SEPTEMBER 2014: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN RADIO STATIONS GET SUED? . . . SOMEBODY GETS A WOODY

49- igp2822The rule is pretty simple: when you spot a 1949 Ford Woody wagon at a car show, you move mountains to find the owner.

Actually, you just need patience and some help from car guys parked near the Woody owner to point out the guy at the earliest possible opportunity.

It took about 3 hours to finally track down the owner of the beautiful 1949 Woody resto-mod and it was well worth the effort.

SEPTEMBER 2014: A NON-FACTORY VISION FOR A 1960 PLYMOUTH BELVEDERE CONVERTIBLE

60-imgp2227Jeff Rallison is a huge fan of the Exner era Mopars.

He's worked on a fleet of these finned beauties over the years and he's always had a personal vision for these cars that extends into the finished version.

SEPTEMBER 2014: 1961 CHRYSLER WINDSOR – SOME GOOD THINGS COME OUT OF DIVORCE

61-imgp3188The 1961 Chryslers represented the last of the fin era at Chrysler.

SEPTEMBER 2014: 1972 FORD CONVERTIBLE – OVER 40 YEARS AND STILL SURVIVING

72-imgp3841Full-sized convertibles from the 1970s had a high casualty rate for many reasons.

Many of them were built during a recession and that is lethal to quality standards.

Another reason is the smog-era stigma attached to most 70s iron if it doesn't have Cuda or GTO on the name plate.

Despite the odds, this '72 Ford convertible easily survived the sensational 70s.
