APRIL 2013: A 1962 PONTIAC LE MANS CONVERTIBLE: "LOOKING FOR SOMETHING UNIQUE"
Carol and John Meyer own a 1962 Pontiac Le Mans convertible for two very good reasons: They wanted something a little different from the mainstream collector car market and they wanted something from 1962 because they were married in 1962.
The fact that their 1962 Poncho drop top was one of the most gawked-at cars at a large show was just an added bonus.
John was happy to fill in the blanks on the Le Mans because it was an unusual model from the General in 1962.
APRIL 2013 A WILD 1989 VOLVO- A CLARK KENT CAR WITH A BIG SURPRISE UNDER THE HOOD
240 model Volvos are not the stuff of car guy dreams. They look like something that should have a front door where you can grab a beer out of them and it is a scientific fact that chicks do not dig these cars.
They were the movie cars driven by suburban housewives and eccentric left wing professors during their long run as a bland and functional ride.
Volvo produced a few interesting cars like the 544 and P-1800, but interesting is not a label that can be easily applied to a 240 series Volvo-until we ran into this 1989 Volvo 245 at a car show.
APRIL 2013 A 1968 BUICK SPORT WAGON IS A RARE VISITOR TO ANY CAR SHOW
The Buick Sport Wagon was a first cousin of the more famous Olds Vista Cruiser and there was reason to confuse the two luxury wagons from the General.
They both had the famous raised roof that had a skylight built into the roofline.
They also had a cool factor built into the un-cool station wagon formula from days of yore.
APRIL 2013:THIS 1965 CHEVY IMPALA SS CONVERTIBLE IS THE PERFECT RESTORATION
Those of us from a certain age remember a golden era of TV that included 'Bonanza' in the Sunday night lineup. The Cartwright boys were the toast of Virginia City and rode into town from their sprawling Ponderosa Ranch many times over their long TV run.
They rode magnificent horses during the series, including a beautiful Pinto owned by hot-headed Little Joe Cartwright.
There was one time the Cartwright boys showed up with a few TV friends like Samantha (Bewitched) Stevens and Napoleon (Man from UNCLE) Solo in frontier Virginia City with a different kind of transportation: the 1965 model lineup from Chevrolet.
MARCH 2013: 1923 MODEL T-HOW TO BUILD A CLASSIC T-BUCKET IN RECORD TIME
There's a constant in any car project that basically comes down to the measurement of time. Time is measured in glacial movement terms, not average lifespan of a human being terms.
Nobody picks up a welding torch for the first time in his life and builds a classic 1923 Model T-bucket in three months.
Nobody except Derrick Anderson.
