It looks better in the air than it does sitting still.>>>
Who: Frank Eveland
Where: Zanesville, OH
What: '83 Chevrolet Malibu wagon
Why: First of all, we love wagons reaching for the back bumper. Frank painted this thing like a '55 Chevy Nomad, dropped in a 402 big-block, and went racing. The timeslip read 11.61 at 112 with a nice 1.55 60-foot time.
"Check this out. It's a gas gauge on my new Cuisinart coffee pot. Now I know how much "fuel" remains in the tank. I might replace this with an aftermarket gauge. Think an Auto Meter Pro Comp II will fit?"

Admit it. This thing is so wrong, it's right.>>>
Mopar Guy Head Turner
Who: Billy Budd Sullivan
Where: Pitt Bull Garage, Trego, MT
What: '70 Dodge Challenger R/T
Why: Just look at this thing. It is impossible to ignore. It's powered by a 0.030-over 440 that must be deafening, scoots with the help of a 727 TorqueFlite, and we're sure it has an 83/4 back there. Dig the seat covers?
You don't see these much anymore. We should shoot it just for technical accuracy.>>>
Original Trans Am
Who: Chip Rollins
Where: Goodlettsville, TN
What: '79 Pontiac Trans Am
Why: Chip is the original owner of this car. He bought it in December 1978, drove it for 40,000 miles, and parked it in a garage. In addition to the 400ci engine and four-speed, it has WS6 four-wheel disc brakes.
We didn't see the interior, but this thing looks mint.>>>
Who: Robert L. Galla
Where: Dandridge, TN
What: '67 Ford Mustang
Why: According to Robert, this car is a completely original survivor (except for the wheels). It has a 390 FE with a Top Loader four-speed, and even the original carb.
Who: Don Bennett
What: '64 Pontiac Tempest
Where: Fredericksburg, VA
Why: Don's buddy bought this and a '62 Impala SS convertible as a package deal. He had no room and made Don an offer he couldn't refuse. The car has 74,000 original miles and a 326 that runs like new.
He says: The only thing different from a '64 GTO is the extra set of doors and the price.
