The Machiavelli Max post the other day was one of the better looking fake Ferrari kit cars I’ve seen recently — despite its plebian TransAm roots, it looks like a Ferrari to a casual observer. This next kit car…it is interesting, but I don’t think that anybody is going to be fooled into thinking it is a ’57 Chevy. Similar to the Machiavelli, the Belaro also uses a GM F-Body for the mechanical parts, but this time a Camaro. Find this 1997 Chevrolet Camaro Kit Car offered for $19,750 in Ft Lauderdale, FL via eBay.
This next car comes as a tip from Matt C who writes: First there was the ’56 Chevy shortened to two doors – now, if you want a complete tri-5, here’s another way to bring the price down to $10,500: a custom build that really, really didn’t age well.

Find this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air offered for $10,500 in Newport, KY via facecensoring makingstuffup.

Today, most aging stick-in-the-mud (or is that stuck-in-the-mud?) gearheads are lamenting the rarity of manual transmissions, but the […]
The 1957 Chevrolet was available in a multitude of configurations and is the quintessential classic American sedan to own. It probably has something to do with the fact that Chevrolet built 700,000 infinity of the ’57 model or the introduction of GM’s overhead valve small-block V8 that trounced all over Ford’s flat-head V8 all takers.

The 1957 Chevrolet is a car so synonymous with the American classic car and hot rod movement, that this writer knows a cheeky individual who calls every pre-1970 car a “57 Chevy.” When folks correct him and say things like, “actually that is a Chrysler New Yorker” he always replies, “oh yeah, but I believe […]
