I miss 60's girls!!! LOL
Funny, but like a lot of guys my age (63) when I look at pics like this, I don't see "old cars", I just see "cars". It doesn't register that this pic was taken 49 years ago.
Guess that's old age!!! LOL
I had a silver 66 Cuda like the one on the right. Wish I still had it!
I read that Sears is on the ropes! Too bad, a part of Americana lost. Monkey Wards is long gone.
I Should've put this one up for Mothers Day ♥ My Mom @ Belmont Speedway circa 1955 .
Any idea on the car. It looks familiar but not enough to venture a guess.
My uncle bought a '65 cuda new, like the one on the left. (it looks like it has 65 tail lights) Formula S, 4 speed, silver with a black stripe. His mom drove it once a week while he was in 'nam to keep everything happy. Best part, he still has the car today.
