In 1996, I was dating a guy who had a ‘73 Charger SE sitting dormant in his driveway. When I went to his house for the first time, it was love at first sight for me. Not with him, with the car. The Charger was purchased by him in 1995 from Chrysler’s at Carlisle for his ex wife who didn’t want it, so in his driveway it sat until I came along. I was captivated by the curves and sleek lines of this...

In 1982, I went to Pittsburgh, from Eastern Long Island, to look at a 1949 Mercury and it was not a successful adventure. The car was misrepresented. My friend and I stayed over and while having breakfast, my friend read a car newspaper and found an ad for a Mercury. Circleville Ohio was just another 7 hours so off we went. Awaiting us at our destination was a large collection of all sorts of...

I was pinned under the front of my 1969 Ford Galaxie, when I accidently knocked her out of gear, while underneath changing oil….. the back-end of the car went over the first level of our terraced back yard, and I was drug along underneath the car directly behind the front wheel….the only thing that saved my life was the CREEPER I was on, otherwise the front driver’s wheel (with all the weight of...

I rebuilt my first engine – a flathead V-8 on a 1949 Ford in 1959 when I was 15 years old. I drove that car for five years, then selling it as a young adult. Cars were always a big interest of mine and I usually did my own routine maintenance and minor repairs. Some of my favorite cars during my young adulthood included a ‘67 Mustang and a ‘68 British MGB. But because of a very busy career coupled...

In 2016, I had just finished a shop upgrade. My previous shop was just big enough to irritate me during use, & well, do you really need another reason for a bigger shop? My wife & I had discussed several times me having a hobby, you know something to keep me busy (the good busy) during my free time. I had built RC Cars & Planes in the past & really seemed to enjoy the build process more than the...

I bought a 1981 Chevrolet C10 short box pickup, after my son died. He had one like it, and I wanted to build a tribute truck to memorial his life. Things got out of hand with everything and I have never finished it. Jeffrey has been gone since September 2007. I bought a Shafiroff 540, FTI stage 5 turbo 400, Chassisworks fab 9, 35 spline axles , strange pro case center section with 4:30 gears.

I am the proud owner of a 1959 Chevrolet Impala 4-door Sport Sedan. This car is 100% 1959 and has not been modified in any way. Any aftermarket parts are made to original manufacturers specifications. For example the interior is not the original interior however it is an exact match to the original interior as with the headliner. Parts that were replaced came from 1959 donor cars.
