    Your taste in cars is very similar to mine, right down to the Crown Corvair. I'd love to see your stuff one day. Whereabouts are you? I'm in Edmonton for the month, but live in Summerland. Occasionally my work takes me to Calgary and area too.
    I started out as a partsman too, at Dennison Chev Olds in Richmond. Turned to striping and signs in the mid 70's.

    Spent many hours in friends 65 442.
    So I am thinking the 455 with Olds decals, bucket seats, 442 console, 442 badging.
