    It's amazing that the tri-5 (1955, 1956, 1957) Chevy's are not in this game. This is a glaring omission for the Chevrolet brand.

    I'm not a huge Chevy fan, but I do like chrome. This car should certainly be in the game!

    One of the finest pieces of Americana, looking absolutely at it's best. Almost makes me want to watch Pulp Fiction.

    I don't know why this has never been featured in any Gran Turismo game. This car, is honestly one of the top 5 most iconic Chevrolets ever.
    Kaz, you've added names like the Corvette, Camaro, El Camino, Nova, etc. but not the Bel Air!?

    These cars are good for weddings, drive-in movies and cruising around the town at 25 mph. That’s it. I actually owned a ‘56 Bel Air a few years back, but I would never want it to be included in Gran Turismo, and I can’t see why anyone would. The old VW bus is boring enough, and that’s a goddam go kart compared to these American dinosaurs.

    It's the novelty of it. Gran Turismo has always had slow boring novelty cars. The PS4/Sport era is no different.

    Literally the classic iconic American car. Definitely like to see it in game.
