My favorite car on this site, by far! If you're in a challenge, you can count on 5 points from this guy.

If I could give it 10 trophies I would.

1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS (umterps84)

Photo of a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS (umterps84)


I've always wanted a 70 SS Chevelle convertible. My wife Theresa knew exactly which car I wanted to buy ever since we started dating back in 1980. 5 years ago I got the itch for either a Harley or a Chevelle. Couldn't figure out how to get a Chevelle into the garage so I settled on a new Harley. Fast forward 2 years, I still wanted a Chevelle. So I broke down found this one in AZ and had it shipped to Chicago. A year later I sold the Harley so I wouldn't have to park my regular car in the snow. Now I am just a car guy.
