“…I jumped the fence to peek through the garage window, and lo and behold, it was a first-generation Camaro.” With a garage full of British sports cars and a recently purchased 1961 Pontiac Ventura “bubbletop” (more about this next month), I’m now the proud owner of my first Chevrolet. More specifically, a 1969 Camaro. I truly was never interested in buying a first-generation Camaro as I always preferred the Firebird version, but this little F-body was too good a deal to pass up. I’m a big proponent of unrestored original cars, and this Camaro is as original as the day it rolled off the Norwood assembly line. I’m grateful that it’s now mine. Where did I find this gem? Well, right next door, of all places. While I was unloading the 26-foot U-Haul filled…

Again With That Buick HERE WE THOUGHT BECAUSE WE HAD A PERIOD PHOTO OF THE FLXIBLE-BUILT Shriner Buick (see HCC #162) we could close the books on that mystery. But not when Walter M.P. McCall is on the job. Walter, editor of The Professional Car Society’s magazine, wrote in to inform us that Buick never built a flower car on the 1942 to 1948 Buick chassis. “Flxible did build three Buick flower cars, and one Cadillac, in 1940-’41,” Walter wrote. “In 1942 the company introduced a radically different hearse that looked like a flower car but wasn’t. The Flxible Innovation was a coupe-style funeral vehicle with a smooth rear deck. Just six were made, five on ’42 Cadillac commercial chassis, and one Buick.” He included a photo of one of the Cadillacs for us…

Hostetler’s Hudsons WORLDWIDE WILL CONDUCT THE AUCTION OF THE HOSTETLER’S HUDSON AUTO MUSEUM’S collection this August 4 in Shipshewana, Indiana. The museum’s board decided to permanently close the museum and liquidate the collection of over 50 cars when the museum faced mounting debts and decreased attendance. Eldon Hostetler had built up an impressive collection of Hudsons that included examples from almost every year, from fire trucks to a rare woodie. One of the jewels of the collection is a 1931 Series U “Greater Hudson” seven-passenger touring car believed to have been commissioned for Herbert Hoover’s trip to Panama. Expect to see some of the finest and rarest Hudsons cross the block. For more information, visit www.worldwide-auctioneers.com.
