You could actually "cruise" those 70's cars. Advance the timing one or two degrees. Punch the gas then let off the gas pedal and go a long ways on the fumes the days of cruising are gone with electronic ignition and computer sensors. The closest I get get now is with a trailer loaded with several tons, but it's not the same.Yep, right on! And we all chipped in for a couple gal of gas to ride around on Fri night.
And no $100 car keys.
I had an old 68 ford PU that I traded some stuff for. It had a button clutch, the strangest thing when that clutch hit the flywheel you knew it... Bam, It would jerk you and put your head against the back window. If you hit it just right it would lift the front tires off the ground. I never could figure out why that truck threw flames out of the exhaust pipes when you would get on it in second and third gears. It was quite impressive and scary at the same time.
After bleach burning through a set of rear tires and two tickets. I sold it back to the guy I traded it for. That truck was nothing but plain trouble for a young guy like me. I seem to recall pulling up to the gas station and filling up on oil and checking the gas.
