I have yet to pin down my year here, so in observance of that tradition, suffice it to say: the GTO. ;)

Admission of guilt: I just wanna hump that '61 Chevy. That is one of the nicest asses ever put on a car.

But what I know most about my birth year is that there was no Corvette produced for sale for that MY. :scratchchin:

Lots of great cars in my birth year....kind of the high point of the muscle car era.. too many to choose from---Buick GSX, Olds W30 442, Chevelle SS 454, Pontiac GTO Judge, Hemi Cuda, Hemi Challenger R/T, Mustang Mach 1, Boss 302, Boss 429, Cougar Eliminator, Torino GT, Torino Cobra, Mercury Cyclone, etc.....plus the 1st of the 2nd gen Camaro and Firebird.

Here's one in particular I like from '70.

If you were born in a generous automotive year, just find a good pic of one example and post it up. It doesn't have to be the "ultimate" for the year, just a hot car from the year of your birth.

Yah, given his knowledge and areas of interest I had pegged him more around 55-65.

If everyone only took an interest in things from their lifetime, there'd be no History channel, no historians, no history classes, no museums and no recognition of past events, to name but a very few casualties to such a limited outlook. Everyone involved in those instances is likely to be studying things older than them, too- sometimes by thousands of years. Quite commonplace.

Besides, 'growing up' in the barren automotive wasteland that was the '80s, as a gearhead one was pretty much forced to appreciate vintage iron. WTH is one supposed to do with a -say- '85 Celebrity ??

Hope I don't look 55-65 yet :

I get this completely, my contemporary gearhead friends all Hated new cars back then. It was all about finding the cleanest musclecar you could afford.

I don't think there was anything good about 1978 :mellow:

Not the easiest year for this topic, you almost have to go to trucks or exotics.
