Solid Patriot: 1976 Dodge Dart

It was 1976, and an enormous number of companies jumped on the “bicentennial bandwagon” and tapped into the naturally patriotic spirit of the American people. I mean, who could blame them? An opportunity like that only comes along every…um,… more»

Original Paint: 1976 Plymouth Duster

The Claret Red paint and the distinctive side stripes are part of the giveaway that this 1976 Plymouth is a Silver Duster. As Plymouth were preparing to replace the by then aging Duster model, they chose to introduce a… more»

50K Mile Survivor: 1978 AMC Concord D/L

We have seen quite a few AMC Concords here over the last few years and I always find it interesting that AMC felt a need to make what was basically a luxurious Hornet. This first-year car, a 1978 AMC… more»

Revived After 35 Years: 1930 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan

After sitting largely forgotten for 35-years after the previous owner passed away, this 1930 Ford Model A has been revived, and it is looking for someone to complete the restoration that was commenced all those years ago. The car… more»

Rust-Free Survivor: 1980 Triumph TR7 Drophead

The Triumph TR7 is a car that I find interesting because it was never intended to be released in convertible form. When the company finally yielded to buyer demand and followed that path, the resulting car turned out to… more»

Affordable Muscle: 1969 Corvette Stingray

Usually, when we see a C3 Corvette in nice driveable shape, most car enthusiasts (myself included) think that it’s way out of reach in today’s muscle car market. However, in this case, those people would be incorrect. Don’t believe… more»

Save A Classic: 1964 Buick Sport Wagon Vista

Low Mileage Turbo: 1988 Saab 900 SPG

Survivor Sedan: 1985 AMC Eagle

While the AMC Eagle Wagon tends to grab much of the spotlight, the Eagle sedan is just as interesting (if not more so) for being an American sedan with 4WD in an era when Audi hadn’t yet found its… more»

Drive It As Is! 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1

Finding a running, driving project car is always a plus, and while this 1970 Mustang Mach 1 might not be ready to drive across, the country, the owner feels that there is no reason why you couldn’t drive it… more»

Round Light Coupe: 1976 Volvo 242 DL

Enzo’s Own: 1962 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2
