Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

Trailer park love

57 chevy wagon

To be old. To be happy. Kinda what it’s all about, isn’t it? Looks as though neither could live without the other. Okay, enough of the mushy stuff, let’s get to that car. It’s a 1957 Chevy Bel Air station wagon. How do I know this? The different color or insert in the trim on the rear quarter usually will tell you what model this is, but the photo lost detail there. The wheel covers are also an excellent indicator but still not the final word. What gave this Bel Air away was the combination of the rear quarter panel, the wheel covers, AND those three little hash marks on the front fender above the chrome body side strip. 150 and 210 series’ chevy’s of that year didn’t have trim there. They had indentations for trim, just no trim itself. This is a Bel Air model and if I’m proven wrong, I will don a polka dot skirt and eat those wheel covers!
