Cruise Pics!

Post by driveit on Sat May 18, 2013 9:12 am

If anyone is interested or in the area Somernites Cruise is on 5/25/13 which is next Saturday. It is in Somerset Ky. I would love to get some G3GM guys together and show off our rides. I havn't actually met any of you and would love to and check your cars in person. You can check out their page at the link below. If all goes as planned me and my family will be ride'in in the Chevelle that day!

There is always a good experience at Somerset. Sure wish I could go, but my health puts a damper on it. Anyone that can make it will not regret going. JB

I hoped to get more of a response from this. Aren't there any G3 members in the area that could come down for the day?

I wish I could but that's a bit far for me. (The furthest I've ever driven my '74 was about a hour away from the house) 426 miles according to my vz navigator. Sad

I have to seatbelt pieces for the front in the center of the seat to bolt in and bolt down the back of the front seat and she is ready to roll for Saturday.

Yesterday I installed two new (re-manufactured) Cardon calipers on the front, new pads and new hoses. I also got the seatbelts for the back installed and the seat bolted in as well as the rearview mirror bracket glued back on. It was a productive evening.

Ok. Updates. Friday night before the car show I touched up some paint on the top, got another coat on the hood and painted the trunk lid. I replaced the tail panel and tail light with those that I got from Tom on here. I finished all that by around 2:00 AM and went to bed.

Saturday morning, put in the seat belts and strapped in the kids car seats. Chelsea's seat was a very tight fit and I had to scoot the passenger side of the seat a little more forward than the drivers seat. It worked though.

We went to Cumberland Falls and back to the car show. I told my wife that I would most likely be the only G3 Chevelle there, but I was wrong. There was a green 74 with a 4 inch cowl hood. The rear bumper was tucked and was a powered by a 502. There was also a slick black Monte with swivel bucket seats and a Buick. I wasn't sure of the exact years, but were all G3's. I should have some pics this weeks some time, possibly tomorrow.

I never got to talk to any of them except the Monte owner, who didn't seem to care to talk to me. I told him about the site, but he kinda wrote me off. Oh, well, his loss!

OK, finally got my pics uploaded to the computer. Here are a few from car show day.

The first two are from when we first got to the show. New coat of paint on the hood and my lovely wife and kids on the left.



Newly installed tail panel on the right side with painted deck lid to match.



Dirty engine compartment which is being cleaned and updated a bit in the next few weeks.

Thought about going with a hodrod black. Not really a straight flat black, but not gloss. More like a satin black. Still thinking about it. The tucked bumpers are already in the plans.
