    But Whats It Worth Today?

    With its chrome-topped tail fins and chrome hood rockets, the '57 Chevy rolled off General Motors' assembly lines as a classic from the factory. Surprisingly enough, the '57 Chevy Bel Air is among the most sought after cars in America - for car thieves. In 2012 alone, forty-two '57 Chevys were stolen; a total of 23,250 Bel Airs have been stolen from 1958 through 2012.

    Value today can vary upwards from $80k ... new price in '57 was $5500.00.

    Great investment!

    I don't think so.

    Consider it lost 30% of it value once you drove it off the lot.

    Is it to be stored or used?

    If an investment it would be stored, at what cost over 57 years? Would one store a prime investment like that in a garage just to collect dust, rust and dirt?

    Let it out on the road so junior can impress his date just to crash it.

    As always, stock market-real estate are investments, not cars or other toys.
