1957 Chevy Stepside - Louis Vuitton

I bought this truck off my cousin who had fixed it up and drove it for eight years. Since then we redid everything, new paint, new wood treatment in back, custom interior with Louis Vuitton accents, and power everything. The 20” wheels are supported by a 1972 Chevy half-ton front clip.


1965 Chevy II Silver Sled

It is a 1965 Chevy II 400 hardtop with new quarters, trunk, and fenders from Classic Industries as well as the complete interior kit. Much of the small trim pieces and chrome have been purchased from Classic as well. It has a 355 small block with 11.5:1 compression and dart heads, with an Edelbrock air gap intake and Holley 670 four barrel carb. A B&M TH350 transmission with 10 bolt Eaton posi rear end transfers all that power quite well. It has coil over suspension front and rear with four link in the back. There are disc brakes in the front. It uses Hooker fenderwell headers and a three-inch exhaust system. The Chevy II is lowered around 2-1/2 inches all around on weld wheels.

1969 Pontiac Firebird 400 Convertible - Heavy Rollin' Ragtop

My Firebird was built in Norwood, Ohio. The original color was Verduro Green. She sports a power top, power disc brakes, rally gauges, standard interior with a wood grain steering wheel, and dash face. The engine's backed by a Turbo 400 transmission, 2,800-rpm stall converter, with all that torque transferred to 3.42 gears stuffed in a 10-bolt rear end that was donated from a 79 Trans Am. The engine is the factory, numbers matching 400 that has been stroked & bored to 468 cubic inches of V8 power. The hydraulic roller cams have .623 degrees of lift and .240 duration. The Edelbrock cylinder heads and intake have been ported. There's also a beaudacious 950 cfm Holley four-barrel carb, two-inch Doug's headers, forged steel rods, forged pistons and nitrided crank in the mix for this prodigious mill. As far as the numbers go, the engine has 11.0:1 compression, makes 600-horsepower and 640-lb.-ft. of torque on 91 octane pump fuel. The paint scheme is the LeMans Blue hue from a 2006 Corvette.

1973 Pontiac Firebird T/A with Numbers Matching factory "Y" code 455

Bruce Johnson's 1973 Pontiac Trans Am was a labor of love and family support. He bought the car in Detroit and moved it to Texas. Securing the car was the easy part. In the year that he has had the car, he and his family have had the original, numbers matching "Y" code 455 rebuilt and slightly modified with an earlier model cam and exhaust manifolds. He also added an aluminum intake and HEI ignition. The car had been stored for 18 years. Since the paint was tired, Bruce had the entire exterior re-painted with new decals. New suspension components followed, and finally he got down to business changing out the maroon interior to black, with the help of Classic Industries. He ordered new seat covers, carpet, and headliner from Classic to complete the makeover.

1968 Chevy Camaro SS - Cruisin' Route 66 in an SS

Here is a picture from the recent Route 66 Rendezvous Car Show in San Bernardino, CA. We had a lot of fun that day on 6th St with a lot of lookers. Plus the new bumpers and grill from Classic Industries finished off the car great.

1971 Chevrolet Camaro RS - Super Clean Gen 2


1958 Chevrolet Impala - Big Bling Beauty

I bought the car in 1988 from the estate of the original owner. The car at that time was 30 years old and only had 62,000 miles. There were a few things that needed fixing, like he had spilled brake fluid down the driver's rear quarter panel so that needed a repaint. He had Astroturf in the trunk, which was funky, so I bought a new trunk mat. I had the brakes rebuilt, a complete tune-up, and new tires. I had to replace the water pump and thermostat along with all the hoses under the hood. At first, I installed bias ply repro tires but they drove so badly that I just recently changed to radials. I had to replace a tail light lens which he had broken. Currently, the car has just over 90,000 on the clock. The valve covers have never been off the engine. Now for that brief description. It is a Bel Air Impala sport coupe. It was built in Los Angeles. It is paint code 930A, which the factory calls SILVER BLUE METALLIC, and it has the multi-stripe blue interior. It has the 348 cu. in. V8 engine, power steering and brakes, powerglide transmission, AM radio, and standard heater. It has the rare vinyl dash covering in blue to match the interior. At least 50% of the exterior paint is factory. The entire front grill, bumper, and trim is factory. I have had the rear bumper rechromed. The interior is all factory.

1969 Chevy Camaro Z/28 RS - Found In Pieces

Keith Woolverton of Choctaw, Oklahoma, rescued this 1969 Camaro Z/28 from a field, where it had been disassembled and was in pieces when he found it. It took Keith about a year to complete the frame-off restoration. A journey that has been well worth it.

It has been in Hot Rod, Car Craft, Chevy High Performance and Super Chevy over the years. After sitting with a dead motor for 5 years we got the beast back together a week before the Good-Guys 2nd OC Get-Together and ran it on the Street Challenge Autocross course. Nick Licata – Super Chevy/Camaro Performers Test Driver took it through the cones for a 18.66 second run!

1957 Chevy 3200 - The Perfect Pickup for 3 Surf Grommets

The old car hobby is filled with great stories of father/son builds, family projects, and cars passed down from parents to kids. In many cases the vehicle that is passed down winds up becoming a mechanical member of the family. Old cars and trucks are much more than just family heirlooms. You can get in an automobile and have adventures in it. Take family trips. Even just take a jaunt to the grocery store for some milk and cookies. The family car is a trusty steed that you can rely upon to deliver freedom, adventure, and food for goodness sakes! It's no wonder then that when this trusty companion becomes time worn, the family wants to renew it and keep it on the road, as opposed to selling it off and abandoning it. 

Photo Gallery: 2023 Grand National Roadster Show (GNRS)

If you didn't attend or participate in the 73rd O'Reilly Auto Parts Grand National Roadster Show, you missed out big time! The GNRS is one of the oldest and most phenomenal classic car shows in the world. It's held in California, which is considered by many to be mecca for the automobile, at the Pomona Fairplex. There are two top prizes awarded at this prestigious event. The nation's top roadsters vying for the America's Most Beautiful Roadster (AMBR) prize were sublime. Non-roadster vehicles competing for the Al Slonaker Memorial Award were rolling, running works of art. All of the cars and trucks at the event would be held in high esteem in any car geeks garage, or the envy of any motorhead on the planet. 

1971 Chevrolet Caprice - This Rose Has No Thorns


They're almost shrouded in mystery, which is a bit strange when you consider the stature of a donk. Questions like what does donk mean, and what is it named after? Who originated this restomod sort of highly customized machine? Where were they first created, gain popularity, and spread to for achieving an ever-growing sort of following? As impossible as it may be to believe, none of these queries yield definitive, matter of fact answers. With one exception... the vast majority of donk enthusiasts cite South Florida in the latter 1980's into the 1990's as the birthplace of the donk.
