Great Car! — Great Cruiser from the '50's. Runs as good as it looks, and is a ball to drive. I am not afraid to drive it anywhere as it is extremely reliable. I built this car from 3 cars that were disposed of.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Has a 1965 Corvette engine and 4-Speed manual transmission. Runs VERY STRONG and sounds great. Rides and handles like a new one!

Cons: None

Can't Go Wrong With A 50's Icon — V8 engine with over 250 HP, including ramjet fuel injection. Build quality is high, makes you feel like a millions bucks. The looks are superb, makes modern cars look bland. It's really fun to drive... it's just a beauty, I love it!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Styling, Performance, Value, Quality, History and etc.

Cons: You'll die in a crash..

1957 Chevy Bel Air — A gorgeous car. As a wise man once told me no matter what car you drive it wishes it was a 1957 Chevy. This car is my Dad's and it is no normal 57 instead of the original 6 cyl it has a performance built 454 from a 1970 Chevelle SS. It has 500+ horsepower and it's performance is amazing in a straight line but i wouldnt want to take it into a corner. The interior is amazing and the outside is even better but the gas mileage is enough to kill OPEC.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Power, styling, heritage.

Cons: Gas mileage.
