Default February ’15 Feature of the Month: Dave Smiths 67 Chevelle “Couples Therapy”

You know how you’re at a car show, and you’re walking down the aisles and a car just grabs you? That pretty much describes my first view of Dave’s beautiful 67 Chevelle. I had just arrived at Sema last year, and my buddies and I are making our way straight to Hot Rod Alley like we always do. As we wound our way through the cars in front of the buildings a bright red car caught the corner of my eye, sitting right in front of the Car Crazy booth. I immediately changed directions and headed over there. I’m looking it over mumbling “wow” and “cool” like a little kid on Christmas morning. My buddy Brent told me this car belonged to a local friend of his, who also happened to be a member of Lateral-G, Dave Smith (NOPANTS68)

Beautiful car! It was a family affair for sure. Dave along with his brother, Dad and friends all threw in a helping hand to make this happen. Here is a picture of the motor compartment completed I took at SEMA!
