The Credit Card Car
It was back at the 1993 Good-Guys November Show, that Joanie Serafino purchased her 1970 Chevelle Malibu Convertible. I had no idea that I would be buying one!"
She looked through the Car Corral at all of the cars that were for
sale. Joanie always had a place in her heart for Chevelles, since she
used to drive her boyfriendís 1966 SS Chevelle at the old Fremont Drag
She looked through the Car Corral at all of the cars that were for sale. Joanie always had a place in her heart for Chevelles, since she used to drive her boyfriendís 1966 SS Chevelle at the old Fremont Drag Strip.
It came down to 2 Chevelles. One was a 1965 SS Convertible, and the other was the 1970 Malibu Convertible. The guy with the í65 would not budge with his price, and the car needed a lot more work than the other one. The guy who owned the í70 Chevelle came down about $700, from his asking price......
So, Joanie got a cash advance from her credit card, and bought the car.

joined the Nor-Cal ChevelleCaminos" Joanie told us.

Joanie said that was a great idea, especially since SHE bought the Chevelle in the first place, Joanie is Club Member number 32 of the Nor-Cal ChevelleCaminos Car Club.
|4 years ago, Joanie started
the restoration of her Chevelle. Joanie said "The reason it
took so long, was that we were also in the middle of a house
restoration. We were so busy with that, that we were not as active with
the Club, as much as we wanted to be, especially without our car. But we
have her back now, and we are looking forward to all of the activities
that we will enjoy with the Car Club."
Joanie is always up for big challenges. She purchased a turn of the century house also in need of restoration and moved it to it's current location near Fremont, Ca.. Like may old things, It too was worth saving.
