G'day Autophiles, Grease Monkeys and Gear Heads!
Along with the Corvette series, my favourite cars have always been the 55-56-57 (Tri-Five) Chevy series. From the base 150, to the 210, Bel Air, Nomad, 2-door or 4-door, even cut down to “El Camino”. Classic styling, lots of chrome, lots of options, box-stock, mild or wild they are just super-cool!
I have been keeping an eye out at swap meets and BSS sites for kits of any and all of these options with a view to putting together a Tri-Five build collection. So far in the stash I have the 55 Sedan, 55 Convertible, 55 Nomad, 56 Nomad, and a 57 Nomad with an El Camino Conversion commenced. I will document my progress here with any purchases, OOB reviews and full builds.
As always, all feedback, advice and constructive criticism are most welcome, and I fully expect the usual hot air from the Mopar and Ford crowds. Bring it on!
I also welcome contributions of 1:1 images as well as completed or in-progress kit builds from others. This is not a formal Group Build, and there is definitely no time frame, just a long-term project that I’m ready to commence.
