Our 1967 Chevelle

Vintage Show Car

After being converted to a race car in 1970 by Clyde Hemeon, this 1967 Chevelle was driven by Bob Yuille, Charlie Kane, and then to three championships between Jim Sewart and his brother Greg. The car competed until 1980 when it was parked beside a barn near Brookfield, NS. In 2004, it was discovered and moved to a field near the Halifax airport. In 2010 it was recovered by eventual HOAC founders. The car was fully restored in 2017 and has since been used to promote HOAC and help preserve Maritime stock car racing history.

Our 1979 Tour-Type Modified

Vintage Race Car

In 2018 we added this vintage Tour-Type Modified race car to our collection. Like the Chevelle, this car has an amazing pedigree. It was built in the late 70s for Roland Lapierre, Jr., who raced it with a Vega body bearing #134 throughout New England, winning the NASCAR Busch 100 at Westboro Speedway. The car was sold in the early 80s and raced at Stafford and Thompson, as a Pinto, #U2. It was eventually junked and left in the woods near Munroe (CT) where it was found, restored and raced in vintage series’. Once acquired by HOAC, the car was rebuilt and the number changed back to its original #134 as a tribute to Roland Lapierre, Jr. The car will compete in our Hot Rod Classics Vintage Race Car Series.
