Corvette

Here's another Vette, but I need help dating this one - early 2000's, I think.

Silverado K-10

I must have been sleeping that day - I failed too many times to photograph the data sheet in the window, so I can only guess the vintage on some of these. I'm pretty sure this one is newer than 1974

It looks like a work in progress, but it's a really nice truck.

GTO

Here's a 1970-ish GTO. I don't have any more data on it, but it looks in great shape. Not sure what motor is in it. While Pontiac performance and the 400/6.6 are commonly associated, they had other potent motors such as the 455 (plus a couple other earlier 400+ cubic inch motors). But I think by the time this car came out, the options would have been 350, 400 or 455 (for the GTO).

1955 Chevy

If I called this the most ubiquitous hot rod ever, would that be redundant?

Seriously, the 55 Chevy may be the most iconic of all hot rods. And this one looks like the ultimate example ! It's really sweet !

I don't know what a 55 instrument cluster looked like, but this one is really slick !

Garage
The red and white 1st gen Camaros would be 67's due to their vent windows. Those went away for 68, otherwise the bodies were the same. The blue 4wd Chevy pickup would be an 81-87 due to it's sloped hood and fenders. They also had a different dash panel, otherwise they looked the same from the cab on back. Great pictures Doug.

That Holden is a Holden! GORgeous car! They made many left-hand-drive cars to be shipped here! You can tell by the difference in the body style.

I would LOVE a Holden Caprice!!!!

Thanks Doug. I think I'm starting to dig Corvettes more at a show since the owners don't modify the hell out of them.

I had dreams of retiring and taking my 85 Riviera to shows but as the older guys die off the 'keeping' it stock' goes by the wayside and my stock Riviera would look silly among the sea of resto mods. Oh well, such is life!
