The 1981 Camaro Z28 was one of my favorite cars! Even though by 81, the Camaro’s 350 was down to about 175hp, the car was quite fast and simply stunning! The large glass T-tops were great on those warm summer days, making it a fun car to drive. A friend of mine had one and we spent many hours cruising in this gorgeous car.
I’m a little late in publishing some of my pics from the 2016 Autorama car show. It’s been three years now that John Scotti and East Coast Carz put on an exceptional show at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal. As usual the cars are all top notch works of art. This year I lucked out and received a free pass to the show. That put a huge smile on my face! I strongly suggest to anyone who has a love for classic cars, hot rods, muscle cars, modified cars, etc… to attend this show, you won’t be disappointed!
These cars bring me back! A friend of mine had an 86 in red and we really enjoyed taking joy rides in it. It was really an over sized go kart. Zipping around town in them was quite the thrill. Revving the engine close to red line! it just came to life! What fun!! I really miss these little rockets!!
Every Friday Night, there is a great car meet/show in Laval. It is so enjoyable to walk around on a warm summer night appreciating all the beautiful works of art- as I like to call them. I feel nostalgic seeing all the vintage cars, reminding me of when they were parked in these lots decades ago. Brings me back to a time when I was with my dad and we would look at different models parked next to ours. Incredible how the years have passed. Yet these cars live on, because of the love and care their owners have for them.
On this particular Friday, June 17 2016, there was a flash rain storm! Took everyone by surprise. It was incredible to see, once the rain stopped, everyone started to clean and dry off their cars. You could feel the love the owners had for their pride and joy.
Once again John Scotti and East Coast Carz put on an exceptional show. The cars were all top notch works of art. I truly enjoyed this show. I strongly suggest to anyone who has a love for classic cars, hot rods, muscle cars, modified cars, etc… to attend this show, you won’t be disappointed!
I attended the Autorama at the Montreal Olympic Stadium on Oct 12.2014. I have to admit I truly enjoyed myself. Seeing all these spectacular cars under one roof was quite the treat! As usual I went nuts and took over 300 pictures and shot a video. This was a show that I always attended in the past. I used to take my son and my nephew when they were kids. We always had such a great time. I was disappointed when the show stopped happening. For many years I waited for it to return. John Scotti and East Coast Carz did a phenomenal job bringing this show back to Montreal. Lets hope it’s here to stay.
We recently had the misfortune of having to make an insurance claim on our car. My wife had a fender bender! Nothing serious, no one got hurt but both cars needed repair. When dealing with the insurance company however, some bad memories came back. Years ago, my wife and I got hit while stopped on the auto route. Traffic had come to a standstill, but a distracted driver, who may have been on her phone, didn’t even notice that everyone was stopped and drove into the car behind me, who in turn slammed into the left side of the rear bumper. Fortunately again, no one was injured. The three cars involved where not so lucky.
Back then, just like now, the insurance company suggested the garage that we were to take our car to have it repaired. They claimed that the repair would be done faster, better, and that the job would be guaranteed for the life of the vehicle. Needless to say I took their advice. The garage in question was in the industrial park close to our home. They did not even have a courtesy car to give us! They did however do a great job and I had the car back within a week. Or so it seemed… click here or on the pic to continue reading…
