About “51”

I have owned this car 9 years we drive it as much as we can we won a drive it award last year from NRCA we are very proud to accept this award.

About “Cruiser”

Found in a garage in Sherwood park, this car was still with the original family and only had 53,000 original miles clocked. It was in need of a fresh paint job, some interior repair and I decided we should have the chrome and stainless addressed.

All told it was in fantastic shape for a car it's age.
