The chrome and glitz of the 1950's gets a great deal of respect from modern day restoration professionals, who make these glorious machines look far better than they did on the new car showroom floor. This is a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air. The next photo is an HDR artistic effect of this same photo.
If you saw this photo first, you might not realize how different it could be from the original. This is the same 57 Bel Air photo with some HDR pizazz added. The car was a brilliant red and actually closer in color to this HDR image than the other photo.
An HDR alteration of 57 Bel-Air photo. You can see the original photo in the Chrome and Steel Gallery.
