Okay this is tough.  I didn't like the '56 as much as I liked the previous years '55.  So that said, the '57 get's my vote, though I'm not a fan of Dodge styling for that year.  Does that make any sense?  Amazed

Despite the colours, I prefer the lines of the 1956 Dodge. The tail of the 1957 looks like an add-on afterthought. Removal creates a beautifully clean line from front to back.

I like both these great Dodges. For the 1957 and 1958 Dodges, I love the fins, although photoshopping then off still makes for a cool-looking car.

I went with 56, the tail of the 57 is too much for my taste.

I much prefer the styling of the 56-55 Dodge over the 57-58; even though it's old school by comparison.

I picked the 57.  I personally like the fins.  Something different that you will never see again on an automobile.

Removal of the fins shows how ridiculously out of proportion the tails of these cars are.  The fin was needed to break up the line and make it shorter, IMO. 

Or maybe it is just the camera angle.

This was difficult, but I surprised myself and voted 1957. It just looks so good!

I'm one who likes the Flight Sweep stabilizers of the 1957 through 1959 Dodges.  The '56 is nice, too, but as a kid, those taillights sort of scared me.  They reminded me of an angry dog with his mouth open, ready to bite me. 😬   Such an imagination. 🙄
