    '57s get a bad rap a lot of times around here for what ever reasons. I personally love them and have since i was a small child. There are posts like this for Mercs, Shoeboxes, '32s, etc. I am curious to see how many people on here have Sevens, post your pic to be in the club. I'll start with a pic of mine, still have lots of work to do, but i love the 'ol gal.:cool:

    nice rides guys. I guess im out of the game for doing the fuelie post, since mines a HT. Hardtop fulies just arent as cool, but i'm going late 50's/early 60's mild kustom anyway. Actually mine was an orginal 60's rod, but got off track a little in the 70's and 80's, im working on bringing her back to the right time period. :D

    I have always had a soft spot for 57's. My parents had a 57 2 door wagon yellow and white 6 cylinder with 3 on a tree. Here is mine.

  21. I've owned mine since 1975 (high school) and it has had many different looks. This is how it's been since 2001.

    The 4 door hardtop was my mother's car, which I drove some when I was in high school. The 2 door hardtop belongs to a friend (Wes Curtis), which is something of a clone of the car that he drove when he was in high school.

    This is my low low buck version of Scott Sullivans black 57 I call it Rust-ollivan as this car sits I have less then two grand in it.Let's just say I got real real lucky. It is one rusty 57 210 that someone took a lot of effort to cover it up and and make it a 20 footer chrome hvac tape and bondo what a waste of time and effort.
