    1970 International Pick up. It was my first rescue. I was 14 and working at a full service gas station in my home town. And this older guy come in with the truck complaining about it, I asked him if he wanted to sell it, he say “yeah, $50 bucks and its yours”. so I went a block down to the bank and pulled the money out of my savings. I took the truck home, cleaned it up, removed the years of smoking smell out of it and sold it 2 weeks later for $250. that was the first of 2 dozen rescues that I have made over the last 30 years and started my selling career.

    My 1967 Chevy II Nova was my first new car and was the car I won my first NHRA drag race with. It came with a 327/275HP engine and a 3-speed manual trans. I upgraded the engine with a solid lifter cam, aluminum hi-rise intake, holley carb, Doug’s Headers, and a Borg-Warner T-10 4-speed trans with a Hurst shifter which rewarded me with several drag racing winner’s trophies. Sadly, I had to sell it when I got drafted into the military during the Vietnam War.

    Man that is a hard one I love so many cars, I guess my favorite all time car that I could actually own some day and have actually driven would be a 1st, 2nd or 3rd generation Camaro. I just have always loved this car and have a reoccurring dream about a white 3rd gen Camaro. Also love all 60’s era muscle cars like the Nova, GTO, Cuda and Chevelle. And would love to own an Aston Martin DB9, but would have to win the lottery for that to happen.

    1982 BMW 320i. I was the second owner. BalticBlau, parchment interior. Wasn’t fast but loved to be stomped on going to the highways. 80mph speedo, math takes over beyond that. Ran from LA almost to San Francisco at 110mph. I had Bilsteins, H&R springs, special ordered Panasport wheels, Hartge strut bar. The rest was oem and gone over. Lower temp switches made it run cool as can be. No matter what car we own we will miss that one the most. Having a stack of wheels and nos parts still for it doesn’t help us to forget.

    1969 Z/28 with the DZ 302. A friend of mine had this when I was growing up. The car was a close ratio M/22 4 speed. It was incredibly fast and darn near indestructible.

    ’59 corvette, red with white coves. When I was about 13 I saw a gorgeous blond driving one with popular song of the time blasting from the radio. It was a warm summer day and she had the top down and flowing in the wind. I’ve wanted one of each ever since.

    For me, it’s the Ford Model A. I have always wanted an antique car, and the Model A is one of the few affordable antiques. I still see them quite often, even as daily drivers. A beautifully simple and relatively bulletproof vehicle, it symbolizes America to me.
