Fifty 567 Club -
Danchuk helped to support this car show in Canada which was held July 11-14, 2019.  You could almost say it is a Mini Tri-Five Nationals.  Have a look at the pics that they sent from the show.

If you didn’t go this year, own or love Tri-Fives and are in the area…you should probably put it on your calendar for next year.  You can get more info on the show by following this link….

Customer Email Cars w/ Info – Updated 7/09/19
We are always getting pics of cars sent to us with little bits of info about them.   We wanted to start featuring them in our emails and on our Blog and Social Media, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  (If the pic came from one of the members of Tri-Five and ChevyTalk forums, per our requests, your affiliation is noted iin your write-up).  The cars are numbered and posted here in the order that we are using them in our emails for easy reference.  (It should also keep us from duplicating cars).  If you send us your pic be sure to tell us a little about your ride so we can tell everyone. Our thanks to everyone who has or will send pics…we can’t wait to show them off.  And don’t forget to tell us about your build. Continue reading

From Lawn Art to Red Sled – Upgrading An Older Restoration

Before. The car as it was done in 2006. Body off, acid dipped, Morrison GT55 chassis, Edelbrock crate motor, custom interior, painted Torch Red, American Racing Wheels…and on and on…nice car.

After. The car after the update and frame off for 2019.

Back in 2006 Danchuk conducted an experiment.  We always said if you had a body you could build an entire car out of our catalog so we decided to put that to the test by building a 57 Resto-Mod for the 50th anniversary of the 1957 Chevy.  The car came out really nice and it was built with items readily available in the Danchuk catalog.  It has been displayed on the front lawn of our building in Santa Ana, California ever since.  Super Chevy even dubbed it “Lawn Art” in an article they did on the car back in 2008.  (You can see everything about that build by clicking HERE).

Now you would think that a clean up of a 12 year old frame off restoration, acid dip down to metal..Morrison Chassis, nothing old, that was used as Lawn Art would go off without a hitch. Well, read on.  It was anything but…. Continue reading

Danchuk Customer Car Photo Shoot – May 14, 2019

Danchuk – 57 2-Door Hardtop

For 2019 (and beyond) we are expanding our show schedule and we wanted to do a cool backdrop for our display booth that featured a solid red ’55, solid white ’56 and solid blue ’57…to signify that Danchuk is Made in the USA.  Our Art Director, Natalie, also had some ad ideas that would require solid black cars, one of each year. Unfortunately Continue reading
