Here is a little fun refresher for your memory for those of you who may be too busy to remember  the good times

Look at it twice  ,one to listen see the songs and one to read all the little red signs...

Dont like to admit it but I am old enough to remember the fad in the 50's when guys did wear tap heels...as daily wear.  They made cool noises and prevented your shoe sole from wearing out so fast. I guess they made cool noises dancing too.  But I will always remember the sound of someone wearing those walking  down a long dimly lit high school hallway that was all tile and plaster.  What a cool sound. Oh, the girls liked it too.  And if you had a shiny convertible to go with it, like a Chevy BelAire...in turquoise and white....you had it made.

My best buddy in High School had a Chevy  convertible  exactly like that one.  His older brother had originally purchased it.
But....it was, by the time I was in High School, 1961 and VW's were by that time ....the only thing to have. Bob Dylan ,the Kingston trio and Peter, Paul and Mary!  No more.." be bop shu do wap" and weejun loafers.

I have to admit I was just ahead of that Chevy  mine was a Golden Anniversary.. Ford convertible..sweet car, flat top V8  engine  with auto trans..... very cool and great fun....got  creamed by a snow plow  and replaced it with a white 1957 Buick convertible ( the kind with the huge chrome"tits" )  all chrome and tail fins...had real wire wheels..red leather seats....spent a whole year in  Biloxi Miss.  at a school there and  never put the top up...  long ago but great memories....I will try to find a picture....  also remember the "white bucks  and the blue suede shoes"...had to have both...

That was fun ... I saw the Statler Brothers years ago when there was still an Opryland theme park.

I confess that I had a ducktail. My first step father smoked Lucky Strikes. I used to read the road signs as we drove to Grandmothers farm. Mom had a red '57 Chevy with fender skirts.

Yup , thanks Mark  it was just like that convertible with the red upholstery...fun car...a real attention getter...cant remember how many times people asked me to sell them the wire wheels..even the spare was wire...... that was when cars had full size ( real spares ) tires and wheels as a spare.....   cruised that car up and down the beach at Biloxi , Miss. for a year attracted many fun people..... when I moved to Las Vegas  I was inundated with offers to buy it..finally relented and sold to a Black Jack dealer  who offered me $1000  more than I paid for it two years before......  fun times

Wow Mark!
   Thanks for the pictures! The back '58 Limited Convertible is awesome.... Those things were the ultimate Rhinestone Cowboy. I think the '58 Buicks were the only car that actually had a seperate name for the grille, for god's sake. They called it the Fashion-Aire Dynastar Grille. I am not making this up!! I read an old road test of the '58 Limited, and the tester said it handled like " a fat woman in a slippery bathtub". Not makin' that one up either. Thanks again for the pics....

The only thing I can do straight is shoot..
