I wanted a 55 chevy since I was 17 yrs old. I remember almost getting one in high school, it was all beefed up, 4 speed, lots of power and my dad was in the back seat as the owner was slamming the gears, showing it off to me. I looked back at my dad and he was shaking his head, he said no way, you will be dead in no time.

Well, now at 53 years old, oh yeah I was born in 1955, I have my own.
I took my down to bare metal and did a frame off restoration. The only thing is I hot rodded mine, lowered it 2 inches all the way around, shaved door handles, 4 speed, power brakes, power steering, tilt steering and upgraded to the painless wiring harness.
I did all the work except the top coat and interior.

I have had lots of fun with it over the last few years. My son has already stated it wants it passed down to him. My plans are now to build a 1955 truck and slam it to the ground, maybe same paint scheme of black and metalic silver.
