1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport (SS)
Last updated Jul 28, 2010
My very first brand new car. I traded a 1958 Dodge hardtop for it. This picture was taken on the day I brought my newly born 2nd daughter Martha home from the hospital. It was awesome. Ford Fairlane 390s didn't stand a chance. I wish I had this car back now.
I did run this one at the strip, but don't remember my times. It had terrible traction problems from a dead stop, but on the street at a rolling start, it was awesome.
396 CI 360 HP, 4 speed positraction, factory tach, on the dash at your right knee (awful to see), horrible traction with Firestone 500 tires on it. It came with the Red wall tires, can't remember the brand and I had them change them at the dealership (how dumb).
I put Chevy station wagon wheels on it which were about 2 inches wider, made it look cool. As you can see in the picture, it was popular to run with the hub caps off.
