CHORUS: Corvettes at Wal-Mart
  
>> Here's a pretty neat film clip about a guy in Florida who owns probably every Chevy ever made.  Hope you enjoy.

>> This guy does not have any automatics, and has over 2,067 big block Corvettes. He also has a Roman Red '60 Impala convertible. He has several 442's including a '64. He has one of only 2 or 3 1970 big block Corvettes with the aluminum engine. That is probably a million dollar car. It is all GM and all muscle.

>> Though the building in Punta Gorda, Florida, was once a Wal-Mart, it's not any more. When Rick Treworgy saw that it was vacant, he decided it would be the perfect place to showcase almost 200 Corvettes and other GM muscle cars he owns in a vast collection begun more than 30 years ago. He bought it, and now, it's open to the public.

>> Called Muscle Car City, the venue is attracting thousands of people who harken back to the golden days of muscle cars and their youth. It's also drawing a newer generation of enthusiasts.

TBG would have a Hay Day in that place.  He's a car enthusiast so chances are he has already been there.

I hate to say it, but I wouldn't go near the place. Corvette people are the worst of the worst with their plastic pieces of shit. They all want to look down their noses at you, like the Vette is the cream of the crop. Rustang people are just about as bad.

 

I'm more of a pre-war enthusiast. That's when they built real cars. My favorites being 1925-1935. The Cords,Auburns, Duesenburgs, Cadillacs, Packards, are all the ultimate in luxury for the era. Post 1960 I really have no interest in. I only have the 76 because of the collector value being touted as the last full sized convertible.

Listen, all you jackasses (sorry, I guess I'll need to ban myself), but some of us could never afford big ass power cars. I bought a used 4-banger British sports car and drove it 25 years. At the time, my friends bought used VW Bugs, the older men that were successful bought Cads, and the young men with money bought Corvettes. None of them lasted 25 years.

One of my kids bought a '79 collector Corvette. That car fucking rocks. It lasted 25 years: it's still mint.

All these cars are great. Hell, I'd be happy with a '69 VW van as long as Leora, Kristy, Kami, Elisa, Maya, and Nastya are in back. I have my values.

Foamy....you missed your calling!!  What a poetic post....you should have been a poet!   I would love to own a '69 VW van, had allot of fun and memories in one in my younger years.   Hell, none of those girls would have to be in the back either......I would pick a whole new stable of girls to join me, one's that I could understand when they said they had to Pee lol.  Like I said earlier, the Corvette is my second choice....I have nothing against them if it's my second choice :)

I'm a machine guy. I just like machines. I don't discriminate. Either they are interesting and well crafted, or they're not.

Kinda like my women. I'm old school.

Here's the car I'd be driving around with my RLC queens:

I though you were into that type of stuff as I seen you post some pics before of some nice looking older cars.

In my youth, I always had expansive tastes when it came to day dreaming about cars.
Cars were glory.

Cars got you girl friends.

Girl friends were glory.

Things change after a few years when the Mother-In-Law and diaper change duties show up.

I still change the oil on my cars. No prob...
