July 8, 2014 — 

I purchased the 1919 Model TT Ford/American LaFrance chemical and hose fire engine in 2009 from Bob Taylor, the retired Healdsburg, California, fire chief. He had purchased the fire engine from the city and reassembled the vehicle.

While the fire engine had all of the parts necessary to restore the chemical tank system, much of the other fire equipment on the vehicle had disappeared over the years.

Graffiti2014: 1960 Chevy pickup still a working rig

July 8, 2014 — 

It all started in 1958, when my parents decided to acquire a 3-acre piece of land near Bakersfield, California. The site was suitable for summer campouts.

The next two summers were spent camping and building a cabin on the property with my parents and uncle. Eventually a borrowed utility trailer was returned and my uncle bought a new 1960 Chevrolet half-ton pickup to haul the building materials to the site.

Graffiti2014: Roseburg’s Geoffrey Stark celebrates ’64 Corvette’s 50th birthday

July 8, 2014 — 

Saturday won’t be the first time the goldwood yellow, 325-horsepower Chevrolet Corvette has taken a spin in the Graffiti Weekend cruise. It will, however, be the convertible’s maiden Graffiti trip as a 50-year-old.

Like Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty, the G.I. Joe action figure and the film version of “Goldfinger,” this particular Sting Ray entered the world in 1964. The car has pretty much remained in Roseburg for all five decades, according to its third owner, retired dentist and Roseburg resident Geoffrey Stark.

Graffiti2014: 1931 Model A Roadster Demo has long history of cruises, parades and picnics

July 8, 2014 — 

This is no doubt that the oldest demonstrator in existence is a 1931 Model A Roadster.

In 1931, schoolteacher Ruby Coryell had a 1928 Chevrolet that burned up in a Myrtle Creek garage. She needed a car, and Ford had a 1931 Model A that was being used as a demo. They let her have the Ford to drive until her insurance came in on the Chevy. Five weeks passed, and one day they told her the money was in — $210. She said she would put it on the Ford and keep it.
