This car has a
261-6 cylinder engine, 2bbl carb and 3sp manual transmission with
overdrive and 15" chrome reverse wheels. The trailer is a 1970
I saved the
67 from being crushed by a farmer in Saskatchewan when I was 16. A nick name
stuck from then on as "Knee High", since if it wasn't rescued it was to be that
tall the next day. The original 327 was run on diesel in a oversight by the
previous owners in an attempt to liberate fuel at a better price. Swapped that
327 for a 350 and used Knee High all through high school. Then it was parked as I
was off working in Vancouver. In 2010 it was decided there was too much good car
left to let nature reclaim it and was restored and reunited with its numbers
matching 327 (rebuilt) and I drove it out to Calgary. A special thanks goes to
my Dad and Uncle for all the work they put in on the restoration of "Knee High."
I am the second
owner of this 1960 Pontiac Strato-Chief. My Grandparents bought it
brand new in August of 1960. I finished the restoration in 2014. It
has a 261ci inline Strato-Six and a 2 speed Powerglide. Original
mileage of 68,000.
I am the second
owner of this car and have been working on it for the past year.
The car was
originally purchased in Winnipeg in 1963, by a retired couple who
was moving to Calgary. They decided to sell it in the early 70's
when my dad purchased it. After he passed in 1980, I then purchased
it from my mom. It is a survivor with 40,000 original miles on it
although it has been stored for decades, it has been a labor of love
reviving it. Some upgrades are a new radiator, hoses, wheels and
tires, carb overhaul, pan gastket and HEI distributor.
I had one of these in high
school and some 26 yrs later in 2004, I bought this one. The
overall condition was a disaster at best, but after a total
restoration in 2006 it has been brought back to life. It's now
painted in white diamond pearl and the original 283-Powerglide set
up has been replaced with a 350 and a 700R4.
I bought my 1969
Beaumont Custom Sport Coupe in 1998 and had a fresh paint job done.
The car is painted the correct Liberty blue color. It has the
original 300hp 350 engine and M21 Muncie 4 speed, dark blue vinyl
buckets and floor console. I like Beaumonts because they are a
Canadian car which makes them a little more different and rare than
a lot of cars.
My first car was a brown 1973 LeMans, back in 1977. I lived in
Washington in 1980 when Mt. St. Helens erupted and that LeMans ingested a lot of
volcanic ash causing mechanical problems. I loved that car and a few years ago
it occurred to me to see if I can find a surviving ’73 LeMans to fix up. In
2015, I spotted this olive green ’73 with only 23,000 miles, for sale in the
Chicago area. I flew down to Chicago, bought it, and had a great
experience driving it back to Alberta (in winter with the heater broken).
Eventually I will repaint it the same colour as my original 73' LeMans. I went to my
first car show where I learned about the Alberta Iron Indians Club.
