I’ve been writing about cars for about eight years now, and, during that time, I have done a great deal of research. Over the years, I have been mind-blown by some of the opportunities that I missed when I was younger, because some cars that were once affordable are now worth a small fortune as so-called “classics”.

Black Gold, Texas Tea, and a 1921 Olds Roadster

I’m not sure why it was, but there were a number of TV shows based on some pretty way out premises back in the 1960s and 70s. When I was particularly young, we had I Dream of Jeannie. This was about an astronaut who had a hot-looking female genie who could grant real-life wishes.

Another show that was based on a crazy idea was Mister Ed. The creators decided that the viewing public could buy into a situation comedy that starred a talking horse named Mister Ed. Believe it or not, the show was quite popular back in the day. Continue reading »

Haunted Highways: A Pony of a Different Color

CobraRheadIn recent years, the great pony car war of Mustang versus Camaro has been better than ever. The Coyote 5.0 in the GT is a bona fide Camaro-killer, and the Corvette-based LT1 is a old school torque-monster ready for any challenge. Continue reading »

Haunted Highways: 2002 Chevy Camaro SS

ss1Before the automotive world took a giant downturn in 2002 by watching one of its longest tenured power-players cease production, GM decided to give us a Camaro worth remembering.  The Fourth Generation Camaro was not wholly innovative in its execution, nor was it a fully formed, new iteration of the venerable Pony Car; what it was, however, was a very stout, rip-roaring good time on any back road, on-ramp, or traffic light in the country.  Continue reading »

The history of the American automobile manufacturing industry is very interesting when you start to delve into it. Many different twists and turns got us to where we are today, but it has always been an incestuous environment. Companies have swallowed up other companies along the way, and some very important pioneers tend to get lost in the shuffle.

The Plymouth Barracuda stands tall as an iconic piece of automotive history. This American classic is notable on a number of different levels.

Many people think that the Ford Mustang was the first “pony car”. It is true that the term was coined with the Mustang in mind, but the Plymouth Barracuda was in the same class. This car was actually introduced about two weeks prior to the launch of the Ford Mustang in April of 1964, so the Barracuda is actually the first pony car offered to the American public.

Old Lincoln Classic Making a Comeback

continentalhead2When I was growing up on the hard streets of Trenton, New Jersey, during the 1970s, the Lincoln Continental was one of the most eye-catching cars on the road. This was the era of what they used to call the “big boats,” and the Lincoln Continental was probably the biggest boat of all.
