Default Sweet Ride

Hi all

This vehicle was the cat's MEOW! more than a few years ago.

It is a classic.

The photo was shot last night so I had to guesstimate exposure
quickly as driver was leaving.

It is a '57 Chevy.

Digicam,

I'm not old enough to remember these being on the road (hehe), but they certainly have a charm about them.

They exude the glamour of an age when chrome was king and fins were in. In my mind this photo revives memories of an e. e. cummings piece:

Don't know why but I think of the '57 Chevy as a watersmooth-silver stallion. Probably because some cars back then had "hydro-flowmatic" transmissions or something like that.
