Photo of a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air (Papa's 57)


The car belonged to my grandpa, he died in 2007 due to lung cancer. This is one of six 57s that he owned in the past. This is the only one left in his name. The car has seen four different paint jobs. It was almost stolen in a robbery that took place where my grandpa had lived, that happened about a year after he died. After the robbery, we moved the car to our house. It was restored by my uncle in Dallas.
