My buddy and I drove 18,000 miles round the USA last summer, 4000 miles of it in a 1972 Pontiac Catalina Safari station wagon I bought on eBay from a dealer in Peru, Illinois. Continue reading
I have this 1961 Chevrolet Impala SS convertible so I can recall old times with my wife. We love to take it out for a cruise or just to relive our youth. Continue reading
In 1956, brothers Frank and John Balzano of Bristol, Rhode Island, purchased a 1956 Ford Victoria. John worked in the body shop of the Ford dealership were it was purchased. He was a master metal worker. Continue reading
I’ve always wanted a big block 4-speed Chevelle since I was a young kid. I would always see an awesome Chevelle go up and down Central Ave in Yonkers as a young kid.
I sold a couple of Camaros to move up to a Chevelle. One being an ’87 IROC and another being a ’69 Z-28. Both were great cars but as I said, I always loved Chevelles.
My Chevelle is a 396/350 hp 4 speed with air conditioning and tilt wheel, power steering, power brakes, and deluxe bucket seat interior. The all original sheet metal is in its original color, Azure Turquoise.
I have won many awards ( best of shows and people’s choice at local shows ), as well as best Chevy at Musclepoolosa, the Chevy invitational at GM Nationals and at the Greenwich concours d’elegance.

A couple of years ago I was attending the Turkey Rod Run in Daytona Beach. This is an annual classic car show with thousands of cars from around the country.
While at the show, the people from Classic Chevy Magazine approached me and said they had selected my car to do a photo shoot and write a feature article on my car. I personally thought that was quite an honor due to the many beautiful Tri Five cars at the show. Continue reading
It took almost 50 years and a build team of nine, but I once again am the proud owner of a 1940 Ford Deluxe coupe. I owned one back in high school and, though many years had passed, I never forgot how much I loved my first car.
It’s no surprise that when my childhood friend, Larry Seabert, owner of Tech-Ni-Kolor Autocrafters in Dwight, Illinois, found a 1940 Ford Deluxe coupe in a barn in 2007, his first thought was to call his friend and ask if he would like to have his old car back. Continue reading
