I had a 62 Catalina once. It was plum in color. I bought it at an estate sale from a little old lady who drove it to church, it only had 45,000 miles on it.

What a great roadtrip car, I could fit EIGHT kids in it.........

Hillman, Sunbeam, Belair, Simca.....where are they now?

Imagine it's 2020. How many of today's brands will still be around?

I've had it for 15 years, out started out as a street car, turned into a racecar, now its a cool streetcar I can drive anywhere





I couldn't stand only being able to drive it at the racetrack, so I built this one





These two keep me busy, gonna work on the racecar today...

72 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme is my favorite car
