WHAT'S OLD OCTOBER 2022
I sometimes struggle with a theme for the Newsletter / Blog but when I actually got into the old pictures recent conversations helped select some great old pictures from days gone by.
We have been talking a lot about 348 and 409 engines lately . Here is a sweet coupe with one all dressed up.
I think this is Kalamazoo but I am pretty sure that was the Postman's 37 and Gary's Model A coupe - could be Muddy River Run?
Nice yellow 37 Sedan - Columbus I think ?
We have been chasing parts for an Anglia and here is a nice red one.
We were talking about this Anglia this week - is it still around?
This picture fits into the blog twice - it was taken at a Cider Mill in Michigan on a late season road trip we went on decades ago and it was rarely seen without the previous Anglia near by. I wonder how many Miles it has on it now?
WHAT'S OLD SEPTEMBER 2022
Sometimes what is old is also new - see if you can find the commonality in this month's posts.
1987 Classic Chevy Show tour through a salvage yard in Cambridge.
Classic Chevy Show at Chicopee
Nice 57 Chevy Nomad - wonder what ever happened to it?
Gasser style 56 - I heard rumours it was going to be in a movie filmed in Niagara Falls in the late 80's
what's old July 2022
Here are some old pictures - first All Chevy Weekend 1984 or so at Chicopee Ski Resort in Kitchener.
Then Tomato Festival at Seacliff Park and along the River in Sarnia. I don't remember where the indoor show was.
What's old May 2022
Here is a couple of old pictures from 1983 or 84 at one of the big shows in the States.
With the great weather we had on the weekend I knew everyone was wearing their cheap sunglasses and these pictures would help with the sound track.
WHAT'S OLD APRIL 2022
Going through the old pictures I found a couple I don't think I have shared before.
Even though we are known as Chevy people we have or have previously owned a lot of Buicks.
We currently have seven - more than we have Chevrolets. Here are some pictures.
1937 Buick Special
Old picture of Bob's 68 Skylark
1984 Park Ave - perhaps the best winter beater we ever owned - at least for operating costs and reliability
1966 Buick Riviera we bought for the nailhead
1951 Buick I bought on ebay and got running and driving - cool car
What's Old March 2022
Spring is just around the corner. Everything is turning green. Let's look back at some green cars from the past.
Green 49 Roadmaster
Char's beautiful Skylark
1957 Pontiac wagon from Zurich Bean Festival
WHAT'S OLD FEBRUARY 2022
Let's talk about trucks. We found a bunch of great pictures of trucks we have had, sold or parted over the years on that recovered memory from an old computer. Here are some I thought might be worth sharing.
almost all of them have stories attached if we had room ...
1969 longbox - this truck was way to nice to part out but the previous owner had disassembled it
1962 GMC suburban we brought over from the states -305 V6 we pulled out before we sold it -.
1969 Suburban before it became our swap meet truck- we miss it but new owners are having fun with it.
1972 Camper Special we brought out of Flushing Michigan - untouched big block, factory air truck -parted out.
1991 shortbox - local truck had a rebuilt 350 and good 700r4 we used when we built Andrew's 64.
1949 parts truck - had been well stripped when we got it out of Windsor but still had some good parts
1949 stake truck - the wood deck still cranked up to dump
58 longbox we discovered on a back road near London - running and driving 283 stick - sold a long time ago.
what's old December 2021
A computer genius relative of mine salvaged my pictures off an old broken computer for me so I have an era of pictures I haven't seen in a decade or so.
I thought I would share my vacation pictures from 2007 - but only the interesting transportation related ones.
Hope you enjoy them.
