About “BlackWing”

I've wanted a 1959 or 1960 Chevy for as long as I can remember. Mostly I was looking at coupes and convertibles... Then I saw this wagon on eBay a little while back and flat fell in love! It's in decent condition and drives 100%. All I need to decide now is will it be a stock restoration, a Resto-Mod, or an all-out Street Rod

About “Old Red”

This is my dads car. He bought it for nine hundred dollars in the early 70,s It was our family car for many years and then it was parked and buried in the garage for 18 years. Dad retired about 15 years ago. He had the engine rebuilt, did all the basics and put it on the road. A proud moment.It's a daily driver except winters ( Canada Eh)
