From Youre Garage #9 Marvin and Kelly Meyer's BADD 57 Chevy

Thank you for showing interest in my car. Here is a little background and a few pictures.

I bought this car when I was 15 years old from my brother-in-law. It was the first car I had ever purchased, fast forward 52 years later, and I still own it.

I drove the car throughout high school, and it has gone through a few changes in its time. In the late 70's the higher you could raise your car the cooler you were.

It went into storage, and in 2011 my brother and I decided to rebuild it. 

From 2011 through 2013 in a three car garage with my brother being the lead builder, we took the car down to the frame and began building her back up.

All but the paint, body, and interior was completed in "house" aka three car garage.

This 1957 Two-Door Hardtop Belair has become part of the family.

The build was a great experience, but the bond, friendship and love for my brother was even greater.

Thank you so much

WOW! Fantastic 57! Hard to believe this was built in a garage! Even better is the fact that you did it with your brother and how many memories created for the both of you in building this car! Thank you so much to Marvin Meyer for sharing his beautiful car with us! If you'd like your car featured on the blog like Jim's is, please send photos, stories and information to me at: I would love to feature your Street Machine on the website!
