Featured Car

Today’s featured car is a 1957 Chevrolet Nomad V8. This car has a lot of meaning to me personally, because, well, it was my car! More than that though I restored this car with a very close friend of mine Paul Edwards. Paul and I are huge Tri 5 fans and he actually used to make brand new wiring harnesses for these babies. Probably shouldn’t be calling this car a baby though this thing was a beast! The total restoration took 2500 man-hours about twice of a mustang or Camaro restoration. These cars are big and bad! Paul and I went through just about every inch on this car and when she rolled out of the shop, she was reborn! For the story on how we got our hands on this beast and more check out the video below! Enjoy!

Our Nomad restoration stirred up quite the buzz! We even made it into the newspaper! Check out the article they wrote on her!
