I think “Fast Times” was their engine program back in the day?
Spiro Pappas, Chuck Samuel etc.
Correct on all counts.

You can see Chuck's Camaro in the background. That's Eric Van Berkum (the blonde guy - aka "Eric the Chef") in front of the car.

Driving impressions, or whatever?

My cousin's husband had a small collection of '20s Buicks of which I have driven a couple. My favorite was a '28 5 window coupe with rumble seat.

I also drove his '29 Lincoln dual cowl phaeton. The Lincoln had a 396 ci flat head V8. Gobs of torque, smooth and quiet, with a feeling like you owned the road. - Bill W

Acceleration, braking, steering effort and just the ride itself. As compared to a modern car like a Lincoln or a Caddy.
