What is your favorite car of the '60s?

So, a new feature we are playing with is a picture contest and this is an example of that. Post a picture, and it will create a thumbnail at the top. Vote on the post and the order of thumbnails will change by the number of votes received.

In case I wasn't clear , Don Garlits is a dad-gum American Treasure . Even though he'd make a face if you said that as he does not use profanity ...

From Wikipedia
"In May 2014 at age 82, Garlits set a 184 mph (296 km/h) speed record with Swamp Rat 37, a 2,000 hp battery-powered EV dragster .[15] In July 2019 at age 87, he set a new quarter-mile record of 189.03 mph (304.21 km/h) with Swamp Rat 38, a 1,500 lb dragster with a battery-powered 800 hp electric motor."

That's what I aspire to be doing at 87 :)

I love old cars, love looking at them - I can watch those classic car auction shows for hours. But I don't want one.

Our minivan has the same 0-60 time as a '67 Mustang. And it has airbags, bluetooth, and really good A/C.
Cars built back then were deathtraps compared today.


Even in the last 15-20 years has seen quite bit of improvement in safety.

No argument here either, GM pick up trucks had hoods that were basically guilliotines in head on collisions during
this era
