    Glad to be here. I've got a '48 Chevrolet Fleetmaster that my dad bought on July 3rd, 1980. I was 9 years old then. My dad died 5 years ago and I got the '48 from my mom. The car is stock except for split exhaust with duals. I repainted the rims and made chrome bullet center caps. I installed chrome bullet lug nuts. The car was repainted once in 1968, and is Live Oak Green. It currently has 44,000 orig miles and has a CLEAN body with no rust ever. The car was made in Flint, Michigan in the actual GM plant that I work in now that makes Chevrolet Silverado heavy duties (GMT-900's). It is cool to know that my dad's old '48 rolled off of the line that I work on every night.

    Very cool story dude. My Dad taught me to drive on country roads in a '48 Chevy. It was hard to get the hang of the foot on the starter, heal on the gas, left foot pushing in the clutch. All of this was in the late 60's.
