March 2015 Classic Car Events

Friday, February 27 2015

Mustang II - Development

Mustang II - Development

Thursday, February 26 2015
When the original Mustang hit the streets in 1964 it was, without doubt, an instant hit. With nearly 1.5 million vehicles produced through 1966, the small sporty compact Lee Iacocca had envisioned and helped launch broke sales records, selling quite well into the late 1960’s. Styling updates in 1967, 1969, and 1971 would see the car continue to grow in both power and size.  While many certainly embraced this growth, there were some...

Chevrolet Sportvan 108 Heads to the Shop

Thursday, February 19 2015
Now that Chubb Collector Car's Chevy Sportvan is here,  we have begun the task of making it suit our needs.  While the van is in good shape overall, it is going to need some love to be brought up to proper safety and aesthetic standards. It needs a minor amount of body work, new weather stripping, roof vents, and other miscellaneous chassis/body-related items. It also requires a full mechanical check-up of all systems. The minor...
II Little Respect

II Little Respect

Wednesday, February 18 2015
For as long as I can recall, I have been a huge car fanatic.  And, while a large range of vehicles interest me, probably none do as much as the Ford Mustang.  When I was about 8 years old back in the early 1980’s, I was visiting my aunt and uncle and can remember my uncle pulling up one day in his black 1978 Mustang II King Cobra. No, not a Ferrari or even a coveted 1st generation Mustang, no it was a humble Mustang II. ...

A sea of Mercedes, Ferraris, and Porsches had their moments of fame on the Gooding & Company stage this year at their Scottsdale auction.

Scottsdale 2015 Re-Cap: Muscle Cars and 60's Nostalgia

Friday, January 30 2015
Back when the Arizona auctions where centered around one particular auction house, the main craze at the time was Muscle cars. Over the years, that craze waned and was overshadowed with marques such as Mercedes, Ferrari, and Jaguar as they became the leading edge of the market from a collectability and investment standpoint. As the number of auctions offering cars for sale during "Scottsdale Car Week" have risen, so has the diversity...
