My Dream Car

If money were no issue in my life, my dream car would be a 1971 Chevelle.  I was lucky enough to find my dream car when I was 14 in a neighboring town.  I used my entire savings and my father helped me pay for it.  I then worked in a diner for three years to pay him back, but every dirty table and cranky customer was worth it.  I am luckier than most because I have the opportunity to actually own my dream car, however there are many things I would do if money were freely available to make improvements on my car.  Right now it is marina blue with white racing stripes.  I absolutely love the colors, but the paint is starting to chip at the rounded corners of the rear windows.  The interior also needs some work; the springs are poking through the driver's seat and the carpet is very faded by the sun.  There are also parts of the vinyl dash board that are starting to show wear and tear.  I would also upgrade to a 495 Chevy big block , instead of the 350 that is in it right now.  It has a brand new racing transmission that I put in several years ago, as well as a new exhaust system and redone disk brakes (I changed out the drum brakes because it made it very difficult to drive on back roads and windy corners).  The reason this is my dream car is because I have always wanted a Chevelle.  My family is strictly Chevy, and my brother got a 1976 Corvette Stingray T-top as a 16th birthday present.  I liked the stronger geographical lines of the Chevelle, the shape of the headlights, the way the quarter panels moved so slick into the door, the way the rear windows looked so edgy and familiar at the same time.  I fell in love as soon as I looked at the car I own now.  My father and I went to look at it and I was like a kid in a candy shop; it was the most amazing thing I had ever seen.  So, if money were no issue I would make major improvements to my dream car that I own, my 1971 Chevelle.
