1957 Chevrolet 2 Dr. Hardtop Custom Rod
I am proud to list this 57 Bel Air custom rod. It is a wonderful driving and well equipped ride. It was built with nice components and thought out and assembled very well. This 57 Bel Air has power steering, power brakes(disc front - drum rear) air conditioning, and an automatic transmission with overdrive. It was built for comfortable and dependable driving with long trips in mind. At 70 mph the tach reads 2,200 rpm and has great passing acceleration. The engine has less than 2,000 miles on it. The car was built about 5 years according to the previous owner who installed this almost new engine. The floors, inner rockers, body braces, and trunk pan are all solid and there is no under coat on the under carriage. The body is solid and nice, bright work is nice and the bumpers appear to have been replated recently. All of the lights, horn, instruments, wipers, stereo, and windows work. This Bel Air was born in built in Atlanta and was born a V-8 car, VC vin #.
This cool ride has an almost 350 cid Chevy engine with a Edlebrock 4bbl. carb, K&N air cleaner, aluminum intake manifold, ceramic coated headers, billet valve covers, billet pulleys, chrome alternator, aluminum radiator with over flow tank, flex flan and electric fan, power steering, power brakes with disc on front, 200R4 transmission with overdrive and the stock drive shaft, new front shocks & rear air shocks, Vintage air conditioning and heater set up, electric wiper motor, 21/2" exhaust with flow master type mufflers, exhaust is all welded (no clamps), 17" American Racing Hopster polished aluminum wheels (matching spare wheel in the trunk) new Riken Raptor tires (245/45 ZR17 on front) (255/50 ZR17 on rear) LED tail lamps, and much more. To much $$ to count. Buy one already built and ready to go and not have to wait a year or two to build one. Spring is just around the corner.
The interior is very nice. It is styled like the original, it is vinyl with cloth inserts. It has 4 sets of seat belts for safety. The dash and gauges are all original and has a modern 3 gauge set mounted under the dash and a tachometer mounted on the steering column. It has a custom audio radio, am-fm, cassette and mp3 compatible deck in the dash that fits like the original with no modifying, It has 2- 6x9 clarion speakers mounted under the rear package tray. It has a nice custom steering wheel that fits the looks of the car well, medium tinted glass, 4 Chevrolet rubber floor mats, The air and heat work very well for driving year round.

There are still plenty of companies that haven't gotten the whole social media thing down pat yet, but Hot Wheels isn't one of them. During the recent Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, Hot Wheels created a lot of buzz for itself by using a vending machine filled with Chevrolet Camaro models, but instead of money to get the cars, show attendees just had to use Twitter.

To get the free car, people were asked to send a tweet to Hot Wheels Canada saying what they liked about the new Hot Wheels Edition Camaro, and including the #ChevyCIAS hashtag. This seemed to be a popular marketing tool, too, as AdWeek reports that the @HotWheelsCanada account more than tripled in followers during the course of the 10-day show. Looking ahead, this could open up even more innovative marketing possibilities using social media.
Check out the video posted below to watch how it works, and while the auto show has ended and the free-car giveaway has too, we're almost certain that some of the 1,500 freebies will make their way onto eBay.
If you are a big fan of automotive oddities, this may come as a little treat. If you are a Shelby or Mustang diehard, prepare to have your sensibilities violated.

The master fabricators at BigDaddyCustoms are the minds behind what you see above. At first, it appears to be a slightly misshapen custom Mustang, modeled after "Eleanor" from Gone In 60 Seconds, but upon further examination, something appears to be amiss. In fact, the custom shop, based in India, has created an Eleanor replica grafted upon a lowly Chevrolet Optra. While it may take a second for the Optra to ring a bell, you should recognize its badge-engineered sibling, the Daewoo Lacetti, used on Top Gear.
We don't know what star would opt for the Reasonably Priced Car in Shelby's clothing, but it's clearly someone more concerned with the aesthetic than the performance credentials of this automotive mash-up.
It was 1966 when Chevrolet launched its challenger to the wildly successful Ford Mustang, the Camaro. While the competition between the two brands was already healthy, the arrival of the Camaro set off one of the most intense, model-to-model rivalries in the industry.
That competitive spirit hasn't stopped Chevy and the Camaro from wishing Ford's iconic muscle car a Happy 50th Birthday as the Ford's April 17 anniversary rolls around. These two cars have been linked over the years, and while the rivalry took a break for a few years in the 2000s, today's competition between the Camaro and Mustang is as fierce as it's ever been.
You might recall that this friendliness when it comes to major milestones isn't too rare. Ford put on quite a display for General Motors' hundredth anniversary back in 2008. As the Camaro's fiftieth birthday approaches in 2016, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Mustang sending its best wishes to its Bowtie rival.
