                    Almost 60 years ago, the sleek, low 1953 Studebaker Starliner in the above ski lodge parking lot, embarrassing the "sporty" 1954 Chevrolet Bel-Air convertible and 1953 Chevrolet Bel-Air hardtop immediately to the left of it, represented the "New European Look."

                    And indeed it did...quite handsomely so, as a matter of fact.

                    Now, 59 years(!) later, we are told in this morning's Indianapolis Star, that the automobile below represents the same thing.

                    Is it just me, or have the Europeans been losing ground, style-wise? <GGG> BP

                    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                        No GM cars...that's what I call a good start!
                        But isn't that a Chevy in the lower right corner?

                        • Rambler I think

                          • Notice how the 53-54 coupes are the lowest cars in the pics.

                            • In the McDonald's pic, three of the five visible cars were Ramblers. This must have been the McDonald's in Kenosha, WI!

                              Two of the five were the '60/61 model year Rambler.

                              To the right (directly in front of the restaurant) is a '63 I believe. I think that is the first good-looking Rambler (IMHO)!

                                I think it's a 64...different tail lights than 63.
