Seventeen-year-old David Tirpak totalled this '57 hardtop 23 years ago. He later rebought the car, and rebuilt it to look the way his dad Ernest would've driven it when he was a kid. The 283 is bone stock, the glass is original, and the 21-year-old paint looks great. The '53 Chevy grille teeth were installed between the '57 parking lights.
