My Classic Car: Ernie’s 1959 Pontiac Parisienne

My Classic Car: Ernie’s 1959 Pontiac Parisienne

I was a lonely person because I worked all the time at Mohawk Auto Square in Calgary, Alberta Canada. Changing tires and oil. Having just graduated from St. Francis High School, I had no idea where I was headed and needed gas money for my car my dad had bought me. It was a 1959 […]

My Classic Car: Roger’s 1974 Mercury Cougar XR7

My Classic Car: Roger’s 1974 Mercury Cougar XR7

I was looking for some kind of pickup truck, but in a car lot in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, there was this Big Cat! All that was the matter was rusty wire hubcaps and its brown color. Not my favorite but it turns out the paint was original. I was greeted by the lot’s salesman and he […]

My Classic Car: John’s 1959 Holden Special

It wasn’t my car, it was my Dad’s Holden. I had my license for a couple of years and my Dad bought this Holden. I’d had an old 1948 Morris 8 which was just a heap. It cost me $35 to buy and hundreds to keep it on the road. Dad got this Holden Special […]

The car […]

My Classic Car: Jose’s 1962 Volkswagen Beetle

My first car was a 1953 Volkswagen Beetle (6-volt) that my father bought me when I was 20 years old. I enjoyed my time driving that small car. I liked it so much that my next car was a 1966 Beetle, which was my favorite. The car came with a 1600-cc engine but a friend […]

My Classic Car: Merv’s ‘wrong number’ 1969 Pontiac Firebird

In mid-August 2014, I was shopping online for a 1969 Pontiac Firebird and called a local British Columbia classic car dealer about a ’67 Firebird. The person I talked to was Mike, the owner of the dealership. He informed me that he had an offer on the car and he would know by 10 a.m. […]

My Classic Car: Rachelle’s 1954 EMW 327/3

My Classic Car: Rachelle’s 1954 EMW 327/3

We, as decent human beings, have a need to sympathize with the under dog, the wounded, so to speak. Just imagine life after WW II. A relatively small BMW car manufacturing plant finds itself on the wrong side of the divide. East Germany emerges as a Soviet state, dictated by Communism. West Germany is controlled […]

My Classic Car: John’s 1955 Chevrolet 210

When I first tried driving, my father had a ’55 Chevy. I would watch him drive and figured I could do that. The car had your common three on the tree. This was around 1964. I was 14 at the time. The car had a key lock so you could take the key out without […]
