Default Two California guys restoring a 57 Bel Air

Hey everyone, Mason here. I'm a college student in northern California. Recently I found out a buddy of mine has had a 57 Bel Air sitting in his yard for 20 years.

I finally made it out to take a look and man I couldn't believe how clean it is....No dents or scrapes, good chrome and interior, ran when it was parked, and not nearly as much rust as you'd expect on a car that's spent the entire 21st century in the rain and snow. Check out the pics below.

Anyway, he's fairly old and has come down with some health problems recently so we decided to rebuild it before it's too late for him to enjoy it again, so I'll be coming here for advice every now and then. Heading out there sometime next week to clean all the gunk and critters out, then we'll get to work. Will update as we go!
