Long wait for Torino has paid off

Sometimes a new car makes such an impression that you just can’t get it out of your mind. That’s what happened in the case of the brand-new 1970 Torino GT that Greg Dye spotted shortly after it showed up in his parents’ neighborhood.

Winter worries offer opportunities

Sitting in my home office with my faithful hounds, Ruby and Skeeter, sprawled out on the floor, cold rain drops pecking at the window, I am resisting the urge to give in and turn on the furnace for the first time this fall. I have finally come to the realization that the cold season is here, probably to stay.

Geezers get together

It stands to reason that each year, the number of geezers with cool cars should grow a bit. (Never mind that there’s no set age at which geezerhood commences. It’s more of a mindset thing, anyway.)

Pontiacs all the way

Mention high-performance Pontiac engines and the name “Wilhite” immediately comes to mind among those in the know. And rightfully so.

Mike Berry: What to make of Lambrecht auction
