Bob Pavlik 1955 Chevy – USA
This week we are featuring a 1955 2-Door Sedan owned by Bob Pavlik (His video interview from 2015 follows). This car is a real beauty and the pics do not do it justice. Thanks for taking the time to share with us Bob. We really appreciate it.
If you are heading towards Famoso Raceway the last week of April and are going to be passing through the Orange County, CA area during your drive make sure you bring your Tri-Five by Danchuk in Santa Ana.
Why? You ask. Well. We will be offering promotions and discounts to everyone* who drives their Tri-Five Chevy by Danchuk whilst en route to Bakersfield for the weekend of May 1-2. And if you can’t stop by on your way to Bakersfield then stop by on your way back. We will be offering those passing through the OC on their way back home the same deals until May 5th. Heck..you could even come by on your way to AND on your way back. We would love to see you. (You could get a photo of your Tri-Five up on the Danchuk lawn too, and Christine Danchuk might even do a video with you about your car for us to feature on our Facebook Page and YouTube…who knows).
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available. We promise that this will be worth checking back for.
*Drive In, Walk In customers only. Must drive your Tri-Five to Danchuk to take advantage of this offer.
James Wright was the first person to email us pics and we chose his picture as the cover of our Christmas Flyer. His photo just screams “It’s a Tri-Five Christmas”, doesn’t it???

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
On July 26, 2019 Jeff Lutz sent us this photo of “The 57”. The 57 was wrecked while doing some testing for the upcoming season of Street Outlaws, and Jeff needed to have The 57 rebuilt in 10 days! Danchuk went into action immediately to do everything possible to facilitate the project.
The first hurdle was to get a quarter panel and rocker panel shipped nearly 2,500 miles east from California to Pennsylvania. Danchuk got the body parts and a bunch of beautiful, high quality Made in the USA parts on their way while Jeff’s crew began the teardown of The 57. Continue reading

Cruisin for a Cure is an Orange County Tradition for car guys and gals in the Southern California area. Held for the past 20 years at the Orange County Fairgrounds it is the worlds largest one day charity show attracting over 3500 cars as well as 200 vendors and exhibitors…all in the name of finding a cure for prostate cancer.
For the past several years Mike Martin and his wife Sharon have set up and represented Danchuk at this fantastic event and 2019 was no different. They were out there bright and early in the morning mist ready to greet Danchuk Customers and fans alike. They gave away show only discount coupons and basically shook hands and mingled with the Tri-Five Community members that came out for the event.

YOU CANNOT GET B15938 VIA OUR WEBSITE. CALL 800-260-6254 TO ORDER
Since it is the time of the year we make our Seconds available to our customers we wanted to show you these too. But this is a little different situation so we felt that more information was going to be necessary so we make sure everyone knows what the problems are with this part and why it is a Second. Also, as these are no longer being produced the ones we have with this defect are the only ones left in the world. As such, we cannot replace these Seconds with a First Run part if you are not happy because there are no more available.
The main reason these were deemed Seconds are pointed out in the photos. It is an issue with the tool used to stamp these and it effects the bottom of the bumper at the curves where the front curves into the sides of the car. The company making these has decided not to try and fix or replace the tool. So there will be no more unless someone else decides to make them. We took the photos of the problem areas and tried to point them out so there were no surprises. We also took video so you could see how they looked from the front and all over.
We have a limited quantity of these Seconds with the same defect in each at the bottom of the curves in the corners. Plating and such is pretty darn nice and the rest of the Bumper is very Continue reading
The Danchuk Seconds Sale Is Almost Gone Until 2020
EXTREMELY LIMITED QUANTITIES STILL AVAILABLE
We make many parts and unfortunately some of them do not meet our specifications for a First Run Danchuk Part. So, we have Seconds. When we have our sale each September we only advertise the parts we have in abundance so we don’t disappoint too many people. On October 16 we updated the Seconds list with what we still have available from the first batch and all the items we only have one or two of. But Hurry. We won’t update the list again until 2020.

As the days get shorter and the evenings become cooler there are not too many more months left to enjoy our toys. Soon, most of us will have to put them away until the warmer temperatures return.
To help you make sure your car comes out of hibernation in the best condition it can we put together a quick checklist of things you should probably be doing when that time comes. Read On.
- The first is a no brainer. You want to find a safe, secure and dry spot to store your car. Excess moisture can really take a toll when left unchecked for months.
- Wash your car. And be sure to clean top and underneath. Road debris and grime needs to be cleaned away so it does not create problems.
- Wax the car. Besides being a lot of fun, waxing will help maintain the shine and will protect and preserve the color of your paint during the winter months.
- Clean the upholstery. Get all those loose fries and pieces of paper the kids, Continue reading

We won’t be able include all your submissions, of course, but if you have a nice Christmas themed photo or two of your Tri-Five that you would like to share with the world, please submit them by September 30th, 2019 by using the Contact Form below.
Photos that are chosen to be included in the catalog will receive a special Christmas Gift from Danchuk.

Maybe include a wee Christmas Tree), we will have a contest during the Christmas sale for the most popular photo submission which will be voted on and ultimately chosen by our customers and their friends. If you submit the most popular photo you will win a $500.00 Danchuk Gift Credit. 1st runner up will win Continue reading
