Do It Yourself?

Do It Yourself? What do you think? “Do I buy an old car and restore it myself, or pick a restored one and enjoy it right away?” I’ve taken part in conversations just like this, probably a dozen of them in the past year alone. Do we want to invest the time, money and energy […]

Racing Cops

Racing Cops Let’s talk about doing really, really stupid things. Like racing cops – ever done that? By accident I mean, of course. I’m not talking about squaring-off against a marked cruiser at a set of lights– that would just be suicide. I did however, put on an “exhibition of speed”, right in front of […]

Future Classics

Future Classics Are there true future classics being manufactured today? I mean other than Corvettes and Camaros? Sure, the Blue Oval has their Mustang and the on-again-off-again Ford GT, and Dodge has their Challenger (and to a lesser extent, the Charger).

Stranger In A Strange Land

I’ve been to more than my fair share this year, and I feel very fortunate to have been able to do so. Of course, every show is flush with incredible Chevelles– that’s a given. What’s also […]

The Prodigal Car: ’64 Malibu SS

The Prodigal Car Marla Woodward • Santa Ana, CA Photos by Pete Sommers I purchased my Chevelle Malibu SS new from Chase Chevrolet in Stockton, California, in 1964. This was my daily driver for seven years and I put about 60,000 miles on it before selling it. Unfortunately, I had to sell my favorite car […]
