This 67′ has a 427 with 385 hp and a 4 speed. A special grill sits in the middle of the hood which only came on the 427s. It has bucket seats, a console upgrade, and, of course, the 427 striping package! Jon, here’s a big thank you for wanting to sell! We are proud to own this amazing automobile!

This cycling duo is on a campaign ride for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Mike and Nate will travel a total of 3700 miles and raise $37,000.00 for their charity. They began in Boca Raton, Florida and will end in Los Angeles, CA. They hope to arrive at the set of Ellen DeGeneres and be invited on the show (we hope so too since Rick watches her every afternoon).  

Last year, Mike and Nate made a 55 day trip from the Florida Keys to Toronto for the Wounded Warrior Project. The two cyclists are shown here in their “Shout Out” suits. Nate and Mike work for Green Mann Advertising out of Boca Raton. These suits are another way of fundraising. One suit is covered in company logos from businesses that have donated to the cause. ANother suit hold loving sentiments from family and friends at $1.00 per word. There are a total of 9 suits so far.

If you would care to donate to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation please go to www.BikingForBoobies.com You can share their experience through photos and blogs as well.

Thanks Mike and Nate for stopping at MCC and reminding us the fight against cancer is still going on!

August 2013 Car of the Month

1935 Cadillac IMG_8095 IMG_8096 IMG_8097 IMG_8098 IMG_8100

 

This celery green 1935 Cadillac was modernized for today’s comfort and efficiency without spoiling the beauty of it’s former days. Under the hood of this Caddy lies 500 cubic inches and 400 hp auto-transmission. Inside it’s interior has been redone with full grain leather in a velvety cream color. It has 6 way power seats, stereo system, and brand new AC. One of Ricks favorite, it gets a lot of attention from our visitors and is the number one photographed car in the collection.

Shiny new Texaco fuel truck

 tanker2 tanker3 tanker4tanker1

Rick took a 1 ton 1926 Chevy truck and converted it into a Texaco fuel truck.  It is all original even down to the wood wheels. It’s a 3 speed, 4 cylinder little mover. The tank came from a 1925 fuel truck needing extensive restorations. Rick didn’t feel like waiting to have a fully assembled fuel truck so he swapped out the tank and will probably restore the 25′ sometime next year.
