1957 CHEVOLET BELAIR CONVERTIBLE

Last year I went to one of the car shows that is put on in the area.  I do enjoy going to these shows to see the cars of the 50’s & 60’s that I remember pretty well.  Some of the shows that I’ve been to have many cars for show.  Some of them are restored back to their former glory, and some are restored pretty good, but all of them are in running condition.

While walking around all these restored cars, I was handed a slip that let me cast my vote for the Best Of Show.  This is the car that I picked out of all the other entries.

In 1957 I was only 10 yrs. old and didn’t pay much attention to cars then.  Now, that I’ve grown older I realize just how much these cars of the 60’s affected what cars are today.

I talked to the owner of this beautiful restored car and he told me that it took him more than 20 yrs. to restore this back to it’s original condition.  Told me that in the process it nearly destroyed his marriage, and cost him more than $80,000 to have it look the way it does.  It was for sale at the price of $100,000!  Click on the Image to appreciate the beauty of this famous car of the 50’s & 60’s.

Can you imagine having a car like this?
