    Back in the days when cars had style, and even with so many makes and models, all changing every year, they made a profit.
    And, not only that... You could sit on the porch and name the cars as they drove by... Unlike today... When they all look the same...



    This was when a car was a car

    Yeah, in the interest of Federally mandated fuel efficiency everyone has ceased to work toward beauty, and all the aerodynamically styled cars are uniquely ugly by comparison to these older ones, and identically styled.
    None of the current cars have bumpers, therefore no chrome. And they all look like Pacers, one of the ugliest of those of by-gone times.

    Is there a secret passage-way into the trunk of the '58 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser?

    Pacer brings back memories. My aunt had one. I remember thinking, what an ugly, goofy ass looking car it was when she bought it new.

    The lack of chrome bumpers is due to the 5 mph bumper. A passenger car must absorb a bump at 5 mph and cause no damage and sustain none. That crap has started to migrate into pickup trucks now. The new Chevy and Government Motors trucks have a bumper with plastic chrome on the ends.

    The 30's were the glory years for automotive art. All the cars from back in the 30's and 40's were gorgeous.

    Some cars today can still hold their own in a beauty pageant, even with all the style killing regulations. uploadfromtaptalk1361091735416.jpg

    We took them for granted at the time, bith those my parents drove, and some I owned through the years. What I'd give for that 1967 GTO I drove for a while . . .
