    Sam, that pic of your ride on wires is one of the best.. you really need to roll that way. but I understand the hubcap look also.. its amazing how the era/ look changes so much from such a basic swap

    Happy, thanks for posting those pic. really enjoyed seeing the 57 done in that fashion

    These are old Cal Custom's.. They were actually on the car when i bought it 20 year's ago, so i thought it fitting that this time around i'd 'restore' em and put them back on..
    I like these because they are a little different, plus they clear the roller rockers and lock with no problem's.. I'm not sure the Vette one's will but i've never tried a set.

    Here is my contribution....a very cool '57 owned by Dave Jenkins here in Michigan. I met him at the Ididit car show in October. This car flat knocked my socks off...it is absolutely a perfect representation of a 60's custom...with good reason.

    Dave bought this car brand new in 1956, and it was a dual quad 4-speed factory piece in black. In 1961 he took it to the Alexander Brothers in Detroit for a makeover. The car left the shop as it appears today. The car was restored a couple of years ago, but everything appears as it did in 1961.

    Not many guys can say they have owned the same car for 50 years, and Dave is a great guy. I borrowed the pics from Hotrodhotline, thanks Fuzzy.

    Sorry to go O/T but why are these referred to as "Tri 5's"? Is it because this chassis and body was only in 55, 56, and 57? Is it as simple as that? I've always wondered.

    That is sweet and very convincing. There are some nice 4 door sedans showing up on this thread too. The most solid Tri-five I ever had was a '55 4 door from Colorado. It was a blue and white Bel Air with a 265/4bbl and a stick overdrive. Paid $175 for it in 1968. I have to start digging for some old pictures of my '56 Bel Air 2 door hardtop custom I sold to buy a new 1967 442.

    Here's ours. Pretty rusty, but it's fun to drive :) 350 and a muncie 4-speed. We had it sitting out behind the shop for 17 years. Built it for less than $2000.
