quite a few yrs ago I worked at a shop restoring nothing but 55-57 chevy's all were frame offs and needed everything but new roofs..I love working on those To me the 57 belair HT is the most perfect car ever designed ,the 55 HT runs a tight second...I would love to get my hands on another one,either one....
Today the plan is to get to the salvage yard with my 18v sawzall and get my camaro rocker...
I will agree with you about the '57 B/A. H.T. It always fascinated me that nobody modifies the body, grill, trim or lights on these! What could you do to make it better? NOTHING! :-)

P.S. I had a turquoise one just out of high school. I never got to paint it... but recently did one for a customer in the same color. It satisfied that old itch. :-)

Right now I'm getting a '34 Chevy delivery street rod ready for primer.
