That 'shine' is from rubbing the grease off their hands onto their jeans, Harry :P . Used to leave a spot wherever I sat :P .

Oh man, Mj---that is sweet. Brings back memories. I had a four door 57.......uh, 40 years ago, and after blowing up the straight 6, it sat many days like yours is sitting here. Learned a lot, swapping out the 6 and putting a V8 in.

Are those Astros on it? Back then, seemed most guys ran either Cragar SSs or Astros.

Nice Dio MJ!! But why are they making that poor alien work? ;)

Yup, that's how I remember seeing most '57's back in the '70's as a teen.............now everyone seems to want one like new as they were in '57! :D

My Aunt drove one like it in 1965, always loved the yellow. Her ex had a body shop and built the car, had a black interior and Cragars on it . I can't remember what motor was in it but it was chromed out. Yours also reminds me of the Hot Rod Mag. car. Nice build.
