Motorhead: 2009 Harley XR1200

“It’s been a while since I’ve seen a motorcycle as the ride of the week, so I figured I’d send mine in. Love owning a Harley, this one has a five speed air cooled engine and gets about 90 horsepower. The top speed is 120 miles an hour, I’ve tested it and had it close […]

Motorhead: 1962 Dodge Polara

“I’ve struggled to keep this factory-like, even down to the hubcaps. It has been completely restored and only gets taken out a couple of times a year to keep it as pristine as possible. My favorite thing about this car is the push button transmission that Chrysler was famous for in the ’60s it just […]

Motorhead: 1977 Ford Mustang

Motorhead: 1977 Ford Mustang

“I will admit I first fell in love with this style of Mustang while watching Jaclyn Smith drive one on ‘Charlie’s Angel’s’ on television. It certainly isn’t the best looking or best performing generation of Mustangs, but just to know that I own a piece of American automobile history is good enough for me.” To […]

Motorhead: 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air

“This car is my prize possession. My pride and joy,” Duncan said. “My brother and I bought it when it was rusted out in a field and restored it completely. I love taking it to cruises and shows and just out driving it. It seems like the 1950s Chevrolets strike a chord with everyone. They […]

Motorhead: 1950 Willys Overland Jeepster

Motorhead: 1950 Willys Overland Jeepster

“I love that more or less the Jeep Wranglers still look like the old Willys Jeepsters did in the ’40s and ’50s. They were originally created for the Army, but they have stayed popular because of how versatile they are. I treat this like a treasure, because it is one. It is truly a piece […]

Motorhead: 1980 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham

Motorhead: 1980 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham

“This car is like a boat,” Cole joked. “I’m sure it could win a battle against any of these newer cars any day. I originally bought it about 15 years ago, to try and restore it, then gave up on it and let it sit in my garage, my buddy Dave and my brother Pat […]

Motorhead: 1968 Pontiac Catalina Convertible

“This was proverbially the car driven by a little old lady to church on Sunday and to the grocery store,” Remetz said. “It was my aunt’s she bought it brand new in early 1968, and when I took ownership when she died in 1982 it only had a little over 6,000 miles on it. I’ll […]

Motorhead: 1973 Chevrolet Vega

Motorhead: 1973 Chevrolet Vega

“I bought the car because it has the same last name that I do,” Vega joked. “It was kind of a rusted out shell when I found it. I completely redid the interior and had the exterior repainted and got some new wheels. I love taking it out on weekends and to car cruises and […]

Motorhead: 1969 Stingray

Motorhead: 1969 Stingray

“Since we just celebrated the fourth of July, I figured I’d send in my all-American car, the 1969 Chevrolet Corvette, one of the highlights of American automobile industry in my opinion. It has a four speed manual transmission and an eight cylinder engine. Gets about 400 horsepower. Lots of power for a car that’s not […]
