That thing looks pretty sharp in a bad photo. It appears that it's already hanging around the gas pumps. LOL

Yeah, fun with an automobile is inversely proportional to the the gas milage attained.

Isn't that a commandment or part of Wally's law or something like that?

You didn't mention the air-conditioning, electric windows, cruise control or the eight channel stereo. What kind of a stripped down go faster is that?

Are those the real old Super Tricks on that thing? They look pretty good.

Chev,Ford,Mopar,Porsche,Studebaker....heck I like em all! When I was a puppy of 15 years old, I joined the Eastgate Classics, I had a 1957 Chev Hardtop I bought for 300 bucks, and a short 6 years later, I took A stock automatic at the Old Time Drag Nationals...and it was 100% bone stock then, drove all through High School with a BUILT 283...but when I turned 19, I started to put it back bone stock...that was in 1984...sold it in 1988 and have kicked myself in the butt everytime I see it...yes, it was still here in Cincinnati, it was for sale when I was selling my 1956 Big Window F100, Both were on the same page, in the Wheeler Dealer in Jumbo ads...that was in 1996, selling for the same price, 12 grand....here are a few more pics of the 57...brings back alot of feelings and a true love of this silly hobbie that we all enjoy, my collection is complete..I'll keep buying and selling stuff, but not looking for anything now.... Shocked Question

It's already got the bumpers off! The only good one I got left is the front one and it probably won't see the light of day. I got a few mailboxes for a scoop, and the front end will definitly be in the air! I'd like to have one of you crack pot welders make me a set of fenderwell headers. E/Gas to go!
