Charlie Hurst writes: I took these last weekend right as it started to rain. My son and I drove around town and turned a few heads! It's interesting how both cars are radically different in their design, yet it would be hard to pick one over the other. And having all that chrome in contrast to the maroon paint.....that's something you don't see anymore. More on his '48 Plymouth...



Rick McLaren of Edmonton Alberta visited Hilltop Auto in Peace River a few years ago... here are his pictures of some of the cars there.


This vintage pic of Rocko's Heavy Chevy was, in reality, taken in 2004.
This Impala Sport Coupe is Rocko's favorite of all his old iron because
"It's nice, but not TOO nice. I've had cars that were so cherry it wasn't
any fun to drive 'em. This car is FUN." Presently powered by a Camaro HO 305, backed up by the original Saginaw 3-speed manual, and a set of 3:08 gears, she runs great, and the well-seasoned 20-year old glasspacks make running her up (or down) through the gears a real treat.
