The very first car Ron had as a teenager was a Star Chief, and he searched for many years to find another one. With the new invention of the Internet, Ron finally found one in California. So, Ron and his buddy, Dick Caddenhead, drove to California with a trailer and brought the car back Dec. 10, 2002.
For the next few months, the two guys worked on rebuilding the engine, new weather stripping, interior paint, overhauling the speedometer (it is a rolling red line) and more. This car is Ron’s love and is always a work in progress.
We have had many good and wonderful times over the years with our baby, and it is especially nice because we have only seen a few other Star Chiefs in car shows and in the car magazines.
