Which 70's car was your first or second car, post pictures if you have them
You posh then to buy a modern car, i was fifteen when you bought that, 3 years later £800 got me the escort, do you have a picture of your Mullet then?I am only a young'un and didn't get my first car until '86 which was a Renault 5 1.4 GTL.
However I remember my Dad buying a Morris Marina 1700 Super back in the 70's with brown vinyl seats that hurt like hell in summer
Mark, you can post your 75, it looks like it was from the 70'sI know Mark, that is why I crashed it (not) I got my dog, who was in the back, right in the back of my neck. She was OK but I hurt like hell. Try telling your insurance company that you crashed your car and got hit by a dog.....!!!!
The Austin America, was the Austin 1100 or 1300 over here in the UKMy first was a '64 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce, 1600 cc, 5 speed, dohc. What a screamer. My brother ran it when it was low on water and blew the head gasket. My father sold it after it was fixed. I had one English car called an 'Austin America". I'm sure they slapped this name on it to sell it over here. I'm not sure what its name was in England but the model was probably something you 're all familiar with. Good running car. The first car I bought totally with my own cash was a '70 VW beetle. I didn't know it, but the crankcase was cracked. By the time I figured it out, the warranty was over. I could have had it fixed, but decided to use the money on performance parts instead of labor and did the job myself. I got the new crankcase, 88mm pistons and cyls.,a crane fireball camshaft, Holley 2 bbl.carb, larger exhaust, hotter ignition system and a few other goodies. I'd be driving to work on the Pennsylvania Turnpike and could bury the speedo in 3rd gear. We all used our CB'S back then and everyone was asking me if I had a Porsche engine in it. My crazy days.
