Thank you, thumper.

Looks almost factory stock outside, with an updated driveline ..... while

still maintaining the six cylinder flavor of the '50's.

Looks great, reminds me of when my Dad brought home a brand new 51 Chevy. I was young then, but still remember. It was his first automatic. It served our family well, until we got a 57 2 door hard top, 283,pp, 220 hp. That was a whole new ball game, even my Mom's driving got somewhat more aggressive. That became my DD until I got the Corsa.

John,

A gent who lived next door to my grandmother bought a new '51 Chevy, back in the day.

I remember the car being gray, I was 9 years old at the time.

I really liked the car, the neighbor would allow me to help him jack the car up, with its bumper jack.

I learned how to remove the fender skirts, as well .....

From that time on, I have always liked the '51's.smiling smiley

Very nice car sir! I love that generation of GMs. My dad's first car was a 50 Chevy. From there he had a progression of similar models that continue to this day.

It's good that you have two 51s so you don't have to change your name.
