    Your pic doesn't load but I think I have seen this one anyway.... The front goes back even further than the mid 50's, probably to 48-49. The rear does remind you of the 55-56 BelAir.

    Now that your pic loaded, it is a different one than I had seen. Pretty neat looking though huh....

    My parents had a white '57 Belair convertible that they sold for $300 in the mid 1970s. I always loved the lines on that car, too bad it was a rust bucket with poor electrical design. Withought the round headlights, that "face" look is missing, though I agree the back end does have that earlier 1950s feel to it, but it just isn't "boss." [​IMG]

    my dad had a '67 bel air that was built like a tank! i owe my life to that car.
    i was doing something like 50mph and ran into a concrete light pole. i literally unbuckled my seat belt and walked away. there was this huge v-shaped gash in the hood and i busted the radiator. i think that was about it.
    i don't think i'd have been so lucky in my honda...
