Rick’s History with the Blackbird

I have been a fan of 1941 Chevrolet’s most of my adult life. I’ve only owned four of them, but one of them twice. The brother of a friend had a 1941 Chev 2 door sedan. All there was, was a body and frame, w/front suspension. Unfortunately he died in an accident and I was able to purchase my dream car. My aspirations were much higher than my finances and get up and go. At a later date, Craig Adelhart obtained the car from me. He built the car and it turned out great. He drove it for several years and was involved in a major accident with it, but it wasn’t his fault. He fought with the insurance company and won. They had to rebuild the car. I had the opportunity to go with Craig to the Nostalgia Drag Races in Fremont, California. I never forgot how that car rode and handled. I was in love with that car. A few years later when Craig wanted to sell it. We weren’t in a position to buy it without financing it and we had to pass on buying it. That hurt, but it was the right thing to do. A fellow in Beaverton bought it, so I got to see it once in a while. When we got to position where we could afford it, I couldn’t locate it. Since Dale Mathews had sold it, I inquired with him about it. Dale said the same people still owned, but had moved to Seattle. Gone forever, bummer. I snooped on the internet occasionally, but always came up with nothing. One morning while snooping on eBay, there’s what sure looked like Craig’s old 41. I studied the pictures as best I could, then called Craig and asked him to get Karen and get on eBay. She was gone, so I was able to instruct him, via telephone , on how to get on eBay and find it. He did, looked at the pictures and said that if it wasn’t his old car, it was great clone. I immediately called and set up an appointment to see it later that afternoon. It was a few miles out of Beavercreek. Craig came from Gresham and I came from the Beaverton area. We were early and the seller was late. We talked for about an hour and Craig was sure that it was his old car, but seller didn’t think so. After about 45 minutes of bantering back and forth, Craig said, I have special question for you that will verify whether it was my old car or not. Do you have to use a Mopar key to open the trunk?. The Gentleman, said yes, how do you know that. Craig told him the story, and that’s another story in itself. He took us out back, where the car was in his barn. He opened the door and I was in awe. We looked the car over, then asked him what the price was. He told us and I said that I’d be a fool if I didn’t make a counter offer. I did and he said it had minimum, which was fair, so I stuck my hand out for a confirming hand shake. When I reached for my checkbook, he said no deposit is necessary, just come back tomorrow with a cashier’s check. Craig picked me up at my house and took me out to get it. This is, without a doubt, one of the best cars that I have ever owned. A lot of upgrades had been made after Craig sold it, but the basic car was the same, just cosmetic and drivetrain changes. I have since added a few Rick changes/upgrades. This car was built more than 30 years ago and it rides and handles like it did, when it was built. That’s a testament to the builder. Thanks Craig!


Rick Polier bought this 1947 Chevrolet 5 Window Pick Up at the PDX Swap Meet several years ago. Both he & Craig Adelhart I were both looking at buying it. He’s glad that he didn’t buy it and sometimes, Rick wish that he had. One of the main reason that Rick bought it was that the Chevrolet SSR is designed off of it, and since they own an SSR it gave them one of each era.

Linda Bear's Bluebird 1931 Ford Model A Pickup

Rick admits that Model A pickups were built for horizontally & vertical challenged people and, since he is neither, he can’t drive it. In fact he can barely get in passengers seat. Pretty sure his wife Linda knew it would fit her perfectly and when they were looking at it, Rick told her she could buy it if she wanted... she said "Too late, I already did!"

When Rick bought this 1941 Chevrolet 2DR Sedan Rat Rod, it was to make a clone of the 1941 Chevrolet that his friend Craig Adelhart built as he could afford it when Craig sold it. Unfortunately upon receiving this 41, he discovered that it couldn’t be made into a clone without major work & expense, so a descent Rat Rod it is. By the way, 20+ years later, Rick is happy to announce that as of 2020 he does finally own Craig's old 1941 Chevrolet!

Rick & Linda Polier have been RCSR members since 2011. Another auto and bought new, is this 1972 Chevrolet 1/2 ton short wide pickup which is actually a hot rod. It's been lowered and had custom wheels since it was new. Several years ago a newer computer controlled Camaro IROC engine and transmission where installed.
