Most people living today have often heard the phrase ‘woulda, coulda, shoulda’. Within the circle of the collectible car hobby, who hasn’t used that saying – usually followed immediately by the words “sold it” or “let it go.” My 1960 DeSoto Adventurer belongs in that group... one of several ‘collectible automobiles’ I have owned since officially joining the hobby in the mid-‘80s. It was a strong number three example, and a good 20-footer... a car I could be proud to be seen in, but that never brought home a trophy.

Buick has bombarded our TVs with commercials proving that GM’s pseudo-luxury brand has changed. The rebranding by Buick is smart. It had a stodgy vibe. It was what grandparents drove. And also, Buick has suffered as being a tweener brand, as in it was nicer than Chevy but not quite as luxurious as Cadillac. And GM also has the GMC brand that is kind of similar.

My weekly featured cars come to me in many ways. Sometimes it’s a car I saw in a parking lot as I drove by, often it’s one I saw at a car show – like last week’s story about Kevin Williams’ 1950 Cadillac convertible. But once in a while, it involves a chase to catch up with and follow a car to its driver’s destination.

My husband got me hooked on listening to podcasts, specifically the “Astonishing Legends” podcast. I am trying to catch up by listening to a couple of episodes per day at work. I’m only two years behind now. The hosts are hilarious, and I learn so much with each episode. Now, when my husband goes on and on about all things paranormal, I understand what he’s talking about. I’m still not into scary things at all, but the stories are very interesting. We are actually taking a weekend away to go to a Bigfoot conference.
