My friend Alex Alverado who owns Alverado Mechanical in East Hampton is having a Classic Car Sale at his shop on 3 Mile Harbor today. I know Alex from high school when the two of us worked at the Mobil gas station in Sag Harbor. Back then we were pumping gas and changing oil. Today Alex is rebuilding engines in his shop.
Anyway, I went down there this morning to check out some of the cars that he was selling. “There was a gentleman that passed away in Westchester and we are selling some of his cars that I’ve been the care taker for. We have a 1955 Desoto Coronado with a hemi and a two speed power drive with original miles that runs perfectly. We got a 1951 Chrysler New Yorker convertible with original hemi, two speed convertible top, power roof and everything works. We sold this morning a 1958 Buick Custom Special, and we also have a 1964 Chevy Nova with a 350 4 Speed and we have a 1962 Chevy Impala SS with a 327 and a two speed power glide convertible. And we also got some other stuff.”
Pretty much everything I saw was very reasonably priced and because of the economy, there are a lot of people that are really looking to sell, so if you have an itch to get a really nice classic car, or if you just want to have a look at them up close and hear the engine roar, you should check it out.
