I was thinking the same....like a more worldly vibe in the body language than what what we had in the 60's.

When I was around 12 or 13 ( couple centuries ago) I had a "minimalist" bike that I had removed everything related to brakes, fenders, and so on. I used to jam my shoe between the frame and rear wheel for braking. In a summer I wore down 2 rear tires and had a nice slot on my left tennis sole. The greatest gig was to arrive at full speed, jam the rear wheel and came to a screeching halt, the longer and louder the better. Ah. the good old days!!.

I'm sure I'd look like a dork I regularly do an hour street/trail ride on my old rigid street bike in my normal attire, even on epic cross country rides it's never occurred to me I needed spandex and I resent paying for someone else's advertising.

I believe that is Charles Stobar Working on the 1958 Thunderbird JR body mold. Charles worked for Ford styling and made these molds prior to the introduction of the new model year Thunderbird, Mercury and in 65 Mustang cars so they could be used by the dealerships in opening day festivities. Here is the same mold in an earlier stage of the process in a 1959 Ford Times magazine article.

I own that mold!

Thank You Mart. That will take a while to get through. Here's a few favorites from the Daily Herald photos. Imagine me liking the first one.
