It Was A Big, Gas-guzzling Car But I Loved It (maybe Because All The Boys Loved It). — The steering wheel was too big for me. I needed a pillow behind me so I could see over the steering wheel. I believe the car was green and white.

Pros: I used to drive up and down Main Street to show off.

Cons: It used a lot of gas.

My 57 Belair — Love to drive and wave back at everyone. Feels good to finally own one. Becoming more rare. The 57 rides very well and has good acceleration and class, but it loves gas stations. Have considered selling it because I don't drive it enough, but hate dealing with people who try to low ball. It's not worth the trouble.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: A great antique classic 57 Belair with 288 engine, PS, PB, and 3spd Automatic. Rare Desert Sand original color. New interior. Rode a bus all the way to El Paso from Arkansas to buy a rust free car and drove it back.

Cons: A constant project as all antique cars. Needs PS rebuild (leaks) heater repair, Bumpers really need to be re chromed.

Beautiful Peace Of History — I like the color choices for this car. I also like the four door design which makes it easier to get others in and out of the back seat. The car is comfortable to ride in and has plenty of room. It still needs some more work but it looks to be minor fixes. The car accelerates easy and it stops easily when the brake is applied. I feel safe riding in this big car due to the heavy material it is built out of.

Pros: The ride is smooth. Good excelleration. Easy handling.  

Cons: Needs some work.

One Of The Nicest Unrestored 57 Chevy — Wish I had a 4:56 posi rear because it has 200 r 4 transmission would make it more fun to drive . Would drive it across country without a bit of worry a very dependable car I've owned it for 25 years and will be passed down to my grand kids .

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

Pros: Really  was a preachers car was a 6 cylinder changed it to almost correct 57 dual quad 245 hp because it's a automatic

Cons: Bad gas millage

57 Bel Air Sport Coupe — Straight bodied 57 2dr sport coupe, the best shape of this 50's icon car. The performance built 402 big block / TH400 combo makes sure this car pulls really well. Hae also now fitted servo disc brakes, upratred springs and HD anti roll bar to improve stopping and cornering. Electronic bypass valves allow exhausts to be either open header or through flowmasters so noise wise, this is a real jeckyll and hide. The wide overlap cam gives an excellent V8 burble on idle and on full throttle the noise is somehwere between epic and biblical.. Gets looks and thumbs up wherever it goes. Not for Wallflowers!

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

Pros: Epic noise and acceleration, a complete escape from the normal world

Cons: 11 mpg average..

Powerful, Hot And Tough 57 Chevy — 8+half years and a small fortune to fully rebuild from scratch. Black cherry pearl paint. Cream & Burgundy Italian leather interior. Rockford Fosgate sound system loud enough to be heard over the loud & lumpy 454 Big Block V8 bored and stroked to 503 with TH400 trans. 12.6 seconds on 1/4 mile. Foose mags. Smokes (tyres), Drinks (fuel) heavily! This is maxed out fun on 4 wheels and we love cruising in her most weeks.

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

Pros: Love everything about this car!

Cons: Hate nothing about this car!

Teen Age Kid Thought It Was A Sports Car. By Fulcrum
