'64 Chevy II Chuck Huff • Wichita Falls, TX A '50 Chevy pickup with a 327 and a four-speed was Chuck Huff's high school ride, but the car he remembers the most was the Chevy II drag car across the street from the school. "During class he would fire it up and tune on it. I don't remember much from school, but I do remember that car," Mike says. A couple years back a friend tipped him off to a clean 83K-mile Chevy II, and Chuck brought it home. Originally just a small-block swap and A/C was the plan, but things just mushroomed from there. "Where do you stop?" Chuck asks. We couldn't tell you Chuck, we're just as bad.

'70 Valiant • Glen Knudsen Mount Gretna, PA During his freshman year of college, Glen Knudsen parked this Valiant next to a '68 Camaro and the owner shook his head and told Glen he had "two doors too any, and two cylinders too few." Undaunted, Glen quickly upgraded to a 318 ci, and eventually a 300hp 360 crate engine. Still, everyone wants to know, "Why a four-door Valiant?" Originally purchased by his grandfather, the Valiant was handed down to his dad, and then to Glen to be his first car-though he began learning to drive it when he was 10. It even carried Glen's son home from the hospital. So when people ask he always replies, "How could I not keep it?"
