In 1973, GM honored another Southern California coastal town with the launch of the third-generation Chevrolet Chevelle. The top-tier “Colonnade coupe” model was named the Laguna, paying tribute to the laid-back vibe of places like Malibu and Laguna Beach, which were then small surfer communities quite different from their modern image. Despite their tranquil past, […]
This next car is about the lowest optioned Chevelle you could have purchased in 1970. Not only does it start with the pedestrian 4-door body, but it has a 250 inline-6 engine mated to a power-glide 2-speed automatic, and it is probably manual steering and manual brakes…but the price is right for a driveable classic that isn’t a rust bucket. Find this 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle 4-Door offered for $2500 in Bridgeport, CT via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
The 2nd generation Chevelle was a big car…IS a big car, but back in the day it was considered a mid-sized…and if you wanted a BIG wagon you got the full-sized Kingswood Estate. And while those old full-sized beasts have all but disappeared from the road, the mid-sized cars have lingered longer and you can find survivors floating around dry states.

You guys are familiar with the show Leepu and Pitbull, right? No, it’s not a Bollywood detective show, but a History channel reality car building show starring Bangladeshi tuk-tuk car designer Leepu Awila and (likely ex-Mafiosi) Steve “Pitbull” Trimboli. You’d think that I’m making this up…but I’m 100% not and this next car was the featured build on episode 8 of season 1. The show is a veritable dumpster fire of muttonchops and eagle beak front ends. AND I LOVE IT!! HOW WAS THIS CANCELED AFTER ONLY ONE SEASON?? History should have canned all of those stupid American Chopper wannabe shows and run Leepu & Pitbull marathon 24-7! Screw the Velocity Channel, I want the Leepu & Pitbull channel. Find this 1991 Chevrolet Caprice bidding for $3649 reserve-not-met with 2 days go, located in North Chemlsford, MA.

The final of the three Magi is named Gaspar and his gift was historically myrrh, which is an essential tree oil that was used in embalming practice, an unusual gift for a newborn, but appropriate for someone would die at a young age….anyway, this next car is appropriately symbolic of death…I think. Find this 1968 Chevrolet […]
The SS badge on the side of a Chevelle meant it had a powerful V8 and the ability to go toe-to-toe with any other huge domestic sedan from the same era…but they only built the SS wagon in 72/73, so if you want one without spending a bunch of cash, you’ll have to make your […]

I didn’t know this until recently, but if you go to Subway and ask for a chicken sandwich, you get something that looks like chicken, but isn’t really if you examine the DNA. What is it? Who knows. But it reminds me of what you find around the car shows across America, cars that aren’t […]
