RE: August 2015 Feature Car


Awesome car and guy Clint ! I always like the 1970 B body, first one I ever saw was a 1970 Catalina in spring 1987 in Bagotville Quebec of all places (rusty), it was love at first sight, must be a blast to drive with manual shifter ...

I'm sorry to only chime in now Clint, I've been away but this is a great seeing your car at the top and reading the story. Great story, and as stated, great dedication.

And I love how you built the car with the big block and the stick. B body stick cars are the best!

Ok guys, I got a little silly.  When we moved to Calgary in 1971 my dad ran a Pacific 66 gas station.  Pacific Petroleums Ltd. was the Canadian arm of Phillips Petroleum in the USA.  I think Pacific 66 gas stations were only in Western Canada, and were changed to Petro-Canada stations in the early 80's, after Pacific Petroleums was bought by Petro-Canada in the late 70's.

"Corral 66 Service" was at the corner of MacLeod Trail & Willow Park Drive in Calgary, near the original "Corral Drive-In" movie theater which was at Macleod Trail & Anderson Road, hence the station was called Corral 66 Service.  My dad only ran Corral 66 for a year or so before moving on, but I have a small collection of Pacific 66 stuff.

Anyways, I thought it would be neat to enhance the car a bit, adding decals that make it kind of look like a gas station sponsored car for the local strip.  If you wonder about the "Flite Fuel", Phillips 66 & Pacific 66 had 2 blends back in the day, "Sixty-Six" was regular, and "Flite-Fuel" was premium.
