The Chevrolet Nomad station wagon was produced intermittently between 1955 and 1972, but the most coveted by collectors is the two door versions produced during the Chevy "Tri-Five" (1955-56-57) years. The 265 engine was scraped for 1957; replaced by the 283 and, offered only for the one year, a very rarely chosen option for the new engine was the "Super Turbo Fire V8". This variation develops 283 hp (211 kW) by adding continuous fuel injection and was dubbed the "fuelie" by Chev fans. The sales of the Nomad Sport Wagon were down in '57 and the full size platform is completely reinvented from the frame on up in '58, so the Nomad wagon was shelved, at least for the next few years.

Pontiac Star Chief 1955
The award winning '34 Ford Panther coupe displayed here is a unique show piece and the perfect gift for the MCF that has everything else, provided that money is no object. This super cat is powered by 3 three Chevy 350 engines, backed up by a Turbo 400 transmission. No expense was spared with a "Bridge of Weirs" red leather interior, 16 coats of Imron paint, custom frame, custom fiberglass body, four wheel independent suspension, disc brakes all around, with rack and pinion steering. The 24 exhaust pipes, one for each cylinder exit the engine compartment through the fenders to the underside and, in a simply designed manner, exit the rear as twin pipes
