1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am, Limited EditionDistributor Login
Only 2,917 were equipped with
the high-output Pontiac T/A
6.6 W72 400 engine and t-tops
coupled with the four-speed
Borg Warner Super T-10
manual transmission. 1817
of those were not black & gold.
So the total 4 spd 400 cars of
the above is 1817 out of 116,535
produced of Trans Ams or 1817
out of about 211,00 total Firebirds
produced. Estimated only slightly
around 200 were white.This was
one of them.
I rebuilt the motor with a higher performance cam,
changed the rear end gears so it would do more
top end, and a new speedometer gear. Gave to my
daughter. Later she sold it to a friend.

1966 Honda 450 Black BomberDistributor Login
My brother told me that his girl
friend’s father was looking to sell
his motorcycle. So before I looked
at the bike, I rented a Yamaha 80
from a Shell gas station to see if I
wanted to be a biker.
I had so much fun on the little
80 I had to see the 450.
2 cylinder, 1 down 3 up 4 speed,
loud, and really good looking,
I bought it for $400.
Got a motorcycle license
endorsement, never did insure
it, and rode it around until I
went into the service. Left it
out for my brother who
consequently let it go swimming
in the Anaheim reservoir.
1978 Dodge D150 1/2 Ton PickupDistributor Login
Bought from Orange County
Dodge in 1978. Used for work

desert to ride bikes.
Eventually gave it to my

1981 GMC Suburban, Big Bad DieselDistributor Login

1958 Chevy Bel Air, My First CarDistributor Login
My first car. 1958 Chevy Bel Air.
Since my dad used the Lincoln
Mercury Station Wagon for
transportation, I needed my
own car. A clean car came on
the Chrysler lot one day.
I looked at it and said it
was ok. I had to have a car.
So I bought it for 300.00 and
it was off to the races.
A small story…Click the Link
2001 Ford Excursion LimitedDistributor Login
Great Family car. Traded my

lot into it over time.
Upper and lower
control arms, ball joints,
rebuilt tranny, fixed the
electric mirrors, etc.
It is up to 230,000 miles,
burns a litttle oil but still
going strong. A must have
for a busy family.
1972 Honda CL 450 ScramblerDistributor Login
Got home from Vietnam in
January of 1972. My dad was
using my truck and camper, and
my brother had sunk my 450
in the reservoir. So as soon as
I had 4 paychecks in my pocket,
I bought this bike.
After getting married in August,
we moved to the Club Continental
apartments in Anaheim. Even with
a security guard in the parking
garage, my bike was stolen. So
I went and bought the CB 550
I still have.
1951 Dodge, Modified Stock Race CarDistributor Login
When I was a boy growing up in
Michigan, cars were a way of life.
I saw my first heat and main at
Mt. Clemens Speedway.
I later was in the pits at Flat
Rock and Motor City.
My dad was the shoemaker,
my uncle was the chauffeur
(mechanic and driver) of #44.
My early recollections of that
time are hearing that great
‘One Eyed One Horn Wild
Purple People Eater’. How could
you not remember that song ?!
And the Sylvester the Cat race car
and the triple 0 car my uncle Jake
drove. We took 5th place in
USAC modified stock car
racing in Michigan in 1958.

1967 Corvette, My Dream CarDistributor Login
I went to the Corvette Swap
Meet in Pomona one year and
came away with a 1960 and a
1967 Stingray. The Stingray

ran a red light doing 80 mph

Story to follow later.

1959 Lincoln Mercury WagonDistributor Login
My first driving experience was in a 1959
Lincoln Mercury Station Wagon. When I
was 13, my dad would send me to the store
to get milk and some cigars for him. Was
lucky no one caught me. But he knew I had
been around cars since I was 6 years old.
(We were a racing family from Michigan.
Around the tracks and pits all the time.)
And I used to pretend driving an old 1951
Hudson we had in our front yard, along
with a 1962 Hillman.
Took my first driving test in the ‘beast’. Got
a 100 % on both the written and the driving
tests (and in those days this included
parallel parking !). They even put a placque
on the DrivoTrainer for me.
A small side note…Got my first ticket the
same day I got my license. Pulled out of a
parking lot at dusk and as I did I turned on
my lights. Cop said I should have turned on
the lights sooner.
1966 Dodge PolaraDistributor Login
As I got married, and just before
we moved into our Buena Park
home, I had needed a car for my
wife to drive. I picked up this
car from my older brother.
The car had been ordered new
as a potential police car. That
means oversize drums and brakes,
the 440 commander engine, extra
large battery, 383 rear end, and
a whole bunch of other goodies.
After a couple of years, I rebuilt
the engine and we gave the car
to my wife’s younger brother, who
immediately lowered it, hung the
fuzzy dice from the mirror, & put
a bobble head in the rear window.
Quick story–he decided to clean
the radiator one day and figured
drano would do the job. He called
me after doing this and asked me
if it was normal that water
squirted out in many places in the
front of the radiator.
1974 Pinto Squire WagonDistributor Login
Now that we have moved into
our home in Buena Park, and
I had just committed to giving
away the Polara, I needed to get

along comes the Pinto Squire
Wagon. A neat little car with a
great heater, but no A/C. Kept
this car for about 7 years.

