The Car History of Alex Beloff III

CRUISING DOWN SOME WELL TRAVELED RURAL ROADS TO A ROTARY DISTRICT CONFERENCE FUNCTION IN FOSTORIA, OHIO AND LIMA OHIO, I SAW A 1958 STAR CHIEF FOUR DOOR HARDTOP IN THE FRONT YARD OF A RURAL SETTING HOME:  FOR SALE – NO BRAKES. 

I WHIPPED IN THE DRIVE AND SAID, DOES IT RUN?  HE SAID, LIKE A TOP IT JUST DOESN’T STOP.  THE ONLY THING THAT WILL STOP IT IS THE EMERGENCY BRAKE WHICH IS IN POOR OPERATION.

I SAID, WHAT DO YOU WANT FOR IT?  I SAID, YOUR FIGURE IS A FAIR ONE, BUT IT IS TOO NICE A CAR NOT TO DO A COMPLETE BRAKE JOB INCLUDING MASTER CYLINDER, BRAKE LINES, NEW CORRECT WHITE WALL TIRES AND A NICE DETAILING.  BY THEN I’LL HAVE A CONCERNING AMOUNT OF MONEY IN YOUR CAR IF THERE ARE NO OTHER SURPRISES.

I SAID, THIS IS ALL THE CASH I HAVE ON ME.  HE SAID, I JUST DON’T THINK I CAN TAKE THAT FOR IT.  HIS WIFE SAID, OH YES YOU CAN.  I AM SICK OF THAT THING OUT IN THE FRONT YARD AND A WEEK BEFORE CHRISTMAS, TAKE THE MAN’S MONEY.  I SENT A WRECKER FOR THE CAR AND COMPLETELY GAVE IT THE BELOFF TREATMENT.   THE CAR SOLD QUICKLY.  I HAD NO COMPETITION.  WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO FIND ONE?
