An Interview With Danchuk Customer, Greg Rummel

Father and Son 1955 Chevrolet 210 Restoration

As a surprise for his dad, Greg Rummel contacted us and asked if we would autograph a poster of he and his Dad’s project car, which they built over the years using Danchuk parts.  When he came to pick up the signed poster he agreed to sit down with Christine Danchuk and tell us a little about the 1955 Chevy project he and his father started when he was just 17.  Thanks for taking the time, Greg.  We really loved hearing your Tri-Five story.

How to tell if you have a V8 or 6-cylinder Core Support

How to tell if you have a V8 or 6-cylinder Core Support

Note:  1955-57 Chevy’s mounted their radiators in different positions, depending on which engine was installed, V8 or 6-cylinder.  The V8 radiator mounted in the V8 position, engine side of the core support, and used a V8 core support.  6-cylinder cars mounted the radiator on the grille side of the core support for clearance, since the 6-cylinder was longer than the V8, and used a 6-cylinder core support.  The handy info page to the left will explain things better.  Click the pic for a larger version.

Grand National Roadster Show 2020 Pics & Video

For the first show of 2020 we set up at the Grand National Roadster Show held January 24-26 at the Fairplex in Pomona, California.  It was a great show and we were lucky to be in our same spot as last year, Building 6, Space 108.  Mike Martin, Mike Knibb, Frank, Adrian, Wil & Daniel were out in force to greet customers, talk Tri-Fives, give away some cool 15% off show only discount coupons and distribute copies of our 2020 Danchuk Calendar (available while supplies last).  Check out the pics the guys took at the show as well as some Facebook Live Video that Mike Martin did from the floor of the various buildings.

Thanks to all those who sent pics in.

Back in October we asked our customers, via email and social media, to please send us some of their Christmas Themed photos that we could include in our Christmas Flyer.  For their trouble we promised to give away some Danchuk goodies to those who were used in the flyer and to run a contest for everyone that sent in a picture.  Some people, like James Wright (above), had photos at the ready and others made them up for the contest and they all told us about their ride, or how the photo came about etc.  Really cool.

Thank you to all 28 of our customers who took the time to respond and send us photos. Continue reading
