Default Sleeper

Here's the closest thing to a sleeper I have... it's a little grandma looking 62 ChevyII wagon we've had since the early 90's. When we bought it, it was totally original and belonged to a little old lady who bought it new and she had recently passed away when we got it. It had 16,xxx actual miles on it when we got it (yeah you read that right). My wife drove it as a daily driver before we had kids but once the 1st kid came along we discovered the door lock requiring the key to lock it was hassle with a baby in your arms (along with all the stuff that goes along with babies) so it was parked for a newer style daily driver. Over the years, I converted it to 5 lugs with disc brakes up front and ditched the 194 6cyl and 3 speed. It now has an old school stroked SBC in it with a TKO600 5 speed and a Ford 9" under the back. Best it ran at the track the few times I took it was a 11.77 at 117 mph in the 1/4 mile.

I don't get it out as much over the last several years but it's a hoot to drive when I do.

Oh and it still has less than 50,xxx miles on it

Great looking wagon. Darn good performance for a grocery getter.

Default My sleeper

This is my shop truck sleeper. 85 s10 with a 91 5.0 HO ford. Have owned this truck sense new. Was originally a 2.5 4speed. Lots more fun this way. Gets a lot of double takes and comments at CruiseIn. By the way that is rust not paint.
