MetalWorks 1970 Chevy Z28 Camaro

Having heard the stories of many classic car enthusiasts over the years, I find there are some common themes.  The most consistent is stories about glory days from high school, the cool cars and unforgettable times with friends.  Perhaps it’s due to being highly influenced in our youth, or the heightened need to be “cool” and fit in but one…

MetalWorks attends Bonneville

Bonneville is hallowed ground for hot rodders, and we finally got the opportunity to hit the salt for ourselves.  Attending for the first time is similar to hitting Las Vegas for the first time...it's a visual overload.  We had a blast, and snapped a few pics to share...we hope you enjoy them.                …

Ron’s 1972 custom Chevy Cheyenne 4×4

Most of us have a classic car that we have dreamed of owning, but due to circumstances the opportunity has never presented itself.  With luck and time many dreams can become reality if we are patient enough…such was the case with Ron Braxling, and his dream of owning a 1972 Chevy Cheyenne 20 Super truck.  Ron had always been drawn…

Family jewel 1938 Oldsmobile

I love hearing stories of vehicles that have been with a family for decades.  The tales of multiple generations enjoying road trips and vacations, along with thousands of miles of cruising are golden.  The story of the beautiful 1938 Oldsmobile you see gracing these pages is just such a tale. Way back in 1938 Grover Stanton and his two sisters…
