With the Drive In Movie Night event coming up soon, let's Throwback this week to 2007 when we had the event at the Brazos Drive In, here a line of Tri Five Chevys are waiting to get into the drive in in Granbury.

Does it get any cooler than this? Cruisin down the highway in a big block blown '55 Bel Air? For Throwback Thursday we have this shot of Sonny Poteet from the 2006 Lone Star Classic Chevy Convention hosted by DACC. We do it again in 2018 on May 24- 27!!!

Throwback Thursday finds us at the 1977 Dallas Autorama, the first event that the DACC participated in. This display was featured in a earlier Throwback but let's expand on this just a little. DACC has had a club display at this show every year since 1977 - an AMAZING accomplishment! This first ever display had 9 Tri Five Chevys that found Darrell McKenzies' '55 and Ellen Wallace's '57 on the front row. The remainder of the lineup starting with Ellen's '57 and behind it we had Dan Gardner's '56 Bel Air Hardtop, then David Graves' '55 Bel Air Hardtop and rounding out that row was Mike Cook's '55 Convertible. The other row had Darrell's '55 up front followed by Greg Easley's '55 Bel Air Hardtop, Ray Trevathan's '57 Convertible, Rick Smith's '55 flamed Bel Air Hardtop and Albert Collier's Purple street gasser style '55 Bel Air Hardtop. 41 years later the DACC will have another 8 '55-'57 Chevys to display at the 2018 Autorama!

With the Lone Star '36' '55-'57 Chevy Nationals event coming up in May hosted by DACC, let's take a trip back to 2011 when we last hosted this event and created the world's best Tri Five Chevy drive in movie and showed 'American Graffiti' on the big screen with star Candy Clark in the house to watch! In 2018 we will be showing the classic road movie 'Two Lane Blacktop' at Lone Star on Memorial Day weekend in Irving!

It's been a while since we had a Throwback Thursday photo! This takes us back to 1983 and club member Bennie Kirtley behind the wheel of his '57 Bel Air under the lights at Texas Raceway in Kennedale for one of the club's drag racing events!

This weeks Throwback Thursday finds us in 1985 and the DACC hosted one of several Classic Chevy National Conventions that year, this one over the July 4th weekend in Dallas and we had a super turnout from all over the country! We had some locals do well in the Show N Shine competition and here is club member Joe Williamson of Garland who took a Silver Award and 2nd Place in the 1957 Modified Class!

We Throwback this Thursday to 1982 and the Ardmore Classic Chevy Run that was held each September in Oklahoma. Here is club member Earnest Lander putting the shine on his '57 Chevy. Earnest was our club President for several years during 80's and is still a member today!

Throwback Thursday this week features club member Mike Tatum on the road coming back from a club event in his beautiful '55 Sedan Delivery sometime in 1981, those subtle ghost flames against the white were a nice touch!
