    "What year is that Rambler?"
    The Rambler looks like about a '64, the first boxy American, but there is a '55? hiding behind it.

    I love the '59 Final Line (7531) and '60-'61 Hamilton Plant Pic. (7529) for some reason there is a Mix of years, maybe the last of the '60's and the First of the '61's.

    • I should have worded that differently "What year is your Rambler?" (as in what stupid questions have you been asked at a car show?)

          That photos of the brand new '61's does look like a dealer's 'drive-away' promotion of sorts.

            • Don't you recognize that car, Joe?
              Geisler Banks & Kehoe ran that car for decades.
              IIRC, it is in the Peterson Museum now...

                      • #7544 is a very early shot of Pomona Dragstrip, basically built from scratch at L.A. County Fairgrounds.

                          Looks like they're breaking in some brand new asphalt.

                            Yes, this was a graveled lot at the fairgrounds, so when they got permission to make a drag strip they had to pave it.
