You sweet thing ! ! !
Anybody get the significance of that sentence?
You sat in your car, maybe getting your oil checked and windshield washed for a dollars worth of gas.
THAT was fact, not fiction.
You never know, the guy with the letterman's sweater, penny loafers and pants up under his armpits might be loaded with cash and hung like a horse.
My dad would not go to any other station other than one in Buena Park Cal because of the guy checking oil, tire pressure, and doing the front and rear windows... and gave Blue Chip stamps to boot.
Looks like a '59 Mercury Monteray, but I have never seen 0ne as a Ranchero Probably made from a '59 Ford Ranchero as I think the body lines match up
Yea right when did any attendant EVER do all that for a car full of 6 teenagers? ALL he did was open the cap and pump gas and was probably making 75 cents an hour. I know because I was a pump jockey.
Interesting car. Looks like a '57 Mercury Commuter wagon with the roof cut off. Same bumper and tailgate.
How about some little race cars.
That looks like a rare 1933 or ‘34 Continental Beacon coming down the street. Production was extremely low, under 5000 for the two years combined.
Seatbelts??? We don't need no stinking seat belts!!!
That is charlie Musselman at Langhorne in 1957. He only broke an arm.
I want to be thrown in the clear..
58 Mercury wagon
...so that I can be run over by the guys that are running behind me...
There it Be !
Wow ! 1957 Mercury Commuter 2-door
Did the guy on the right get any chicks?

Sure looks like His left arm is already broken here in the air!
He had done a few barrel rolls before the ejection. His shoes came off too.
The accident was featured in Life magazine. Walter Churnical(sp?} took it. first machine gun photography. Had crash from start to finish.
Both the subject photo and the one you posted are '57 Mercurys.
