1951 Chevrolet convertible©antiquecarnut

We all look back and ask ourselves why did I do this or why didn’t I do this!! In this case, my queston to me is why didn’t I buy a Chevrolet convertible in 1951 when I was a dashing Air Force Lieutenant and had the chips to do it? All my buddies were buying new cars and I always wanted a new Chevy convertible, so why didn’t I cut loose and get one? I’ll tell you why!! It would have cost me roughly 25 percent more than a Styline 2 door model!! Believe it or not, I do have a conservative side somewhere in my brain!! As proof, I opted for a Styline 2 door that was solid gray!! I look at this beautiful red convertible and ask myself, what was I thinking? I’m looking at all the chrome on this car and don’t believe the owner missed any options.
