Ron and Ce Ce Corrente have a 1957 Pontiac Star Chief.
The very first car Ron had as a teenager was a Star Chief and he had been searching for many, many years to find another one. With the invention of the Internet, Ron finally found a red and white four-door hard top Star Chief in California. So, Ron and his buddy, Dick Caddenhead, drove to California with a trailer and brought the car back Dec. 10, 2002 — MERRY CHRISTMAS!
For the next few months, the two guys worked on rebuilding the 347 stock engine along with new weather stripping, interior paint, overhauling the speedometer (it is a rolling red line) and they replaced all of the glass and many, many other small repairs . This car was going to remain stock, but over time the improvements kicked it out of that category. This car is Ron’s love and as everyone knows, the car is always a work in progress with these senior babies and the latest was to re-chrome some of the large front bumper. And so it goes ...
We have had many, many good and wonderful times over the years with our baby and it is especially nice because we have seen very few Star Chiefs in all of the car shows we have been to.
