Our Letters department sometimes isn’t big enough to present all the comments, questions, and opinions we get every month. That’s when I let those thoughts spill over into my editorial column. I see this page as a venue to provoke thought as well as inform, and I by no means have exclusive rights on provocative around here. Car Show Attitudes In my June column I wrote about how car shows, and attitudes about them, seem to be changing—how younger hobbyists, in particular, are less enthusiastic about traditional car shows in favor of the more relaxed, cars-and-coffee approach. Even more relaxed would be the virtual car show you “attend” on your smartphone. One reader had this observation from a different vantage point in our hobby: Despite the fact that I haven’t got a lot…

YOU’RE WELCOME Just wanted to say thank you for your recent articles in the March and June publications featuring 1969 Chevelles. As was said about Mark Prunesti’s beautiful Garnet Red machine, “You never forget your first car” [“Hidden in the Valley,” June 2019]. My very first car was a 1969 Chevelle as well, and I do regret parting with it. I know that the 1970 model probably gets more accolades, but I always like the 1969, which had a remarkable refinement in the front grille and the taillights from the 1968. And as “It’s all about the stance,” I’ve always thought the 1969 model had to have bigger (day-two) tires in the back for it to look aggressive in a proper way. One area on the 1969 Chevelle that seems to never…

FALSE NARRATIVE I maintain the GTS Registry on the web (gtsregistry.com) and Facebook, so I look forward to any article concerning the Dodge Dart GTS. In your June 2019 article featuring a 1969 440 M-code GTS [“Mr. Norm’s M-Code”] is a false narrative that is being perpetuated by relying upon wrong information concerning these cars. For 1969, all 440 M-code Dart GTSs were built on the Hamtramck, Michigan, assembly line, not at Hurst Campbell. Yes, Hurst Campbell converted 48 of the 1968 383 GTS cars to 440 power. All were sold to Grand-Spaulding Dodge, and Mr. Norm had them rebadged as GSS models. I have corresponded with the late Doc Watson from Hurst Campbell, plus I have production numbers from Hurst Campbell, and there is no evidence of 1969 GTS 440 conversions.…

THE SAGA OF THE ‘ABANDONED’ GTX It sounded like one of those enticing online clickbait stories: “Rare muscle car found in a storage unit.” But this one seemed legit. A 1969 GTX convertible—one of 700 built—was being sold via an online auction by the Leelanau County Sheriff’s Department in Michigan. The 440/automatic convertible had been left in a storage unit that had changed hands a few times. Unpaid fees had racked up, and the facility’s owner finally asked the Sheriff’s Department to take possession of the rare Mopar. A check by the department of the VIN didn’t turn up a current owner. Once the sheriff had possession, the county was compelled to sell it at auction. Online bidding on the car took off shortly after the department listed it, jumping to $47,600…

rare finds

About 10 years ago, Don Feldt was back in his hometown of Hayes, Kansas, for Christmas. When he left, his brother, Johnny, sent him on a mission. “He said, ‘On your way back home, stop at the [Harper] family farm and see what all is out there.’” The farm is where Johnny’s good friend Dennis Harper had grown up. Don grew up in Hayes but lives 180 miles southeast in Wichita. As a teenager in the 1970s (high school class of 1977), Don remembered that Dennis had a body shop in town. “I’d never seen him drive anything cool, but my brother knew of a 427 Galaxie that Dennis drove. He said he remembered seeing it parked in town [at the Harper Body Shop], probably about 1971-’72.” Don followed directions to find the farm…
