OWNER: Val Kimbrough, Edmonds
OCCUPATION: Retired
CAR'S MAKE AND MODEL: 1956 Chevrolet 150 Gasser
"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE ... I just finished a full frame-off restoration this winter. The 1960s-style nostalgic Gassers are always a favorite at local car shows and at any car hop. This particular car was built for the street. It has a blown small-block Chevy [engine] with a 700R4 tranny, full custom interior, vintage-style wheels and tires — everything new from the ground up — a Gasser at its best."
