We bought the Chevy in the early summer of 2006. A pretty decent car, although poorly mounted after a restoration by its previous owners (not those we bought it from). But yet, that season we drove about 1800 miles in that shape. During the winter 2006-07, we overlooked the whole car and renovated the brakes and put new wheels on, "American Racing TT2" with "Cooper LL 235/70-R15" tires. Don't want big wheels.

During summer 2007 we drove about 2500 miles to different car shows/meetings, more or less all over Sweden. Pretty much nothing unexpected happened. During the winter 2007-08 the car is getting a complete restoration of the front. Engine rooms, inner fenders, bushing sets in the control arms, a new body mount set are some of what's being done. Look at the pictures.
