Hurricane Victim: 1963 Pontiac LeMans Convertible

I’ve got to start by thanking the seller for being upfront about his honest representation of this 1963 Pontiac LeMans Convertible and stating right off the bat that the car had an encounter with Hurricane Ian back in September. … more»

455/Doug Nash 5-Speed! 1974 Pontiac Firebird Formula

Based on nothing but appearance, the 1974 model is among my favorites of the second-generation Firebirds in the looks department, maybe because it was the last year before the back window gained the side glass, plus it still had… more»

White Hat Special? 1969 Dodge Charger

One of my favorite nearby neighborhood eateries has a Blue Plate Special, a different daily offering with a particular dish served at a discounted price.  Monday is my favorite, as it’s turkey and dressing, and although the meal is… more»

Rare Fox Body: 1984 Ford Mustang SVO

The Ford Mustang SVO is one of the rarer ones when it comes to Fox bodies, with fewer than 10,000 examples produced during the car’s short run from 1984 through 1986.  With that aggressive hood scoop and snarky front… more»

Hot 440! 1971 Plymouth GTX

8k Mile Ex-Racer! 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS

Elegant Hemi: 1956 DeSoto Fireflite Convertible

One of the Chrysler makes that doesn’t seem to get quite as much attention as some of the others is their DeSoto division, which began producing vehicles all the way back in 1929.  Many of these offerings were mid-priced… more»

Sort Of Original: 1967 Chevelle SS Convertible
