    My question is why you called a Starliner a bubble top?[/QUOTE]
    To screw with some hambers... nothing else.. but in 1961 nothing was a "bubble" top no matter what goggle says.

    I don't know for sure where it started but I never heard the term "bubbletop" used until the Wall Street musclecar whores started speculating on the value of 62 409 BelAir hardtops.

    Here's my take on this so-called "bubbletop" controversy In 1961, there were 2-door sedans and 2-door hard-tops. In 1962, in the Chevy line-up there were 2-door sedans and two different 2-door hard-tops, the Impala version and the Bel Air version. The Bel Air version became known as the "bubbletop" hard-top because of it's more rounded 1961 top. To my knowledge, this was the first time that any automotive series had two different hard top models in the same series, and only Chevy had that distinction and it only happened in 1962...

    Its just like all the guys calling all the 1955-57 Chevy pickups "apaches" now. They didn't start those until 1958. The terminologies we grew up with are getting all mixed up now.

    I would like to see a picture of a :Wall street musclecar whore please. Just so I can ID one if I see her:confused:
     
  19. Of course that's correct, George. But today, anything can be a bubbletop, I guess...60 Venturas, 59 -61 Impalas, Caddys, etc. Look for more soon...61 Plymouths and Dodges, Corvairs, Karmann Ghias..How about Borgward Isabellas? The term won't mean much by the time it's all said and done, and the 62 b.t. history will be washed away.:(
    Sorry about getting away from the pictures, momentarily.

    Some of the 61 Impala's had the same BIG back window (bubble top !) as some...of the 62's.
    I had one for 5 or 6 years. I put a (sorta) big inch 409 under the hood.
