    American Graffiti portrays exactly the culture I grew up in... spent a lot of summer nights cruising Saginaw's main drags in my Ford coupe. We have a copy and play it often... still gives me warm, fuzzy feelings. Those were good and innocent times and they are not coming back.

    Jackie, that is a really nice car.

    Don't know if you've been there yet but it's just outside Houston. Be nice to cruise up there in your Chevelle. -Al

    Lookin good Al.

    Not a yellow 5-window deuce, but it's in the same vein (chopped, fenderless, 4-speed, etc). I watched the movie again last night and it still moves me.

    Thanks for the info, Al.

I knowingly paid a bit too much because of the low mileage and good condition.

    It's going to need a timimg belt change this year and that's expensive... I'm guessing around $2000.00.
    I just had the belt change and the dealer took pity on me... It cost a tad under a thousand bucks.

    In a couple of weeks I will be loading the back end with shooting equipment and going to matches. One nice thing about 944's. There's room to do so. I had a really good looking 911 a few years ago and I never did figure out how to get both Glorya and my rifle in the darn thing. It went.

    Clean Shorts

    Jackie

    I always enjoyed cleaning my cars even if we weren't going anywhere. When you have it detailed and know it's looking good, when you get inside and hit the key,
    even the motor sounds better.

    And yeah.....life is good.

    Jackie....that car would look good covered in mud. Hard to beat a '67 with a big rat.

    Jackie, your '67 Malibu reminds me of the first new car I bought when I got home from the Army. It was a SS-396, same color as yours. Back in those days I would have never dreamed of owning a car with an air conditioner and an automatic transmission so it was a plain Jane by todays standards. I gave $3,000.00 for it, out the door. Boy, have times changed or what?

    Gene,

    I think the color is Marina Blue which was the color of my 66 SS 396.
