Lot T70.1 stands for LT1, the LT1 Corvette is one of the most awesome Vette’s ever created in my opinion. This on is a factory AC car, which was a one year only option making it among the most rare. This one will surly fetch big money!

 

Lot T79 should let all those guys with 454SS Chevy trucks stuck in their garage if their investment was worth while or not. With less than 5 miles, never dealer prepped, this has to be the nicest most collectible 454SS in the country.

 

Lot T155.1, the Pontiac Super Duty Trans Am, probably the strongest preforming mid 70’s muscle car of them all. These cars, like all Trans Am’s have really came on the money. My dad had almost this identical car but in a 1974 instead of 1973. Wish he would have kept it! This car is a survivor, be interesting to see how it stacks up against a fully restored car price wise!

Being a Challenger T/A owner myself, you know I couldn’t pass this one up. Lot T142 is a great example of a very nice T/A. Hope it brings some big money!

2nd Annual Cruisin’ For Paws Event Coverage

The 2nd Annual Cruisin’ For Paws Cruise In to raise money for Rabun County Georgia’s Paw’s For Life, a no kill animal shelter, was a huge success! We raised $3706 dollars for Paws For Life! Several dogs were also adopted! We had just over 80 cars! A big thank you to all the volunteers, sponsors, people who donated items for the silent auction, The Eric Leach Band for coming to play at the very last minute, Clayton Police Chief Lindsey Owens for all the help, and most of all, everyone who came out, gave the money, and help support the cause!

2nd Annual Cruisin’ For Paws Car Show This Weekend!!!

Don’t forget to come out and support the 2nd Annual Cruisin’ For Paws Car Show this weekend in Clayton, Georgia!

Cruisin’ For Paws Car & Bike Show Mountain City, GA 10-28-2012

A little rain and a little wind couldn’t keep a good cause down in the mountains of Georgia! Mountain City, Georgia was the site of the Cruisin’ For Paws Car & Bike Show presented by S&S Auto Parts, Rebel Racing & Kustom Paint, War Pony Customs, JDSMotorsports.com and Fastlane Oil & Lube. All proceeds were to benefit Rabun Paws 4 Life the new organization in charge of reopening the former Boggs Mountain Animal Shelter. We were successful in raising $3,000 dollars for Paws 4 Life! A little sunshine and warm weather and we might have done twice that amount but we will take it! Our four legged pals are sure glad to have it!

Because of the Mountain City Police department braving the wind and rain all day traffic went as well as could be expected with it being the middle of leaf season. Although it was backed up a little ways, there were no accidents and everyone got home safe.
