My dad loved Chrysler K cars. I may get a 300C one day, but I will never get a K car.
My dad has always been into tri-five Chevrolet's, Corvettes, and Chevrolet's. drag racing in general.

Luxury cars never have been his thing. But , his dad sure loved Cadillacs.
when my dad turned 16 (1961) Grandpa gave him his 55 Chevrolet Delray. And went and bought a new Cadillac. & New 1961 283 Corvette engine. ( Kid , blew the 265... Doing burnout. ) In the first week:21: oh yeah: blew #1 cyl in new 283 shortly after in car.
That's when he had to get a job, and fix his car himself.
He had ,mechanic teach ,how to fix it. & Well, dad has continued mechanicing...
59 yrs now.


my dad is one of the original Street outlaws.. he was hanging out in the Cook Brothers garage when he was 12, and used to go to drag races with them ..
at age 14 in 1959.

I know my life as a kid every night 7 nights a week throughout the 60s;
Dad was out street racing every night.
Even Now @ 75 yr old:
He says , Bring it on !



Now I have my Dad driving a Caddy . :grin:
He will be driving the SRX as a daily :
He still has 55 Chevy's, Corvettes, & other Chevy's & various gassers(Willys).

As for me: I'm into the SRX for monthly road trips.
