Note: The following story was excerpted from the February 2016 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Powel Crosley Jr. was an American success story. In 1920 he developed an inexpensive radio and was soon the largest radio manufacturer in the world. Later Crosley built refrigerators; his “Shelvador” was the first to put shelves in the door. For good measure, he also owned a radio station and the Cincinnati Reds baseball team.

1931 Ford Model A Ice Cream Truck

by Jack Stewart

Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2016 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Joseph Hornacek of Rochester Hills, Michigan, is certainly a man of good humor. He’d have to be, considering that he purchased a disassembled and incomplete barn-find Ford Model A truck and turned it into the pristine vehicle you see here. He needed some of that upbeat mood, plus patience and skill, to see a difficult 10-year restoration through to the end.

2005 Cadillac BLS Wagon

2005 Cadillac BLS Wagon

The premise underlying Cadillac’s decision to market a subcompact car in the U.S. beginning in 1982 was perfectly sound. The luxury division of General Motors was looking for a way to reach younger consumers, and a smaller, more affordable offering made sense. It would enable the brand to bring new buyers into the fold sooner rather than later, and hopefully those customers would move up to a larger, pricier Cadillac when trade-in time came.
