    I don't care if they're cliche' or not, I still dig 'em, and always have...got my first one, a '57 210 2-door sedan, when I was 12 years old...bought my second one, a 60,000 original mileage, Bel Air 2-door hardtop with a 283 Powerpack & Powerglide, built at the Oakland, Ca. plant, when I was 14 years old, and still own it after 42 years!

    I currently have seven '57's : three 2-dr sedans, three 2-dr hardtops, and a 150 2-dr wagon, and a '55 210 2-dr sedan...I've probably owned 30-40 Tri-Fives over the years...

    My older brother had a '55 in the early '70's. Gallons of bondo and a one foot square hole for the stick shift. I was 13-14......I loved it.....MARK

    That is absolutely astounding. So little goes such a long way, especially like the white wheel wells. Love seeing the return of those subtle simple-to-do touches that really help to give a fresh look.

    I always thought the Buick grille made a cool swap in those '57s.
     
  4. I'm a 56 fan but I really like what he did to this 57!
     
  5. Cool story.....and I like the black and white shots more. The '57 Chevy was probably the first old car I liked as as a kid.....just awesome!
