The Car

The Big Missus is a gorgeous, original 1940 Chevrolet. The Master Deluxe model.

The car was bought in 1954 by Jimmy’s grandfather, Walt, during his senior year of high school. In June of 1956, after two years at a Junior College in CO, Walt and a friend drove the 40 Chevy to Alaska in 7 days. Now, in May of 2011, we three are excited to take the same trip, 55 years later. We’ve been consistently tweaking the car, rebuilding various components, and replacing worn parts–and after 71 years, there are a few of those! As we near the end of the semester, we are all getting very excited for the trip that lay ahead!
