LS engined 376 ci 725bhp 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle

Those were the words photographer John Jackson humorously blurted out while at GoodFellows Classic Cars in Phoenix to shoot this gorgeous yet brawny ’66 Chevelle. It wasn’t because there was an underage girl behind the wheel, but due to the front license plate that reads JAIL B8. The story of the plate goes back to when Tina’s husband, AJ Schwichtenberg, owner of GoodFellows, had a ’62 bubbletop with that California plate. As AJ tells it, “I wanted to get that same plate for the Chevelle I was building for my wife, Tina, but the Arizona DMV wasn’t having it.” AJ kept the original and put it on the front of the Chevelle, which got Jackson’s attention as Tina was moving the car in position for the photo shoot.

1966 Hillman ‘Audax’ Minx 1725 Automatic

Bold probably isn’t the first word that comes to mind when you see a Hillman Minx, but this month’s road test is a Minx in the Audax series, produced from 1956-1967. Audax translates from Latin as ‘bold’ and Rootes Group had bold plans for their new platform.
