My Classic Car: My High School Drive Lives On

Credit: Original article published by Classic Cars Journal.

I purchased my 1965 Chevelle Malibu Super Sport June 2, 1969, just shortly after I graduated from high school.

This was a daily driver of mine until 1978 when I parked the car in the shed. After many years of sitting there, the rust took over the weak spots that Chevrolet had when they built the car.

Just a few years ago we took out the motor and transmission and refurbished it ourselves. For the bodywork I took to a body shop, and they did a complete frame-off restoration. When it was finally ready for me in July 2019 I was able to take it for my 50th class reunion. Since then, my Chevelle and I have gone to many shows, and I’ve driven it at a variety of events for fun.
