    My thoughts exactly. But that would make her over 80 now.

    edit: Just found that image on the photographer's site. It is her, taken in 1978. Looking closer, the gas pump is not 50s era.

    The Blondie Buick pic got me searching for more. Found a topless one, no Buick, sorry.
    Here's a pair of Rivs to re-align.
    This would be be a hell of a thread to get deleted or locked.
    Many would agree with me on that one point.

    I'd hate to see this thread shut down or people banned due to hot headed name calling. Chill, people, it's all just for fun. I love the old pics. I was wondering why someone blacked out what looked like a vw bus, I too, saw the Model A.
    There's nothing here worth falling out over.

    Looks like the 1965 Buick Special we had when I was a kid. I remember those gas prices also. It once hit 28.5c in about 1971 at the Co-op station I was working at.

    I think I can help with this problem:
    Flivver was a horse and he was driving cars - so the car was called "A Flivver car" - short form "A Flivver".
    Hope I could solve this confusion. Now I think everything is clear.

    You need to write to GOGGLE. They say it is a car or an airplane that Henry Ford tried to build.
