Welcome to the Car Stories Section! Every hot rod has a story and this section has several
stories and histories of cars including 50s cars, 60s and 70s vehicles.
1953 Chevy -
Dave was in the process of hotrodding a 1953 2 door Chevy Belair. Its actually a 210 Sedan, but he bought all
the body molding for a Belair because it looks way cooler!!
1953 Pontiac -
Here's pictures of Bob Hierlmeier's 53 Pontiac 2 door sedan from August 2001 Foothills Street Rod Association' s
Fun Run in Calgary Alberta Canada. Bob is from Edmonton, Alberta and with the Edmonton Street Rod Association.
1954 Chevy -
Brian Breedlove purchased his Dad's 54 Chevy Belair and inherited his love for cars. As he tells it: "My dad bought
this car in 1961 while he was in the Navy in Calif. He sold it to me just last year (bargain price).
1954 Pontiac -
I am the 3rd person who has worked on customizing this vehicle which has been best described as being a basket case.
It was for sale for over 2 years when I purchased it and had been sitting outside untouched for about 5 years.
1955 Chevy -
I owned a 55 Chev 210 4 door sedan for about 6 months in 1976. I bought it from a little old lady for $100. The 55
had a straight 6 with an oil bath air cleaner, 3 on the tree, 4 flat tires and lots of rust.
1967 Ford -
My first car was a 1967 Ford LTD that was given to me by my parents in 1975. 1965-68 Fords were dirt cheap at that time.
A friend had purchased a 65 Ford 4 door in absolutely mint condition for $500 with low mileage.
1967 Triumph TR4a -
After graduating and being in the work place for a while, I took over my friend Craig's 67 TR4A project which he found
in a farmer's field. He paid $250 for the car and $250 for a new hood.
1972 Corvette -
I owned a 1972 Corvette for about 2 years during the early 80s. It had a rebuilt 350 sbc and 4 speed and
the numbers didn't match (bad bad move on my part!). But it was incredibly fast!
