Gary Bergenske has been a lover of cars all of his life. As a young boy he knew all of the cars, who made them and what was special about them. This was back in the mid 50's and 60's. Back in the years when the cars changed every year. New body styles were something everyone looked forward to each year.

When Gary turned 16, and began driving, it was in his fathers new 1967 Oldsmobile Toronado that he learned in. What a beautiful car it was. When Gary found one of these cars a couple of years ago, he had to have it. It has now been redone and drives like it was new. It is like driving down memory lane when he drives this one. It was in a car like this that he took to his first homecoming dance. His buddies thought it would be a great idea to take all of the wires off of the plugs that night and change them around. It made for an interesting night, remembered forever.
