    Thanks for having me in your group. I will be a good boy.
    My wife & I had a 55 gasser when we married in 1975. we sold it a few years later. We would like to find that car now. I have turned over every rock I can find and no luck. So I ask for your help. The vin.# is cold so out of the country, scraped or setting in a back yard waiting for us.

    I don't blame you for wanting it back :) 55 Gassers have been cool long as I remember. They seem to be in the middle of a fad or latest rage ( to me anyway) Seems you see a lot more of them these days? But wait maybe that cuz of the internet :)
    Any other peculiar marks to be on the look out for? I will be at Calif Hot Rod Reunion. Being I have always been a 55 guy I check em all out.

    We ran on Bryant all the time. We also ran on San Timoteo canyon.
    Did you have auto shop with Vern Casper. Good guy. How about Cy Barnett from Cy's auto parts.:cool:
     
  15. my dads 55, he ran high 11s on the street back in 68, 409, super t t0, 488s, sold it when he left for Vietnam, by the time he got home, spending 6 months in the hospital he went to find the car, kid he sold it to, blew the motor, put another motor in and totaled the car....my grandfather had abody shop for over 50 years and all body work done in lead, at one point had entire roof flowing in moulton lead to smooth it out...

    here it is lifting a wheel in the shift into second, before putting all mouldings on etc after paint

    Thanks guys, I realy like all of your cars. It gives me hope that I may find it with your help.
    I really don't have the funds to have 2 hotrods, but if this car turns up it will happen. ;)
