'57 Chevy

As I mentioned earlier, I visited the America on Wheels museum this past Saturday.  I've been chomping at the bit to post this, but I've been a bit too busy to get to it.  This '57 Chevy Station wagon was one of many beautiful cars on display.  I love both the year (same year I was born) and color. I wish I was in as good shape as this car is!

Ah yes, those were the days when the term "lead sled" had real meaning behind it. 'tis a pity modern cars don't have lines like those.

To get that kind of reflection, someone must have spent days with the wax!

That is some fine polishing somebody did there. Reflections all over.

Awesome shot. I LOVE 57 Chevy's in that color blue. I am not into cars in general, but cars from that "era" are so interesting, I one day soon want to get out and find some to photograph!!
