Few vehicles say classic California cruising better than a 1957 Chevrolet Nomad. We found this flawless Sierra Gold example, complete with surfboard hanging out the back, at this past February’s ‘Back to the Beach‘ car show, held in Palatine, Illinois, at Arlington Toyota and Scion.

Owner, Jerry Kouhot, told us how he came across this rolling icon and a few of the changes he’s made.
