New member, but a forever Chevelle lover. I've had the privilege of being in a Chevelle family for many years. My Dad had a 1965 Chevelle Convertible, 327 4 speed. That was the car I learned how to drive in. Later, my Mom got a '69 Chevelle SS 396 and it was my "daily driver" to and from high school. On graduation day, my parents gave me a 1970 Chevelle SS 396 w/ Cowl Induction, Turbo Hydromatic, 375 HP, in Black Cherry which I took to College. I sold it in '74, bought it back six months later because I never went a day without missing it. Sold it again in 1984 as a married gal and looking to build a house with my husband and start a family. Second biggest mistake of my life. I'm actively searching now for what I had. I'm in the market and hopeful to relive a little bit of my passion for the '70 Chevelle. Wish me luck and thanks for the add to the group!

Re: New Member

Thanks, everyone! I'm actively pursuing and getting info on three Chevelles right now. But, I swear, it is so difficult to get these sellers or their reps to call you in some cases! Not giving up though!

Welcome & good luck.

If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Re: New Member

She is a gift from my precious husband and came just in time for our 39th anniversary! Same SS 396, Black Cherry, same vinyl top, same interior as my first and only back in 1970! I feel like an 18 year old again, and could not be happier! She's not matching numbers, but I could not care less! I'm just floating on Cloud Nine! She has a LOT of HP - Brodix heads, headers, Edelbrock manifold, super fast, but I'm not pushing her. I'll have her dyno'd when we get her mechanically straight. She's a bit needy. A few "undisclosed" things have been found, and I will be asking a few questions. My husband Michael is great with mechanics, and owns two 1934 Ford street rods (one since 1973) so we have a leg up there. Meanwhile, we are having fun together in the garage working on this beautiful project!

If you and your husband get caught "parking" in that car, the Cops aren't as forgiving as they used to be!
