Pucci pair

Lloyd Wolfe has been an active AAAR member for the past dozen years attending tours, car shows and a full range of club events.

In April of this year, Lloyd was the lone AAAR club member to enter a vehicle in the 2015 Majestics car show in Regina.

Together with friend Chris Rocen of Esterhazy, the pair created a beautiful display presenting a pair of meticulously detailed 1983 Lincoln Motor cars.

The display showcased two rare one year only Designer Series Pucci Edition cars. Pucci Editions were produced only in Blue Flannel Mist paint paired with carriage roof tops in Blue Cambria cloth.

Lloyds car is the four door model built for the Canadian market with a two barrel 302 engine, while Chris’s Texas find car is a two door model built for the American market with a fuel injected 302.

The display was rounded out with print material covering original bill of sale, advertising and promotional materials specific to these Designer Series models.

Lloyds car was purchased new in 1983 at Carnduff Motors in Yorkton by John, his father who owned it until 1993 when he handed it’s ownership over to Lloyd as custodian of this special car with just 28,000 kms on the odometer.

The current 39,000 km mileage though still low, attests to the fact that Lloyd doesn’t just let the car sit unused.

Automobiles run deep in the Wolfe family with Lloyd’s dad starting a Chrysler dealership in 1950 and running it until 1970 when Lloyd and a partner took over. They changed the operation to a Ford Mercury dealership called Wolfe’s Garage Ltd. and ran it until 1990.

Currently Lloyd enjoys working on, showing and driving a number of antique and special interest vehicles that are in his collection.

A 1951 Plymouth Cranbrook that his father sold new to Lloyd’s grandfather and a 1977 Ford LTD that Lloyd sold to his father-in-law have direct family connections, while a 1950 International ¾ ton restored as a B/A delivery truck pays homage to his father, who once worked for British American Gas.

The collection also includes a 1967 Cougar that Lloyd bought from the original owner elderly lady in California and a 1971 Ford half ton restored as a Commemorative Edition to mark the actual year Lloyd and his brother inlaw signed their dealership on with the Ford franchise.
