A different view of an American classic. Not thrilled with the setting but.....it is what it is.

No biggie. Don't know enough to tell year by just looking at cars. License plate has 1957 on it. That's what I'm going by.

No, you're right, it's definitely a '57 I sometimes forget the rear end styling between the years, but those fins are definitely '57

I'm a car buff and always appreciate angles of performance cars of the past. The way the dual exhausts come out of the back of that old Chevy...reminds me of the barrels of a couple of six guns being wielded by a wild west sheriff from the days of yore.

That '57 Chevy looks like it means 'business' ....and might surprise a few modern performance cars in a straight line...but only of course at a sanctioned drag race track.

I am not a car buff but have friends who are. That said there is no denying she's got beautiful lines. Love the six gun reference.

The venue may not be ideal, however your angle of attack is excellent. What a great eye. What a great automobile.
