  • #10275 - Even though this was late 1950s (I see two 1956 models), I don't see any foreign cars (or trucks, SUVs, vans).

      I noticed that as well. By 1956 there should be at last ONE Volkswagen in a big parking lot like the one above. Come to think of it, I don't see a VW in the 1964 photo in post #10263 either. The Beetle was leader in import sales in North America the 1950's & '60's.

      • Well, I would have a hard time choosing between the Starliner and the De Soto!

          You are probably referring to what looks like a Starlight to me (but I do have a small screen).

            You're right. I looked at it too quickly the first time and did not notice the B pillar.
            Nice day to all.

            • Check out the hood fit around the grille on that early '53 Starlight coupe! And I don't think its unlatched, either.

                I noticed that too. Well, let's be optimistic and assume that the hood latch is in need of adjustment...

                  The Starlight was at least three years old then, so the fit does not look that unusual to me.

                    • My apologies for cluttering up this thread, but I tried to send this info via "Private Message", and it just won't work.

                      All, (but especially Cus63, Dave Pink, & Harryhawk, & any others from down under),

                      Thanks for the kind words about my son Alek's 2009 visit to AU, and his trip to the Ballarat meet.
                      FYI, his (in my humble opinion pretty darn interesting) travel blog covering his entire time in AU can be found at:

                      The blog begins with his June exit, and goes backwards to his February arrival, with the Ballarat Meet covered in the April section.

                      Hope you find it interesting,

                                I am sure I have seen the very occasional Studebaker on the "Doc Blake" TV series that is supposed to take place in Ballarat in the '50's.
