2. '57 Chevy Bel-Air (the King of the classics, looked good then, looks good now)
3. '57 Ford Fairlane 500 (the unsung hero which actually outsold the Chevy)
4. '55-57 T-Bird (slow, but sharp)
5. '59 Cadillac (fins gone mad)

Cool '56 convert. I remember a little redheaded boy assembling a 1/25 scale model of one of those back in "the day." Wonder why the guy broke from stock and added all that chrome at the front of the engine compartment?

You'll see several German automobiles listed here because of the influence of a German family who lived as our neighbors as I was growing up in the fifties. Their son was my age and we palled around together. His dad had been a mechanic with the Wehrmacht during WWII, working on armored vehicles. After moving to New Mexico, he worked for a local German car dealership and would bring home various German cars to work on in his off time. I became fascinated with these cars.

'55 BMW Isetta (known as the "Rolling Egg")
'57 BMW 507 (top speed of 140mph in those days!)
'58 Karmen Ghia Convertible
'59 Porsche 356B & C - the car that made Porsche
'51 VW Beetle - classic 'idiot' stick turn signals, split front windshield and tiny rear window.
'56 Ford T-Bird
'55 Ford Fairlane Sunliner Convertible

Hey, Deuce, since it seems you're big on Lincolns, I thought you'd like to see this 1988 Town Car that's in the family.

It's not bad on gas. It has a fuel-injected 302 cid engine and gets 28-30 mpg on the highway. On top of that it has a big 17-gal. tank. All that, and a continental kit to boot! So run right out and find you a nice '88 Town Car! What? Are you still here? Go on! Get out of here!
