Garage Shots of
Roger Whitaker's
'55 Chevy 2-Door

Hello to all
I have some shots of my '55 Chevy 2-Door Belair.  It was a 2 year project.  As you all can probably see it had been left as rusted junk, but I talked the previous owner into selling it to me.  It had been stripped and all the glass broken out, plus it had been sitting outside for 18 years.  So I had to rebuild everything.  Like most old car projects it was gonna be a driver.  But as you will see it ended up as a New Modified 1955 Chevy.  It's a mate to my '55 red truck that was in last years Ottawa Car Show.  So here we go, hope you all enjoy the pics.  Roger Whitaker
