    ya saw this story the other day

    first car I drove was a '57 Chevy Belair

    we at one time had two of them ...

    one of them (without A/C) I sat in for 3 1/2 days as we drove from St Louis to Bozeman in mid-July .... and the only Interstate part of the trip ended at Kansas City

    Here is short list of cars. Justin Hyde is a **** poor journalist. He can't tell the difference between a 55 Chevy and a 57.

    If it polishes out like this one I'd bet a lot. These cars are all original equipment a collectors wet dream.
  • JulietJuliet Posts: 49,774 Senior Member
    I hope they didn't set with oil in the crankcase or gas in the tank for all this time.
  • JulietJuliet Posts: 49,774 Senior Member
    1976 Chevrolet Cheyenne pickup

    The most rust prone pick up truck ever made.
  • JulietJuliet Posts: 49,774 Senior Member
    They also have a Vega and a Monza. Vega was Chevy's response to the Ford Pinto and had a really bad engine and Pintos had that really nice gas tank.

    I owned both a 57 Chev Bel Air and a 59 Impala. The 59 was junk but the 57 was terrific.

    I emailed the auction people and suggested they consider getting the event on TV, missing a golden opportunity if they don't. Easily millions would watch.

    If 1957 Chevys are so great, why did they stop making them?

    Too many babies made in the back seats. A real shame but hey population control was big back then.

    Because the plastic inserts on the tail fins were an affront to Nature, and to Nature's God.

    IMO, OTOH, the '55s were Chevy's high water mark, akin to Ford's '56s. The '55 Nomad or its near-twin the '55 Pontiac Safari are among the very few post-war American cars I actually would like to own.
