1955 Chevy Nomad
Being a life long Nomad worshipper, I have had some pretty great ones over the years. One summer day I had to go to Ware, Ma to look at a pair of 67 Nova Super Sports for sale. I was not impressed with the Nova's, but over in the corner of this building was a car covered in a tarp. I immediately recognized the silhouette of a Nomad. I asked if I could take a look, pulled off the tarp, and it was the Carpet Bagger. I had followed the Carpet Bagger at the drag strip when I was a young man. I left the Nova's and went home with the Nomad. I did a complete Pro Street restoration, updated the brakes, installed a 468 big block and glide, and a 12 point cage. When I was almost done the original owner/builder showed up and wanted to buy the Carpet Bagger back. He is still racing it today. ~Rick
