Pat and Elaine Carr have been members of the Rim Country Classic Auto Club since 2005. Pat's hobby is buying classic cars and driving them for a while after fixing them up. He then sells them and moves on to his next project.
Two cars Pat and Elaine plan to keep are a 1940 Chevy Special Deluxe 2-door sedan street rod and a 1966 Mercury Comet Cyclone GT convertible muscle car.
The 1940 Chevy has a 350 crate engine with 350 auto trans, power rack steering, power disc brakes and vintage air. It is Elaine's favorite car.
The 66 Cyclone GT convertible is one of 2,158 built. It has a 390 big block that puts out over 340 horsepower and 430 foot pounds of torque. It has a 4-speed manual transmission. The GT came from the factory with a fiberglass hood and optional disc brakes.
Pat's latest project is a 1967 Chevy El Camino with a high performance 327 cid engine and a 4-speed manual transmission. The 327 has "camel hump" 262 heads with Edelbrock intake and carb. Pat is installing power leather bucket seats and a CD player in the interior.
