This is my 1955 Chevy Bel Air. It has the original 265 V8, Powerglide; it also sports front disc brakes and Pertronix upgrades.

Here it is on the set here as the Carmine Galante's (played by Gino Cafarelli) car in the recent film, 'Mobtown', in NY's Catskills region.

Not a great movie, but I think my car deserves an 'Oscar'!

The Chevy performed flawlessly, never flubbing a line, and was treated well by the staff.

A lot of waiting around'... They paid $250 per day, with catered meals.

I was suited up to serve as an 'extra' in background scenes, and I am seen here standing left of actor David Arquette.

It was an interesting and fun experience to see what goes on behind the scenes.

Consider registering your old car with a company, and perhaps try this out.
