Default 1950's Cars

These were around in my day but really a decade before I got into cars seriously but its still fun - I missed most all the Mercs on the last page and surprisingly was able to pick out the DeSotos and Packards -

58%, but then again these cars came out when my dad was 20. He would have been able to nail all of them.

77%...... Growing up in the New Mexico Desert 50's and 60's we would see some weird s##t. My dad bought a used Studebaker Commander for $75.00 somewhere around 1962.

I got 4/4 (I knew the fins got bigger as the years went up), then 2/4 ...then lost interest in it.

They sorta all look alike to me.

I remember having picnics in some of those cavernous trunks!

I got my driver's license in a 57 Plymouth station wagon with no power steering and three on a tree!

73%, I remember Dad having a Studebaker, but not sure what model it was. Just thought we were riding in style in the mid 50's

41 for 48, 85% But I kinda' got lost with the early '50's and the "oddball" stuff. I actually had an old Henry-J - can't remember what year it was (early '50's?), but it was a VERY rad looking car for it's day!

Very cool!

Regards,

Got an 85!
If my Dad was still alive he would have slapped me in the back of the head for not getting a 100!
