I’ve always wanted a big block 4-speed Chevelle since I was a young kid. I would always see an awesome Chevelle go up and down Central Ave in Yonkers as a young kid.

I sold a couple of Camaros to move up to a Chevelle. One being an ’87 IROC and another being a ’69 Z-28. Both were great cars but as I said, I always loved Chevelles.

I have won many awards ( best of shows and people’s choice at local shows ), as well as best Chevy at Musclepoolosa, the Chevy invitational at GM Nationals and at the Greenwich concours d’elegance.
