|Mike Seminoff’s 1957 Chev Wagon – This is a superb example of the Marque. It has a 572 G.M. crate motor. The frame is a complete Art Morrison unit made in Fife, Washington with new Corvette running gear in a frame built to fit the 57. All in all a very impressive car that takes second place to nothing in the power and innovation department.|
