To think that was 20 years before I lived there, and it's been 40 years since I left.
Time sure flies.
Is that a slide? Has that kinda 3D look that slides have.
There are some very cool '54 Fords there too! Dave
It always amazes me.....they wanted 30-40 year old cars in their parades at this time because the cars were cool.
It'd be like us having a 1987 Ford Taurus in a parade today.
I have owned 10 Ford Taurus Station wagons (okay, two were Mercurys) Great cars, but the basic styling changed little from 1985 to 2005. I have a nice 2004 Tuarus now and a 1999 Mercury, both wagons. It would be strange to see one in a parade. I bought my 1910 Touring when it was 36 years old. When I drove it or parked it people would come to look at it. Who bothers to rush up to look at a 1982 Ford now a days?
Clear sky's......only Leaded gas was available and before smog controls became a requirement for vehicles.
Those were the good old days that I remember
