Dedicated to Kevin Krueger and all the rest of us who pumped that “high test”…. and wondered where the hell is the gas cap!

As hidden on a 1957 Chevrolet BelAir!

    Yes, remember it well… trickier was the 56 Chev gas filler. We used real paper towels on the windshield, no squeegees back then!

  • I don’t miss those cold winter weekends pumpin’ that “260”! Ah, sweet memories…. Thanks and regards..

    At least GM put them on the driver’s side or center. Then along came the imports with the filler on the passenger side. Once you found it, the customer would say….‘just put $2 worth in it’. Nicely taken John!

  • Heck, Saturday nites… the Olds 442 or Chevelle SS got $3.00 of Sunoco 260 and cruised/drag raced till the wee hours and…. took Mom and Dad to church Sunday morning :>))

    Excellent detail shot of the classic ol’ 57, John! They really could have used this photo in the original owner’s manual. LOL

  • Thank you so much, Gene! the manuals in the 50’s were what, 10/20 pages… now you’ve about 50 just telling you about goernment requirements and legal disclaimers.
