    My boyfriend's 1966 Chevelle!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     BQueen1 shared photos of her boyfriend tending to his 1966 Chevelle in Elmont, New York, in 1967. 'Back then, not everyone had a car. So if a guy did, he was considered way cool,' she said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    In 1967 if a guy had a car, the girls went out with him. You always went looking for the cute guys with the car. At least that was true in my neighborhood on LI, NY.
    And not all the guys had a car. You had to work really hard to acquire a car.
    This was my boyfriend's car, a 1966 Chevelle SS 396. It was considered a muscle car, which made it all the more interesting.
    He had a job pumping gas at a local Amaco while he was still in high school.
    I liked him for more than his car, but the car made him even better..:) That's him in #4- Wasn't he cute?
    We are still friends today..
    The photos are blurry cause that was the kind of cameras we had..
    Thank you.
