First car was a 57' Chevy Bel Air two door post, somewhat rare compared to the two door hardtop.  Exactly like the one in the picture below except a post in between the front and rear side windows, like the 56' in the above post.  Red and black interior and  that black paint was something special.  Absolutely beautiful. 

Any of the 55'...56'....and 57' chevy's were winners.  Don't make them like that anymore.  Had a high school friend that had a bronze and white 56'....just incredible.

 Beautiful, hope you were just visiting at the hospital and everything is okay!

 My dad has a all numbers matching 55 in his garage that I remember riding in to my grandparents every week back in the 60's. It's not been touched in 40+ years now and needs a complete restoration, but I'm about done with taking on projects like that anymore.
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

My wife's first car was a 55 back in the early 90's and it's still sitting in the bar and she's hoping one of the kids will want to fix it up one of these days.

Happy early birthday. You're far older than me, as I was born in December of that year.  :chuckle:
