50th Anniversary Celebration
2019 is the 50th birthday of the cars born in 1969! Many believe that the 1969-1970 muscle car years were the peak of performance and style. This is our opportunity to celebrate these fantastic cars and relive some old memories. During 2019 we will be featuring your stories and photos about the cars we collect. I want to hear how you will celebrate the 50th birthday of our cars with stories and photos. Our regular readers and occasional visitors to this site want to hear your stories.
Your contributions are needed to make this happen. Did you purchase a new muscle car in 1969? Did you own one as a used car back in the day and had to sell it for some reason? Did you total your car? Did a buddy buy one and you cruised all over picking up girls and street racing the competition?
Tell us what you are working on, what muscle car brand do you own now and what other cars are in your collection. Do you have a special story about your car(s)? How did you find it, or maybe a story about the one that got away? Perhaps you have finally purchased your dream Hemi or L88 or Boss 9…..or maybe you had to sell your prized possession because you were going to have a baby. Maybe you were headed off to war, or your dad got you hooked on cars with a father son project. It could be that your dad came home with a new big block 4-speed for a family car and you were thrilled but your mother not so much.
How about a memorable night at the drive in, keep it clean?
Your stories and photos don’t need to be limited strictly to 1969 but do need to be period correct for the time.
We know that everyone of you out there has at least one story that our readers what to hear. When you are at a car event you sit around and “bench race” with all your buddies. We want you to share those stories with us!
If you are a restoration shop and would like to share some of your work, either full cars or smaller details, we would love to have those as well.
How about a story and photos about when you attended a NASCAR race and saw one of your heros like Cale, Richard or David race.
Old photos of our cars from the 70s and 80s are also good. Junk yard discoveries and drag strip photos are also great.
I personally like “day two” photos of the car with the wild 70s/80s custom paint schemes with and custom wheels Let’s see how many we can get. For this I will accept any vintage car near the years 69&70!
