About paradise_road’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

This is my second 65 Chevelle I bought one used in 1967. I drove the hell out of it on the street and at the track. Then Uncle Sam called and I did not have anywhere to store the car while I was in the Marines, so I sold it. What a mistake!! So now when I could do it again I found this one in Michigan and started to build it the way I wanted to a long time ago with a few new ideas. I just love driving the car and wish I lived in an area where I could drive it everyday. I am jealous of people who can drive there baby when ever they want.

My first car

a 1958 Chevy 2 door Delray

The first generation of Chevelles were the best looking, and you have a very fine example. Nice photography, too!
