Pat’s 1934 Ford 3 Window Coupe

Representing 104+ Octane Boost

300-104-Pat Livingston 1934 Ford 3 Window CoupeWe bought our 1934 Ford in August of 2013. We found it on HotRodHotline.com. We have always enjoyed checking out the 34 3 window coupes at the car shows and cruises. When we saw this car we knew it was the one. Absolutely beautiful paint job. It has won many “Best of Show” awards. The car has a Downs body 350/350 with 1900 miles.

We are in the process of putting on a power brake booster with disc up front and drums on the rear. When we get that done we think she will be ready for cruising!


John’s 1968 Pontiac Firebird 400

Representing Iso-HEET® Brand Fuel Treatments

300-HEET-John Berzsenyi 1968 Pontiac Firebird 400I acquired our 1968 Pontiac 400 in 2004 from the original owner in California. I performed an 18 month ground up restoration starting in October of 2004 finishing in 2006. documented Numbers matching cars through PHS.

The paint is Black Cherry Pearl, while not a original color it’s very fitting on the car. My first car was a 1968 Firebird coupe and somehow retained the Firebird scripts and horn button from that car, they now reside on my new Firebird 400 convertible. The car is a pleasure to drive and draws attention wherever I take it.

Driven is the key word for this ’68 Firebird, it’s not a trailer queen. I’ve logged approximately 19,000 miles on her since the restoration and the smile on my face gets wider with each mile driven.
