I love me some old American cars! Here are a few nice vintage photos for your motoring pleasure.
That happy lady in the fur coat is Helen, and she is mighty proud of her 1950 Buick Super 8 (in this photo from February 1952). Look at that chrome grille! It looks kind of frowny too, like it will run you down if you misbehave. The slide was labeled "Fon Du Lac", which is just south of Lake Winnebago in Wisconsin. I love Wisconsin!
If you go waaaaay back to the very first photo I ever posted on GDB, you will see this lady and her son in Disneyland. Obviously they are somewhere completely different is this photo... the Badlands? Just a guess. Anyway, they are posing next to their very cool 1957 DeSoto Fireflite.
This last picture may or may not be from somewhere near York, Pennsylvania, circa July 1961. Some beautiful old flivvers are on display for a few admirers. As ancient as these automobiles are, they were only 35 (or so) years old at the time. That would be like us looking at cars from the 1980's (why would anyone do that)... I would rather look at these!
