My son walked in to the office the other day with an old Chevy part in his hand and asked, "Dad, how much is this worth?" I looked at the part and then back at my son and said with a smile "Don't know, guess you're gonna have to sell it to find out!" I'm actually quite amazed at the direction the entire hobby has gone.

How a Closed Club Spawned One of the Largest Classic Chevrolet Car Clubs in the U.S.

It was 1971 – I'd finally finished college and I was excited to get started in life. The Vietnam war was not over yet and I anticipated getting drafted since I'd already received one draft notice. I had really grown to love cars while I was in college where I bought a 1940 Ford 2-door Deluxe Sedan that I developed into a little street rod. It was powered by a small block Chevy. Next, I had a ‘67 mustang in which I suped up a 289 and added ported and polished heads. My partner and close friend Doug Moorhead was really into the Chevrolet scene and we'd actually picked up a ‘57 Chevy along the freeway and dropped a 409 cu. in engine into it. It was our first real undertaking and it taught us a lot. We just liked old cars - they were fun and we began to watch what was happening in the hobby. We attended car shows, hit the drag strips and just did what a lot of guys our age were doing. We had never considered turning our hobby into a business. What brought about the change were two events that I'll never forget.
