I have met the owners of four of these cars and want to dig deeper into their vehicles with more photos and the stories behind the cars. I met Ernie (’37 Pontiac Coupe); Jerry, ’66 GTO Convertible; Jim, ‘.70 Ford LTD Country Squire; Tom, ’70 Lincoln Mark II and spoke with the owner of the Gran Torino ‘Starsky & Hutch’ car but the owner of the silver 1940 Buick Eight has eluded me (but not my camera lens!).
I spoke with Ernie at Downer’s Grove about the dark grey ’37 Pontiac Business Coupe and met John who owns the grey ’40 Buick Special Business Coupe and will work on the car page. Also, I’d omitted mentioning Geno’s two tone ’56 Oldsmobile 98 Coupe; I’d spoken with Geno when I saw his car at my first Lombard Cruise Night in June but that was before I had the idea to do my ‘car stories’.
