Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

Roland Ball of Plano, Texas, sure knows how to have a great Father’s Day. It was in June 2002 when he first saw and fell in love with this unique 1968 Shelby GT500 KR. Roland’s good friend, Jeff Goodlove, discovered this exceptional car in a storage garage. Jeff had taken his father out just to look around for some old cars when he happened to find this Raven Black Shelby. Jeff asked the owner of the garage if he could take a peek at what was under the cover. When he saw the Shelby, he immediately thought of his friend Roland who had expressed more than once his love for that year and model of Shelby. (more…)

With the major design change in 1970, the ‘Cuda drew in a totally new crowd of Mopar fans who found the new E-body to be one of the best looking cars of all time.

Troy’s Pick – 2008 Woodward Dream Cruise Award-winning LS7 Camaro

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

It all started for me in the passenger seat of my dad’s ’57 Chevy Nomad.  My dad would take a buddy and me or two out to Woodward Avenue, all the while listening to Chuck Berry and Little Richard, while by dad tried finding some victims to race. It was probably not the safest thing to do with a couple of kids by today’s standards, but we loved it.

It’s bad enough being a kid and getting harassed by the police for doing nothing, but when you’re in a muscle car it certainly doesn’t help the situation. (more…)
