(1) My bucket list car is and always has been a 1966 two door hard top Chevy II SS. I already have it sitting in the back yard under a cover waiting on a complete rebuild.

(2) I don't know why but I've always wanted a C5 Titanium Silver Corvette. I know it isn't exactly muscle car era but it's on my list.

(3) 1970 1/2 Z28. I had one one time and let it get away. It would probably still be in my top five.

(4) 1963 split window Corvette. There used to be one sitting in a garage about a hour away from me. I tried to buy it for years. One day I showed up and it was gone. The guy actually felt bad about selling it but some one else hit him up at the right time and it was gone.

(5) 1966 Fastback Mustang. I've always like the way they looked and would love to own one. I was born in 66
so that year always appealed to me.

(6) Honorable mention is a 1955 210 Bel Air sedan. I've owned a couple but always sold them before I could turn them into what I wanted.

My Dad worked for Pontiac at Plant 51 where they built the Iron Duke (on occasion, the Super Duty Iron Duke). Before that, he worked at plant 8, starting out making steering knuckles. These Pontiacs remind me of when I was kid at Pontiac Headquarters car shows. I remember the early 60's Super Duty cars and a baby blue lightweight car at that car show. Rick Dobbertin showed up one year with his J2000. It was always a good show.
I don't have room for much, but if I did, here's my short list. My problem is I like everything, so even this list changes every 30 seconds.
My '63 Nova
'69 Roadrunner (my best friend had one in high school- loved that car)
'67 Malibu 327 4 speed (I had a '67 SS 396 4 speed Chevelle in high school, but I'd rather have a small block Malibu today.)
'66 Belvedere
'68 L79 Nova 4 speed
'70 1/2 Z28 (G2072, I saw your's and had to have one, too !)
'71 4 speed Trans Am

(#1) A real all-steel street replica of one of the Bill Thomas Fastback '63 Nova's, in 1965 trim...a phantom build as if GM had actually seen the light and built a stock steel body.
(#2) 1973 SD455/4-speed Trans Am, in Brewster Green
(#3) 1971 Mustang Boss 351
(#4) 1970 AMC AMX
(#5) 1972 De Tomaso Pantera GTS
(#6) 1967 Corvette L88 coupe.
(#7) 1971 Dodge Demon 340 4-speed
(#8) 1970 Yenko Deuce 4-speed, in either Fathom Blue or Forest Green.
(#9) 1970-1/2 Camaro RS/SS 396.
(#10) 1971 Maverick Grabber, refitted with a 400"+ Windsor block/CHI Cleveland headed "Clevor".

(#11) the 1972 Nova SS, 406 alum headed SBC I already own......but I'm always on the lookout for a '62-65 4-door shell to turn into the 2-door fastback clone. That is #1 on the bucket build list, followed by the Maverick.
I have a weird hankering for a front engine LS, pro-touring, road race flared fender '65-69 Corvair convertible too..:oops:
