Member since 2006 Robert Minion My interest in the antique car hobby began like every car guy between the ages of 12 and 16. My older brother Lloyd had a 1948 Ford Business coupe and brought me with him to a ďRod RunĒ at Diefenbaker Lake. In those days most organized events were limited to pre-49 cars which may sound odd today when we welcome anyone with an interest in vehicles of any vintage. Another early influence was my Brother-in-Law Ted who owned a 1956 Chevrolet Nomad. He took me along on one of the first Western Canadian 5-6-7 Rod Runís to Banff. I was impressed by (what seemed like) miles of 55, 56 and 57 Chevroletís of every body style imaginable. My first car was an old police vehicle a 1973 Chevrolet Biscayne. They had pulled the original interceptor motor and replaced it with a weak 283ci. That car was not mine for long as I sold it at a small profit to buy a more suitable car with a big motor. My second car and the first car of many that I regret selling was a 1968 Chevrolet Caprice with a 396ci. It was fully optioned with the exception of air conditioning. I have owned a variety of vehicles and Marques including a 1965 MGB for a very short time. This variety means that I donít have any special allegiances. I like any car that shows well. Currently I own a 1964 Pontiac GTO and a 1955 Chevrolet Sports Coupe. The GTO is an original Tri-power 4spd car but not numbers matching. My 55 Chev is an older restoration and an original California car.
