Sidewinder special
#1
So I was out in the mustang and a bloke comes over and says I got 1 of them. I say a 73 and he says "no come around to my house sometime I have a sidewinder special" like I should know what that means. So people what are they and how will I know what to look for when I get there. Will google it when I get home late today.

Gasoline is for washing parts.
Alcohol is for drinking.
Nitomethane is for racing!

it appears to be a replica of the Twister Special down to every detail with the exception of the sticker on the quarter.

It would be interesting to see if this animal exist. It appears this is a live product or was. 2 years ago I had a chance to buy a Twister for 16,000 and I LET work get in the way...didn't go buy it...and been kicking myself since. If CJ's says it lived...then I guess I'm gonna believe it.

I had a keeper Cougar...XR7 1970/351 car PERFECT interior that I posted in the old cars thread. It only had 35,000 actual miles been parked for 30 years. I got it running and then my buddy at NASA put the convertible up for sale. so the 65 ss and the Cougar had to go. Luke there is a Dan Gourney Special for sale and LOOKS GREAT. 12,000. I'll see if I can find it for you.

LUKEeeee in my best Darth Vader voice.....

I seen a twister special Torino at a auction when I was about 12-13. I thought that orange car was about the coolest thing I ever seen until about a month later when I seen a marina Blue 67 GS 400 now that is a sweet looking car. Had no idea how special either of these cars where until I was about 17 so I sure was happy that I got to see them

I passed on a 68 Shelby vert in 98 for $4500. It had all the original parts but needed some love. Lots of great cares that most of us passed on because we can't see into the future.

Bright lime 72 Mach 1 with 351C 4V, with summit 600 carb(have a Holley too), Edelbrock dual-plane manifold, Hooker headers, 3 inch exhaust with flowmasters, 17 inch Eleanor wheels, FMX tranny, A/C, P/S, front disks and 350 rear gear. Drive it to work every day.

Well it appears ole Luke may just stumble on a prize. I sure hope so. I guess I'd rather pass on one, not knowing...than to OWN ONE and give it away which I've done on 1 occasion maybe 3

1960 Impala 348 factory 4spd
1964 Galaxie 390 bucket seats console
1956 Chebbie which received the 348 and 4spd from the Impala. So you can say I ruined one great car to build another great car and lost it due to being poor.

I sure hope it isn't a Unicorn. It would be sweet to find one. I found one car that as far as I know is known only by me and maybe 1 person outside the family. IF the old lady sells I WILL pursue it like a hawk. I want it bad enough that I've paced back and forth on whether to trade them my convertible!!!

a two owner 39 Ford Coupe. Its not a Twister or Mach I but one fine fine car. It is in such good condition, I ask the lady "when was it restored" and she responded "Honey that car is all original". they bought it back in the 70's from the original owner.

So here's to the you capturing a highly respected find. beer
