When the World of Wheels car show reached Calgary in 2010, Brad Lake had a surprise waiting. Behind his fully restored 1956 Corvette was a color matched, perfectly restored, and equally beautiful 1956 Lonestar Meteor.

In 1957, there was another kind of Cadillac.

Heather Babecki, owner of Spookeay Marine in Coosa County, Alabama doesn't think twice about being one of the few women in a field absolutely dominated by men.

“If a wise man and a fool are arguing on a street corner, and you walk by; you can't tell which one is wise and which one is the fool,” she explained. “It's not worth arguing about.”
