In spite of the popularity of the 1957 Chevy, Ford outsold it that year. Yet the Chevy became the icon, based on styling and it's engine. You hardly ever see a 57 Ford these days.
I loved the Fords though.
I had two '57 Chevy 2 door hardtop Bel Airs (my first and second cars) and I loved both of them. But do I wish I still had one? No... An old car now is, to me, a hole in the garage into which one shovels money.
One of my best friends in HS had a '59 BelAir (in 1964/5). (Only a couple of my friends had cars; the other one had a VW bus his family bought in 1964 when they were in Germany for about 6 months.) The BelAir was pretty cool, but Jerry spent his life feeding it.
