1968 Firebird - Drop-Top Perfection

There seems to be a bit of a stigma about owning a convertible these days -- some people just don't consider them to be as cool as a hardtop coupe. However, we'd like to take a moment to defend the merits of the convertible.

1962 Chevy Impala - Cream of the Crop

If you're a car enthusiast, especially a classic car enthusiast, you'll no doubt know that air suspension can be a controversial modification.

2013 Camaro ZL1 - Modern Muscle

As classic car enthusiasts, we tend to be skeptical of modern cars. After all, we love the cars of the '60s and '70s, and a lot has changed since that golden age of muscle cars. Back then, designers stuck to a simple formula: big-displacement V8 engines, alloy wheels with wide tires, aggressive flared bodywork, and bright paint colors that screamed performance. Thankfully, this formula is still alive and well in the … Continue reading »






'64 Valiant Convertible - Perky Plymouth

One of the things we love about classic cars is their wide range of variation in shapes, sizes, and styles. Some classic cars appear aggressive and muscular, with wide flared fenders and gaping grill openings, while others appear poised and refined, with intricate chrome ornaments and sweeping lines. If we had to use a single word to describe this 1964 Plymouth Valiant, that word would be cheerful. The wide-set round headlights, bright red … Continue reading »

As car enthusiasts, we tend to think of our vehicles as much more than a simple mode of transportation—to us, they're rolling works of art.

Every car or truck has a purpose, a role it was designed to fulfill. As for this 1961 Impala SS … Continue reading »






'69 Pontiac Firebird - Ahead of Schedule

If you've ever restored a car, you know that setting an accurate timeline for the project can be a difficult task. Everyone starts out ambitious, excited, and ready to complete the build as soon as possible. Then, nine times out of ten, life gets in the way. Often, the car gets rolled into a garage or covered up, not to see the light of day for years at a time. … Continue reading »






'67 Camaro SS/RS - Immaculate Drop-Top

When you've got a classic car you truly care about, keeping it clean is a never-ending labor of love. It gets dusted, washed, waxed, buffed, and polished, until you're painfully aware of every last imperfection. Some of us spend hours meticulously polishing the chrome, or detailing the interior, until our significant others complain that we don't even give them this much attention. Tim Bair, of Huntington Beach, California, is obsessed with … Continue reading »
