Featured Member of the Week: Brandy 57



Please tell us a little bit about yourself…

I am 63 years old and live in Troy, Ohio. I have had many muscle cars in my life, mostly back in high school days but my favorite was always the 57 Chevy.

How did you first learn about Cool Rides Online?

I first heard about Cool Rides Online during a car show I attended.

 What Cool Rides do you currently own?

I currently own a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air

Now tell us a little about your favorite “Cool Ride”; what makes it special?

My ‘57 has an all metal, electric, tilt front end that is controlled by a remote control and the hood still works as normal.

What’s next for your Cool Ride?  Planning additional work for it or maybe a special trip/cruise?

I will be upgrading the truck this winter.

P1010073What was the most difficult modification you’ve completed on any of your Cool Rides?

The tilt front end was by far the most difficult to complete. It was engineered and created over a 13 month time frame and took over 10 different iterations of pivot points etc.

What’s your favorite memory involving your Cool Ride?

My favorite memory is just sharing the story of my ride with all of the people who attend the car shows.

What is your dream car to own if money was not an issue?

My dream car would have to be the Ford GT40.

Taking care of collector vehicles is not easy.  Do you have any special tips on how to take care of your Cool Rides in and out of storage?

I never take my ride out in the rain; it is too hard to clean the entire front end that is exposed with the tilt front end. I also purchased a very good quality car cover made for the car.

Is there anything else you’d like the Cool Rides Online members to know about you?

I just really enjoy sharing my story with the car show attendees.
