it’s show time!

rlentinello@hemmings.com For the majority of the country, this is the time of year when everyone is busting to get out of the confines of their homes and back into the show scene. Be it cruise nights, cars and coffee, conventions or concours, spending the day among friends admiring old cars and discovering how some of them were built, restored, or modified is truly an inspirational experience. And the exercise you’ll get from walking the show field is healthy for you, too!Right about the time you are receiving this issue of HMN, I will be down in Helen, Georgia, at the Corvair Spring-fest. It’s an annual two-day event hosted by four regional chapters of CORSA. I will be there photographing cars for my forthcoming book, Corvair Style.If you have never attended…

Please thank Edward Heys for the “Unintentional Portraits” features. I really enjoy the photos from yesteryear and it makes me want to dig out my old pictures with cars and trucks and send them, too. What is the procedure to submit photos? I am not sure if I can convert old photos to a digital image, or are people mailing you the actual pictures? If so, are they returned?Another reason I wrote was to point out that the Memory Lane picture #8 on page 83 of the April issue of Hemmings Motor News appears to be a fake or altered photo. Mack B65’s doors had a wing vent that is absent in photo. I know Mack cabs were small (I drove a B61 in the mid-70s), but scale does…

students resurrect a ’55 thunderbird

(IMAGE COURTESY THE SPARTAN GARAGE) Each year, students enrolled in the automotive technology program at East Syracuse Minoa Central High School in New York have the opportunity to help restore a classic car, or, in some cases, build a kit car from the ground up. When the work is completed, the finished product is raffled off, with proceeds going to fund the following year’s program. For 2019, the Spartan Garage — named for the high school’s mascot — is restoring a 1955 Ford Thunderbird, with the winner to be drawn at the Syracuse Nationals in July.This year’s raffle car was donated by former local resident Stan Neu, who worked on the first-year Ford Thunderbird with his own son for years, but never finished the restoration. When the family moved to…

The Hemmings Motor News Concours d’Elegance, taking place September 13-15, will lead off with a noncompetitive rally through New York’s scenic Adirondack region.

1967 pontiac 2+2

Though the mid-century horsepower race was centered mostly on fullsize cars, by the mid-1960s the muscle car movement had expanded the focus to midsize models. Nevertheless, automakers continued to produce stylish and quick big cars with the power to challenge their smaller siblings.A prime example is the GTO’s big brother, the 1967 Catalina-based 2+2. It traces its beginnings to a bucket seat/console/trim option offered on the 1964 Catalina. A renewed fullsize line debuted for 1965 and the 2+2 became a full-fledged high-performance car. A 338-horsepower 421-cu.in. four-barrel engine and HD suspension were standard, while 356-hp Tri-Power and 376-hp H.O. Tri-Power 421s were optional. All the premium equipment continued for 1966 and the 2+2 became a separate series for just one year.The 2+2 Sport Option cost $420.22 on the restyled…
