1957 Chevrolet Nomad
In 1957 Nomad’s V8 engine displacement grew to 283 cubic inches, so the last engine of the first generation put out 220 horsepower. The first generation ran for the 1955-57 model years, and although it was a good looker it was not a hot seller. The 1958 model year ushered in a 4-door Nomad, which sold much better. Highly collectible in today’s market, the 2-door Nomads have a decidedly hip factor that gives them more street cred than their 4-door siblings.

  1. Great rendition — especially of the Cadillacs. When will we ever see another Cadillac to rival those shown here? We need a new icon without worrying about fuel efficiency and “organic” greenness.

  2. A bright red Cadillac convertible was my ideal car when I was a kid and it still is. They don’t make such gorgeous cars any longer.
