I should have kept my 1965 Porsche SC coupe with sun roof. The last year of the 356 model, what a pure joy driving machine. Best memory was a Dodge RT coming up along side of me on I-95, his jaw dropped when I shifted into fourth gear at about 105 mph and pulled away. 107 hp @ 5800 rpm out of 96.5 cubic inches of displacement, 115 mph max amazing !!
Best gun I did keep a Colt 357 Python, blue steel 6" barrel, been better than blue chip stock.

The car sold, a 1968 Dodge Charger reddish orange with the black vinyl top, beautiful!
The gun, kept, a 1978 Colt Python, bought new. It hasn't fired more than 50 shots. The blueing looks a mile deep.

Ahhhh - It brings back memories.
I had a '67, a '69 and a '64 Baracuda.
They all shared the same worked 340 cube V8. So much fun in a straight line. The cornering was a bit agricultural though. (hence the 3 changeovers).

Other fun machines were a 68 Dodge Charge with a 440, and a 48 Fargo pickup powered by a Oldsmobile 394 rocket. That was a death machine as all the money was all spent on power, rather than upgrading the original drum brakes and vacuum wipers.
I got it out of my system early and managed to live to tell the tale.
