For its This Car Matters movement, the Historic Vehicle Association is asking people to share their stories about special vehicles — ones that helped to shape their lives and communities, and our history and heritage. Check out the videos below, and if you haven’t yet shared your story, head on over to the This Car Matters page on our website to find out how you can participate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Edelbrock's Boss 302"

1969 Ford Mustang Trans Am Boss 302, owned by Vic Edelbrock

This Car Matters because it is one of two remaining cars produced by Ford Motor Company, Kar Kraft and Bud Moore, for the 1969 Trans Am racing season. This Skunkworks racer was driven by George Follmer in period and is raced today by Vic Edelbrock.

"Cherished Lincoln"

1925 Lincoln Judkins Coupe, owned by Patricia Irvin

This Car Matters because it is a very well-preserved and unrestored example of a 1925 Judkins Coupe. It has 28,000 original miles and is carefully maintained by a passionate owner.

"Stylish Survivor"

1958 Fiat 600 Sport Viotti, owned by Donald Osborne

This Car Matters because it is an unrestored example of a small and elegant special-bodied Fiat. This car was imported in the late ‘50s as a gift for a Connecticut family’s Swiss au pair.

    Regarding the 1958 Fiat 600 coverage, if the car matters so much, why so few shots of the car and so many of the owner. There was not a single view of the front of the car. Great car, terrible video.

    Don't know why this car matters either. It's got cloth seats, old brakes, is a truck to drive and it's really old looking. A lot of money spent for nothing if you ask me. Now that Mustang-that's a real man's car. Bet those side pipes and V8 sound boss.

    I agree with J.C. This video is terrible. Who cares about the guy. We want to see the car. I had a standard Fiat 600 which was a very different automobile. I wanted to see this beauty.

    Lot's of whiners posting here and they should be enjoying the outstanding cars, owners, and videos. There's more to like than cookie cutter Mustangs but some folks can't see past their nose. :)

    THE BOSS IS A PERFORMER ---NOT ENUF SHOTS OF THE FIAT --- THE REST IS NOT WORTHY OF COMMENT.

    THE "BOSS 302" IS PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THE RAWNESS AND RAW POWER OF CLASSIC MUSCLE CARS AND THE MEN WHO DROVE THEM
