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

1957 Chevy w/ ’58 Experimental Fuel Injection – One of a Kind

1957 Fuelie - 7D_00

This 1957 Chevy is one of a kind and up for auction on July 25, 2020.  Click the link to the auction in the story below…the link will expire when the auction is over.   

In our travels thru the world wide web we came across what we thought was a car that might be of interest to our customers and readers of the Danchuk Blog.  This is a 1957 Chevy with a bit of history…undocumented history yes…but history just the same.

It seems this particular 1957 Chevy was born with a 4-barrel carburetor which was replaced with an experimental 1958 Chevy Fuel Injection Unit…..if what the current owners, the Beneventi Family of Iowa, say is true.  And we think that it probably is.  Read what the auction house, VanDerBrink Auctions, LLC has written on the auction site…

Side by Side Comparison of 16811 and 10023.

We recently received a number of returns on part # 16811 1956 Lower Grille Mouldings because of a series of “pinches” in the ends of the part as a result of the manufacturing process. As it is made this way it is not defective with these flaws so we will not be responsible for shipping or return shipping if the item is returned.

We wanted our customers to see exactly what we are talking about so we took some photos of the # 16811 and our Made in the USA # 10023 to help you make an informed decision as to which part you want for your project.  In comparison the stainless part, Continue reading
