Chevelle Siblings Bring High-Desert Satisfaction

As a youngster pumping high-octane gasoline for local muscle car owners in Southern California’s San Gabriel Valley during the 1960s, Mark Lundquist could only dream of owning a 1965 Chevrolet Malibu Super Sport (SS). As if to make up for lost time, however, Mark now has four Chevy SS cars (as well as a beastly “standard” 1968 Camaro) of varying vintages parked in a Joshua Tree, California, garage that inspires envy in every guest who drops in. And yes, this collection includes a ’65 Malibu SS.

Other drivers speed past this Czech oddity without a second glance, seemingly oblivious to the car’s dorsal fin and triple headlights. But as Paul swings the Tatra into a parking space in front of a favorite local bistro, it’s as if he has brought the black teardrop to a stop in the middle of a Hollywood spotlight. Here come the second glances, the puzzled questions. "What in the world is that?"
Purist Loves This Car Just The Way It Is

We’ve been asking–actually, begging and pleading–for a ride in this monument to Americana but James Chen always found a way to politely turn us down. He is, he says, willing to share his Ferraris and Lamborghinis and Cadillacs, but he and his family enjoy such a personal relationship with this particular car that he seldom shares it with outsiders. He finally gave in.
Saab Sonett: Two-Stroke Heirloom
Play
In 1967, Glenn's parents special-ordered a silver Saab Sonett II from a Florida dealer and, as a result, Glenn spent his childhood riding to school not in Detroit’s muscle cars of the 1960s and ‘70s but in a 1500-pound Swedish sports car with a 70 horsepower, two-stroke engine. The Sonett has followed Glenn through life. In 1980, when he was eighteen years old, Glenn bought the car from his parents for $300 and, with the help of his father, gave the car enough energy to carry Glenn through college and into adulthood.

Very nice. Realized his dreams and improved on them. I have a lot of respect for anyone that can walk the talk. Well done!

A bold choice or a missed opportunity on this, the 50th birthday, of Ford’s icon?

Having a garage like that is my dream. Even though I am only in college now I am already planning on a very small house so I can have a large garage, or buying a warehouse and converting the office into my living space.

This is only one of many reasons why i watch these videos on Petrolicious is because its very hard to fake passion and this guy has it in spades. He has a small shop were he can go and work/play and really indulge his love of cars that im sure we all have for these lovely beasts. It certainly looks like a little slice of Chevy paradise from what i can see. My two favorite parts of the video are seeing the contrast between a original car and modified one also seeing that the cars he has are really been… Read more »
