I put one of those 8 track stereo quadraphonics in my 57 Chevy in the day. I was the cats meow back then, so I thought. 😄 Was a Nomad station wagon with shag carpet in the back for those few that remember such things. Boy, did we ever get off topic!

Yeah, but we went from Ford trucks to 57 Chevy Nomads...a definite step up.

I had a 55 Chevy 2 door wagon...a 210 model,   not a Nomad.   

I called it...the Shagin' Wagon.

Yeah, a guy I worked with one time had one of those, although a '56.  We had a '56 2 door/post car at the same time.
My wife and I always favored the '56's.  Everyone else in SoCal at the time had either a '55 or a '57, and the '56's were not as prevalent.

Alright, I'll shut up now.  I had a restoration business for about 10 years, and I'd talk old cars all day if you'd let me...just ask my wife.  8)

56 was the better looking of all 3 years.   Better rear fenderwells than the 55,  and a hidden gas cap.  Never cared for the 57 fins.

I had mine lowered in front with a set of American mags.

Don't get me started on cars or bikes either.

'56 for me too, but I'm kinda prejudiced, I was born in '56. ;D

But I am not sure you realize what you heard is not what I meant
