I think some cars look better in motion and others you just want to look at while they are parked. I think Dwight’s 1956 Chevy Bel Air is one I enjoyed looking at and photographing at a stand still. There are a lot of details to admire and it’s the only way you are going to get a view of that motor.
Dwight had the the following to say about cars and his 56:
“I’ve always liked cars and taken pride in keeping mine in great shape. As a young parent of three living over 50 miles from my work, I was forced to drive Honda Civics for over 30 years in order to make ends meet. Once I retired and I could afford to spend more on vehicles I purchased my 1956 Bel Air. I have always liked the tri-five Chevys, but the ’56 was my favorite. A gentleman I worked with did the frame off restoration of the car. He then sold it to another coworker who “hot rodded” it by putting a 383 Stroker engine in it and a Tremec 5 Speed manual transmission. I have done a lot of minor upgrades including a new two stage paint job, but mainly like waxing and polishing it. I’ve owned it for about 8 years and it is now part of the family. My 7 grandchildren get their pictures taken in it every year and love to go for rides saying, “Faster Papa, faster.”