2000 Ford F150, Extended Cab, Tonneau CoverDistributor Login
The truck is up to 256,000 miles

son this for graduation, then I
bought it from him when he got
married and had another car.
Daughter used it for 2 years after
she gave back the Jeep, then I
got it back for a couple of years.
Then I gave it to my son again
when his Sonata died. And now I
just recently paid for tires and a
tune up and am getting it back
again so I can give it to my 16 yr
old grandson for first first car.
I wonder how many times
will I buy this Truck ???
1989 Jeep Cherokee LaredoDistributor Login
One of the best purchases we
made. Car had power windows,
door locks, the famous ‘Iron
Workhorse’ straight six
cylinder and select-trac 4 wheel
drive. Paint faded after 10 years
and I had it repainted. Gave
the car to my sister-in-law
and it went to over 300,000
miles before they sold it.
1981 GMC Sierra Classic with Dump Body, Original Owner, Low MilesDistributor Login
A fantastic truck for the farm.
And if you are in the landscaping
business, this beats pulling a trailer
and hand unloading daily.

1972 Lincoln Continental Mark IVDistributor Login
Car did not have a scratch on it.
His favorite car, of which he had
many. In fact, I bought 2 Corvairs
from this man. It had the
polyester type seats. Big 460
CID engine, ran fantastic. The
only thing I did not like is the
original shag carpet. Gave this
to my dad as he got older and
was hard for him to get in and
out of the Bronco. When he
passed away, I gave it to my

1966 Chrysler Crown ImperialDistributor Login
After I got out the service, I

Imperial and when I sold the
truck and camper, I drove
this monster for a while.
Full power seats, windows, door
locks, power antenna, A/C, 8
track, tilt & telescoping steering
wheel. And a really cool feature–
you could change the radio
station by either the normal seek
button on the radio, or you could
tap a button switch to the right
of the gas pedal. I drove this car
on and off for over 3 years as my
dad bought a 1973 Plymouth Fury
1962 Corvette, My High School RacerDistributor Login
Well, I finally got tired of driving
my truck with no radio, A/C, or
cab lighting. Went driving down
Whittier Blvd and saw this
gorgeous car sitting on the lot.
Talked to the salesman, liked
what I heard, left my truck there
and drove the Vette to Anaheim
to show my dad. From there to
Anaheim Finance, at the time a 2
person office, saw the owner, and
he initially said no. Then I took
him outside to see the car, told
who my dad was and 20 minutes
later we paid the car dealer and
drove the Vette home.
I drove this to school every day
and realized this car was meant
for racing. I drove this car for a
couple of years and only sold it
because I was drafted and I knew
if it was at home, my younger
brother would destroy it and
himself along with it.

1966 GMC Stepside PickupDistributor Login
I went to work one day, as an
almost 17 year old, and saw
this red pick up in the lot. I found
out it belonged to the shop
foreman and that is was for sale.
Why not ? I said to myself.
So I sold the 1958 Bel Air and
bought this 1966 GMC Fire
Engine Red Stepside Pickup.
I had so much wax on it the
cloth would slide off the
hood. Put new lumber in the bed,
chrome stove bolts and runners
(later covered it up with black
vinyl so I would not scratch it).
No radio, A/C, or actually
anything in it other than a
heater, windshield wipers, and a
lighter socket (no lighter).
Bought some cheap slide-on
headrests to classy it up a little,
And ‘Moon” hub caps.
1994 Eagle TalonDistributor Login
Gave this to my daughter as a
graduation gift. 2 days later she

River Gorge until I figured it out.
1977 Mercury Cougar XR7, Very Low MileageDistributor Login
A little over 56,000 miles. This is
my daily driver. Leather seats,
new vinyl top, original carpet.
Only a couple of small things to
do : Repaint the trunk emblem,
replace knobs on window cranks,
change one beauty ring on one
wheel, need 2 inner hub caps that
that came off on freeway, and
lastly change out engine hood
pad. Though not really needed,
the paint, due to having a semi-
metallic type of paint, has
faded a little and I will
probably repaint and pin
stripe the entire car. After that
we are ready for the car shows

Live and learn. As much as I
