Rae & Carol  Welcome to  This isn't about race cars or car racing. I am Rae and this is a site to showcase my classic cars (ergo Rae's Cars). It's also my intention to share information on Chevelles and Impalas.  Not that I am any kind of expert, that's for sure.  I have always dreamed of having a classic car but never did anything about it until  October 2006 when my wife let me drag home a rusted out 62 Impala from Prince Albert.  Not having worked on cars to any extent at this point, I did not have the courage to start this seemingly overwhelming project.  So the car sat in my garage for a year  while I pondered on whether or not I shouldn't have held out for something that was a little less of a challenge.

I put the Impala up for sale and was seriously considering the acquisition of a 1966 Malibu that my golfing buddy had up for sale.  This car was primo and ready to roll and I new that this car would hold no surprises.  Before my friend decided he was really ready to part with his car, an opportunity came up that I couldn't resist.  This was a 1966 Chevelle SS396 with a fresh paint job and rebuilt numbers matching big block and it was in my price range.  Needless to say, the rest is history.  I picked up the car and spent the winter finishing it off in time to take it to a few car shows in the summer of 2008.  The Impala never did sell, but with the help of many friends in getting my Chevelle out of the garage, I found the confidence to start in on the first car and this web site will document my progress.

You will notice a few other categories in the left column.  I thought I might as well put a few things about some of my other hobbies up here while I was at it.  Sharing information seems to be a good way to meet new people.  So please sign my guest book on the left.See the links on the left for info on the 62 Impala, 66 Chevelle SS 396, Risteaucrat & Wurlitzer Juke Boxes, HO model railroads and some other stuff.
