‘peace and love’

This was the sign-off of long-time Classic American contributor and Mopar EuroNats organiser Tony Oksien, who recently passed away. That vaguely ‘hippy-esque’ language was so typical of a man who was far more of a multi-dimensional character than the two-dimensional ‘petrolhead’ you’d imagine. Over the years I’ve dealt with Tony regarding the Mopar EuroNats and just as the magazine supported the event as a sponsor, Tony too supported Classic American and was a loyal and valued contributor to the title. His passing leaves a big hole in the American car scene in this country, particularly the Mopar community, where he had carved out a niche as being a bit of an expert (understatement of the year; in a way he was like the UK’s equivalent of the American Mopar guru, Galen…

kingstown truck giveaway!

Classic American advertiser and global shipping specialist Kingstown recently gave away a Ford F150 pick-up truck to raise funds for charity. The California truck was a 1977 Ford F150 Ranger, built at the San Jose, California plant and was ordered for sale in the San Jose district, so had spent a lot of time in Northern California and was last registered in Yuba City, where it was a daily driver before it was shipped across. Featuring a big-block 460cu in V8 and automatic transmission, you can be sure this Ford has stump-pulling powers in abundance! Classic American asked Stephen Shores, Kingstown’s director, about the give-away: “With the show season pretty much non-existent for 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic and the widely publicised effects the situation was also having on mental…

uk loses its mr mopar

Tony Oksien, widely regarded as the UK’s leading expert on Mopars and one of the organisers of the Mopar EuroNats, held every summer at Santa Pod Raceway, has passed away. He leaves a wife Sharon and son Joe, as well as a big hole in the UK American car scene. As well as being a long-time Classic American contributor with his monthly Muscle Car Files report, he had also established his own valuation service, TOVA (Tony Oksien Valuation and Appraisals). TOVA in a way was an embodiment of Tony’s expertise, as it’s generally agreed that car valuations and appraisals really need to be carried out by an expert and with such an extensive range of knowledge and first-hand experience, Tony came highly recommended, offering expert advice to those who wished to…

tony oksien – a personal view

Pete Wiseman, chairman, Mopar Muscle Association. Like so many others in the Mopar world, I was extremely saddened and shocked at the untimely death of Tony Oksien. I had known Tony for many years, and have long aspired to live up to his values in terms of knowledge, factual accuracy and general decency. As most people are aware, he was instrumental in setting up the Mopar Muscle Association which was designed to “bring Chrysler’s heritage to the masses”. He was the club chairman for many years, and then moved on to become the club’s venerated president. His passion and knowledge of the Chrysler marque was unequalled in the United Kingdom and through his efforts it became a country which, the US aside, was the leading light on Mopar and muscle cars in general. Tony…
