1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS (Big Red)

Last updated Nov 20, 2007  

Photo of a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS (Big Red)


This is my first car, and father/son project. It came about when I was 13, and my dad was looking for a good excuse to get a 1966/67 nova, like his first car. Well, I ended up finding this one day right in his town, rather then New Mexico where the Nova was. couple days later, the ads gone, and I'm looking for a new car.
Fast forward a week, and Im going over to Dad's house. whats in the driveway? Big Red. Still stare at him today like i did that first time. This is a car I'm never letting go of. and if a girl try's to make me, can find more women. they ain't making these anymore! It officially will be signed over to me the day I graduate. doesn't mean Im not already spending money on him!
