Schwinn Stingray! With a Banana seat and a sissy bar and Ape hanger handlebars!!! Loved those things! I remember building bikes in my younger days. changing all the parts around, swapping cranks, etc.

My Dad bought 3 of them at Christmas (one for both of my brothers and one for me) this is the exact moment I fell in love with the Ford Mustang and yes I still have mine (it's a little worse for wear but It's in fair condition for a toy that was played with.

Going fast is fun but life is short so slow down and enjoy the ride :D Frank

That's a great ad: I got one at Christmas when I was a kid...my first Mustang! Along with my first girlfriend! back then, a new Mustang was sure to get you some female companionship!

What was true then is still true today. Mustangs are chick magnets.

I had the Orange 1966 Mustang Coupe version. They were pretty neat to have as a kiddo, in the middle of the excitement of first generation Mustang.

Well the other day it dawned on me as I was feeding $1.25 in to a Coke machine that I remember doing the same thing and it was only 25cents and the Coke tasted better from a glass bottle.

I remember back in the day, I "borrowed" my brother's big block camaro and on the way home I stopped to fill it up self serve. The car was hard to start when hot so the attendant told me to just leave it running. As he was pumping the gas the idle surged a bit and I feathered the throttle and gave it a quick stab to keep it running. The attendant was sucked almost completely into the gas tank! I drove it home with a pair of sneakers banging against the rear bumper with every bump.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

I remember one Friday night I was driving from the YMCA when my 1965 GTO ran out of gas. I ran back to the Y and got some of my friends to push it down main street in heavy traffic to a Sunoco Station. I only had 35 cents in my gym shorts So I told the guy and he said I'll put in a little extra and so he put in a couple of gallons for about a buck. I drove home got some cash from my Dad and paid the guy and to this day he is one of my best friends.

Yeah I remember buying my first car. 1965 GTO for 150.00 bucks. It had no brakes and the drivers seat was ripped and an Earl Shibb (spelling) paint job that was peeling like old wall paper. But it was mine and all my friends were jealous that I had wheels.
