‘57 Chevy Bel Air Hot Rod Power Tour

1957 Chevy Bel Air SAM Class Project

For the last 6 weeks a team of SAM Tech students in the Block Program met on weekends and after class to build a resto-mod ’57 Chevy for the Hot Rod Power Tour. The Team of SAM Tech students will be driving from Texas to Wisconsin (The starting point for this year’s Power Tour) and completing the long haul to Baton Rouge, LA. The students will complete the nearly 3000 miles round trip in a little over a week.
