Car crazy

How many of you are car crazy? What brands & years.
I'm a Ford & Mercury fanatic. I have cars & trucks from 1928 Model A to 1979 trucks.

We have 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 with a 460, & a 1998 Camaro IROC 350. We have fun with them both when we have time, and the grandkids don't have them out.

My dad has been trying to give me his 1968 Chevy SS 427 Impala Convertable. I was 10 years old when he brought it home new and today it has only 45,000 miles on it. I'd take it off his hands but I don't have an indoor place to store it where he does in their garage.

ummmmm, I guess I'll have to be the first to say I have garage space for it and will gladly take one for the team and volunteer to take it...

1969 Chevrolet pickup

A 1961 Pontiac Bonneville tri power 348 horse 389 CI bubble top was the nicest car for its day I ever owned, then a 67 GTO 455 CI. The most powerful and fastest is my 2008 F250 Ford. If I were to load my 310 HP tune, by all accounts it would run under a 13 second 1/4 mile. I use the 210 HP tune. 350 HP + 210 + 21 or 10% to 15% for drive train loss = 580 + fly wheel HP.

When it comes to old cars, what I've owned and what I want are two totally differant things.

What I have owned = "zero"

What I want
1969 Mercury Cyclone GT (with the 429 cobra jet engine, it is what my dad had and mom said to get rid of it when she got pregnant with me, said it wasn't a family car) This is what my dad had told me before he past away.
