The Car: 69 Chevelle SS

The Owner: Anne Patane

The Story: The car has had a complete body-off restoration and features Hotchkis suspension and a 383 stroker engine.

“It’s a blast from the past that we never tire of, from cruising to Show and Shines,” Patane says. “And of course I have to mention the electric cutouts; they’re a real head-turner. I call her his girlfriend, because she has more jewelry than I do!”
