Chad took the car for the better part of the day and drove around 30 miles in both neighborhoods, and up to 50-60 mph on the highway. The engine with a couple pumps starts up very well. It runs quietly, and I believe its working and operating the way it typically should. The only noticeable difference is the choke and fast idle set up does not seem to be operating the way it possibly could, and a little adjustment could be helpful. Car has a little bit of a throaty sound to it with the mufflers, which makes it fun to drive. The transmission is a two speed automatic, and ups shifts and down shifts the way I remember them to be like in the day. The transmission does not up shift till approximately 35 mph which is a little different from modern day transmissions, but preformed well. Upon braking the car stopped smoothly, and with little effort (being that it has four wheel drum brakes, and a non power brake cylinder). The car did not pull to the left or right and stopped very straight, sometimes you could feel just very slightest amount of pulsation being extremely critical. Steering was very precise, I believe the smaller wheel tends to give you a little bit quicker feel of the steering. The car is really easy and comfortable to drive. We believed it to be a low mileage car as it felt tight and solid and squeak free. It has a nice sound to it, perfect for cruises and shows. During my test drive I did not make it through a stop light without someone looking over, and complementing on what a cool car it was. I also had a few younger kids come and ask what kind of car it was. It just has that wide look that makes people grin, and ask if they don't no. The car just has a lot of wow and curiosity to it.

AutoAncestry leads new owner to the shops that restored his show-quality car
In 1958, I turned 16 and got my first car, a ’50 Chevy convertible my two older sisters had abandoned.
In the early 1970s, when I was 5 years old, my grandmother bought a ’71 Chevrolet Chevelle.
With Spring upon us I can’t help but daydream of road trips – those perfect moments when you don’t have a care in the world, the windows are down, and your favorite song is on the radio.
What fascinates me about the Chevrolet Bel Ai is not only how it became an iconic classic car but an American icon over the last 60-or-so years since it debuted as an everyday family car.
A couple of years ago I was attending the Turkey Rod Run in Daytona Beach.
What do you do if you have a beautiful, low-mileage ’55 Chevy with a crapped-out engine that wasn’t supplying enough power anyway?
