My 1966 Chevy II

Years ago I owned a really nice street driven 1966 Chevy II with a hot 327, manually shifted powerglide, and 12 bolt rear with 4.88 gears.  I had it tubbed and added a six point roll bar.  When AMT released the 1966 Nova Street Machine kit, tried to replicate my car.

Here I am the day I won my first bracket race at the local track.  Happily, a friend had a photographer taking pictures of all the cars that day.

To this day, I am sorry I sold that car to go faster.

Ron, I think people like to replicate cars they own (or owned) in plastic.  Thanks for your interest.
