This bird sported the Cragar SS wheels with a spare to match – a nice classic touch.

I would have to string together more adjectives than this page could fit to describe how outstanding this Buick is. The fit, finish, and details are out of this world.

A Kaiser Darrin! We have only seen one at the Petersen. This space-age beauty has all kinds of interesting features, but the coolest one…

This was one gnarly Nova. It growled past us while we were photographing the white T-Bird and called to us.  We followed, of course – it sounded sooooo good!
