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...
1956 Chevrolet Del Ray
We bought a Chevy like this in '56 from Heinrich Chevy in Rochester. It was a great car.
1963 Chevrolet Biscayne
Our '56 was replaced in '63 with a Chevy like this. It also came from Heinrich in Rochester.
1958 Edsel Ranger
This is a classic I drive today. I've owned it for 11 years.
1929 Model A Ford
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
