Some really nice pictures in there.

Nice.

Here's me with my first auto, a brand new '66 GTO 4 speed stick, 3 deuces. If I look angry it's because I realized I was about to enter the Army, via the draft. I had to sell the car. Click the thumbnail for a larger view.

My first choice of a desirable classic car is a mid-60s GTO coup, red with a black interior. Someone I knew slightly in the army had one--he was a Dodge heir so he could afford it--went to Vietnam and in Oct. 1966 was blown out of his jeep by a Claymore-type mine and killed. RIP, Edward M. McIlvain.

--Brant

I was almost killed in November (not wounded) and his army friend in December (wounded)--we could all three be gone

At a certain level, this is where I perceive the common sense of the electorate concerning the welfare state...

[Peron:]

Dice are rolling, the knives are out

Would-be presidents are all around

I don't say they mean harm

But they'd each give an arm

To see us six feet underground

[Eva:]

It doesn't matter what those morons say

Our nation's leaders are a feeble crew

There's only twenty of them anyway

What is twenty next to millions who

Are looking to you?

All you have to do is sit and wait

Keeping out of everybody's way

We'll ... you'll be handed power on a plate

When the ones who matter have their say

And with chaos installed

You can reluctantly agree to be called

[Peron:]

There again we could be foolish not to quit while we're ahead

For distance lends enchantment, and that is why

All exiles are distinguished, more important, they're not dead

I could find job satisfaction in Paraguay

[Eva:]

This is crazy defeatist talk

Why commit political suicide, there's no risk

There's no call for any action at all

When you have unions on your side

[Workers:]

A new Argentina, the chains of the masses untied

A new Argentina, the voice of the people

Cannot be denied

[Eva:]

There is only one man who can lead any workers' regime

He lives for your problems, he shares your ideals and your dream

He supports you, for he loves you

Understands you, is one of you

If not, how could he love me?

[Workers:]

A new Argentina, the workers' battle song

A new Argentina, the voice of the people

Rings out loud and long

[Eva:]

Now I am a worker, I've suffered the way that you do

I've been unemployed, and I've starved and I've hated it too

But I found my salvation in Peron, may the nation

Let him save them as he saved me

[All:]

A new Argentina, a new age about to begin

A new Argentina, we face the world together

And no dissent within

[Peron:]

There again we could be foolish not to quit while we're ahead

I can see us many miles away, inactive

Sipping cocktails on a terrace, taking breakfast in bed

Sleeping easy, doing nothing, it's attractive

[Eva:]

Don't think I don't think like you

I often get those nightmares too

They always take some swallowing

Sometimes it's very difficult to keep momentum

If it's you that you are following

Don't close doors, keep an escape clause

Because we might lose the Big Apple

But would I have done what I did

If I hadn't thought, if I hadn't known

We would take the country

[Eva:]

Peron has resigned from the army and this we avow

The descamisados are those he is marching with now

He supports you, for he loves you

Understands you, is one of you

If not, how could he love me?

[All:]

A new Argentina, the chains of the masses untied

A new Argentina, the voice of the people

Cannot be, and must not be denied

[Che:]

How annoying that they have to fight elections for their cause

The inconvenience, having to get a majority

If normal methods of persuasion fail to win them applause

There are other ways of establishing authority

[All:]

A new Argentina, the chains of the masses untied

A new Argentina, the voice of the people

Cannot be, and will not be, and must not be denied.

Don't cry for me Argentina. Cry for yourselves

This was mine - no air scoop - that blue with with striping...gorgeous car...

Andy011.jpg

Shortly after I bought the GTO I took it a few times to run it at a 1/4 mile Long Island drag strip. I was entered in B stock which meant I would be racing against other GTOs with the same engine, 442s also with 3 deuces under the hood and comparable Chevelle's. Now that was an adrenalin rush...sitting at the line, nervously watching the red lights change to green, popping the clutch and power shifting thru the gears.

Adam, I thought all the 442's had a scooped hood. What year was yours & did it have the 3 2's? The 442's I remember (1966-67) had really nice interior. I believe it cost more than the Goat, which I paid $3200 for.

1969 - they removed the air scoops - see this site
