We had a great time at the 2018 Danchuk Tri-Five Nationals. These iconic classic cars represent an important part of post World War II America. The tail fin wars were just heating up and Chevrolet’s first V8 engine grew from 265 cubic inches to 283 cubic inches. In 1957, Chevrolet’s fuel-injected 283 engine posted a milestone as the first engine to produce one horsepower per cube.
Today, Tri-Five Chevrolets are desirable in both stock and modified forms. Demand is so high that companies like Woody’s Hot Rodz offer 100% brand new, high quality chassis and bodies. The Danchuk Tri-Five Nationals were packed with thousands of classic Chevy cars and trucks from that era. The event took place at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The Danchuk Tri-Five Nationals featured a large car show, drag racing, tons of vendors, great food and a Give-A-Way contest for a 1955 Chevy custom. The car features RideTech coilover suspension along with Wilwood disc brakes, a TMI interior and other brand name parts. The winner, Phillip Reedy, registered for the contest at the event and was on hand for the big announcement. Be sure to add this very cool event to your bucket list.
