The oil crisis of 1974 was still fresh in people's minds as they looked for economical transport...so Chevy, Pontiac, Olds and Buick offered versions of this right-sized car. This one happens to be for sale..it looks like the low mileage claimed! 305 c.i. engine and automatic, and the interior looks absolutely new. Appears the car was originally sold in Philadelphia and has the inspection stickers of that area. A neighbor of mine years ago had the Chevy version that was a hatchback.
1955 Studebaker Commander 2dr GrnWht
Interesting V8 coupe by Studebaker. 1955 left Studebaker somewhat behind in the styling trends..they were still working with the Lowey coupe, but their rivals had moved beyond, including wraparound windshields. That was an extremely sensitive point..cars without the new wraparound windshields were at a competitive disadvantage...including the 55 Lincoln which would adopt one in 56. We had a 54 Champion of the same green color. The heater amounted to a coils under the passenger seat...and air would blow across them to heat the car. Studebaker had some unusual trappings, like the toggle switches on the dash and the vents in the front fenders (like the 57 Tbird!).
1965 Falcon Futura Wht
A great "compact" car! Falcon started out in 1960 as fairly bland, but quickly developed some style. You can see this one has lots of style, a great, colorful interior and dealer installed air conditioning! Under the hood is that 200 c.i engine attached to automatic transmission! Nice, economical, stylish transport.
1977 Pontiac Phoenix 2door sedan
Pontiac's version of the compact Chevy Nova, Olds Omega and Buick Skylark. It has the usual Pontiac styling cues including the split grille and familiar tailights.
This one has really nice paint!
1965 Chevy Biscayne 2Door 396 Blk
What a car! The owner obviously knew what he had, and he kept it! It has a history on the track. The exterior and interior are mint. This car qualifies as a definite sleeper...who knows, the guy pulling up to you in a Biscayne probably has the 6 cylinder...guess again!

1977 Nova 358ci Mutha Thumper Cam
This is my 1977 Nova RS.. This was my first car at the age of 15. After college and when I got a big boy job I pulled the original 305 and had Rocket Racing build me a 358ci Chevy to put infront of the 4speed. I have added a new rearend with cal tracs, 6inch hood, 3inch Exhaust with electric cut outs, and new front seats. Future plans are paint (once i figure out how), perfect fit TKO 5speed and maybe a mini tub/335 rear rubber for more of a pro-touring feel....
1980 Oldsmobile Omega America
Begin maart '07 kocht ik bij Mols classic cars in Soest (www.molsclassiccars.com) deze oldsmobile omega.
Ookal was het een rotte bak die van ellende uitelkaar viel en stond ie de eerste dag gelijk stil omdat de dynamo ermee kapte. Heb ik er nog 3 maanden mee gereden, en hem daarna maar verkocht omdat de benzineprijzen explosief stegen.
De Header was lek en afgedicht met gungum maar omdat het toch te heet werd lekte het steeds weer, wat ervoor zorgde dat met een koude start de auto vol uitlaatgas kwam te zitten.
Toen het na de 44 dagen lange zomer die 2007 van maart tot eind april duurde begon te regenen lekte er ook water door de 2 roestplekken boven het raam.
Maar wat was het een heerlijke wagen om in te rijden, en heb er enorm van genoten!
In March '07 i bought this oldsmobile omega for the price of E1250,-
It was in a poor condition but it drove very well.
Lived the American dream for 3 months and sold it because the gasoline prices reached sky high.
The header leaked so if you started the engine the fan blows the gasses straight into the car.
And when it started to rain the water leaked trough the 2 rust holes above the windscreen.
I really enjoyed riding around in this car, it was my dream wich became a little nightmare.
The first day i owned this car the generator failed and needs to be replaced.
The gearbox made strange electrical noise and one of the valves made a ticking noise when revving up.
Also the electrical wiring was a mess but it still worked.
It costed enough, but really didn't repay.
Sold this car before it fell apart ;)
