    Default 55 Belair Retrolet

    If you were going to buy a full size car wouldn't this be a contender?
    It's no wonder GM is in the tank when you compare the current Impala to the Retrolet.
    It's actually built on a 90's Chrysler Concorde platform.

    Or paint it black and white and bring back the series "Car 54 Where Are You?"

    Very unique!! Sure a lot sharper looking than the '55 I owned (I'd probably take mine, if I had the choice though)!

    There are several of those kits out now, they also have one that transforms your 1997-03 Camaro into 1957 Chevy and I have seen one in person and I must say they look very good. The funny thing is they have a kit for the 1998-2004 S-10's, but unfortunately they used the Studebaker front and rear for that application.
