Rip Van Winkle Buick Awakens Collector Interest Walter Zemple of Manawa, Wis., was a careful, frugal man who lived in a home without modern utilities. However, Mr. Zemple took exceptionally good care of a 1951 Buick he owned. When he … More
John Romppainen grew up during the “Happy Days” era of the 1950s. And there may not be a car anywhere that better represents that golden decade than Romppanien’s lovely 1953 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible.
Anybody who regularly visits this blog knows I dig anything with the Cadillac crest, especially when it hovers above the classic “V” as it did on 1930-’60s models. One of the most impressive Cadillacs to come from that period, and … More
Here’s an incredible “Wreck of the Week” photo submitted by Old Cars Weekly reader William Swank. It’s so incredible, it doesn’t need a caption to go with it, but it’s every writer’s dream and we won’t let the opportunity pass … More

So when it comes to hobby cars, Arneson is partial to one flavor, and one flavor only. Until recently April of 2009, that is, when he ran across an amazing, all-original 1954 Nash Ambassador with just 15,000 miles.
Bill Whited is not the type of fellow to come right out and say it, but he’s one of those guys that’s not easy to impress when it comes to cool cars. But Whited is truley smitten by his latest acquisition: a blinding orange, old school 1950 Oldsmobile street rod. More
