Jeff V 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 2dr Sport Coupe

First 1968 and last 1968

My wife and I married in 1968 and our first car together was a 1968 chevelle 4 speed car we bought brand new. It cost $2975.00 , a lot back then, After 48 years of marriage we have owned many classic cars and street rods, we have always loved the sport and go crusing whenever we can. Early last year we decided we needed to buy another car and after thinking about it we decided since we were retired to buy our last car. We needed a good driver and something dependable so we could cruse anywhere we wanted. Guess what !!!! Our last car was to be another 1968 chevelle. After a month of hunting nationwide we found a chevelle in New York that had had a frame off restoration. We live in Florida, so we loaded the SUV and headed north. Just south of Niagra Falls we found our last car. A 1968 Chevelle SS 396. 4 speed all numbers matching car, PERFECT !!!!!!! We rented a trailer and towed it back to Florida. A few upgrades and we got a great crusher that turns lots of heads. We love telling the story about getting married in 1968 and were both 68 years old and our first car was a 1968 chevelle. The next thing on our busker list is crusin down Route 66 in our first and last classic car !!!!!!!' Oh yeah, forgot to say this 1968 cost over 10 times as much as our first one.........Ha Ha......."it is well worth it and brings back lots of memories every time we drive it.
