Best Damn Car Ever — The '57 Bel Air is an automotive icon. Instantly recognizeable on any road. It runs like a bat out of hell with an original 283 but can easily be upgraded to have any larger engine. Its fun to drive and is a head turner on the road.

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

Pros: Becaue they are amazing

Cons: No reason. Get one now

Tim's '57 — 1957 Chevy Belair 2 door sedan. 1968 327 c.i. engine with AFR heads, Comp Cams retro roller Big Mutha Thumpa cam, stud girdled, hydra rev kit installed. Turbo 350 trans with 3500 stall converter. Out back, a '57 Olds rear with 4:30 geared spool. I drive it like a rental car. I've broken and smashed every part on this car since 1990. Dont like that? Too bad!

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

Pros: Looks, sounds, goes good.

Cons: Tires dont stand a chance.

The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air — Needed a total restoration. Was sitting in storage for many years and was used as parts for another 57 Chevy. But it was my first car. I learned fast. they are interesting cars. they arent as good as the 58's which i have owned one also. On the other hand they are easier to get used to because they are not as big as the 58's. Parts are plentiful and usualy easy to work on.

Pros: 50's styling, comforatble, easy to work on.

Cons: it needed alot of work and parts

57 210 4 Door! — Car didn't stop turn or accelerate. It had body roll like a royal navy ship of the line and had no creature comforts not even a padded dash but was a barn find and two tone green. The car had 36000 original miles on it and hadn't been on the road since the seventies so the spare tire in the trunk was rotted and the gas tank fouled but was fun to drive and show off. You can't mess with a classic. We had the inline 6 cylinder engine with a rochester 1 bbl carburetor.

Pros: looked great

Cons: a real boat.

My Muscle — The nineteen fifty-seven Chevrolet is the coolest regular production car Ever made. The style is one of a kind and there has never been anything close to it. Popular as a family car it also was a huge hit with the 2 door coop that was very sporty. Then came the muscle cars of the 60's and big V-8 engines were lifted into the 1957 which could accept up to a 454 cubic inch engine or about a 6.2 Liter engine. With a lift kit in the back and "Cheater slicks", you were ready to drag race on the strip.

Pros: Style and beauty

Cons: Cost

Classic Hype. — It's tough to be objective with classics like the 57 Bel Air. A restored original Bel Air is slow and handles like a shopping cart. However, it's still pretty plush for an older vehicle. The ride is soft and smooth.. probably too smooth. This is the car that everyone's dad absoultely loves and I can really see why. I never really understood the fin and flair era of American auto styling but this helps.

Pros: Owning one will make you wealthy and get you laid.

Cons: no modern technology... but is that entirely awful?
