Look at the parking lot in the background, I could spend the rest of my life there.


===============================

I can see it now, Sid has gone missing and we have to send out a
search party !

At the time that photo was taken, I lived just a few miles from there,
and scenes like this warped my brain forever !

I had to go back a page to look Doc. It is an neat picture. Sid, nice pics Man!. As an Australian, this thread and lots of other threads on this site are my best reference to this American era, I get the vibe, and I see why it is so loved. We had a similar thing in Aus, but much smaller scale. I missed a lot of it, I'm only 53 years old. But lots of Aussies are keen old car Guys (both back in the day and now). Same with our Kiwi brothers. I am perplexed,,, what is the car next to the 61 Plym, the pic with the guy in the white shirt? Steve.

That car is a 61-62 Pontiac Tempest. The standard engine was a 4 cylinder 194 cu. in. which was a 389 V-8 cut in half.

Thanks, Steve. yes, same here in Germany, it was called the "american era". German manufacturers of all kinds copied american things and the charts were full of american pop songs converted to German
There is a reason the "50s" were already missed and worshipped in the early 70s, barely 10 years later, when the memories were still vivid, as mirrored in countless movies. Some songs even made it back into the charts. Looking back, I miss the 70s, as terrible and tastless they appeared to me back then. I took all the relics of the wonder years for granted, they are mostly gone now.

That car is a 61-62 Pontiac Tempest. The standard engine was a 4 cylinder 194 cu. in. which was a 389 V-8 cut in half.


The 1961-63 Tempest, ½ V8 engine up front, also used Corvair transmissions (manual and Powerglide) mounted in the rear. The driveshaft from the engine to the transmission was a long bar, similar to a suspension torsion bar, so there was a slight bend along the bar. Won Motor Trend's Car of the Year Award for 1961. It was all downhill from there and the 1964 Tempest shared its new intermediate body shell with the Chevelle.

Spot the FL. According to Hemmings it is 1974. ? What is the newest car you see there? 68/69?

I see the white Imperial near the back. The black Cadillac/Monte Carlo looking thing in back of the "C" pole is the newest I see, but yeah, I would have expected this to have been taken a little earlier.

Yes, I'm guessing late 60s. The finned (57-59?) Imperial is the only FL I can make out.

It's funny to see that even back in the '50s people didn't know how to park! That Chrysler is way over the line and the '55 Chevy isn't even fully in it's spot!
