You might try going to google.com and typing in "why do brakes squeal." There are several answers that may help you find a solution.
Goodness, George, please don't burn your 57 Pontiac! Those cars are wonderful. (I love old cars, too.) Perhaps you should ask your question of one of the call-in radio or TV shows that feature expert auto mechanics (unfortunately I can't remember the names of them, but maybe another ThriftyFun member can help.) If you belong to an old car club, maybe someone there can help you.
I understand your frustration, but there must be a reasonable answer. When I had brakes replaced on my 1990 Pontiac wagon, they squeaked afterward, & the mechanic told me it happens for a while when they're new, but goes away after driving a while; he was right. Maybe you haven't "driven off" the squeaking, because it's a classic car that you don't drive that much? In any case, find a pro to help you, and please don't burn the car!
