Motorheads of Shelbyville - prepare to droolPosted Thursday, March 13, 2008, at 12:43 PM
Larry Fisette had no idea whether he was buying King Tut's tomb or Al Capone's vault when he agreed to buy 21 trailers said to be full of Corvettes and Chevrolet muscle cars and parts. Luckily, all of the rumors he had heard whispered around his northeast Wisconsin home turned out to be more true than he ever dreamed.
Kinda makes your engine light come on just thinking about it, huh?
"I hadn't seen inside any of the trailers. I did it all on Donny's reputation," Fisette said. "The first trailer I opened had two [1970 Chevelle] LS-6s in it," he said. "It was absolutely total amazement." The Chevelles were parked bumper-to-bumper in the trailer, and the first he gazed upon was a gold four-speed, bench-seat car that Fisette soon realized was the LS-6 Chevelle his neighbor bought new. Fisette even remembers the day the neighbor brought it home from the dealership and showed it to him. Regardless of his memory of the car, Fisette prefers the Chevelle parked in front of the gold, four-speed car: a blue Chevelle with bucket seats and an automatic transmission, which he considers more driveable.
I want that Chevelle!
