Though I was only 10 or 11, I remember the 50’s as an amazing time when you could look at a car and know the year, the make and model. As I recall, starting in 1957, the rear was the car’s signature. We had a white ’57 Chevy. The folks across the street had a ’57 Chrysler Imperial in coral pink. Another neighbor had a black and white Ford. The kind where the hard top folded into the truck, and it was an instant convertible. Every car was bigger than the next. I was a visual kid. The memory stayed with me.

    Wow what a great scale model!

    I couldn’t agree more about the 50’s cars being different every year, and you could tell the model and year. I remember them showing up on the transports about September, next year’s models, and they were all covered up, and the dealer would butcher paper his showroom windows. High camp now.
