I am the kid that you see thru the windshield and standing on the side of the road.

That Dodge Régent was built by Réjean Doucet from Trois-Rivières in about 1965-66. He build many ''muscle cars" on the same theme: two door coach, rear whell opening, Cadillac tire (biggest tire size of the time), big engine of course and and always standard shift.

He was a carburetor guru, the guy who ''fine tune'' the muscle cars of the sixties and seventies, Hemi, six-pack, 427, 454....never see him working on a Ford!!

Réjean never took pictures of the cars he owned. I clearly remember seeing his brother-in-law taking the pics I post with a Polaroid camera. I made copies of these Polaroid pics about 30 years ago.

Last time I see Réjean, he was goofing around in a Z04.

30 years ago, when I asked Rejean what happened to the car, he laughed and said that he just sell it and start to work on the next one!

The next one was a '55 Oldsmobile coach with a J-2 engine, standard trans, radiused wheel wells, a black interior from a GM big luxury car.

He painted the Olds in 1967. The paint color was ''prune'', a 1967 Grande Parisienne color.

 

In fact, I bought a ''prune'' Grande Parisienne in about 1994 to exchange to my brother for his 1968 Belvedere 2 doors sedan.

At that time, my son had a 1968 GTX....and my daughter a 1973 Plymouth Scamp.....and.... and.... LOL
