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.

Kaye Duyvestyn - Australia - Tri-5 Forum

007) Kaye Duyvestyn – Australia – Tri-5 Forum
Kaye Duyvestyn sent us this pic of his ’57.  He writes: Our Chev was imported in 2010 and we bought it later that year.  It was in very good mechanical condition but the body was in undercoat with no windows or stainless.  These parts were wrapped and in the boot.  We removed the body from the chassis and then stripped it of paint and added new floor sections and other minor parts.  The chassis was stripped, cleaned and painted as were the engine and trans.  The car was then moved to a body shop for finishing and painting.  From there it went to a relative who is a mechanic who completely rewired the car as well as fitting Vintage Air and a Dakota Digital VHX dash.  It then came back home for the interior and windows and trim to be fitted.  The project took us 3 and a half years to complete.  We drive it regularly and also tow a classic caravan to events.
Thanks for sharing, Kaye!  She came out really, really nice.
