The Time I Drove A Sex-Crazed Cougar's Porsche 911 To Rodney…

Having always driven mechanically dubious trucks, muscle cars and other beaters, I'd always wanted to try something faster and more sophisticated. Lucky for me, I met a cougar who owned a Porsche, and ended up getting to tear ass around L.A. in it, stopping by a $5,000 per plate Bel Air mansion party and Rodney… » 8/28/12 2:00pm 8/28/12 2:00pm

1955 Chevrolet Bel Air is one awesome gasser

When gasser style cars started appearing at drag strips in the late 50s, they were like nothing anyone had ever seen. They were stripped down hot rods with big engines, wild paint jobs and a weird stance—thanks to the straight front axles that were installed up front to improve traction off the line. » 11/26/11 11:00am 11/26/11 11:00am

The Vintage Chevrolet Club Of America Shows Off Rain-Soaked Detroit…

When commenter of the super-stars, Startlton_Heston, offered up some photos from the Lee Johnson Chevrolet 75th Anniversary Car Show we assumed there would be a dozen or so photos to throw into a gallery. Little did we know, although we probably should have assumed, Mr. Heston was insane enough (in the best way) to… » 5/04/08 6:33pm 5/04/08 6:33pm

Bel Camino!

What happens when you combine two California icons — the tony SoCal neighborhood of Bel Air and El Camino Real (aka The King's Highway)? The Bel Camino, of course. If Chevy had introduced the ElCo in '57 instead of two years later, this is probably how it would've looked. Excepting, of course that doltish Bowtie rear… » 9/07/06 11:15pm 9/07/06 11:15pm

2006 Woodward Dream Pre-Cruise: The 1956 Chevy Bel Air Nomad


We've left one Starbucks already this morning due to an ant infestation, and as we were on our way to a non-infested coffee shop / wifi spot to resume our bloggorhea-like coverage of the hoopla leading up to the 2006 Woodward Dream Cruise, we happened upon this little gem on the corner of 13 Mile Rd and Woodward… » 8/15/06 1:46pm 8/15/06 1:46pm
