    I have the 1957 Chevy Gasser "The Great Pumpkin" in my shop getting restored right now. I live in Linden, Michigan. The owner is, Tim Byran from Linden, Michigan and has replaced the rear end with a GM 12 Bolt Posi. He has also replaced the engine with a 500 horse power 454 Crate engine. This car has zero rust on it and is a fun job to restore. All the suspension has been rebuilt. The owner has lowered the front end the the owner before present owner had the rear quarter panels brought back to the factory stock look. The owner wants us to paint it the original color, which is black. Jeff Soja is doing all the body work and painting with the help from his brother Ted and Dad Bob Soja. I thought, that I would give a update on the location of the 57 Chevy Gasser "The Great Pumpkin". There will be pictures posted of the processes at a later date. Today's date is, June 28th, 2014.

    ats a nice
    Is this car from the Chicago area? I remember a car identical to this as a kid. In the summer of 1968, it was parked at a Standard station on Washington Blvd. in River Forest(?) My dad drove a bus route past it and would drop me off so I take a closer look and get hot dogs fron the stand across the street. If this is the same car, It put a huge influence on me. I used to try to draw it in school. I now own my own 57 Chevy and helped a buddy build a gasser like this a few years ago. I would sure like to know what happened to this car and get more info on it. Thanks for the pick and the memories!

      Steve, My uncle used to have a 57 Chevy Named Draggin Mouth that he kept at my father gas station in Oak Park (corner of Lake and Ridgeland) around that time.  I'm still looking for that car myself.  It was the reason why I love drag racing today....

    I Robert L. Heizer, am the first cousin to the owner and driver of tnis 55 gasser of Van Leslie Heck's car! His father Les Heck and my Mother Roaslie Ann  Heck Heizer were brother and sister. I was with Van about every summer with him as we ran around his hometoen of Evansville Il. He was a wild and wonderful cousin, but grew up and was the best chevrolet mechanic I ever seened, My own brother John Thomas Heizer is right in is caliber of being the best now. Van passed awat a couple years ago in a terrible truck-car accident!   The Heck & my Heizer family misses him still. Thank you for this opportunity to say a little about Van. The car he had was still around for 30 yrs. in a garage. It was auctioned off for many thousands of dollars. The car now belongs to Larry Fries. I went to High School with him. He made a video of the car. To view it go to A period perfect 55 gasser Mr. ChevyV8TV on the internet.
