1955 Chevy four door station wagon! SUE-WEEET!
My honey and I were driving back from a Wallowa Lake camping trip a few weeks ago and saw this beauty on the side of the road - FOR SALE! I said "There's my car!" But of course, Roger didn't stop to look at it - He's a Ford-man, you know! Ce la ve!
Then last weekend we traveled to La Grade, Oregon for a car show and decided to drive back home on the same route as before. And what do you know! Driving through that same little town out in the middle of nowhere - there was the car - still FOR SALE. This time my honey stopped and we looked it over. He checked the engine, the shocks, the general condition, etc. The owner came out and we took it for a spin, it sounded great; discussed price, and ended up buying it! YEE HAA! Roger said "now this is YOUR car!" YEE HAA AGAIN!
Now we have the T-Bird, the 29 Model A, and now my 55 Chevy! I love it, and I am not going to have to do much to it either, the engine is good, we have an extra set of tires with mags, we even got the old engine - and sold it to a friend already!
Taking her home!
I know, I know; too many cars! But the T-Bird will stay in the family (Roger's father gave it to him - he was the original owner and bought it in 1956). The Model A needs an engine and more work so it will be a while before we can drive it around. But I will be driving my '55 around town, with the radio blasting! We're back in the 50's again!
Well, that's what's new here. I want to have something written on the back, but don't know what. I was thinking of "Gramma's Blue Toy" or "Gramma's Baby". Any suggestions?
Have a great week,
