Old Hot Rods, Rat Rods, and Muscle Cars
Although this site is mainly about the 1963 lemans, and other Pontiacs, there will also be info about other old musclecars, and hot rods(example: 442's,buick GS's,etc.) This is the stuff that me and my family really dig! Old cars are our favorite hobby. We are really Pontiac nuts at heart (you know, GTOs and stuff), but we like many other interesting automobiles made by GM. We aren't Ford people, but there are a few exceptions, my dad likes '58 Rancheros, I like Edsels, and my brother and I really go for '32 Ford hot rods and stuff like that. Also, my sister likes mustangs (yikes!), I suppose everyones different. We also have some interest in mopars. although in our opinion they are not as cool as a pontiac GTO or an Olds 442. My dad has owned Plymouth RoadRunner's and Dodge Superbee's before, and he really liked them. In short, We Like Cars!
