From Chris Sondles, President of the American Tri-Five Association

Friends, it is with great sadness that the 6th Annual Danchuk Tri-Five Nationals is being postponed until 2021 due to the ongoing concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.  This decision was based on guidance from city, county and state officials concerning the health and well being of each of our participants, spectators, vendors, staff and sponsors as well as the residents of Bowling Green, Kentucky.  While this may not be a popular decision, it is the right decision.

The Danchuk Tri-Five Nationals has become the largest gathering of 1955-1957 Continue reading

Danchuk 2021 Tri-Five Calendar Preview

Mels Head Photo
Last year we came out with the first Danchuk produced Tri-Five Calendar in probably 12 years and it was such a success we decided that we needed to do one every year from here on out. (We used to partner with Super Chevy Magazine…but they are gone now).
This month we did a couple of photo shoots in and around LA and Orange County and we thought maybe you would like to see a preview of what is to come. Now these are shots done “Behind the Scenes” during the shoots but you can see some of the cars etc. We are really excited!

2nd Annual Kiwanis Land Car Show – Garden Grove, California – September 20, 2020


Danchuk is proud to lend our support for the second time to the Annual Kiwanis Land Car Show. The show was held on September 20. 2020, from 9am to 2pm at Kiwanis Land Park in Garden Grove, California.  It is a really great show with all proceeds going to support Kiwanisland and the Teens they sponsor.  Our very own Mike Knibb attended the show, walking through and meeting all the Tri-Five Chevy owners.
