Eddie Jones of Detroit cruises in his 1955 Chevrolet Belair on Woodward Avenue in Royal Oak on Aug. 15, 2012. “I always wanted a 55′ but I couldn’t afford it. I was a poor boy in Alambama. Then I got up here and worked all those years at GM and I told my wife … I’m going to buy me a car now, and she let me get it. I had to get her a mink coat though, but it was worth it.”
