1) 1967 Mustang Coupe
This was originally a 6 cylinder car. I bought it because a prior owner put a real Boss 302 motor in it, and I wanted the motor. It is getting a mild 302 this winter. The car was white, but I am changing it to an asymetrical blue and orange.
2) 1969 Boss 302
This was my first car that I paid $1800 in 1974. I just sent it out for restoration on the body. I can do engine and mechanical, but my bodywork is really poor. It is Meadowlark Yellow
3) 1969 Boss 302 Trans-Am Racer
This is a privateer car, not a factory car. In 1969 a friend of mine bought it new and sortly after that, broke a piston in it. This was a very common problem that was fixed with reinforced pistons for the 1970 model year. It was built into a road race car and competed in SCCA Nationals, Run-offs and IMSA. I later bought the car, but have not raced it.
4) 1970 Boss 302
I bought this around 1984. It had a wrong engine in it, but now it has a different wrong engine. I am tryinig to build a Boss 302 engine stroker. I have 2 stroker cranks to choose from, one the will make 331 cubic inches and another that would make 347 cubic inches. I have not decided on which heads to use, Boss 302, Hi-Port Boss 302, or Yates C3. This car is Medium Lime Metallic.
Hold your horses.... The Mercedes stuff is coming later!
5) 1970 Boss 302
Yea, I like these cars. This was a basket case from San Antonio TX. I have not started any serious work on this one. It is Meadowlark Yellow also.
6) 1970 Chevorlet P10 Step Van
This is the "Thermite Canary", which has a 400 cubic inch Small Block Chevy.
It has it's own web site:
7) 1974 DeTomaso Pantera
My second car that I bought is 1975. The original owner had the hots for a Corvette, and I had the hots for the Pantera. Pretty much stock, and a pretty orange color.
8) 1984 Corvette
"The most advance production car on the planet" as the advertising went back then. It has the 4+3 Doug Nash transmission, which was not so common for the '84s. I had to wait 11 months for it when I bought it new. It is really dramatic how the Corvette has improved each year since then. It was decently quick when new, but it's 205 HP seems weak nowadays. Is is black and needs a paint job.
9) 1987 Buick Grand National
These are quick cars and easy to hop-up, but I don't have much done on it. Like all GNs it is sinnister Black.
10) 1992 Mercedes 500E
I bought this car last year. I had to replace the upper engine wiring harness. It has 18" Monoblocs and is Charcoal and Silver.
11) 1993 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight LSS
This car has lots of options on it. I wish my 500E had the ergonomics of this car. A Driver Information Center DIC shows all gauge readings, fuel numbers, ETA Time/Date numbers, and Oil info. It has the Sport Suspension and ride leveling rear struts. The 3800 engine is not a tire burner, but it runs remarkably nice.
12) 2002 Mercedes AMG CL55
I bought this car last week thru eBay, and it is being shipped to me. It is Dark Blue and has 20" aftermarket wheels.
