As you may have guessed by now, we are kind of Car Crazy. What would be the fun of it if we didn’t have a place to hang out with other folks who are as crazy about Hot Rods as we are. Last night was the final season meet at the A&W in Ladysmith. Giving a big shout out to Jason, the owner who is a fabulous host every Thursday evening through the summer. The weekly prize draws are appreciated, and the loyalty gifts handed out last night were awesome. It was a great time. Hopefully the winter passes by quickly so we can do it all over again next summer. See you all next year!!!

Vancouver Island Mustang Association presents our 32nd annual Classic Car Toy Run benefiting the Salvation Army's Christmas fund. Over the last 30 years we have raised over $50,000 and collected thousands of Toys for under privileged Children of Greater Victoria .
The engine has been upgraded to a 406 with approximately 3000 miles. Dual headers, MSD ignition, Edelbrock carb, Shift kit etc. She sounds mean, and does 8.0sec. in an 1/8 mile. New paint on the chassis with only 35,000 miles. Both sets of T-Tops (glass and fibreglass) and original rims with Eagle GT tires included.
Located in North Sanich.

1970 Chevelle SS
2 door hardtop

454 LS6 450 HP (Number Matching)
12 bolt posi
Cranberry Red / black racing stripes
cowl induction hood
Power front disc brakes
Black vinyl Interior
Bucket seats with center console
14 inch Rally Wheels
2 1/2 inch dual exhaust
This unrestored 1970 Chevelle was built at the Baltimore, MD GM plant. It was sold new @ Myers Motors in Ottawa, Ontario Canada.
It is sporting it's original number matching 454 cu. in. LS6 motor. But the number matching turbo 400 & 12 bolt are long gone. There is evidence that this Chevelle was drag raced back east as the home made front drive shaft loop is still there.
The gearing currently is a 2:73, but the owner has another 12 bolt rear end with a 4:10 rear end that would go with it. The build sheet indicates that this Chevelle was ordered with a 4:10 posi.
The car looks to have an older repaint and would be considered to be good driver quality. The interior is original and looks good for it's age.
As you well know, the 1970 Chevelle LS6 is a truly iconic muscle car. To find one of these Chevelles in unrestored condition is rare indeed.
You could buy and enjoy as is, or restore. The choice is yours!
Owner has all documentation, numbers and history which would also go with this car
$85,000 Canadian OBO
$67,000 U.S. OBO
Sorry no trades!

It was just brought to our attention that the link for the Smokin Oldies Colin Tennison Cruise was broken. It has now been fixed. So if you missed it when it was first posted, it is available for viewing now. Sorry for the inconvenience.
This Saturday. Don't miss it.
This last Thursday evening at the Dub in Ladysmith, this couple pulled in for gas. One sweet Chevy truck. Turns out they were on a cross country trip from Halifax. The hood of the truck was in bare metal and they were using a sharpie to document their trip. Getting signatures from people they met as they traveled. Thought it was kind of cool and worth mentioning in the blog..
