In 1968 there was only two cars that we youngsters wanted. A Camaro or a Mustang. Well in 1968 Richard Ochoa didn’t get one but his dad did. He bought it band new from Clippinger Chevrolet in Covina. It was yellow & a daily driver. It was several years before Richard & his wife Clara got it from his dad & he still didn’t get to drive it much. So in 1985 he fixed it up & let his boys drive it through high school. As happens so many times, that did not last. Seems his son got three tickets in one night. He took the car & the son’s license.  Now he got to drive it. In 2000 he rebuilt it into the beauty it is today & with its 750 carb, bored out cylinders, & headers it gets it on. Richard & Clara have been to lots of shows including Santa Anita, Del Mar, Cool Cruise, San Dimas, & several local events. Nice ride to represent Cal-Rods for August 2016 & for many more years.
