I remember this before it was a museum piece. Be it a hot date or a family night out, the big old cars of yesteryear are very desirable today. I’ve had fun in the front and back seats.
In the late 1950’s drive-in theaters were all the rage. You could pile a bunch of folks in one of these gas guzzlers.
And the trunk held a small elephant. My mom and dad would travel from NC to FLA in about two days. We’d stop in GA if dad was really tired. Some trips we made it in one day. Most of the time I had the backseat to myself. I had 3 brothers but they are much older than me. These trips are some of the best memories.
I would pack a suitcase just for my Barbie stuff. Seat belts were not used and it could be a huge place to play. I had Midge, Skipper, Ken, and lots of clothes for all of them. My grandmother taught me to sew and my dolls were adorned with all kinds of outfits.
Do you have memories of the bygone days when girls on roller skates delivered food to a tray on your window? I do ;). The pictures today are from our day trip to Old Salem, NC. It was community day and we saw some very cool old cars on display.
