  1. Then my grandparents (CJ and Sherry Carlile) 55 Chevy they have owned for 46 years. We just finished a full frame off rotisserie restoration on it and got it back on the road after it was has been sitting off and on for the last 20 years. Was briefly running 8 years ago until the first time I ever drove the car and the distributor went out.

    Back in the late 70's early 80's -

    Thanks!

    People don't understand the significant contribution that Tri-5 Chevys have done for the betterment of our population.
    More people have been conceived in a 55-57 Chevy, than have met their demise in one [​IMG]
