When cars had class

Pappy

Living the Dream
In the 50s, it was so easy to tell what kind of car it was. On most cars now, I have to look at the emblem to see the maker.
I rode in a lot of Hudsons before, but never in a 1950 convertible. The 51 Ford was a sweet car and my uncle had the convertible.

When I was a kid my mother had an old worn out 55 Bel Air similar to this one.

What ever happened to two tone paint, roof gutters and side vent windows, I really miss those side vent windows.

If you'e discussing class, and I mean REAL class, then there's no era like the 1930's that had it!

Nothing since 1937 could match the beautiful Duesenberg Phaeton!

It was also the fastest and most expensive car of its time.

Here's a 1931 Deusey, in Phaeton style:

Hey HollyDolly, Do you folks still drive on the wrong side of the street? (Ha Ha)

You DO make some fantastic cars; MGs (Morris Garage), Jags (Coventry) + several others.
(Can't think of their names.)
