Ride in 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air
This is my 59 Bel Air. I am the second owner, and have owned the car since
March 1978. I paid $75.00 for it, with 58,000 miles at that time. It is
still mostly original, other than it has been repainted, by me, in 1984.
Dashboard still has the factory original paint and gauges. Everything on
the car works great.
Options are, clock, deluxe heater, two speed electric wipers, AM
radio,Tissue Dispenser, parking brake alarm...blinking red light in very
beginning of video... EZI glass...tinted, rocker moldings, vent shades and
license plate pocket guard...gas filler is behind license plate.
The engine is a 348 cid 250 hp turbo
Thrust V-8, that has never been overhauled. It has a 4-Jet Rochester carb.
The power steering is driven off the rear of the generator...yes it has a
DC generator....not a AC alternator with diodes to change the AC to DC
current. Power brakes are Boosted by
factory Bendix Booster. Trans is a 3
speed manual and axle ratio is 3.36 to1.
Driving it from Michigan to Georgia it got 18 mpg and used no oil.
1958 Chevrolet Bel Air Restoration Video 1
This is the intro video for my most recent project, a 1958 Chevy Bel-Air 4
door hardtop. In the video I describe how I got it, and the plans for the
car. Keep checking back for updates!
Old Race Car First Start - 1968 Pontiac Lemans Stock Car Lives Again!
I picked up this old roundyround race car from a buddies wrecking yard. It
was cheap, my parents are pissed it's in the back yard, nothing is new.
Norm Brill was the driver, I have no idea who he is so I'm going to assume
he went out in a blaze of glory having a shootout with the cops while
drunk, naked and high on PCP, leaving his race car in the weeds lost to
It's a 1968 Pontiac Lemans, the same body as the GTO and Tempest from what
I understand. The engine is either a 400 or a 350 V8, it had air
conditioning and power steering, possibly a limited slip rear differential
but I haven't had a chance to check. The carburetor is a 2 throat unit.
It pained me to see it crushed and sent to China like the Nova stock car
that was beside it, so I saved it, and now ya'll can enjoy it! Sorry the
audio isn't better, it sounds really good in person because the mufflers
fell off but it's more than my phone's microphone can handle. The engine
sounds very tight and any smoke is likely from the nasty gas I filtered and
ran through it.
I also show the old lettering on the car, but it's only because it's neat.
I'm not a race driver and have no sponsorship from the names listed, if
they are even in business any more I'd be surprised.
It's just a cool ol' muscle car!
Edit: Man this is taking a while to upload. The bent fan and nerfed crank
pulley happened when it was moved at the wrecking yard before I got it. I
can fix the pulley, but the fan is toast. It'll be replaced before it takes
out the water pump. The radiator is junk, it's leaking and I have a large
1ton truck radiator I'll put in it's place, possibly with an electric fan,
maybe mounted in the trunk and ducted. I'd sorta like to get fenderwell
headers for it like the ratrod has. Will have to look around at the
swapmeet....man...this is slow...I like Reddit? Ya'll like reddit? It's
neat. Yup...Ooh, I should post this to carporn or something. Oh man, almost
done...go...go little bar, you can do it! Oh to heck with it, I'mna go get
Edit 2: Aw man, it went backwards...was at 100, then went to 95...god, now
I just feel like a girl writing in her diary about stupid stuff. Like, oh
my gawd becky, did you SEE the percentages on that video? I kno rite? Oh, I
know, hey you should check out huskystarcraft if you like video games,
starcraft II Wings of Liberty in particular. That Husky guy is pretty cool,
the music videos are rad. I may have a straw hat and smell like narsty
gasoline and durt but I'm a nerd at heart and I still play with cars! Oh
hey it's done I think...neat.

1959 Chevy Impala *SOLD* Thanks for looking!
This 1959 Chevy is a great car for restoration or parts. Solid frame and
front clip, good windshield and 98% of the trim is intact.. RARE for an
Impala, this car has a 6 Cylinder w/ 3 speed on the column. Great gas
mileage with plenty of get-up-and go.. Can easily be converted to a V8 with
the proper motor mounts. Clutch and brake pedals need to be reinstalled as
does the ignition switch. Headlight switch is missing and so is the radio
but the bezel is still there. This car's not perfect but being a 4 dr Chevy
impala it's prefect to make a custom job out of and you young guys will
find plenty of room under the fenders for 22's.. Currently listed on the
Charlotte NC Craigslist, this cool FinMobile can be yours for just $2900.
I'm hoping to sell this car soon as I need tires for my '58 Cadillac and
some convertible top lift cylinders for my '63 Bonneville. Money Talks! if
you show up with real cash money I'll be a lot more likely to take you
seriously than if you give me your business card and your "word" like the
last guy did.. Want to see what this car could look like finished? Here's a
