Lot 624- Every time I see one of these cars it will be on my list! I love these!
Lot 701– Usually I’m not a big fan of chopped trucks, but this Mercury, yes I said Mercury is just way too cool not to mention!
Lot 730– You want a Z28? Forget the 69’s, get a real Z, get a 1970! This is a great example! One owner car!
Lot 775.3– A Superbird Convertible? Huh? Pretty cool even for a clone!
Lot 839– Factory 150 Business Coupe, Fuelie too, it will take an awfully impressive car to top this one on my list this year!

I’ve always been a sucker for the big cars, especially when they have a big block in them! Lot K74 is a great example of such car, 4-speed and all!
Being a mid 70’s Grand Prix owner, this one immediately caught my eye. I expect cars like Lot K81 to really come on strong in the upcoming years.
I’m a sucker for a 59 Chevy, I’m a sucker for a four door, I’m a sucker for a wagon. Lot K90 has all that! Plus a 348 and a four speed!
Just look at Lot K147.1 it needs to explanation why its on the list!
Lot K166.1 is our first look at a higher end Corvette, the classic 63 Split Window. This car is highly optioned, unique owner history, it will be interesting to see what this one does in the earlier time slot, I could see it hitting triple digits pretty easy!
Going through some old video’s, I realized I never uploaded three episode’s of the old Driving Car Series, so here they are!

Here are or top ten “Gotta Haves” from this weekend’s Mecum Auction in Austin, Texas.
I love the green, I love the big block and the 4-speed. The power steering and air are just extra kickers. Maybe not the fastest big block Corvette ever made, but this would be a heck of a nice driver!
The chances to own a Hemi ‘Cuda are getting less and less these days, the chances to own an unrestored, low mile Hemi ‘Cuda? Impossible! This car will fetch big money. Aside from everything mentioned, this car is a rare color too, the beautiful Jamaican Blue.
As much as I love a split window, its never really been a bucket list car for me, my dad had one years ago so I kinda checked it off the list. But both of these cars grabbed my attention. The first one, because its that classic silver that I so often see a split window pictured in. I love the original hub caps, its just got that classic Vette look. The second one grabbed my attention for just the opposite, that custom color, its different from the norm and beautiful. If you end up with either one of these Vette’s, its gonna be a good weekend in Austin!
While I’m not normally a huge fan of the 63 Chevrolet passenger cars, all the power options with the 409 drew me to this car. Rare options, black exterior, red interior, someone had a good eye when they checked the order boxes on this one!
Who doesn’t love a resto-mod Vette? This ’56 is as clean as they come. It looks basically stock on the outside, but its anything but stock on the inside!
I remember years ago shortly after the Viper came out seeing a Challenger swapped with a Viper V10 at the Turkey Rod Run in Daytona Beach, I thought it was an awesome idea ever since, you just don’t see it done nearly enough!
The Lt1 Vette’s are THE VETTE to have in my opinion. The ultra rare 72 version with factory air are even better!
While the title says restomod, Im not really sure how much that applies. What it is though is a tough looking little coupe with enough creature comforts to make it fun, but not take away the muscle car feel or look.
Original patina on a C10? Need I say more? I mean? Really? This thing is out of this world awesome!
