flip I want that grady.
Which car did you prefer, the chevelle or the charger? While I had my 402hp 454headed SS Malibu my best friend had the 440 magnum charger. I drove each. I appreciated the handling and high output of the chevelle but the charger seemed more powerful. I remember the positracion and giving it some pedal on a turn and the damn thing straightened out on me.
Anyway, the R/T felt more powerful but the SS handled better in my opinion.
Nice cars Goat.
No, they sold the 403 Olds version in the other states besides Cali too. I had a friend that had a Smokey themed car (black & gold stripes/lettering, t-top with the big chicken on hood) 4 speed that came with the 403. My auto tranny 400 Poncho would smoke his ass in the 1/4 mile, which chapped his ass to no end.:D

Supposedly here's a public link to the gallery as a whole since I can't link individual photos: http://www.dropbox.com/gallery/1604809/1/cars?h=1c8aa0
The worst damage I ever did to it was when I sadly hit a German Shepherd (Dog that is, not a tutonic sheep herder)
Sorry for the spelling. I lapse into American occasionally.
Alrighty time to introduce my cars since we were talking about all of this on mumble tonight.
First up I had a 1990 Volvo 240 DL, this was by far my favorite car apart from my current. This thing seemed like a boat on the inside but was compact on the outside. I used to rally this car up and down Page Mill to 35 when I was bored cause it could handle it. This one time while I was heading down Page Mill an Audi in front of me was going so slow that they pulled over for me.
I actually bought this car from my friend, he was buying his first BMW M3 and wanted to sell the car but keep it within the "family" as it were. So I bought it and it was the best 3 and a half years of car ownership... It ended one night when I hydroplaned, fishtailed, and drove up a barrier... bent the frame, thing still drove, just not straight.
Car number 2, Volvo number 2. 1989 Volvo 780. This was my only and probably will be my only time owning a "rare" car. Only 5,200 or so were built and it was just a beautiful car... Unfortunately it just had problems from the get go and died on me. It was a fun car, had its problems but still fun.
My latest car, number 3. A 2013 MINI Cooper Hardtop.
I love it, don't care what people say about it, its been an amazing car, gets awesome mileage, can park it anywhere in the Bay Area cause it fits everywhere. I love this car. I'm so happy I bought it, and I bought it new. It was my gift to myself for getting out of QA (that lasted a whole year lol). It's still going strong after almost 3 years, and 40k miles. Love it to bits.
