Bernie's Favorite: Bernie's Old School Pick

May 4, 2010

If I'm gonna go Old School, I'm gonna really go Old School. If I had my choice of any Old School vehicle, I'm going to go with a 1955 Pontiac Star Chief Convertible.

(I know the people in the background look familiar)

The Star Chief has been in production from 1954-1966, but between '54 and '57, it's was Pontiac's prestigious model.

The limited specs of the Star Chief goes as follows, V-8 Engine with 180 horsepower with the top speed being 90 mph.

Now of all vehicles, why a Pontiac Star Chief. Some hardcore Dukes of Hazzard fans went out and purchased a 1969 Charger and named it "General Lee", or maybe purchased a newer one and renamed it "General Lee 2.0". The real reason why I want one because in 1955, the Pontiac Star Chief was the vehicle that was used when Ricky, Lucy, Fred, and Ethel drove across country in on "I Love Lucy", in which "I Love Lucy" is my all time favorite show.

Of course, if I were to get mine, I would get it restored, but keep it's old school quality to it. No 22-inch rims, no Strut Grille, no 15 inch subwoofers and three amps. Keep the thick whitewalls and the 13 inch wheels. The most I would do is add a CD player or a aux jack for an iPod. Picturing me rolling down the street in a 1955 Pontiac Star Chief Convertible blasting Jadakiss. Now that's how I would roll. **Insert Jadakiss laugh here**
