Due to sheer laziness, I am posting two photos of vintage cars on today's "Anything Goes Saturday" installment.
Obviously somebody was very proud of their new automobile! I wish I knew where the picture was taken - the landscape provides an attractive background. I believe that the car itself is a 1959 Chevy Impala - it looks like it might be the 2-door convertible. I love all of the chrome and the elaborate front end and grille. While we can't see them, there were distinctive tail-lights, and some very respectable tail fins - it was 1959, after all.
I believe that this one is from somewhere in California, though the slide is unlabeled and undated. I'm guessing mid-1950's. A certain eskimo from the north will probably be able to ID this one! This photo is "classic suburbia", even with the giant power line tower in the background.
