RealRides of WNY- 1955 Nomad

It’s not often that you come across a 1955 Chevy Bel Air Nomad at a church parking lot cruise night. Seems like most of them are at bigger car shows, where trophies are handed out and car owners spend much of their time polishing the chrome. So it was interesting to come across today’s RealRide at a cruise night at St. John the Baptist Church in Alden. This is one Nomad which looks like it actually gets driven. Like a real car! Lol… Admittedly I was only three years old when these first Nomads debuted, and the sporty two-door wagon lasted only three model years, but I can’t honestly say I ever saw one back in the day when these were “just cars.” Makes me wonder if they were all sold in fair-weather states, or did people around here just buy them and park them in the garage for decades?
