Monday Memories--June 23 at Lakeside

Is there anything prettier than the Fords of 1954-1956?  Or maybe it's just the memories.  First program of the season was vintage and classic cars on Saturday, June 23.

Murray sez:
Yeah, the good ol days of sexy cars designs.
I wish I had my hot '55 red and white Chevy convertible back. I'd be the envy of the neighborhood!

As a kid in the 1960s, my paternal grandparents had a mid '50s Ford, a two-tone.

Then for a few years either side of 1970, my Dad had a black 1954 Ford that was his to-and-from-work car.

Us boys called my Dad's 54 Ford, "Old Buck," and loved it. Riding with my Dad with the windows down with a few friends is a great memory.

My older sister, however, was in her early teens and embarrassed to be seen in it. If she even suspected that a school friend was in a nearby car in traffic, she would duck down out of sight.

I would love to have one restored like those you photographed. Lovely.
