My Dad had a '57 Olds w/ J2 engine (3 deuces) and 'Jetaway' trans--drove it during the week and raced it on the weekends--he went down to PC (Panama City) in about '63, got drunk and sunk it---pulled out couple of days later and got running again. March of '66, the car had a bad case of 'body rust' and he gave it to me--friend and I 'swapped' drive train over to a good 4 door body and that was my FIRST Tri-Five----Black and White 4door but I couldn't get out of the driveway good without APD pulling me over---within about three months I already had enough citations to loose my license and had to get rid of the 'Olds and get my '57 Bel Air--------

What a collection I'd have if I still had these. My '56 Chevy chassis is in the garage right now waiting for me to paint it so I can start putting the pieces back on it. Then I can start on the body work.
