    My first car was a Sunbeam Alpine. It had no: paint, exhaust, brakes, clutch cylinder or rag top. i am still looking for one to restore. It was a lot of fun.

    The “LP” must have been a very localized regional thing, or maybe even an option package from a specific dealer. Google doesn’t know what a Challenger LP is.

    Also, I have no idea about the 360 emblems. The base V8 was the 318, with the small block 340 being an option. Above that, the optional engines were all big block B and RB models. The small block 360 was available, but only in 1974.

    No idea about the rear scoops either. Perhaps an aftermarket addition.

    [quote=”vtaylor67″ post=171519]the “LP” as far as I know stands for Limited Production. the Car originally had a 318 C.I.D but the emblems on the rear quarter panels said “360”. she also had rear scoops that were non functional.[/quote]

    Very strange. The Challenger “Rallye” replaced the R/T package in ’72, and it had fake brake-cooling vents, but they were on the front fenders. Sounds to me like a previous owner cobbled some stuff together.

    1986 Cadillac Deville. That beauty took me and my friends off-roading to our backwoods hangout so many times. The exhaust pipes and cat were troopers, most of the time 😆

    Interesting. I didn’t know that Mercury still used the breezeway rear window in ’68. I thought that peculiar feature ended around ’66 or so. Nice car.

    Mine was a 94 Ford Crown Victoria LX that I bought from my aunt for 300 bucks. She couldn’t get it started so she sold it to me after it sat for like six months. 30 mins and a quick battery charge later she fired right up and I drove it home. Needless to say she was a little mad. Still have that car and its in the final stages of a complete Drivetrain rebuild.

    early model 79 Mustang 2.8 Hatchback. Had all the leftover parts from ’78 fairmont-zepher. Brake calipers, flex plate, drums, starter, just to name a few. It was made in Oct of 78. Never tried to see what number it was off the assembly line. I still have it, it’s covered, and it hasn’t run in about 26 years. Saving it for a project in about 10 years. If anyone has a 2.8l Cologne engine from 77-78 they want to sell, keep me in mind. That’s the engine that’s in there. My Pop borrowed my car for about six months and destroyed the numbers matching motor :(. Oh well. It will be back on the road though!

    I’ll put a couple firsts:

    First car I drove: 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 (I was 13 years old)
    First car I drove regularly: 1998 Chevy Venture (hand-me-down from parents)
    First car I owned: 1997 Buick LeSabre Custom (It had a problem with vapor-locking and eventually had a bad fuel pump)
