Hi to all... growing up in the 50s and 60s, naturally there were always Chev owners in our suburban neighborhood of North Baltimore, way too many to count, really. My own Dad had '51, '53 and '56 6 cyl sedans, but inexplicably switched to F- and P word wagons and sedans, probably because the ol '56 Stovebolt burned oil almost right from the start!

In mid 1967 the neighbor across the street traded his fading blue'59 Biscayne for a shiny new gold '67 6 cyl/stick Biscayne, and that same year I learned to drive on our high school's Driver's Ed new dark turquoise '67 283/auto Bel Air, on loan from Marsden Chevrolet, which I remember as being incredibly nice to drive solid, quiet, and smooth in comparison to Dad's new but not particularly refined '67 Fury III 4 dr hardtop. In late '68 my eventual Mom-in-Law (whose daughter I started going out with 12 months later later, and whom I dearly loved like my own Mom while she was alive) bought her first new car ever, a new '68 307 Caprice Sport Sedan 4 dr hardtop at the end of the model year, in a lovely pale yellow, with black vinyl top & beautiful black brocade interior that seemed like those in a real luxury car. So these late '60s big Chevys have always been among my most favorite cars of all time, as I feel that in'65 to '69 or '70 GM's cars were at their peak. Growing up always with full-size cars - Dad worked for a steel company and the big ones used lots of steel! - I've always loved those big boats best, just ordinary family models, not necessarily the SS and coupe models, as cool as they are. So I've been looking for a very original more or less turn key '67 or '68 4 door full size Chev, all models, and several are on the radar. Luckily some are out there and they're not as pricey as the really sought after models! I've posted a ? about frame rust in another section.Love finding this site!

I frequent at least 7-8 web groups and every one but this allows posting pics directly from a computer desktop. I'm not about to start paying for the ability to do so. Car sites should NOT be a profit making business IMO, but you'd think all the banner ads would be sufficient! YMMV as they say.
