Vintage Ride of the Week: Late ’70s El Camino(?)

Posted in Vintage Vehicles with tags , on July 7, 2009 by Kent

Chevy El CaminoI saw this vehicle over the weekend. It appears to be a 1978 or 1978 Chevrolet El Camino. In any event, it is no later than 1987 as this basic style was from 1978-1987. There’s actually some basic information about this generation on Wikipedia.

While I generally shy away from Modern Classics when possible, some of them are just so attractive I can’t turn my head.

Vintage Ride of the Week: 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air

Posted in Vintage Vehicles with tags , on June 9, 2009 by Kent

1955 Chevy Bel AirThe “all new” 1955 Chevrolet was offered with “Motoramic” styling, improved handling and a new V8. Chevrolet matched smooth handling with it’s new performance by modifying the chassis to be longer, and added wider rear springs riding outside the frame rails, diagonally mounted shock absorbers to match, and an improved “Glide Ride” suspension. America took to the new 1955 Chevrolet 150, 210 and Bel Air (From OldRide.com, which has more information).

I saw this great truck in Crestwood, but I’ve been told that the owner lives in 16th Street Heights.

The Chevrolet light-duty Apaches offered a new appearance for 1959 including new interiors and 5 different exterior colors to choose from.  The featured a husky parallel-design frame, tubeless tires, dual headlamps, high-level interior ventilation, and options and accessories for your every need.
