LIMA —“What’s new? Everything!” That’s how the commercial advertising the 1955 Chevy Bel Air started out. This classic car symbolized America’s optimism as it came out of World War II a victor. This began the decade of fins and whitewalls. The 1955 Chevy Bel Air changed customers’ impression of Chevy from the stodgy and conservative to the sporty and youthful. Chevy’s slogan, “The Hot One,” helped market this new Chevy Bel Air to consumers as well. This is one of the most-remembered classic cars one will find today.



Gary and Linda Noss, of Lima, brought their 1955 Chevy Bel Air to The Lima News’ Real Wheels Cruise-In. They have owned it for two years. They completed a ground up restoration on this beauty which took one year and three months. Their favorite reason for owning this car? The attention it gets at car shows.
