I graduated Mid 2010 and started my career as an engineer (during the recession). I wanted to play a running classic car, but I only had a minimal budget for it. I found the cheapest runner, a 1964 Comet 404 with a 289. My desires far exceeded my small wallet, my small collection of tools and the tiny apartment building without a garage, so unfortunately I had to sell the car for parts. For the next decade, I looked for another one seemingly daily. Although it was not originally my dream car, the missed opportunity at the Comet contributed to this. In 2022, after months of struggling to get it imported from Canada (originally an Arizona car), I finally have the Comet I’ve wanted for the last 12 years – but it’s a K-code Caliente convertible.

This is 1957 The Chevrolet 210 was purchased new in San Diego for $2,165 by family friends. I bought from them when I joined the Air Force in 1959. It only had 10,000 miles on it then and I still own it today. As far as I know, this is the only 1957 Chevy that has been to Japan (twice) and Okinawa, and spent many years in Hawaii.
