No Stone Left Unturned: 1972 Chevy K5 Blazer
Today's philosophical conundrum: Did the popularity of early SUVs lay the groundwork for the proliferation of modern SUVs, or did the popularity of modern SUVs make classics like this 1972 Chevrolet K5 Blazer more popular?

Beautiful Sunburn: 1969 Plymouth Barracuda
The third generation Plymouth Barracuda, which ran from 1970 to 1975, gets quite a lot of respect in muscle car and collector car circles. In our opinion, the first and second generation cars deserve more attention than they get.

However, if you look the market on a shorter timeline, you’ll see strong interest in the same year run Pontiac Firebirds, Formulas, and Trans Ams, and for good reason. This 1986 Pontiac Trans Am is a beautiful example of the generation, as well as the modern classic American market that’s largely underestimated.
Retro Racer: 1972 Triumph Trackmaster Replica
