Chevrolet Bel Air
"The 1957 Chevy is the car everybody knows. Maybe its the fins, maybe its because during the sixties every high school kid wanted one. Ford actually outsold Chevrolet in 1957, but the 1957 Chevy has been called 'the most popular used car in history.' That's staying power.� With its 'baby Cadillac' style and powerful V8 engine options, the 1957 really was, to quote a Chevy ad of the day, 'sweet, smooth and sassy.'� They came in a two-tone paint scheme and two-tone interior. As the years progressed the Bel Air was available with a variety of engine sizes, including the V8 which was normally reserved for the Corvette. The Chevrolet Bel Air was a very dramatic and bold vehicle with many recognizable features such as the rocket-inspired twin spear ornaments inset on the hood, and the chrome outlined rear tail fins."
