WHAT MAKES A LOOK?

Identifying Old School and New School Style Cues

Do you know it when you see it, but can’t exactly describe what IT is? Whether it’s a show-built classic, or a new pony car – each generation has a definitive aura surrounding it. From body styling and lighting to wheels and tires, here are some key features to help identify those old and new school looks.

Chevy Bel Air | VF531

Featuring a 2-piece construction, classic 5-spoke design, and blindingly radiant chrome finish, the VF531 is a great addition to any vintage and classic ride. The VF531’s soft lip barrel adds a unique perception of width, as well as it’s curved profile – aiding in maximum caliper clearance.
