About chev57’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I've had a 57 Chevy 2 DrHp, White & Colonial Creme (Yellow) since 1962 (5 different cars). Worked at General Tire & Rubber Co. from 1964 to 1996 making Vette body parts. Consulted with Meridian Automotive from 2002 - 2006 working at Bowling Green Covette in startup of both C-5 & C-6 Corvettes and also XLR Cadiallac's. Owned several neat cars; 51 & 54 Mercs, 47, 50, 55 Fords, 57 Pontiac & Chevys, 70, 74 Pontiac Rally sports, 77 TA, 85 TA, 85 & 70 Corvettes and these are just to name a few. My neatest street rod was in the late 1960's while in the Air Force stationed in Southern Calif. I had a 34 Ford 5-window coupe with 301 Chevy. I lived the real American Graffii in Riverside, San Bernadino and New Port Beach cruzin., Surfer girls, Beach boys, Sonny & Cher, ...I was there! Help start the first James Dean car shows in both Fairmount & Gas City.
Recently over the last two years I've restored a 70 VW Convertible and am currently working on another 57 Chevy Hardtop (the one you see pictured). My daily driver now is a 99 Vette Convertible.
