1924 Hupmobile Model “R” Touring

By Bob and Ruth Valentine When I entered the antique car hobby in the mid 1970’s with a 1932 Chevrolet, I had never heard of Hupmobile. Because I was the only one in my immediate neighborhood, College Point, and was seen driving around in a 45 year old car, people cleaned out their garages of […]

1914 Ford Model T Fire Truck

Every Antique Has A Story

By Docair Jerry Malkes I spied this 1914 Ford Fire Truck at Lynbrook’s 2013 Expo. This completely restored Model T Fire Truck has a very interesting story.

Moving Right Along

By Art “Doc” Kreiger Art opens the garage door and starts talking to the 1947 Hudson Super Six coupe that has been his for some-odd 30 years. (Yes, he talks to old cars, doesn’t everyone? You know you do, and we know they hear us.) Hey Henry, Old Buddy, how you been? C’mon, don’t shy […]

“Freaked Out”

“Becoming an Alfisti”

One of my professors was a team manager of the Ferrari North American Race Team (NART), allowing me a unique opportunity to spend time in the pit area at the Daytona 24 Hour and Sebring 12 Hour […]
