About Str8upChevy’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

Started in 1975 when my brother-in-law picked me up from school in his 1969 Camaro RS/Z28 with a 4spd and a 4.11 posi. That ride home changed my life and created a passion that has included 4 Chevelles, 3 Novas, 3 Corvettes, and 12 Camaros over those last 35 years!
I guess it goes without saying: "I'm A Diehard Chevy Man"!!

My first car

White 1966 Chevelle ~ Built 350/TH350, 3500 Stall Converter, 12 Bolt Posi w/4.11's, Ladder Bar Setup, Centerline Auto Drags! It was my Uncle's Steet/Strip car until he bought a Pro-Mod '66 Vette. I bought the Chevelle from him in 1982 when I was a Junior in High School.

Car I wish I still had

My Black 1967 Nova Super Sport It was restored up in Canada by a guy who spent 4 years on it and over 22K for the total rebuild. It was in showroom condition and had a high gloss finish that was as smooth as glass. I can only imagine what it would be worth today. Also, either one of the three 67 Camaros would work too!

My dream car

1967 RS/SS Pro/Street Camaro with a 572ci solid roller BBC topped with an 8-71 Blower. Tubbed w/a narrowed 9" rearend, a 4 link suspension with coil over's. Built TH400 with an 8.5" 4500 Stall Converter. The body channeled about 4" over the frame and a 12 point cage. High gloss Black with HOC Candy Tangerine Flames, purple tips and blue pin-striping. A full 4" Flowmaster Exhaust System. I'd say by the time I hit 50 I'll have it sitting in my garage. (That gives me 10 years)

Good, after all the time, money, and all the problems with your painter I'd hate to see you lose it.
Congrats on the house too! Hope you have a large garage.
