I do not remember that chrome bar on the front. Exciting they are here, but will have to wait till I see more on them. Was the Sport model, top of the line Monochromatic? 🤔

Well, the white one in the video is the Premiere, featuring body-color lower cladding.  The RS, IIRC one level down from the Premiere, features gloss black painted lower cladding.  The lower trims get black textured lower cladding, as seen on the black one in the video.

Man, didn’t even get to see the Blazers there yet...oh well.

No matter, today I picked up a 2019 Equinox LS in Kinetic Blue.

Posted a few pics of FB, as I get a few more (snowing here now), I will post those bad boys here.....

One thing I like about this color is that it gives it a sporty look without the chrome......

Decided to get rid of stock AM Radio.. cut dash and slipped in a new sytem. Ran wires to the rear after I cut holes in the top, cause these cars only came with a speaker in the middle of the seats and in the middle of the dash. This spring I will paint dash and what not...

So who's going to rescue that mid-60s Grand Prix out of that garage?

That's a '64. I consider it 'rescued'; it's mine. I am going to do some 'purging' in the garage this week, but I'm working on the '59 right now. But people around me are increasingly on me to get something done with it (including numerous offers to buy), perhaps me posting this pic is looking for more 'kicks in the ass'. I have the resident '63 Corvette still in my shop- it should leave in a few weeks (I hope), opening 1 bay up- perhaps then, along with the Purge, I can look at giving some attention to it. The motor is free, and it hasn't shown any deterioration since it was garaged... but I would have to go thru all systems to attempt to re-road it. It's been sitting for... many years now.

Yeah everything in time. Seats and upholstery was redone but the dash... I was always afraid of doing a repaint but if I take my time this Spring and mask everything off properly I should be good to go

Always fun working on your own ride...

 

Love the vintage action!

 

Granted it is just plastic but I still really love 53 to 56 Ford Trucks....

Its really the only way to go in my opinion. Last hope for fun of a Shade Tree Mechanic. New cars are too techy for major things. Being able to pull an engine, tranny, etc is confined to older rides.

Course always fun if you have the time and money to take a newer auto you like that say has a blown motor and decide you want to convert it to an EV for local commute fun. :P
