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.

It looks like there some changes in store for the Chevrolet Camaro - the only thing is that we just don't know what Chevy has up its sleeve. Looking at these spy shots, we'd initially be inclined to think that there is just a minor facelift or a new special edition, but upon closer inspection, there are a few oddities about this car that definitely have us intrigued.
The most obvious difference on this prototype is the slightly restyled front fascia with a smaller lower air inlet and the two-bar grille. Then we get to some of the car's mysterious details. For starters, this fascia has the SS vent above the grille, but it looks to be blocked off. Granted this could just be a one-off piece used for testing. What really piqued our interest was at the rear of the car where it has quad exhaust outlets that are used on the ZL1. Could this be the LS7-powered Camaro that we reported on back in December?
At this point, your guess is as good as ours as to what we're looking at here, so let us know in the comments what you think this could be.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for a number of General Motors cars and crossovers bought or currently registered in the hot-climate states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas. As many as 40,859 units consisting of the 2007 Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent and Saturn Ion and the 2007-2009 Chevrolet Cobalt (shown) and its Pontiac G5 twin are being recalled for potential fuel leaks.
This recall is being issued due to potentially faulty fuel pump components that can crack and cause gasoline to leak from the return or supply ports and possibly cause a fire. NHTSA has not indicated how many fuel leaks or vehicle fires have been reported. As a fix, GM will replace the fuel pump modules on all affected vehicles free of charge. Since Pontiac and Saturn have been shuttered, owners will be able to go to another GM-brand dealership to have their vehicles repaired.
While the list of affected cars and crossovers varies by state and model year, if you own any of these models and live in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma or Texas, be sure to check the official notice below for more details.
