1948 Willys CJ-2A

These early CJs always seem to die as rusted-out farm vehicles, or when they get restored, end up converted into olive drab Army toys or fully modernized rock-crawlers. This ’48 was built up in honest, original style using an aftermarket body. We love the stock stance, roll cage-free profile and tiny tires that nonetheless look […]

1939 Graham Model 97 Supercharger

This 1939 Graham Model 97 sedan will stand out anywhere you take it. Blinding Glacier White paint and a unique cut-back grille should ensure that. The styling was dubbed “Spirit of Motion,” but became simply nicknamed “Shark-nose.” The supercharged 218-ci straight six pumps out 116 horsepower—26 more than the unblown variant, and enough to keep […]

1966 Toyota Stout

We’d love to see this ’66 Stout put back on stock-sized black steelies and lowered just a touch. We’d also consider losing the rear bumper, which it would have been delivered without when new. Otherwise, we’d load it up and use it like the work truck that it is. These tiny, odd trucks were the […]

1964 Mercury Comet Drag Car

I love this Comet mostly for its sky-high nose and relocated rear axle. It has an all-business look about it, complete with a driver’s seat that’s pushed way back over the rear axle and yellow-tinted windows, just like you would have seen on the early funny cars at Lions back in the ’60s. Although this […]

1989 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante

Aston Martin’s V8 Vantage Volante is a legitimate member of the supercar club — said to be Britain’s first — with a top speed of nearly 170 mph. You might even recognize it as a James Bond car, but only if you’re into the Timothy Dalton years of the series. One appeared in 1987’s The […]

1962 Oldsmobile Starfire

It’s pretty easy to find Impalas, Bel Airs, Galaxies, and Fairlanes at car shows and cruise-ins. But Oldsmobile Starfires? Not so much. Today they seem downright rare by comparison, even though 34,839 were sold in 1962. I like this Starfire for its original feel and great condition. It has just over 100,000 original miles and […]
