1966 Corvette Coupe Restored with L88 427 Big-Block Power

  1966 Corvette Coupe Restored with L88 427 Big-Block Power Joe Merola turned a neglected 1966 Corvette coupe into a show-stopping restoration, complete with a venerable L88 427 big-block under the hood."In June of 2012, I was walking down Lewis Street in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, checking out the cars at the second annual car show," Joe said, "when a friend of mine that I had not seen in a long time yelled at me and asked, 'What are you working on now?' I told him nothing—I currently had no projects in my garage. He stated that he had a car he wanted to sell, so I walked over and listened to what he had for sale. He said, 'It's a 1966 Corvette Coupe,' so my ears perked up.

It even comes with a coffin in the back.

Halloween is right around the corner, and this 1990 Cadilac Brougham hearse is for sale. It rides closer to heaven thanks to sitting on a lifted Chevrolet K10 truck chassis. Make your costume a hazmat suit to handle social distancing concerns and use this beast to hand out candy on October 31.

One-Owner Barn Find! 1957 Chevy 210 Townsman Wagon Parked for 35 Years

  One-Owner Barn Find! 1957 Chevy 210 Townsman Wagon Parked for 35 Years What’s better than a one-owner 1957 Chevy 210 Townsman wagon that was parked in pristine condition 35 years ago and is ready to hit the road again? By our calculations, not much!All right, let's get back to square one with this amazing story. The new owner of the '57 Chevy is Danny Rathe of Rapid City, South Dakota. Danny is a small-town car dealer who specializes in older classics, collectibles, and hot rods and, as such, he has some connections in the area. One of his connections is Greg Wick, who had a client trying to sell his father-in-law Donald Russell's 40-acre property after his passing.

A Cadillac Brougham hearse is eye-catching in any specification, but this one grabs even more attention with its massive ride height. The beast sits on 17-inch wheels with rugged mud-terrain tires. A skull logo is on the swingout back door. A matching cranium as the hood ornament seems like a missed opportunity, though.

Inside, there are even more skulls, including on the steering wheel cover and glove box. In front, there's a big bench seat. A touchscreen display with Bluetooth support on the center of the dash gives the vehicle some modern amenities. It also has power windows, power locks, and adjustable steering wheel, and cruise control. The air conditioning needs servicing, according to the listing, but that wouldn't be an issue for Halloween.

The 1953 Cadillac Sixty Special was long, low, lovely

  The 1953 Cadillac Sixty Special was long, low, lovely The Fleetwood was the premier owner-driven Cadillac.Of course, the 1953 Cadillac was the final update of the 1948 Cadillac, the first all-new postwar Caddy. It inaugurated the classic Cadillac fishtail fin, and in 1949, received an all-new small block V-8. For 1950 it was totally restyled, though it still bore a strong resemblance to the 1948-49 car. Between 1950 and 1953 only small cosmetic changes were made, and you have to be a real aficionado to tell a ’50 from a ’51 from a ’52. But the ’53 was set itself apart a little more than its earlier brethren.

A coffin comes with the vehicle. Although, the smooth wood in the rear lacks the rollers and supports that would be in an authentic hearse. Any corpse in here is going to go for a heck of a ride sliding around the back of this vehicle on the way to the grave.

The hearse uses a 5.7-liter V8. Although, the Chevy valve covers are evidence that the mill isn't stock. The listing also mentions an upgraded, aluminum radiator. Power runs through a four-speed automatic transmission.

Another Hearse:

Judging by the photos, the rest of the drivetrain is a bit odd. The pictures show a front-axle differential and halfshafts, but the wheels don't appear to be getting any power. The listing notes that the hearse is rear-wheel drive, but with enough desire, it looks like you convert the setup to four-wheel drive.

Streetside Classics is asking $19,995 for the high-riding hearse.

Millennials More Interested In Owning Classic Cars Than Boomers .
And that's according to a study involving over 10,000 Americans. Part of the joys (and pains) of owning a classic car is the nostalgia and memories that come with the vehicle. It might be because of the events that happened when the car came out, or it could also be because the owner once had one in the past. Plus restoration and modification to keep up are also a fun thing to enjoy. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.
