    Ahhhh, what a relief to see the "C" turned as in the alphabet. THANKS, guys! :) A more subtle clue is that, now, the Chrysler & GM are no long right-hand drive! :D

    Okay, we got a good look at '58 New Yorker trim. The '57 ad below, I think, shows how much
    difference designers' trim decisions can make in the overall visual impact of a model that's
    otherwise the same. The look of the '57 New Yorker is just as different from the '58 as the '57
    DeSoto was from its '58 counterpart, IMO. The '57s for SO many makes just really hit a zenith,
    IMO.

    Hey, other HAMBers flopped that Rock Hudson image and cleared that up.:) Wish we could put a '29 Buick and '34 Chrysler bumper side by side and clear that up too, but I think everybody just got tired!:p

    As for Father's Day over there, heck, your HAMB buddies are with you! Bend an elbow for me, one for Doc, one for Ron, one for YellerSpirit, one for LowCat, one for NovaDude, one for . . . OOOh! :eek: You'll feel no pain when you hit the hay tonight! :D

    That Ford must have had the Lincon Mercury team also doing the Lincon Mk II. Look at the similarities . scrubba

    This is the version that was gussied up to make it more closely resemble a conventional automobile and stimulate public interest. The version actually evaluated was much plainer and can still be seen today at the Transportation Museum at Ft. Eustis, VA.

    Here are videos:

    The gussied up one:
