Shipwreck, that '60 sounds super cool. The '59 may be to collectable to find in my price range.

Hell, I'm 48 and my Mom still sticks her arm across me in the car. Old habits die hard.

I just saw a two door Mercedes in NB with the plates reading TIKICLB. The license place frame was an ad for the Tiki Room club in Costa Mesa.

Probably the owners of the venerable punk club. I think the Tiki Room has closed recently. Anybody have any info on that? There was a huge tiki on the roof carved by Leroy but you wouldn't notice it if you weren't looking for it.

too lazy to scan a picture of my car so I got this from the interNet. I was lucky enough to have parents who bought a '64 malibu convertible in the 80's for $700. It was parked on the PCH in Malibu and my pops went scurring thru the beach looking fo the owner to see if the $800 price tag was fo real... yeah thats right, he talked him down a $100. On my 16 birthday in '96 I drove that car all thru highschool, and rarely put the top up. I hope to cruise it to some tiki events this summer down south with my tikis fo sale fillin up the back seat. Funny one, trader rick, me too, she's sitting in my parents garage til I sell enough tikis to pay fo new brake cyllinders. Like a dork, I start it up every weekend but I ran out a gas and can't afford any.

My first car was a 1970 Barracuda Gran Coupe.
It was a rust and bondo bucket, and even after I gave it to the bdoy shop it still was a bondo bucket.
Changed the whole drivetrain from slant six and 904 tranny with wimpy rear end & suspension to hot 340/727/8.75 sure grip rear end and XHD suspension.
Then met an American guy who really made it an awsome machine, with me helping him..then after a year and a half of working on it, I crashed it after 9 days of putting it on the road.
Sent the surviving stuff to my friend (who left back to the states) and he said he bought me a 72 Challenger. If he ain't BS me, that should someday be my car.
In the mean time I sold my 1970 Dart Swinger to another buddy here. It is a rust and bondo bucket just like all the old cars around here.

Some pics of my Barracuda:


when I bought it in 1991


After body work and paint (maybe looks good in the pic, but under the paint there is 1/4" thick bondo)


1997 - Ouch! my whole life savings! Never try to impress a motorcycle rider while on a slick road with narrow tires and more than 350 HP...

CruzinTiki, we were at the "Woodies on the Wharf" also. Probably walked right by you.

Some day I will own one.

1951 Ford Custom Fordor - it's got electrical problems now and hasn't seen much action in the last year - I gotta find the time to fix her, kinda hard with all the projects around the house.
