American Muscle At Wheels and Deals

Wheels and Deals has been in the Bay Area for over 40 years, and in that time, we've seen just about every form of transportation known to man. Everything from snowmobiles to dirt bikes, aircraft to boats, and everything in between. Some of my personal favorites come from the time of high horsepower, and low fuel economy. Of course I am referring to the greatest period in automotive history; the muscle car era. From 1955-1975 were the golden years for hot-rodders, because it was a time of industrial growth and technological advances that made cars more reliable and more powerful than their predecessors. Of course, before 1950 there were formidable drag cars and decent track cars, but someone finally realized that the lower and more aerodynamic a car was, the faster it could go. That pretty much killed off the giants of the time, such as the Buick Deluxe, and the iconic Chevrolet Bel Air. Unfortunately, as each day goes by, these cars become more and more difficult to find, making them more valuable with time. 
Here at Wheels and Deals, we always have an eclectic variety of old-school cool to choose from. Right now my pick of the litter would have to be the blue 66' Chevy Malibu. Even though it sports the baby V8 of the year, it really stands out in a crowd. Each of these classic beauties start up without a hitch, and they all sound fantastic. In order from left to right are the 63' Buick Wildcat w/ custom everything, an all original 1959 Oldsmobile Super 88, a 73' Chevy Caprice on 26" wheels, the 66' Malibu, a 67' Ford Galaxie LTD, a 1966 Ford Mustang, and last but certainly not least, a pristine 1969 Pontiac GTO. Each and every one of these cars have lead long lives, and hopefully whoever becomes their new owner will appreciate the piece of history that they will be blessed with. If you have any questions about any of the cars listed here, give us a call at (408) 246-1000, or visit us in Santa Clara @ 3035 El Camino Real, between Lawrence Expw. and Kiely Blvd.
