The car now has 35,000 miles on it and in the summer of '95 carried me 1300 miles in 3 days on a round trip to Portland, Maine, probably the longest run of its life. The engine is the original 350 Rocket 2-barrel with a Jetaway automatic transmission, although I'm planning to convert it to an original 4-barrel in the near future and possibly do some mild hop-up work as well. The car is used as a semi-daily driver although that's not really a fair description since it only gets used a couple of times a week at most. It's a fun car to drive, reliable and strong, and brings out the little boy in the owner, a 1956-model Leo, still single, born and raised in Halifax and who works for the Province of Nova Scotia. The car is a cousin to the other toy in the owner's life, a 1964 Buick Skylark convertible, also restored and used only on sunny days.
