Not exactly a Forward Look in a picture or on a postcard, but here is a sixty second commercial for the 1956 Dodge Texan, a model that was sold only in that state - or at least that is what is said. It is in this You Tube video of 50s commercials; it starts at 2:00 and ends at 3:00.

Mike --
You sure are right about the Garden of the Gods. That area is off-limits to cars now as it has been returned to a more natural look that eliminates the roadway and vehicles to improve the aesthetic quality of pics taken from the same spot.
Sid --
I liked the one of the A&W. Man, if that doesn't capture of the essence of "cruisin' the gut" back in the FWL days, I don't know what does: two "Shoeboxes" and two "Lead Sleds," to say nothing of the short-sleeved shirts still rolled up two turns. You have no idea how hard we guys tried for the "cool" look even in Colorado.

Joe, yes, it will never be like this again. I envy you that you lived it, nobody can take that away from you. Funny you mentioned rolled up sleeves, i wore that today, a hot day, the sun melted my well greased pompadour and the sleeves always kept unrolling. It is still not easy to be "cool" Heres one guy who succeeded:

My thoughts were "I wonder how these guys made out in life? Did they go Vietnam or were they too old by then?"

At least there was plenty of witnesses...

By the way, on our first US trip my wife overheard a conversation between a mother and
her teenage daughter, who was looking to buy some clothing. Apparently the daughter
was having trouble making up her mind, her exasperated mother said,
"Come on girl, corral your mind!"

The things you hear in Kentucky...

That car phone in the 55' Bird would have been 6 volt!
Also has added taillights and mirrors.

When? And did it still look like that, like in the pictures?

Newberry's and Woolworth's had lunch counters like this. And as I
remember, they pretty much looked like that until the end. What sticks
out in my memory were the lunch ladies in their uniforms. But yeah,
they looked like that photo.

The thing on the tailfin of the T-Bird is not a tail light, it is the Cone
of Phone antenna !

In the 1950s and early 60s, although the counter was about 3/4 that size in our area.

I see, didn't know its a chain and thought it is the very same shown in the picture.

Another picture for Joe, Iowa 1958:

How many '56 New Yorker convertibles were made? I wouldn't expect very many. What is that black bug looking thing on the back of it? My guess is it's probably an artifact on the original photograph, but it's really odd looking.

I don't think that is anything real.

No problems. I just wish everyone would keep pics down to that size so I can look at them without scrolling!

The thing on the trunk/wing is a leaf, it's autumn (sorry, fall...) there.

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

The counter at Woolworth's and Newberry's stayed largely looking
like that into the 1970's. I never cared for the food, .... really plain
and bland, but the store and fixtures were all very old and cool until
both folded in the early 80's. That photo must be from a very large
store. I do not remember ever seeing a counter so long as that !

Sounds like it might have been safe for me to eat there!

That's the Navajo Bridge over Marble Canyon, which I believe is the third canyon carved by the Colorado River...

It was built in 1929 but became 'substandard' with increasing truck loadings and roadbuilding standards regarding road widths,
so it was replaced in 1995 by a very similar bridge right next to it which met the modern standards. I have some pics, but
there's no Forward Look cars in them!

Maybe 1928? Here's the plaque at the Eastern end of the bridge, and the two bridges side by side with the newer one to the left...

This I recall was reached after coming from Monument Valley, stopping overnight at some little town, then in the morning turning off
the road headed South to enable me to head to the North side of the Grand Canyon. Just the other side of the bridge is the 'Cliff
Dwellers' area, I took a couple of pics of that and then just headed on through.
