Looks like a '53 or '54 behind the green wagon also!

A 1958 Ford wagon is something I haven't seen in a long time.

I know a few get bugged by lots of pictures, but I love them- especially shots from the 50s and 60s. Thanks for sharing it!

Got any more??

I love these 'day in the life' color photos of the '50's and '60's--thanks for posting them!

That blue '61 Ford in the background of the picture, is that exact metallic blue I was trying to describe liking on '61 Starliners in the 'Starliner' post on Stove Huggers!

But today it is someone's treasure. Great to see these pictures as they bring fond memories.

Not one SUV in sight, and only 2 or 3 light trucks!!

I wonder if that white '61 Cruiser survived....[?]

I notice they are parked in front of Sears and there's a tag on the windshield. Maybe they are going into the Sears Service Center for service?

There's a Lark like that here that is "just another car". The owner doesn't have any plans to restore it, he just repairs as necessary and his daughter keeps driving it to school and work and life.

And no required front license plate for the ultra modern Laser speed detector to bounce off of.

;) And probably no 1 hour guarantee either.....:D we will get to it when we get to it. [}:)].




(yes I'm aware there are still states that don't require front plates, but more than not do)

Two Studebakers in one parking lot back then! Must have been an early meeting of the club. [:o)] Not many Studebakers around here in those days.
I just realized that the Stude is one of the newest cars in the picture.

It looks like something from my childhood.

I agree with Doug, I love the Ford especially since it's a 2 door.
We had a '57 from 63-65. Happy days...


I don't think anyone has said where the photo was taken.
I'll guess Arizona, no front plates plus the clear sky and mountains in the background. Besides, I sort of recall a two-part Sears there at a mall in the north (or northwest) side of Phoenix.

This picture must be a fake. I don't see any foreign made cars! Impossible! ;)

The newest cars I am able to see in the pic, are all '61's. The Lark, the blue '61 Ford, a white '61 Ford to the right in the background, and a light-colored (maybe white) '61 Chevy wagon.
