Those photos came out great Dad! I love that you have your own corner here, on this website, too! I remember taking the picture of you on the driveway. You had just come home from work and we were about to head out to one of the car shows.
I think one of my favorite moments at this last show, was learning about the 1940 Lasalle. It's in such GREAT condition too!
We'll go back soon!

That 67 Impala harkens back memories of my friend called "Pigeon". WHY? Cause he raised..what else..PIGEONS.
He used to pick me up in his father's company car and we'd go cruising. We traversed the switchbacks in that Impala. It handled like Missy Piggy on Roller Skates on a road to the local ski lodge. Oh how he beat on that car.
The car was always full of gas. It took quite a few runs back and forth all evening running the slalom with me as time keeper.
That 6 cylinder was wound tighter than a cheap TIMEX. The car was a 3 speed on the column. Speed shifting was impossible. The saying was: you can eat lunch between gear changes.
How crazy we were, how stupid we were, how happy we were. HOW FREE WE WERE.
My youth was not wasted on the young...I relive it daily.[Reply to this comment]

Hi Rob, I have a 327 4 BBL in my 67 with dual exhausts putting out about 300 hp. Not a lot from today's cars but big back then. It's also a 3 speed auto not 2 speed. Friend of mine has same car with 4 sp on the floor. Makes a big difference. I am always amazed how a certain car can freshen up a lot of old memories. Some good, some not so good. But there nonetheless. And you're right we were crazy back then, but we were happy.[Reply to this comment]

Love that color combination and it was the original color that my 57 Chev Bel Air hardtop came in before I changed it to Tropical Turquoise and India Ivory. Looking back on it now, I wonder what came over me to do that. Back in 1992, my dad even wondered why I did that. He prefered the Gold and Beige.[Reply to this comment]

The turquoise would actually be my first choice color, it was a real cool "fifties" color after the boring "forties" colors. I think you made a wise choice changing the color on your 57 Chevy. But I do like the bronze color combo too. Cheers.[Reply to this comment]

Nothing before or since can beat the super style and flash of the 1950's. The cars had so much going for them on so many levels. The mid to late 1950's will forever represent the most beautiful era of automobile styling, as far as I am concerned. Every other era pails in comparison, as far as flash and style goes.
