Hello All. Just joined so I can keep up with Tri-5 goings-on. Don't own one but did own a '57 Bel Air 2Dr Hdtp a very long time ago (mid 60's).

Always had a love and appreciation for these cars as did my Dad them when I was youngster. He owned a solid black '55 2Dr 150 Sedan he literally bought from a little old lady that seldom drove it. Had the 265 V8 and 3 on the tree. That car floated down the neighborhood in Hurrican Betsy. A friend of mine bought it and we made a drag car out of it.

Another '55 2Dr Hdtp red and white that he decided should be black instead so he had a friend of his repaint it and botched the paint job. I thought my Dad (who was an ex pro boxer) was gonna kill him. He redid it but it was never that great.

Another Solid Black '57 2Dr Hdtp Powerpack/Auto/Red and Black interior and then the car he gave me after I graduated from High School. '57 White with Red/Black interior 283 Powepack/Auto. Of course I had to hot rod it and drag race it. Converted it to 3-speed, had engine redone with 12:1 compression. Sold that car (that became a rustbucket due to salt air in Honolulu, Hi) to buy a new 66 SS Chevelle.

Anyway, hope I did'nt bore ya'all. I'm looking forward to reading the forum.
