What's been in Bob's Garage: my favorite cars. By Bob Friedrich
1975 Corvette 350
After getting married and feeling my Jaguar Mark 9 was too much for me to own. I worked with a dealer who sold it for me and gave me cash and this lovely 75 Vette. I liked the car. I drove it for awhile but finally sold it.
1989 Corvette Convertible
This is my current ride. I bought it late one fall from the owner who was tired of it and gave me a great deal. I have had it for 8 years now and enjoy it every summer. The C4 model was a good seller, but far behind the C 3 one of the biggest sellers.
1972 Cougar XR7 Convertible
I bought this car late September at the Cooksville Auto Auction in Mississauga Ont as a car I would fllp. On the way back, I picked up two Buddhist nuns and almost hit a Moose somewhere before Thunder Bay. I was really surprised how nice a car it was. I drove it for few weeks and traded it onto the 69 Vette.
1974 Lincoln Mark 4
I owned three Lincolns one I never saw, but made a few bucks on. It. This model I bought in Edmonton and brought back to Regina sold it. I also had a brown one and a gold one.
1974 Ford half ton with what was called a hip pocket, Ford called it the Super Cab
I had to include this half ton it was a great truck I had for years with a beautiful truck camper to match. My best story is I was driving it to Moose Jaw one day. I had my Doberman in the back seat. Rebel was his name and he was an extra large one. I stopped to pick up this old man on the highway.
1956 Chevrolet Townsman Wagon
This was one of two 56 chevys I owned. I bought this from a friend for 1400 and he made money on it. I kept the car for 3 or 4 years. One morning I was driving my kids to school in early fall. A young teacher hit me on the rear quarter her fault. Her windshield completely frosted over. She was distraught I was so thankful. It gave me an opportunity to paint it classic silver over blue. The car sparkled a lot. Guys thought it was a Nomad because the colors were so good. I even drove it to work when the temperature was minus 40. I had in the garage it growled and bang it lit up.
1956 Chevrolet Belaire
I bought this car because I thought it was so cheap. The car was in Melville Sask. I started driving it home and the carb was so bad it hopped along. But eventually it smoothed out. I had a lot of fun finding a new carb. Eventually good old Auto Electric just rebuilt it in Winnipeg for a modest price.
1969 Cadillac Eldorado
I like to say my uncle Rudy was a Cadillac salesman in Edmonton. He had a ton of great car stories and owned a nice collection himself. I told him if he found a good car, I could flip to call me. He phoned and said he had this one owner Eldorado come get it. I did and drove it for the summer.
1976 Cadillac Eldorado
I bought this car for a good price. In those days a car that was 5 or 6 years old sold very reasonably. I paid 4 k for it. I drove for a 6 to 8 months. I must say it was in nice condition and ran like a dream, I sold it for a good buck and was thankful for the ride and the beauty it had afforded me. A lot of people loved the colors and the luxury it offered was something.
1965 Cadillac Coupe de Ville
This was my aunt's car. I bought it from my uncle in Edmonton and drove it home. It was a nice car to drive and off it went. At the time these Caddies were just becoming a little rare. The color was very close to one featured here.
