My Favorite Cars From The 1950s – Part 2

As indicated in my initial post on this subject titled My Favorite Cars From The 1920s I remarked that there weren’t many beautiful cars until the 1930s and they produced some absolutely gorgeous automobiles in that era.

American Graffiti Johnny B. Goode Video

The is one of my all-time favorite movies along with one of my favorite songs from my youth.

This movie accurately depicts my high school years in the Los Angeles suburbs. What a time it was. These are the two cars I drove at the time…….and the second one was what we called a “sleeper” because it looked stock but had a powerful engine under the hood.

Now for the video. Enjoy!
