My best friend in high school had a '70 in that color (I think, although that pic looks a little darker than what I remember his looking like), with a 383 in it though. He was part of a street racing scene and often traded for other muscle cars for the weekend, so I got to drive most of the iconic ones without any of the hassles of ownership. A few other good friends back then did the sports car thing, which I tended to prefer for bumming driving time in.
Great stuff, guys!

In the 60's there was a Jaguar dealer in my neighborhood. On nice days they would park all their new XKE's out in front of the building, along with a few Sunbeam Tigers. I had to walk past them on my way to school. Stopping to gawk made me late for school more than a few times. It was worth it.
My second car was a 1961 Ghia hardtop. Wish I STILL had it! I've had a bunch of VeeDubs-I think they fantastic. In the market for another bug right now, but boy have they appreciated.
