The Dark and Dangerous Tale – - – 57 Chevy Street Rod prowls the Night its four occupants searching the streets for a run. Some months back I published a pix goes by the monicker of Bad 55 Chevy Rat Rod. In that scenario its five occupants were rumored to be a part of the Rockabilly Crowd. And they were up to no good. They were cruising the streets around the water-works. Their bad 55 bow tie rumored to run in the low thirteens was said to blast on a mixture of pump gas and Four Roses ~:0)

This time ’round I’m sharing their arch-nemesis with the Hot Rodney Hot Rods Crowd. This 57 Chevy Street Rod prowls the long lanes surrounding the old refinery. Her crew always looking for a street run is hard and mean. The rustle of empties is often heard about the feet of her passengers. Though the driver is said to have never tasted the Fourecks. I don’t know if that’s true, but I do know this. He’s known to pilot his rig into the high twelves when the atmosphere is just right. And tonight the air is cool as the steely look in his eyes. Even his toadies sense that this could be the night of which street legends are made ~:0)

Will the dark street-racing duo of the 57 Chevy Street Rod that prowls the Night meet up with the Bad 55? Whose turf will it be? The Water-Works? The Old Forgotten Refinery? Or will they drag down the length of Main Street and up onto the steps of the Court House? With this mob there are no rules. Pandas – Constables – Bizzies – Blue Healers – Coppers – Barneys – County Mounties – the Bronze or 5-0 – Can they catch or even see these outlaw Chevies and their decadent crew burning up the bitumen on a Saturday Night in Their Town? I for one simply won’t speculate. I’ve got to see the run with me own eyes. I gotta to be there or be square the night the Dark Knight of the 57 Chevy Street Rod goes up against the Bad 55 Chevy Rat Rod from the other side of town. – – – Ha!

U gotta get a print of each of these rods for ur walls! The 57 Chevy Street Rod and the Bad 55 Chevy Rat Rod the night two giants raced for pinks. – This is the stuff of legends. And we could all use a bit of legend these days ~:0) VivaChas!

    Dangerous! Those old Chevy’s are always out to proove something. I’ll just slip down the ally and pretend I didn’t see him.

  • Isn’t that the truth – think I’ll do some Fords for a change of pace – always best to avoid trouble with that crowd ~:0) VivaChas!
