Dad had a 65 but it got totalled and I got a broke jaw out of the deal when I was 5. I love the front ends. His had a 283 that he put in and a 3 speed manual foor shift conversion. Really liked that car.

I love the 64 model. Way cool. I seem to be a 64 model year kinda guy I guess.At least as far as GM goes.
My oldest brother had about 5 of them at one time. My favorite was the vette yellow 64 with the 327 4 speed in it.

I completely forgot until I read this thread; my Dad had a '59 when I was like two. It was pea green, I remember when he brought it home I climbed all throught it and cut my foot on a piece of a broken bottle behind the seat (hillbilly/ farm kids never wore shoes) . I don't know what happened to that car, and I wouldn't have known what it had under the hood.

I own a 79 SS limited edition. 350 small block, Muncie 4 speed transmission and 373 gears. I love this car but I think the 68 to 72 are one of the best looking. I like the 70 SS 396. But also a the 59 is a beautiful classic.

Hard to believe my '85 is now 27 years old. I am going to miss it. Have it on Craigslist now to make room for a winter project.

My favorite either has to be 1968 through 70 because I like the Chevelle front end or the 80's because they look great as drag cars!

Your '66 is the coolest one ever. I had a brand new '66 w/396 4 speed and loved it...still miss that car! If you ever decide to part with yours, I "might" be interested.
