I owned that '68 back in '75. Tho mine started out a non-factory metallic green, which I put a '69 SS front end on (bought it wrecked), and painted it sunflower yellow with big ol' wide @ss black twin stripes. Wide smoothies and jacked to the sky.

Chick magnet, I tell ya it was....them was da daze!

Yep, I'm man enough to rock that color.  :)

Nope...but that color was trendy when those wheels were cool.  The car is a time warp from the eighties.

I could drive that car no sweat! Pink with dated rims, sure not a moments concern for me. But then I have always been a Chevelle guy too!  beerdude

You have to take into account that I have a rusty banana yellow 68 Chevelle more door that needs quarters, front fenders, a new interior and paint so that pink two door would be a huge step up for me!  :))
You boys better hold on cause i'm gonna have to stand on it!

NEED A 1/2" BONNEY STREAMLINE COMBINATION AND ANY OVER 13/16" TOO!

There is a very fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?

You telling me Centerlines aren't hip anymore?  Next you're gonna tell me slotted magnesium wheels aren't cool.
What about Cragars?

I'm so un-hip I figure if I wait long enough, I'll be cool again.
I'm just a guy in a garage with some tools...

Take a number Bruce! I still dig the Centerlines too!  beerdude  Worlds better than those stupid looking bling bling rims and tires they are running now, absolutely gross I tell ya. I also like the old Cragers too. I am too cool for school and could care less what anyone else thinks!  ;)

If you listen to what I say, it's your own fault!   :))

I love slotted mag rims, and Cragars....torq thrusts are my fav...



...but no, I don't like centerlines. And like Buck I don't care what anyone thinks.  :)
