Due to rising COVID-19 virus transmission and hospitalizations in Missouri and St. Charles County, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Cobblestone Nationals Car Show scheduled for September 6.

Following increased concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we’ve chosen to place the highest priority on the health and safety of our staff and visitors. We are very sad and frustrated that we are unable to host the car show for our supporters and the local community.

The Fast Lane Classic Cars restoration department was proud to deliver this 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle to Ron. This project has been going at Fast Lane since 2018, but Ron has been working towards this for over 10 years!

Ron bought his Chevelle in 2006. He started the restoration in his garage. He tore the car down and rebuilt the frame, but as he puts it, he ran out of the time and skills to continue working on the build.

The car sat for 12 years while Ron and his family battled serious health...

Classic cars, muscle cars, and exotics at Cars & Coffee event

This weekend we hosted a Cars & Coffee event to celebrate the grand opening of our newest showroom and service department. The air was chilly and the skies were gray, and there were several other automotive events happening around St. Louis on the same day; and still over 100 cars and several hundred people came to visit!

Herbie the Love Bug is a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle who is the star of several Disney movies and TV series. The lovable VW has a mind of his own and he is a serious contender in auto races where he often drives himself! His look has often changed slightly since his introduction in the late 60’s, but he is distinguished by red, white and blue racing stripes that run from front to back, a racing style number 53 on the front trunk lid, doors,...
