RIDING ON CLOUD 8
Duane Miller Jr.’s ’58 Chevy Bel Air
Having to sell your ’64 Impala to score on a ’58 doesn’t pose much of a problem. In fact, it’s pretty much a no-brainer and a deal that most of us would go for. But when it comes to finally owning one, the haunting question is whether or not you’ll be cutting it to install some hydros—at which point there are two camps: those who will and those who won’t.
Yet like most of us who belong to the latter camp, we’ll suffer with the idea of cutting such a precious car. We begin to think about the rarity of the car, what others will think about the resale value, but after weeks and sometimes months of contemplation, most of us will finally give in and do the deed, and this is exactly the case for Duane Miller and his superclean ’58.
A longtime fan of classic Chevrolets, the time had come to finally own one of his own. After much debate, he sided with passion over profit and decided that hydraulics were life and he cut it. Call him wrong, we’ll call him right, because at the end of the day life is about fulfilling the promises you made to yourself and if you never have plans on reselling it then why worry about profit.
