I cannot pretend that my knowledge of cool old cars goes any farther back than the mid 60's. However, I would be a bonehead for not including the most iconic of American cars, the 1957 Chevrolet BelAir.
I caught this cool dude while at Meramec Caverns with the kids today. It was a very nice surprise.
The owner of this beauty drives it. It's not a trailer queen, it's not a show piece. But it turns heads, for sure.
The BEST part of this car, right here. Just so perfect.
Hard to argue about the yellow/white/chrome combination. Super clean.
The hooded headlights just do it for me. Gives the front such a personality.
The interior was nice. A combination of new and old. Again, you can tell that it's driven and that is awesome. The plates are from Michigan. Maybe taking a last tour before putting it away for the winter? I caught it driving away, and it sounded great. Who knows what's under the hood? Doesn't matter, it's a V8 and that's perfect.
