this 84 Mustang and fixed it up for my son. He drove it for a few years then upgraded to a Mazda 2 LOL. Kids these days.
