Re: It's got a HEMI!!!

Yeah, part of me regrets not having taken him up on it -- he told me about some of the toys his dad had

A car collector from Vermont bought it from me in '74 -- I thought i got a good deal because he paid me what I paid for it, and I enjoyed it for almost three years (getting parts was a pain, tho -- it was a royal pain tracking down sources -- an air traffic controller at JFK I met helped me track down the windshield). I say I thought I got a good deal when I sold it but I found out years later that I had #98 -- the last Italia of '68 production which had the '69 interior, guages and brakes -- a one of a kind! In fact #98 doesn't show in the Intermecchanica registry (who I contacted). I suspect the collector knew this because he wanted to know the serial number from our first contact. Oh, well... it's probably in a museum somewhere but, hopefully, someone also enjoyed driving it for a while. It was just a 4bbl 302 with the hotter cam (about 275 hp) but in the super light car it was fast -- nice T10 4spd (like my 68 fastack), hand hammered (over oak forms) aluminum body, great perforated leather seats with over-shoulder belts. You sat just in front of the rear wheels -- very cozy <lol>

I'm in upstate NY about 2.5 hours N of NYC, an hour south of Albany in a rural area of the eastern Catskills not far from Woodstock ...a litle more than an hour west of LimeRock CT -- nice area ...plenty of fun 2-lane backroads.

Unfortunately, these days I have a Taurus wagon and a Ranger 4.0 5-spd 4x4, but I still get to drive my old '01 Cobra when my friend comes to visit

Life changes -- there's probably no new Mustang in my future for a while, though I soooo whant an '09 Boss <sigh>

Re: It's got a HEMI!!!

I ran with a Chrysler 300C down the interstate one day, and we were about even in terms of accelleration.

345HP. :hmm: :dunno:

Re: It's got a HEMI!!!

I'm not so impessed either. Apparently he has me by 85HP but he can't pull on me.

Re: It's got a HEMI!!!

wikipedia's "article" is full if incorrect statements, least of all it's claims about the new Hemi.

Wikipedia is a prime example of GIGO.

Re: It's got a HEMI!!!
