Lambda Car Club member Troy Congdon comes from a family of General Motors workers. He joined the Car Club in 2009 and owns a 1967 classic Buick. The car, he says, reflects his fascination with chrome and color. I love chrome. Its one of my most favorite things in the entire world. Thats why I love 50s and 60s cars, he says. Especially the late 50s, they were all about chrome how much chrome you could put on the body and paint. That one (color of 1967 Buick) I believe is called fire mist red. BTL photo: Alexander Godin
