My name is Rich Budd and I am a Technology Teacher at Minisink Valley Middle School. I am contacting you regarding an upcoming car show at Minisink Valley to benefit the Chris Corwin Scholarship Fund. …
This is a stunning example of Colonnade era GM A-body. Removing the front bumper was a very nice touch and gave it a bit of a 2nd gen Camaro look… hence the title of this blog post.
This car is really done well from the subtle modifications to the LS drivetrain with manual transmission to the perfect stance. Of the Colonnade cars I probably like the Oldsmobiles the most. I would love to own one like this one. It’s roomy, it handles, it accelerates, it looks good and it’s somewhat unique. You just don’t see many of these at car shows.
Selling a used car is a real pain. Whether it’s a classic or not, there are challenges to the process:
- What is it worth? How should you price it?
- Where is the best place to advertise it?
- Are you good at writing ads? Yes, it matters…
- Do you know how to screen the calls?
I’ve recently found a resource for this who specializes in classic cars and other special interest vehicles. His name is David Brill and he is the Auto Archeologist….
If you’re in a Long Island based car club (or from Queens & Brooklyn) you should get to know the Long Island Car Club Council. The LICCC was formed around 1990. It was formed initially for the purpose of avoiding conflicts of car club sponsored shows on the same dates in the same area. As the hobby has grown on Long Island, the Council has also created the opportunity for the 60 plus car clubs to support each other’s events and even collaborate on combined events….
Steve Dewey has reached out to us to see if we can find the owner of this awesome car dipped in some type of candy red. Steve met the owner at the ADK Nationals in Lake George this past September but neglected to get his information.
Don’t let this be “the one that got away” for Steve. If you know the owner please have him contact us and we’ll connect him with Steve.

When putting your car back together, whether you’re a restorationist or a hot rodder, invariably you need some very specific hardware from time to time. Where do you find this stuff for a 50 plus year old car?
I came across a source today as I was searching for OEM style electrical connectors for behind my Bel Air’s starter switch (where the key goes). I thought many of you would benefit from this resource so I’m sharing the website here.
If you buy from them, let us know how it works for you.
Rubber Hits The Road has been contacted by one of the NY producers of the upcoming short film DRIVING OUR MOM’S FALCON. They are seeking classic cars from the 50’s and 60’s for scenes to be shot during October 9th through Oct 12th, 2017. SO ACT QUICKLY!
If you’re from a car club, please share this with your members.
This is a paid gig. Your car will be famous and you’ll get some cash too! They have insurance so your baby will be protected.
If you’re interested or if you know someone who might be, please contact Sophie Luo at 630-536-4194 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aaron Kaufman formerly of Fast & Loud has a new show! That’s good news for most of us. I’m a big fan of Aaron’s talents and I’m also looking forward to seeing more of Aaron on his new show, The Low Life Show, which specializes in custom builds….
