By: Angelo Loupetis

Ang's petrol-head passion doesn't stop with classic cars - he's on the lookout for goodies you didn't know you need

1. VL Walkinshaw guard emblems (pair)

With only 750 Walkys built they must have made a lot of these emblems as they seem to be frequently available. Yes you can spend $80 and purchase a reproduction set but if you own a genuine car or are building a replica spend the $130 for the real deal, and they are even in the original packaging! With a stash like this there must be a back story.

COST $130 plus shipping


2. Chrysler parts accessories dealership patch

I have sewn a few patches on items of clothing over the years, advertising my love of cars. This genuine Chrysler patch sure got my attention with its bright colour scheme and the famous Pentastar.

I can picture it on a set of grease covered overalls. The best part is, it retains the original packaging. I need a Mopar in my life!

COST $59 plus shipping


3. 1950s Chevrolet Owners Manual /Records Folder

R:\Web\WebTeam\Mary\Motoring\UC 441\nos\chevrolet-folder.jpg

If your classic car came with original documents you sure are fortunate. But if you don't have any period paperwork, that doesn't mean you can't track down some authentic period items to complement your car. This seller amazingly has 10 unused Chevrolet document/record holders with suggested servicing reminders. Just the thing your Chev needs to sort out that glovebox.

COST US$22.49 plus shipping & GST


4. Ford 1969 Demo 8 Track Tape

R:\Web\WebTeam\Mary\Motoring\UC 441\nos\ford-rca-stereo-8.jpg

People love to show off the quality sound of their new audio system. Back in '69 the 8-track player was all the rage, and your Ford dealer was happy to provide you with a sample cartridge that highlighted your car stereo's potential. Not only was it the "Ford family of fine cars" it was "a family of fine music". So they say!

COST C$100.00 (approx US$73.61) plus shipping & GST
