Land Yachts

As a kid in the late 70’s to early 80’s we used to buy some old land yachts. We’d yank the engines, re-cam them, replace the rings, in essence give them some serious performance boosts.

But the cars were always what we referred to as boats. They looked like boats, they handled like boats, you get the general idea. Most of what we played with was 60’s and early 70’s vintage. But I found these shots of a true land yacht.

We have here a 1953

Then a 1953 White El Dorado

  1. My first car in 1976 was a tourquis ford galaxy 500 four dorr. It had a 289 engine in it that ran like a top, it was a fun car to drive and you could really pack the teen agers into it.
