The 40s?Thank you for sharing. Those are pretty cool cars. The 40’s cars had the greatest lines and body styles.
You sure about that?
The war years cars are some of the most lame cars because of well the war effort.
30s cars are cool and then by the mid 50s they got cool again.
55 Thunderbird was cool .
The “baby birds “.
Weather permitting, we enjoy going to local car shows. They are generally an afternoon of free entertainment, & now even my daughter likes going to them.Car show today where I live.👍. 300 Cars & Trucks, but these caught my eye.
Interesting history for those split window Corvettes. When they were introduced for the 1963 model year, the public hated them; and dealers had trouble selling them. Some dealers even had the rear divider removed and converted them to single glass rear windows in order to sell them. Other cars were converted by owners who bought them; and decided that the split window was a PITA. The rear window conversion became a very popular aftermarket conversion for some of the cars when they were less than a year old. Chevrolet saw the handwriting on the wall; and discontinued the split window for the 1964 cars.
I saw a darker colored version of this truck bought at the Houston Mecum auction(taped the auction). It went for a good bit over $100K. Young man sitting at the table by himself but he looked pleased as punch while he was signing papers!
