Mario, now you have really done it. These three icons have always meant the world to me. I had a 56 Bel Air sedan (1977-1978), 55 210 Del Ray club coupe (1978-1981), 56 210 sedan (1981-1984) and a 57 Bel Air sport sedan hardtop (1984-2007). I know more about these cars than I know anything else in life. My dad also had a 56 150 sedan (1956-1959). These three years have been hot since the very first day they were sold. Once an icon, always an icon. My next tri five will have to be a 57 Nomad wagon, no doubt about it.

Mario, that is a real cool photo of you washing your aunt's 56 Chevy. Your aunt had good taste in classy cars.

Yes my Aunt Gladys will be 98 years young on Christmas Eve and she is also my Godmother! She lives in her own home and is quite mobile. She doesn't drive anymore but she had many cool cars.

Well here I am clapping my hands and stomping my feet for yet another well down page. I used to wash my grandmother's 57 hoping someday I'd get to drive it. I'd sit in the car practicing for that day of course with my dream girl beside me. That dream girl's name changed every few weeks. I can't recall the girls but I recall the cars. Maybe my wife is right. I do have a problem. If I could only recall her name it would help my case, maybe.

Well done Mario for providing something to look at other than our society dying a slow painful death.

The Tri Fives are an Icon in our classic car world and glad you like the page. It's a good distraction to our tumultuous world today. I'll keep on coming up with more pages to ease our pain.
