Ron Masciangelo has always loved old cars. He owns the three beauties below. 
This means that when people talk to him about classic cars he understands
 how they feel. Collecting Classic cars gets in your blood.

1959 Olds '98

This car came from Alberta. Ron recalls buying the vehicle from an older gentleman who purchased it new. It was a favourite of Ron's because it was the exact same colour and year that his father had when Ron was growing up. "It brings back memories every time I sit in it and recall racing young punks on Durham Street." 
The vehicle has all of its original parts and has only had one new paint job.


 1969 Chev Yenko


 1957 Chevrolet Belair

This is definitely Ron's favourite. The 1957 Chevy Belair came from the United States and was partially restored when Ron bought it. It took him 2 years to complete the restoration and is one that Ron takes to Classic Car shows. In 2005 it won the Judge's Pick of the Day at the Ramsey Lake Car Show.

1987 Buick Grand National


Ron's 1987 Buick Grand National is one of the last 12 that General Motors ever made. It has only 26,000 kilometers and is considered the last Muscle Car that General Motors produced which could be driven right from the showroom directly to the track. It is what Ron calls "A Rare Breed".

The engine is a 3.8 Turbo with 475 horsepower. It can go from a dead stop to 60 miles per hour in just 7 seconds.

One of Ron's favourite adventures was in the Buick Grand National. He recalls that one evening he couldn't sleep, so he got up quietly, without waking his wife, Bonnie, and went for a drive in the Buick while still in his pyjamas. He drove into Sudbury, and since it was a Friday night, some young "punks" in a Mustang drove beside him and challenged him to a "drag" down the street. The light turned green and Ron resisted as the Mustang took off like a shot to the next set of lights. When Ron pulled up beside the Mustang, the young kids once again challenged him and sent a few derogatory comments his way. This time Ron was mad, and when the light turned green, he floored it. At the next lights, when the Mustang finally pulled up beside him, the kids showed a lot of humble respect for this "old guy in his pyjamas".
