    Hi Tri-Five lovers

    Thanks for letting me join your group. I drove a '56 Bel Air when I was in high school and dating my wife. Next month we'll celebrate our 53rd wedding anniversary. My wife was looking for a restomod and I was looking for a '56 Chevy. Last week I stumbled across this car, which i think is the best of both worlds. We hope to have it delivered next week. Until then, please enjoy these pictures.

    I see that you liked Road Runners back then. We've owned several big block Mopars in the last 20 years. Great picture of you and your bride.

    Thanks Histoy! That was my first new car. I special ordered it as a hardtop (in Limelight color w black/gray int) pistol grip 4-speed, bench seat, no power (cost too much), but ordered HD everything including Hemi suspension (necessary to get the larger wheels/tires), F60-15 RWL Polyglas GT tires on 15x7 Ralley wheels. It was an attention getting performance car which I loved (sure wish I still had it).

    I was in the USAF, a buck sergeant making ~$200/month! My car payment was $93/mo, and insurance cost me $50/mo.. so I got used to having NO money for anything...
