  1. Vega! Dodge or Ford? & personal battles

    * Name the last time you saw a Cosworth Vega! http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/24/wednesday-wrap-23/ Which do you prefer: Dodge or Ford? http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/25/thursday-survey-23/ On personal notes, I have battled heart-related issues since I was born: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/24/daily-dose-wake-up-wed-23/ & now enduring issues which hope to make this true: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/25/daily-dose-theory-thu-23/ But, perhaps perspective is an odd thing? In some ways, feel like my best days [via road trips 2002-2011 & events-gatherings, at least 2 of which I am missing this weekend] are over. Yet, if this proves correct, once I get a job & get back on track, I shall have some spectacularly fabulous days ahead! Until then, my crafting enthusiasm for my website will have to suffice.

  2. New Cadillac XT5 Spotted Completely Undisguised

    Not a vehicle for me, but I kinda like the looks of it..... Cort www.oldcarsstronghearts.com 1979 & 1989 Caprice Classics | pigValve, paceMaker, cowValve "You never know all the riches you own 'till someone takes them away" __ John Schneider __ 'Take The Long Way Home'
  3. Three generations of Cadillac Eldorado

    No matter the car, I always enjoy seeing different generations of the same nameplate. Always cool to see the evolution of certain design elements, etc. Cort www.oldcarsstronghearts.com 1979 & 1989 Caprice Classics | pigValve, paceMaker, cowValve "I can't remember who I was back then" __ Tim McGraw __ 'Red Ragtop'
  4. Ford cars will see around corners

    With all of the other technological advances, along with the (in some cases) less visibility from the driver's seat, I'm a bit surprised these "seeing" cameras haven't been introduced sooner....

  5. Of trivia & trips

    * Put lots of energy & excitement into my road trips 2002-2011, but believe my most-memorable was Route 66, September 2009. A fun part was exploring towns, particularly town squares, like this in Girard IL: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/23/tuesday-trip-23/ Any guesses as to the car to which this engine belongs!? http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/23/daily-dose-trivia-tue-23/ Cort www.oldcarsstronghearts.com 1979 & 1989 Caprice Classics | pigValve, paceMaker, cowValve "Nothing lasts forever" __ Simple Plan __ 'Perfect'

  7. They've a long way go to, tho. AMEN to the coupe. Never understood why the Cruze hasn't received a coupe variant, when, as others have noted, the Cavalier & Cobalt coupes are all over the place. Still see quite a few around these parts, too.

  8. * Featured this past week! Truck Tuesday, class of 1952: Chevrolet, Fargo, Federal, Mercury http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/16/automotive-daily-149/ Motorcycle Madness on Thursday, class of 1962: Harley-Davidson, Jawa, Maico, Triump http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/18/automotive-daily-151/ Small & Complete Saturday, class of 1972: Chevrolet Vega, Ford Pinto, AMC, Plymouth http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/20/automotive-daily-153/ Cort www.oldcarsstronghearts.com 1979 & 1989 Caprice Classics | pigValve, paceMaker, cowValve "This is not where you belong" __ Trapt __ 'Head Strong'
  9. ...or a bit peeved ... LOL! My parents wanted a hatchback, but since the Cruze didn't come that way, they opted for the sedan. Wonder if they'll get yet another "2nd car" in the next year or so.....

  10. Scale towns, radio, Pontiac v. Camaro & cruising

    Stew, Cool ... that scale is the easiest to display. olds, 1) Agreed, it is a sweet hobby. Wish I had the room for that large of an HO-scale train layout! Those WW2 scenes would be interesting. 2) Aftermarket. It is a 1958 Motorola in a 1957 Ford truck. 3) I much prefer the full-sizers, too! 4) LOL ... interesting plans for each of 'em!

  11. * The Corvette is universally-known & regularly seen on the streets. It has enough longevity to be the 4th longest continually-used nameplate: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/21/sports-sunday-22/ For you modelers, a peak at engine detail for a 1966 Oldsmobile 442: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/20/scale-saturday-22/ Picturesque image of a 1952 Ford flatbed in TN: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/20/saturday-smorgasbord-23/ Cort www.oldcarsstronghearts.com 1979 & 1989 Caprice Classics | pigValve, paceMaker, cowValve "For a moment you can hardly breathe" __ John Mayer __ 'Dreaming With A Broken Heart'
  12. * Among my many hobbies is my HO scale model train layout, with many iconic places across the US. But, I enjoy the work of an OC,SHer. His scale layout is Metro City; this is a scene from 2 Trees Mall: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/17/wednesday-ratio-22/ An old Motorola radio still in use in an old Ford: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/17/wednesday-wrap-22/ Which would you rather have &/or drive: Pontiac or Camaro? Between the website & the Facebook page, seems the overwhelming majority is for the Pontiac! http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/18/thursday-survey-22/ Cannot remember the last time I was able to just go cruising, so 3 cruising options: Ford, Hudson & Cadillac. http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2015/06/19/automotive-daily-152/ Cort www.oldcarsstronghearts.com 1979 & 1989 Caprice Classics | pigValve, paceMaker, cowValve "There's got to be another way" __ The Who __ 'Who Are You?'
  13. Random Thoughts Thread

    Yep, I'd agree with that. The last 24-48 hours really have been jarring ... in way too many ways. I'm about done, with everything. *shrugs* Cort www.oldcarsstronghearts.com 1979 & 1989 Caprice Classics | pigValve, paceMaker, cowValve "What can you do?" __ Mickey Gilley __ 'Full Grown Fool'

  15. Father's Day - what are you getting dear ol' dad?

    Not sure yet ... TBD. Cort www.oldcarsstronghearts.com 1979 & 1989 Caprice Classics | pigValve, paceMaker, cowValve "I'll be with you" __ Cheap Trick __ 'The Flame'
