Vehicle Description

1957 HANDYMAN STREET ROD

THE TRI 5'S HAVE BEEN A HUGE PART OF MY LIFE ... THEY HAVE FORMED AND SHAPED MY LIFE , MY TASTES , AND CERTAINLY MY DESTINY...... THAT MAY SOUND A LITTLE OVERBLOWN TO SOME OF YOU ..... BUT LET ME EXPLAIN .... I WAS A POOR KID , MY SISTER SAYS WE LIVED IN ABJECT POVERTY BUT THE TRUTH IS I NEVER KNEW IT ...SOME KIDS HAD MORE TOYS THAN I DID AND LATER ON THOSE SAME KIDS GREW UP AND HAD COOLER CARS THAN I DID........ I HAD TO BUILD OR FIX MINE , IN AND OUT OF THE LOCAL JUNK YARDS .....THEY GOT THEM BECAUSE THEY GOT GOOD GRADES OR HAD NO CAVITIES THE LAST TIME THEY WERE AT THE DENTIST...... ( BIG SHOUT OUT TO KELLER'S JUNKYARD AND OLD MAN KELLER WHO INFLUENCED ME ALMOST MORE THAN THE TRI FIVES) FOR ME THE KIDS THAT DESERVED ALL THE RESPECT AND GOT ALL OF MY ADMIRATION WERE THE HOT RODDERS THAT BUILT THEIR OWN ... THE COOLEST OF THE COOL WERE RUNNING IN SOME BAD ASS 55 , 56 , & 57 CHEVY'S .....KEN FRANKLIN DROVE AN ABSOLUTELY PERFECT '57' BLACK ON BLACK HARDTOP BELAIR , HE WAS IN A BAND...(DRUMMER NO LESS).AND HE AND HIS DAD BUILT THAT CAR TOGETHER....... THIS WAS IN 1966.... NOW THAT WAS COOL ... THIS KID COULD HAVE BEEN THE FONZ....... I WOULD BET THAT THERE ARE MILLIONS OF FOLKS IN THEIR SIXTIES THAT FEEL EXACTLY LIKE I DO ... WHEN I SEE THE TRI FIVES BEING DRIVEN , OR RESTORED , OR HOT RODDED IN SOMEONE'S GARAGE IT WARMS THE COCKLES OF MY HEART ....... THIS "57 HANDYMAN" IS UNBELIEVABLE BOTH IN BUILD AND QUALITY , IT IS EQUIPPED WITH VINTAGE A/C , POWER STEERING , AND IS THE THE PERFECT MELD OF NEW SCHOOL AND OLD ....I LOVE THIS CAR IT MAKES ME WISH I HAD A WAGON IN HIGH SCHOOL.....THIS CAR HAS 549 MILES ON THE CAR SINCE THE COMPLETE RESTORATION AND LOOKS BETTER TODAY THAN THE FIRST DAY THAT IT ROLLED OFF THE SHOWROOM FLOOR!!!! WANNA PLAY AT THE SHOWS ...THIS CAR GATHERS A CROWD "EVERYWHERE" PRICED VERY COMPETITIVELY......................................................
