The 60's Muscle Cars started off as large cars with big engines then morphed into smaller cars with huge engines. I proudly owned a 1969 Camaro SS350 brand new and kept it for 10 years. Wish I had it today. Enjoy the trip back to the beginning of the Muscle Car era! Mario

Hi Mario, I'd like to order 1 1961 Pontiac BUBBLETOP with the 421 but I need the 4 speed, not the automatic.

Can you look in your garage and see if you mistakenly put one away under a tarp and forgot about it?

Take your time I'll wait.......just hurry.

ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT ROOFLINE..........

I looked Rob but couldn't find a 4 speed! Just an automatic. Sorry about that. :( That Bubble Top was a great design on Pontiacs and Chevys too. One of my all time favorites. I also love the 63 split window Vette. It's so unique for only one year. Regards, Mario

I know you do your best to post the best. I'll make do with the 61 Bubble Top with the auto.

When I view all these great pics, it hearkens me back to childhood when I stood in front of a CANDY CASE filled with teeth rotting sugar and tooth filling structure like taffy.

Of course I had to shop the PENNY candy...only the good kids got to slide over to the nickel candy.

A 1963 Split Window is like nickle candy to me.

I do recall the candy store owner asking me to step back from the glass case and stop licking the window.

I guess the term window licker came from my life.

HA, HA, Rob you have so many great stories and I can usually relate to most of them. Not sure if that's good or bad but certainly amusing! I too was a "window licker" trying to get the best CANDY at the candy store. As I got older I would collect all the new latest car booklets fresh from the dealer and "SMELL" and sometimes "LICK" the pages! My Therapist still doesn't have a medical reason for that, but he's looking into it.

On my dream wish list I would want the 63 Split window Vette, if I could only have one. My second choice would be the 67 Camaro Zapper Z/28 with that special Zapper motor.

Mario on Mar 9, 2021 said:

Those are two great choices George. The split window Vette is one of a kind and the 67 Camaro was the First of a long heritage! Did you watch the car chase video I posted from the Bullitt movie, what a ride through the hilly streets of San Francisco. Cheers, Mario

Mario, over the years I have watched Bullitt so many times that I probably know much of the dialogue in it.

Mario on Mar 10, 2021 said:

So have I but it's nice to see just the chase scene voted one of the best car chase scenes in any movie ever and I agree. The 2 68 Mustangs from the movie survive today but not the chargers.

The engine sounds you here from the Bullitt Mustang are not genuine. If I remember correctly the sounds are from an actual race car and not from that pony.

An article in Motortrend "Dangerous Pursuit: The real truth behind the "Bullitt" chase scene" the actual cars were taken to the Willow Springs Raceway near Los Angeles where various engine revving and tire squealing sounds were recorded and then mixed into the movie. A very interesting article if you want to read it. Dated Jun 20,2005 by Mike Magda. Cheers!
