Another Polaroid about 1978 just after it's first paint job and with the new one piece 'glas front end my buddy made for me. Sneaking around on the streets with no headlights and M&H slicks



Last rebuild and repaint around 2002, made a new short box, 8 point cage and a tube straight axle.

So is that a different 55 than the one that became the Chevole'?

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

I'd like to have an earlier shot. The store used to be a hotel and the building on the right was a fire hall.

Unusual for February... but it could be three feet deep two days later.

Wow Doc., we have some similarities. My Grandparents had a store too. It was only twelve miles south of 'the end of the steel', [railroad]. The railroad moved on in the mid twenties and that was a few years before Grandad built the store and started making a village. He had 'homesteaded' right along a trade trail that the Indians used, so Grandad started trading furs and selling groceries and everything else. Here's a picture of the store that my sister painted and here's Grandad Watts.
