    I remember seeing those around when they first came out . Yeah if I could only go back in time to slap myself for selling a 58 Mercury turnpike cruiser ! The car was a tank with everything electric , windows and rear window etc., it even had an ashtray where you could put a cig in it ,press a switch and it would suck the cig into a jar of water under the hood .I also sold a Ford retractable hardtop for dirt cheap !

    Back in the day on Redondo Pier I knew one of the original long rangers name of Joe Hill. He was a Roadrunner dude.

    Personally, I'da rather had his collection of Trulines... :D

    Never saw an ashtray like that. Do you know how it worked? Was it from engine vacuum ? Seen alot of weird stuff on older cars , but never that. I saw a car with a record player in it. The old push button trans cars were pretty cool too. I work on a oldsmobile from the late 70s that had air bags.

    1976 Toyota Landcruiser FJ40. My first car when I was 16. Primo condition, mustard yellow. That thing would go anywhere, just not in a hurry. Damn I wish I still had that rig.

    From what I remember, the push buttons trans had a lever that you had to slide to put it in park. Almost like a heater control lever. Vagly remember the reverb system. I cant remember the car that had the record player. I want to say it was an olds, but not posative. Saw it at a car show. Remember the Mopars with the air grabber hoods. The hood looked normal until you pulled a lever under the dash and a scoop popped uo out of the hood. The scoop had sharks teeth on the sides. Who ever designed that shit was a wizzard

    Uncle has a 69 Roadrunner with a 454 he has been working on over the years. Whenever the neighbors across the street were having a loud party he would fire it up. No exhaust past the headers :D
