When I was 6 or 7 our neighbors son had a blue Dodge Super Bee. I thought it was awesome. I was sad the day he wrapped it around a tree and totaled it.

My now deceased uncle had one of these. He was quite the bon vivant. Artist, played Triple A ball and had an try-out with the Dodgers...super cool guy. Finally settled in as an art instructor until he retired.

I ended up with the Scirocco. Only 75 HP and almost as fast as the Trans Am.
In 1986, I rode with some friends in a Sirocco from Denton to Dallas, to "Confettis" night club. We returned with 6 people in that car. Yea.....6.

Did he play for Duke Schnieder? My dad quotes him all the time......
And he (my dad) had this cool car. He thought it was cooler than a vette. But he was never a car guy. But is the first car I ever got to steer.

It was North Texas State. I don't remember how many doors it had. I just remember sharing the backseat with 3 girls. What I was willing to do for my fellow human...........

I can't remember. I was so young.

I loved the TR-7s. Designed in the same era as the original Lotus Esprit!!

They were all 2 door coupes. No grand coupe's like today.

I remember partying with the sorority girls from there. Ah...the good old days.

I'm impressed by your altruism.

No doubt. The Dart my parent had was like a mini-tank. The Plymouth Fury III was like a M1A1. You could drive through anything.

I remember being sick on our carless day and my mother was worried about driving me to the doctor and getting a ticket.

And the local newspaper ran a comic strip called "Carlos Daiz" which was penned by my Dad's graphic artist from his printing factory.
