My Classic Car: Robert’s 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle

My Classic Car: Robert’s 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle

  I bought my car as a ” work in progress.” I had wanted a classic Chevelle for a long time. I used to have a ’77 Malibu ( I traded it in the ’90′s ). I got the opportunity to buy another car at Charlotte Motor Speedway in September 2013. I picked up a […]

My Classic Car: Don’s 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC

My Classic Car: Don’s 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC

In the spring of 1998, Ford Motor Company painted 117 Lincoln Mark VIIIs in metallic gold and called them Spring Feature Cars. All were to be the base models. However, somehow ours slipped through as a LSC. This is the top of the line and the only one like it. How much more rare can […]

My Classic Car: Mike’s 1956 Buick Special

My Classic Car: Mike’s 1956 Buick Special

I had owned a 1956 Buick Special when I was sophomore in college. It was a slick car and I kept it until my senior year. I wish I never sold it and I am looking to find it again, but I do not know where to start. If I can’t find the same car, […]

My Classic Car: The Faris brothers’ 6.3 Mercedes (5 of them)

My Classic Car: The Faris brothers’ 6.3 Mercedes (5 of them)

I like Mercedes-Benz sedans. I have a 500 SEL and a 560 SEL, so I’d been looking for a 6.3 when my brother, Scott, called me out of the blue. He found a local ad in Fort Collins, Colorado, for five of these cars. I said he needed to go look at them — Now! […]

My Classic Car: Fox family’s 1969 Pontiac Trans Am

My Classic Car: Fox family’s 1969 Pontiac Trans Am

This story started in 1994. I had heard that dealership that was close by was selling out and closing the doors. Someone had told me that they had some old Pontiac dealer signs that they were going to sell. I have been a sign collector for a long time and had a soft spot in […]

My Classic Car: Rod’s 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air

My Classic Car: Rod’s 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air

My ’57 Chevy came to me after a few “horse trades” in the late 1960s. I bought a ’63 Pontiac Grand Prix 421 NASCAR-optioned car and played with it for a while. Man was that a super car! Then one of my buddies on leave from Vietnam had spotted a ’62 Chevy Bel Air hardtop […]

My Classic Car: Justin’s, and now Joe’s, 1979 Ford Ranchero

My Classic Car: Justin’s, and now Joe’s, 1979 Ford Ranchero

We bought our Ranchero as a second car for my son Justin when he was in his second year of high school. He had it for about three days and came home upset because as he said, “Dad someone keyed the whole left side of the Ranchero!” I went out and looked at it and […]

My Classic Car: Glen’s 1964 Pontiac Parisienne convertible

My Classic Car: Glen’s 1964 Pontiac Parisienne convertible

There is a reason I am supposed to own this car. Spring, 1979, friends are talking about a friend of a friend, etc. who is looking at buying a car in St. James. It is a ’64 Pontiac ragtop. My brother had one and I always liked it. They gave the location during this conversation […]

My Classic Car: Bill’s 1953 Chevrolet

My very first car was a 1954 Chevrolet sport coupe, purchased from a funeral home owner in 1965 with 465 miles on the odo. It was robin-egg blue with power windows and a power bench seat, 235 inline six with two-speed automatic. The car was totaled in a freak accident in 1970. I really missed […]

My Classic Car: The Velveteens’ 1958 Ford Fairlane Skyliner

My Classic Car: The Velveteens’ 1958 Ford Fairlane Skyliner

Pretty weird to be reading classiccars.com, scroll down through the stories and see a photo taken in 1962 of myself and my fellow members of “The Velveteens.” I don’t even remember sending this to this website but someone did, so here it is! Funny, this was taken during a Christmas Parade in Riviera Beach, Florida, […]
