    I bought this new in 1992. F350, 7.3 L IDI Diesel, four-wheel-drive, crew cab, long box, five speed hog leg. It has served many purposes, from Pulling goosenecks, Hauling kids and toys to just bumping around in the woods, It’s been a great truck. It continues to work daily. It is an ongoing project for a couple of months each winter. The frame has been blasted and coated With Eastwood Rust encapsulater And top coated flat black. Four-wheel disc brakes all around by Lugnuts. All new Moog front end components, 4” Rough country suspension lift And steering stabilizer, New steering box from Redhead, fresh meats from Cooper tires, And a 6 foot paint Job by Maaco.. Those are the highlights

    Got this car in 1980 from a junkyard in Montana. No front clip, no floors. 8 years to do original restoration. Recently refreshed taking 2 years. This is the exact model car I had when I met my wife in 1963. Still married to her.

    This started out as a 100% restored car that was bone stock. I took it to the next level as always wanted a 50’s Custom. I did all the Custom work and add ons especially the engine compartment. 292 running an Offy Chrome intake with 3 Real Chromed 2bl. Stromberg carbs. “Baby Blue” as its well known at the local cruises or car shows was dubbed the Trophy Magnet! or better yet Chick Magnet!

    This is one of six 1929 DeSotos known to the National DeSoto Club. “Miss Helen” was built in Oct. of 1928, the 6th week of production of DeSotos by Chrysler. She has won two Concours d’elegance shows and over 50 best in her class awards, and a coupe of best of show awards. I still drive her to a lot of the local shows and local parade’s. She is 10 years older than me and I want to show her when shes 100 years old and I will be 90.

    This car was built by my father in law Ralph Meeker in the mid 70’s. He found the car in a junkyard fo $200. It was totally restored in 1976, and was customized to the standards back in the day to be shown in numerous ISCA AUTO RAMAS, and won many awards. My wife and I have the car now, after his passing oin 2014. It was in his garage for many years and we brought it back to life.

      This is our 1969 Shelby GT500. We acquired is on Summer, 2017. The seller had spent 6 years fully restoring the Shelby, and it is in near perfect condition. Pretty much every parts is either original, or oem. The non-oem parts include Halogen headlights (but they do have the FoMoCo brand log), one interior illumination light bezel, and the side glass and carriers which were converted to 1970 bolth-through style hardware as opposed to the “better idea that wasn’t” glue-in channel design.

    I bought this car in 2012, from a farm yard auction. It was sold new and delivered in Sept ’62. to Saskatchewan, Canada. It spent most of its time parked, we are sure. It was the 544th. body produced in Oshawa , Ont. It had 8,000 miles when I got it and as I have moved across Canada and back it now has 22,000 miles on it.

    This car was a barn find in 2007, with 8000 miles on it. It is a Canadian Strato Chief. The body has little body work done around the rear wheel openings and the bottom rear edges of the front fenders. The chassis is still all original except for springs. I drove the car for four years and then did the body work and paint, addition of the SD scoop and Legendary Interior. It now has a 350V8, Muncie M22 trans and 3:73 gear set. It was an early production car shipped in September 1962.

    Bought my ’70 Roadrunner on 1/26/71 brand new off the lot when I hitchhiked 60 miles from my home in Lancaster,Ca. to Burbank,Ca. I had to do a lot of hassling with the salesman to pick it up for $2719 ,since he didn’t know that it was my only ride home. Final kicker was that they couldn’t sell the color (plum crazy) on the weekend sale,lol.

    The Daimler Limousine was the last of the coach built Limousines – favoured by European royalty.
    These were powered by the straight 6 XK engine that was used in Jaguar and Daimler cars from the 50s through to the 90s – probably most famously in E types (Jaguar XKE), mated to a GM400 auto transmission/
    After this Limousines were just stretched versions of ordinary cars such as Mercedes, Jaguar, Volvo, Cadillac or Lincoln.

    I bought this car in 2007 with 8000miles on it. It was quite nice but needed restoration which was completed by my friend John over a year and a half, with minor body work fresh paint, a new Legendary Interior, and a motor transplant. The chassis is mostly original ‘cept for the spring. I have it documented from the day of production and just enjoy owning this car so much!

    1966 Ford Galaxie 500. Shaved door handles & mirrors. Original built 390 ci FE motor, 9″ 3:83 Detroit/Eaton Tru-trac rear end with launch control (for cool burnouts). Stumbled on it a mile from my house – guy just got home from the Woodward Ave cruise put a for sale sign in it for 5 minutes while relaxing in a lawn chair with his girl friend as I drove by. Next day I saw him and asked about it and he says how did you know it was for sale? Sign was in the car for 5 minutes as a joke. Rest is history.
