1967 Plymouth GTX 426 Hemi
When it comes to listing important muscle cars certain cars jump to the top of the list. When it comes to Mopar muscle cars, those equipped with the famous 426 Hemi are among the most coveted. Here's one such car, a 1967 Plymouth GTX 426 Hemi, in this case a 28,000-mile original that save for a striking repaint, is about as original as you'll ever encounter. Built on March 10, 1967, it is fully documented by Mopar expert Galen Govier and is #50 of 58 GTX Hemi cars in the Chrysler Registry. It is correct and faithful right down to the firewall-mounted certicard. This 1967 Plymouth GTX Hemi was featured on the cover of the September issue of Musclecar Enthusiast and is currently for sale.

1954 Chevy Corvette Nomad Motorama Concept Car Recereation
A few years ago, at the weekly Saturday morning Cars and Coffee show at the Mazda and Ford (now Taco Bell too) campus in Irvine, California I thought my eyes were deceiving me when I encountered what looked like the 1954 Chevy Corvette Nomad 1954 Motorama concept car. Thinking that the Harley Earl-designed Chevy Corvette Nomad had been crushed, I had to take a closer look. It was, as the photos here clearly show, an excellent recreation of the historic concept car, but one running a modern Corvette fuel injected LT1 V8 driving the rear wheel through a six-speed automatic overdrive transmission. Best of all, this particular Chevy Corvette Nomad a driver as owner John Bolstad has no problem driving it between his homes in Idaho and Southern California.

Mercury Retrospective
Starting in 1939 when it was introduced by the Ford Motor Company, Mercury was positioned between Ford and Lincoln in the Ford brand hierarchy, designed to compete against GM's Buick, Oldsmobile, and Pontiac brands. Over the years Mercury offered up some distinctive cars and in the sixties it introduced the first luxury Pony Car, the Mercury Cougar, which was a spin off of Ford's wildly successful Ford Mustang. Over the last decade Mercury offered few unique products and now it joins Oldsmobile, Plymouth, Pontiac, and Rambler in the graveyard of American automotive brands. Over the last five years I haven't shot too many Mercury magazine features but here's nine publication-worth Mercury cars from my archives. Mercury the automotive world is now poorer for your passing. All images copyright 2010 by Richard Truesdell and automotivetraveler.com, all rights reserved.

1975 Hurst Oldsmobile
George Hurst and Hurst Performance was responsible for some of the best known muscle cars as well as drag cars like the Hurst Hemi Under Glass Barracuda. While the 1969 Hurst Oldsmobile is considered as one of the muscle car era's high water marks, Hurst continued to build many limited production performance cars. By 1975 when this Oldsmobile Cutlass received the Hurst touch, the emphasis was more on refined performance than 0-60 times, it remained on top of the muscle car pyramid. This 1975 Oldsmobile Cutlass is a true Hurst Olds and except for a 1990 repaint, is all original, still owned by its original owner. Check out the swivel bucket seats, the console mounted tach, and the reversible front seat cushions. All images copyright 2010 by Richard Truesdell and automotivetraveler.com, all rights reserved.
