My Toys
..........Past and Present

 

Toys, can't live with them.

Can't live without them.

 

 

The garden tractor from Hell!  I bought it for Dad to drive in the pits, but he couldn't sit on it comfortably.

The little demon is powered by a 20 hp Wisconsin high rpm 4-cycle motor. It has a Model 'A' trans and a very narrowed 47 Ford rear.

 

 

rail01.jpg (53151 bytes)The dragster I owned and bench raced for 8 years.  It was built by the Moss brothers in Omaha for the 1962 season.  

rail02.jpg (53247 bytes)It had a 428 Buick nailhead that started life as a 401.  It had a 6-71 Isky blower and Enderle fuel injection.

rail03.jpg (54796 bytes)Real magnesium rims Eddie?  Yes and it had M&H Racemaster Dragster slicks that hadn't been spun in anger.

rail04.jpg (47134 bytes)The rear view. It had a chute but our dog ate it! Just like my homework.

rail05.jpg (50559 bytes)The slingshot had lots of chrome, axle, radius rods, steering arm and linkage.  It had a cute little moon tank up front and lots of braided line.

dakota02.jpg (53337 bytes)dakota01.jpg (57973 bytes) This is my 2001 Limited Edition Dodge Motorsports Dakota.  It has a 4.7L V-8, 5-speed trans and 3.55 posi rear.  It is 1 of 5000 Motorsports  trucks built.  They were mid year introductions and only made in 2001.   So, it's a rare truck!

 

cruiser02.jpg (59850 bytes)cruiser01.jpg (52445 bytes)This is Wifey's 2001 PT Cruiser.  We ordered it from the factory and waited for months to get it.  It's the Touring Edition with 4 wheel disk brakes and ABS, traction control, remote locks and alarm system, etc.

 

mustang01.jpg (31194 bytes)My 1967 Mustang has a 302 cu. in. motor from a 1983 Mustang GT and original auto trans.  It will haul butt!

 

austin01.jpg (41533 bytes)This is a picture of the Austin I owned for many years.  It is Jeremy's now and sits in a garage at a rental house. I drove it with a Datsun 4-cylinder, 4-speed.  Currently there is a 350 Chevy sitting in it.

rail07.jpg (36674 bytes)Jeremy is saying his goodbyes to the rail.  Two guys from Lincoln were on their way to purchase it.

rail08.jpg (33755 bytes)My Z-28, Austin and 67 Mustang (hiding in the rear) are all in this shot.
