Neat '57, I had a '55 that I bought with my hard earned money when I turned 16. It was a 3 speed 6 cylinder and was flawless when I sold it. Man do I regret selling that car, my dad encouraged me to buy something "Current" instead of sinking a lot of money into that car. So I bought a '69 Camaro which I drove for years as my only car. I regret selling those 2 cars more than words can say.
Enjoy your new ride, I hope it give you as much satisfaction as my '55.
