The first car I ever owned was a 1956 Bel Air Convertible. I was 16 years old when I bought it for $600, and shortly after that I married my wife, Becky. Growing up, I had a lot of nice cars, but we still had a favorite–the ’56 convertible.

Many years later, I decided I really had to have another ’56 ragtop. I looked high and low trying to find just the right car and felt like I was getting nowhere. I finally found this Bel Air in really rough condition, but I knew it was what I wanted.
