Just came across a photo of my first car when I was 16 .....basically the one that I learn to change a motor .....removing automatic, and install a four-speed........ unfortunately I lost it when I had to sell it .......while I was in the service......... I had lost my storage ........

Kind of funny..... where the picture was taken, I must’ve been going to work...... where I am parked that’s attached to the parking for the restaurant that I worked at as a busboy dishwasher which was my 2 nd job when I was 15 at Conrad’s supper club on Highway 51 McFarland Wisconsin....... i’m thinking I was probably 17 when I took this picture .......Almost 40 years ago ..wow!!

Thought you mentioned your car was white when you got a ticket for excessive noise ???

It was .........I wanted to change from it being white ..... I also didn’t know anything about bodywork and I thought by putting primer on it I could save the body a little bit longer .........A high school classmate, his dad had a shop space .......so we sprayed a primer over the white........ this is it when I bought it from my brother .......And I just noticed that’s my shop class project toolbox in the driveway by the back tire

Here you can see it already has the Doug Thorley side exhaust headers on it and it’s got the Z-bar running by the steering........ so I already had the four-speed and Headers installed......Funny story on the headers.......When I installed the passenger side header I ran my battery cable to the starter to close to the header it burned through and made contact while I was driving.... I lost power and then the smoke started rolling out from underneath the hood melted the post off the battery I thought it was on fire.......It’s funny how memories come back I had forgotten all about it just till now...... and just now I just remembered how bad it sucked when we didn’t have cell phones because I had to walk ..........:lmao F113E566-0B83-40AC-93FA-7C1351C8E1C2.jpeg
