Arizona 8-Seater: 1972 Checker Marathon A11

  Taxi!! Do people even yell for taxis anymore? I would think that it’s mostly done by phone or app now, or maybe by waving a hand in the air or being in the right place at the right… more»

28k Genuine Mile: 1978 Pontiac Catalina Safari Wagon

21,000 Original Miles: 1996 Ford Mustang Cobra SVT

This 1996 Ford Mustang Cobra checks a lot of boxes as a desirable, limited production specimen. The Cobra of this generation marked a significant leap forward, with a hand-assembled, DOHC V8 churning out a healthy 305 b.h.p. This clean… more»

Parade Car Perfect: 1970 Plymouth Fury III Convertible

Late ’60s/early ’70s Chevy convertibles turn up all of the time. Ford products? Not too often. Mopars? A rarity! And that’s why I was thrilled to stumble across this beautiful 1970 Plymouth Fury III convertible. Not only is it… more»

Just 17k Miles: 1976 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale

Remember the old ads that proclaimed “this is not your father’s Oldsmobile”? While that campaign backfired a bit on the carmaker, I kind of think this generation of 88’s was designed for an older audience. These were big, somewhat… more»

Slant Six! 1974 Dodge Dart Swinger

The Dodge Dart (and its corporate sibling the Plymouth Valiant) were successful compact cars in the ‘60s and ‘70s. They were reliable, economical transportation and Chrysler sold a ton of them. If you had one with the Slant Six… more»

Triple Matching R-Series: 1967 BMW R50/2

BMW’s R50 motorcycle is a timeless design, seemingly trapped between eras as a wartime machine and one of the predominant grand touring bikes of the 1950s. Its long production span certainly contributed to that, stretching from 1955 to 1969…. more»

No Back Seat: 1947 Plymouth Business Coupe

Business coupes (also known as businessmen coupes) were popular in the ‘40s and ‘50s as a lower cost way to buy a new car. Because they came as 2-door sedans with either no backseat or a removeable one, they… more»

Real Highboy Survivor! 1975 Ford F-250

Back in the mid-1970s, Ford 3/4-ton pickups were built for work. They featured a lifted suspension from the factory giving them the nickname “Highboy” along with 8-lug axles and a heavy-duty drive train. This one is from 1975 and… more»
