This photo of a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Convertible is exactly like Nick Sharpe’s (the web designer) first car in high school, ’71. Bought for $300 while working as a pump jockey in South West Miami (now known as ‘Kendall’), this big block, drop top taxi cab was an auto shop course unto itself. Rev it up to 5,000 RPM and watch the parts fly.
Boys will be boys!
So it was a pleasant surprise to stumble across this image while surfing the web. It is almost exactly like the actual car, red on red with white top and Rallyes, 396 with chrome valve covers and air cleaner (factory, I’m told). Talk about poppin’ wheelies down memory lane!
This image and text is a placeholder while building out Phil Nathan’s online garage full of classic and collectible cars that he will share with hobbyists and collectors over the internet and maybe even sell, if you want.
Keep an eye peeled in the next couple weeks when construction is complete for the grand opening of PhilsClassicCars.com
