THE 50'S AND THE EARLY 60'S ALSO MEANT CARS...AND WHAT CARS! TAIL FINS, DUAL EXHAUSTS, LOTS OF CHROME AND THOSE ROARING MUFFLERS. I ALSO REMEMBER THE CARS MY FAMILY HAD; THE ONES WE WERE DRIVEN TO SCHOOL IN. THE ONES THAT WE TOOK TO GRANDMA'S EVERY SUNDAY NIGHT. THE ONES THAT WERE PART OF THE FAMILY. TWO CHEVROLETS IN PARTICULAR FIT THAT DESCRIPTION...

I also have this beauty. Not exactly fifties, but a real blast to drive.

Rolling sculpture, thats what they were. The use of plastic was unheard of and no one ever imagined new cars with painted bumpers, hubcaps or door handles. Chrome and stainless steel were kings. 2 and 3 tone paint. Winged hood ornaments that said "this car has style." No cookie cutter construction. Each make of car had personality. And each year looked different. I remember going to the dealerships when the new models came out. I grabbed as many brochures as I could carry. Everyone was so excited. The new model year was truly an event!

Other great cars I have owned: 56 Ford Fairlane, 54 Studebaker Commander, 63 Studebaker, 64 Chevy Impala, 61 Chevy Impala, 61 Buick, 59 Edsel Ranger, 53 Ford Customline, 58 Studebaker Commander, 54 Pymouth Belvedere, 57 Chevy Bel-Air
