I enjoy the satisfaction and happiness others get when seeing and asking questions about the car. I routinely get a “thumbs up” from other drivers on the road and many want me to roll down the window, just to ask about the car. When I drive the car, I feel like I’m back in time, to the year 1967. It’s a feeling one just can’t get driving a modern day car.

Why the Chevrolet Corvair Corsa Is Collectable

Why the Chevrolet Corvair Corsa Is Collectable

Not only could the Corsa pack 180hp, but it also included larger brakes borrowed from the Chevelle, a stronger differential ring gear, and significant chassis refinements were made. Sadly, the Corsa was short-lived, remaining in production for only two years. But a relatively short production run coupled with the most powerful engine for the model means that it is the most collectable model and will easily remain so.

The Collector is a weekly series produced in association with Gear Patrol.

The Chevrolet Chevelle is pure, American unpretentiousness. It’s simple, straightforward, and designed to do one thing: cover the quarter-mile faster than anything else. To that end, the Chevelle was available with a top-of-the-line 454 cubic-inch (7.4L) engine option, making 360hp (there was also a racing engine option, the LS6, that was supposedly conservatively rated at 450hp!).

As a youngster pumping high-octane gasoline for local muscle car owners in Southern California’s San Gabriel Valley during the 1960s, Mark Lundquist could only dream of owning a 1965 Chevrolet Malibu Super Sport (SS). As if to make up for lost time, however, Mark now has four Chevy SS cars (as well as a beastly “standard” 1968 Camaro) of varying vintages parked in a Joshua Tree, California, garage that inspires envy in every guest who drops in. And yes, this collection includes a ’65 Malibu SS.

Do we really need to explain why a 'Vette is cool? I think most people, even non Petrolisti, instinctively know that there is something special about these cars. No red-blooded car enthusiast could ever fault you for driving a cultural icon, nicknamed "America's sports car," with a sixty year legacy to its name.

Set on a single day and (mostly) night in a small, anonymous American town, American Graffiti is the story of four friends – John, Steve, Curt, and Toad – celebrating the final day of summer. There is no single main character. Instead, there are four separate stories that we follow through the night, and by sunrise the characters come together knowing they have each other to rely on.
