This gorgeous 1957 Chevrolet BelAir 2-door Sedan was built from the ground up with the idea of creating the
“perfect” compromise between a factory original 1957 model car, with the conveniences, drive ability, and
reliability of a newer car. That idea was achieved perfectly in this vehicle, and it has to be one of the finest of
its type in existence.
This beauty was built from a very original, solid, complete, and dry local vehicle, adhering to a plan that was
developed, supervised and/or actually executed by a very meticulous hobbyist/craftsman (who happens to be the
current seller since the car was actually built for his own use and enjoyment). The attention to detail and
perfection in this car is absolutely stunning!
The restoration work began with a complete disassembly of the vehicle and inspection of ALL original parts. The
body was removed from the frame and mounted on a rotisserie for a thorough and complete
restoration/refinish/replacement of every part on the car as required to insure that no detail, however small, was
overlooked. It would be impossible to include all of the details of the restoration in this paragraph, so the
highlights are listed on the bullet chart below. Suffice it to say that this car is a knock out from any
perspective, be it the underside, the interior, the body and paint, the trunk, the engine compartment and any other
area, as shown in the photos in this listing.

This list could go on and on, but it shows the detail and quality put into the restoration. Since completion of
the project, the seller/owner has driven the car approximately 4900 trouble-free miles, mostly to car shows (where
it has won many awards) and on short “Sunday drives”. It never ceases to draw attention and compliments where
ever it goes.

Kurt Busch will channel Ricky Bobby for another NASCAR race, this time driving a Wonder-sponsored Chevrolet SS, in this weekend's Camping World RV Sales 500 at the Talladega Motor Speedway. Unlike past tie-ins, though, there's actually an element of sponsorship here (the "Me" car was done when Busch was running on a team without sponsorship).
It was arranged by Flower Foods, the new owner of the Wonder brand. Wonder was part of the bankrupt Hostess company, which temporarily exited the US market 2012, and set off the Great Twinkie Shortage.
Busch has made something of a habit of channeling characters from famous racing movies, most recently running Tom Cruise's City Chevrolet livery from Days of Thunder in a Nationwide Series race earlier this year. Busch kicked off his movie-inspired antics, though, at Talladega in 2012, when he raced El Diablo's ("It's like... Spanish for like a fighting chicken") "Me" car complete with a cougar on the hood. He even went so far as to channel the lovable idiot that is Ricky Bobby during the race, dropping a few catchphrases about macchiatos and slingshots.
How would you react if someone just showed up at your place of work with a new, 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, complete with all the trimmings? While a lot of us would likely be flipping out over the still rare sports car, it's a fair bet many more of us would be responding like Pattie here, whose boyfriend stopped by her work to show her her new C7.
Speechless and shocked as she seems, she does end up taking it out for a drive, despite claiming she wasn't really outfitted to handle the car's seven-speed manual transmission at the time. From the sound of the video, we got the impression that she knew the car was coming, just not that it was anywhere near ready for delivery. It also, as Pattie says, seems like her boyfriend is more excited about the car than she (which, can we blame him?). Take a look down below for the full video of this C7 Stingray delivery.
As inventory of the Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse continues to pile up, General Motors will be idling its Fairfax Assembly Plant for two weeks, according to Automotive News. This move comes about a month after the plant was shut down for three weeks in late December and early January for the same reason. As of January 31, the GM had a 94-day supply of Malibu stock while the LaCrosse was a little worse with a 117-day supply.
Just last week, GM announced that it would be investing $600 million in upgrading this plant, but it's unclear what future plans the company has in store for Fairfax considering slow sales of both the plant's models. We do expect a refreshed and more luxurious LaCrosse shortly and an early design update for the Malibu to be announced at some point this year, although we have had no official word as to when either will happen.
