Thank you to everyone who helped make the search for the 2014 Northeast Collector Car of the Year so successful. Choosing amongst the entries was a herculean task and we hated to choose, but in the end, the committee took into account the amazing stories, as well as the amazing vehicles and made their choices. This week, we also have the return of Tex Smith, who'd been recuperating from a nasty fall Down Under, as well as a book review from Jim Clark. That, plus a cool exhibit at the Autry Museum on Route 66 has us dying for an end of summer road trip.  So where would you like to go?  We're thinking down to Julian near San Diego - it's famous for its apple orchards and lets us Southern Californians feel like it's fall. As always, email us your story suggestions, show coverage, readers rides, garage shots and general greetings to [email protected]. And Happy Rodding!

This week's featured classified ad is a 1970 Chevrolet CST/10. It's listed at $45,900 and is located in St. Louis, MO.  

This meticulously restored truck is of concours quality and has a very straight body with uniform gaps.
