I remember when I was a teenager back in the 60s and early 70s a lot of the muscle cars were all jaked up in the back and lowered in the front. You just don't see that anymore do ya? I guess rice is the in thing now.... :roll:

Some of you fellow old timers can relate with me now, can't ya?

I remember seeing a lot of Mustangs on a rake and Novas.

That 'rake' was a bit dangous, put a lot of weight on the front wheels, hurt braking, plus the law started changing to stop that. In NC the max you can raise the back bumber now is 6 inchs.That rake also helped when it came to laying rubber.
With the rear surspenions that we have on the Bullitt, a coil spring change would do the trick. But remember, you are transferring the weight to the front of the car,so stoping would take a bit more distance. And we don't need the help turning those z45s over. #1673 doesn't, Prozac burns them rear good as is!

aaaahhhhh, brings back some good memories Vickie!!
here in St. Louis, i remember a LOT of Mopars being jacked up. Cudas, Chargers, Darts, Road Runners, Challengers, along with the usual assortment of Camaros, Chevelles, Javelins, GTO's, and Mustangs. the sight of a good 68,69,70,71 muscle car can still snap my neck around.
i went to a VERY small school here in St. Louis(graduated with 57 others in 1975) and senior year, some of my friends had some KICK ASS cars: 69 Road Runner w/373, edlebrock hi-rise, holley double pumper, straight pipes and glass packs out the side, a 69 GTO with ram air, a 68 Firebird(think it was a formula), a 71 Hurst Olds/442, a 69 Torino that was REALLY jacked up, and a 71 Monte Carlo with some factory high performance engine that i'd never heard of("engine by Tornavonda"(SP?). one guy ( not in my "group") even got to drive his dad's yellow Pantera once in a while....
sigh...... of course i drove a 65 Rambler with a 199 cubic inch straight six engine...(we didn't have a ton o' money...bought it for $500.00)
but still, those guys drove pretty cool cars for a bunch of high school seniors!!
then my parents next door neighbor had a 69 SS 396 Camaro that was NOT street legal and turned high 11's at the 1/4 THAT was fun!!!!!!as you can see, i've had the "fever" for a VERY long time..
pretty nice memories that brought back Vickie, i hadn't thought about some of those high school cars in a LONG time!!

My Poor self had 66 Galiaxe 500 2dr with 2892bbl 3spd on the floor that was missing 3rd gear. Chrome reverse wheels & G60's. I love that car. I put every known toy from the Kmart auto section on it. I also Had 64 Thunderbird that the Oil press would drop to "0" after driving for an hour, Chicks loved that car.
