  • Hey Steinkamp, didn't you own this?

    '55 Champ on the local craigslist. Aside from being a 6 with auto, looks to be a car well worth the money.

    Beautiful Car....terrible carpet, but otherwise pretty.
    I think I had that carpet out in front of my motorhome...Was that color stock?

      Yes!

      I bought that car from Peterson. It is a 6 automatic, but with the low gear start and the BIG 185 6, it actually had acceptable performance. It was a nice car cosmetically too. I thought it looked better with the wide whites...



      It didn't have the ugly green carpet in it when I owned it. If the correct color green carpet couldn't have been found, black would have been a far better choice.

                +4 on the WWW. It looks a little more, what is the right word here....demure {?} with the BW tire. It pops more with the WWW

                I sure did not mean to sound mean about the carpet....maybe I come off that way at times, definately not what I am trying to do, I just like honest feelings, and my feelings are that car is gorgeous, -the carpet. Yes black would have been a better choice at that point, phew, glad I am not the only person who questioned the carpet.
