Growing up watching the Lawrence Welk show, I never would have associated it with "Top tunes and new talent". Apparently at one point it was?

Lawrence Welk ....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDGFXgJpMvI

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCqJslURFVY

As a kid, Lawrence Welk was the pinnacle of boring. His stiff, awkward,
and hopelessly corny style was nauseating. My Grandmother imposed a
death warrant for anyone who might speak a peep while Lawrence Welk
was on. But I loved my Grandma and would sit there beside her as she
thrilled over the fountain of dull that was pouring forth.

Then the whole scene of Googie and Forward Look faded away and ol'
Larry toddled on as a weird anachronism to a different time. My appreciation
for the time was piqued with the "weightless" architecture and the "flying"
cars with wings, but began to sift down deeper the sparkly sheer curtains
like Mr. Welk stands in front of when he does the introduction to Calcutta.

Old Larry actually was pretty hip, in spite of being the definition of "square".
Like our finned cars, most people just too lazy or stupid to know a good
thing when they see it.

You know it Doc....I went through EXACTLY the same thing with my Grandmother. Endless monotone from Herr Welk and the sweet looks and tones of the Lennon sisters backed by Myron Florins (sic) accordion.....ah....those were the days....

Just read up on the switch from left-hand to right-hand traffic in Sweden, the right-hand "general" Lars Skiöld used this Chrysler limosine as his functional service car.
I'm puzzled by this car - it seems to have the Windsor short front fenders, but it as the sill moldings, wheel well moldings and chevrons from a New Yorker.

The extension of the body was probably done by some European body firm and not Chrysler Corporation. Undoubtedly thought the New Yorker trim pieces would add a bit of class to a LWB Windsor sedan.

Also note the small vent windows in the rear side windows.

That 60 Chrysler could be stretched in Heinel Karosserifabrik in Malmo, Sweden. The bodywork firm what made also couple of Chrysler New Yorker limos for Finland president Kekkonen in the 60s / early 70s.

I guess this is cheating: 1954 Plymouth Belmont Concept Car:

"Less sporty looking than a Corvette thanks to its 114-inch wheelbase, the Plymouth Belmont concept still had quite a bit in common with Chevrolet’s sports car. Both were true roadsters that lacked exterior door handles, and both used bodies made from lightweight fiberglass. The Belmont, however, brought V-8 power from its inception. With long, flowing lines, the car just beg to be driven. While the large chrome headlight bezels are perhaps a little too overbearing, the styling is otherwise simple and clean. Had it gone into production in 1955, the Belmont might have proven a worthy adversary for the Corvette and Thunderbird."

The Belmont's fibreglass body was built by Briggs and used Dodge's 114" wheelbase V8 chassis with Dodge's 140-bhp hemi V8. The engine was mated to Plymouth's Hy-Drive 3-speed no-automatic transmission. You had three speeds forward and one reverse, but you needed the clutch to shift into and out of all gears.

Wow ! That Spokane Street photo is EXACTLY how it looked when
I was a kid !

My great grandparents lived about two miles from there. If one were
to spin on there heels and face west, the road hit the steep hill about
a quarter mile on and divided. Going left, the road headed up the draw
to Fauntleroy, going right, the road went up and over the hill to Alki.

At the base of the hill, just over the photographer's right shoulder
was the massive Bethlehem Steel mill. This photo is an awesome
example of why I no longer live in Seattle .... 500 days a year of dark
and grey, and ridiculous traffic. Today, this area is buried under a freeway.

Up the draw to the south from right about where this photo was taken,
a street rook off for White Center. About a mile up that road we found
a number of notable cars, including a yard FULL of 1958 Buicks and a
59 Plymouth Sport Fury ragtop.

Time for a wash


Ahhh, what a wonderful picture, pure 50s! Love the paint combo of the Dodge!!!

"Polishing the family car and dreaming of saturday night", an American ritual (quote from a book I bought in the early 80s about the american automobile).

I love America for my reasons, these wonderful automobiles, the freedom on wheels, with the american V8, that made it possible for everyone to enjoy that freedom, is one of them.

And don't forget the whitewalls sported by every car in the pic!

Not to mention the possibility that the coupe across the road might have a Hemi in it...

There's a '57 or '58 in that Columbus shot too...

These pics make a great travelogue.

Lads --
A neat ram Belvie possibly in the pit area of a drag strip or at least set up for racing.
Beyond the "Sky-High" rear window and the Aero Steering Wheel, there are two things of note: check the "cheater slicks" so this might be later than 1960, plus the roofline of the car behind suggests a later model. I don't recall cheater slicks as being legal in the stock classes then. Also, for the guys that keep insisting wire wheels were "in" back then, just look at those chrome wheels. We old fudds from the era left the wires to the Hollywood blonds in T-Birds and the bald heads in their Buick "deuce-and-a-quarters," but never (repeat, NEVER!) put something that was no longer "cool" on a high-torquing MoPar with drag racing in mind.
Very neat pic indeed.

The wagon is a 1960 Mercury while the car to the left of it is a 1960 Lincoln Continental Mark V. The centre section of the rear window rolls down (electrically, of course). The last year of the Lincoln tanks. (131" wheelbase unibody). Lincoln, the biggest Ford product of 1960, and to the left of the Lincoln is the smallest - the Falcon. Looks like a 1959 Cadillac to the left of the Falcon.

For the Mopars, a nice 1957 Belvedere hardtop without Sportone and a 1960 Plymouth Savoy Fleet sedan - no side trim and no trim around the rear window.
