Tom Pate can't leave the family farm behind fast enough. Drag racing his candy-apple-red 1955 Chevy Bel Air is just the first step in a journey that will lead him far from home in his search for a bigger track, a better ride, and a better, faster future. Tom's younger brother Zack tries desperately to keep up with this man whose talent involves leaving people behind. Set in the 1960s—with racial tensions running high and Vietnam War starting to make demands on the lives of young men—On the 7th Day God Created the Chevrolet is a story that pits the safe haven of farm and family against a young man's best shot at glory.
