The Car History of Alex Beloff III

MY LOVE FOR THE 1958 PONTIAC STARTED IN ROSSFORD OHIO IN FRONT OF THE HIGH SCHOOL ON DIXIE HIGHWAY WHEN DICK HAROLD FROM PERRYSBURG WOULD STYLE THROUGH IN HIS RED GLASS 1958 CHIEFTON CONVERTIBLE WITH A WHITE SPEAR, CORRECT WHITE WALLS, WITH 1959 SPINNER WHEEL COVERS AND MELLOW EXHAUSTS.  AT THE RED LIGHT, WE WOULD ALL HOLLOW OUT, HEY DICK, LET’S HEAR IT.  NAIL IT.  THAT BIG CARTER AFB 4-BBL PONTIAC V-8 WITH A SUPER HYDROMATIC WOULD CREATE THAT INCREDIBLE NON-RESTRICTED AIR BREATHER HOWL SUCKING SOUND THROUGH LOUD PIPES AND LAYING TWO BLACK MARKS WAS LIKE A SEXUAL EXPERIENCE.  HE WOULD IMMEDIATELY LET OFF THE GAS AS TO NOT GET A TICKET FOR ACCELERATION EXHIBITION.

EVERY SUNDAY DICK WOULD BE PARKED AT THE CITY SERVICE STATION NEXT TO MERLIN NAWROCKI’S 1958 BISCAYNE TWO DOOR POST 348 TRI POWER STICK AND DAVE MARTIN’S WHITE 1957 BELLAIRE COUPE AND THEY WOULD POLISH THEIR CARS.  WE COULD STOP BY AND TALK CARS AND ADMIRE DICK HAROLD’S LATEST TROPHY FROM THE OLD EXPRESS AIRPORT WHERE HE HAD AGAIN WON HIS CLASS.  WHAT A MEMORABLE TIME OF CARS AND MUSIC.

THIS 1958 STAR CHIEF WITH A FAR MORE IMPRESSIVE BONNEVILLE DASH, STAR FLECK CARPETS AND UPGRADED INTERIOR WAS AN EXHILARATING EXPERIENCE BEHIND THE WHEEL AND I CHOOSE TO THINK WITH THE FACTORY DUAL EXHAUSTS IT WAS ALMOST AS FAST A DICK HAROLD’S 1958 CONVERTIBLE.  IT WOULD EASILY SPIN THE TIRES AND LAY BLACK MARKS.  A VERY IMPRESSIVE CAR TRADE IN AT ROBSON PONTIAC CADILLAC.

IT WAS COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT I PAY MORE MONEY THAN ANYONE FOR A SPECIAL INTEREST CAR LIKE THIS, SO IT WAS A BIG HELP TO THE DEALER TRYING TO COMPLETE A TOUGH TRADE IN NEGOTIATION WITH THE CUSTOMER.  WHOLESALERS RARELY WILL COME ANYWHERE NEAR WHAT I AM WILLING TO PAY ESPECIALLY FOR A VEHICLE OF THAT AGE, SO EVERYONE WAS HAPPY.

I NEVER CURBED A CAR IN MY CAREER (I WASN’T STEALING THE DEALERSHIPS CUSTOMERS TO SELL MY CAR) WHICH IS ONE OF THE REASONS THE DEALERS WERE SO HAPPY WITH ME.  I GENERATED MY OWN OWNER BASE.
