About “chevzilla”

I purchased the car 20 years ago from original owner, for $250 It was originally purchased in Cumberland MD, in October 1966 from McIntyre Chevrolet for $2700.00 I have painted it about every shade of blue, now its Black with Silver flames. It was crushed about 4 years ago in a ice storm, On February 6, 2004 and took approximately 6 months to rebuild, By AL's Auto Body in Martinsburg WV.
Next on the agenda will be a Cowl Induction Hood, New Paint, New Exhaust.

About “Corsa coupe”

Purchased: 1987

I drove to Brighton, Michigan to purchase this car the night before I took the bar exam. It was one of the most straight, rust-free old cars I have ever seen.

The engine has been rebuilt three times since I purchased it, and the car has been repainted three times, once unintentionally (but that is another story).

The story of the last and most comprehensive motor rebuild can be read at
