The Chevrolet Bel Air is a full-size automobile that was produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors for the 1950–1975 model years. Hardtops in the Chevrolet Deluxe Styleline model range were designated with the Bel Air name from 1950–1952, but it was not a distinct series of its own until the 1953 model year. Bel Air production continued in Canada for its home market only through the 1981 model year.

Der Chevrolet Bel Air war ein PKW der oberen Mittelklasse, der in den Modelljahren 1953 bis 1975 von Chevrolet in den USA zunächst als Luxusversion des Modells Two-Ten und damit Spitzenmodell gebaut wurde. Mit Einführung des Impala als eigenständige Modellreihe 1959 stellte er die mittlere Ausstattungsvariante dar. Ab 1973, nach dem Wegfall des Biscayne, war er Chevrolets günstigstes Angebot in seiner Klasse.

Giant Beetle Hitchhiking On My Kayak (Pine Sawyer Beetle) - Crystalwood Lodge, Klamath County, Oregon

Actually I found this thumb-sized beetle floating in Crystal Creek so I lifted him out of the water and placed him on my kayak mostly to terrify my wife Margo. Mission accomplished! I paddled up next to her and bumped into her boat with this giant crawling around on my prow and she FREAKED!

He had some chompers on him - I believe they eat wood. When irritated he would start biting everything in sight. I let him ride all the way back and didn't know where he had gone until I lifted the kayak to put it on my truck top and he fell off to the ground with a thud.
