WHEN I WAS A KID A FELLOW OWNED A 1968 CHEVELLE 396/375HP. HE
WORKED AT A LOCAL GAS STATION AT 5 POINTS IN LEVITTOWN PA. I WOULD
SIT ON A CURB OUTSIDE MY SECTION WHERE I GREW UP. I WAS 13 YEARS
OLD AT THE TIME. HE WOULD COME OUT OF THE GAS STATION ONTO
WOODBORNE ROAD AND HE WOULD RIP DOWN THE HWY GRABBING ALL 4 GEARS.
I WOULD NEVER FORGET THE SOUND OF THAT CAR. I WOULD ALWAYS LISTEN
CAREFULLY TO SEE IF HE WOULD MISS 3RD GEAR. AS I GREW UP IN THE
BUSINESS TRYING TO SAVE UP MONEY TO OWN A CAR JUST LIKE IT. IT TOOK
ME OVER 10 YEARS TO FIND THE CHEVELLE WITH THE ORIGINAL DRIVETRAIN
BECAUSE BACK IN THE DAY THE PEOPLE THAT GREW UP IN THIS ERA KNEW
THAT 396/375 WITH THE SOLID LIFT CAMSHAFT REV FAST AND IT WAS NOT
UNCOMMON TO MISS A GEAR AND HURT A MOTOR. THIS IS THE FIRST CAR
THAT GOT ME COLLECTING THESE VERY RARE CARS OF THAT ERA. I BOUGHT
THIS CAR OUTSIDE OF FLINT MICHIGAN FROM AN OLDER GENTLEMAN THAT
WORKED FOR GM AT THE TIME.
