    LOOOVE 57 Buick grilles in 57 Chevys. That cashmere blue, white topped 55 is freaking perfect. So tasty.

    I like your car, triple b! It is indicative of a mild custom in the late 50s early 60s. Not every one had a 2 door. Tri-5s have always had a premium attached and some had to settle for a 4 door!

    Thanks dude :) We bought it when we had our son so a four door made sense for carrying the little man around. That's why we called it Passenger 57 as it was brought to carry an extra passenger :)

    Quaker - That '55 HT is the one with the Darth Vader approved interior IIRC.

  27. chevy.jpg I bought this as a running project in Boerne, TX in 2005. It didn't run well with a tired 350 so I put in a 327-300 with a TH350. Now it goes right along the highway. Just another money pit.
