Scott Montoney’s 1952 Mercedes Benz 220 Cabriolet B

Representing the STA-BIL® Brand Fuel Treatments

Stabil-ScottMontoney_1952MB220CabrioletBThis model was in production from 1951-1955 with only 997 produced.

My car, Gertrude, has been in our family since 1958 when she was purchased at a used car lot in Munich, Germany.

She has been driven over 500,000KM, and is still driven regularly.

Roy Braatz 1955 Chevy Corvette

Representing 104+ Octane Boost

104-RoyBraatz_1955CorvetteWe get questions every timer we stop any where asking “what is it”? That’s the fun part telling people it’s a 60 year old Corvette and was the first year for GM offering a V8 engine and this is one of 15 copper color Corvettes ever sold out of the 700 ever produced . Then the most questioned asked is about the bubble top and trailer . Well the trailer is a original 1947 tear drop that we can sleep in and the bubble top is one of five ever made for the Autorama of the 50’s GM had made for the shows. We’ve been around the country from Ca to NY as seen here, love driving it and showing it on the highways of America over the last 33 plus years we’ve owned it.

Ron Lipke’s 1978 Dodge Warlock

Representing Iso-HEET® Brand Fuel Treatments

Heet-RonLipke_1978DodgeWarlockHi my name is Ron Lipke , I am from Pembroke Ontario , Canada . I have owned my Cool Ride a ‘78 Dodge Warlock for 35 years . The truck underwent  a full frame off 3 year resto / mod . A  408 stroker engine was added to replace the stock 360 . The truck has been lowered & is a dream to drive on the open highway.

Chad Fryer’s 1978 Chevy El Camino

Representing Start Your Engines!® Fuel System Revitalizer

SYE-ChadFryer_1978ElCaminoThis ’78 El Camino wears custom mixed maple with Mercedes silver.   The interior features a special ordered Le Carra leather wrapped billet steering wheel and custom bench seat for extra cruisers.  There is a custom made flush mounted tonneau that I designed and built specifically to not hide the upper stainless trim.  The suspension is lowered and features 18″ Iroc wheels.  As far as under the hood she still has her numbers matching 305 with original 2bbl carburetor as its for cruising.

Flowmaster exhaust compliments the V8.  Finally the front bumper is smoothed out by shaving the front license plate and all emblems are shaved.   Thanks for looking!

Mark Odom’s 1949 Ford F1 Pickup

Representing 303® Products:

303-MarkOdom_1949FordF1PickupI have had the pickup since 1980. About ten years ago my wife told me to get it fixed up for our 25th anniversary. So I did, it took several years ,3 body shops and 2mechanics but I got it done.
