When there were far fewer people around, far fewer laws and regulations, when the legal speed limit was 75 mph, when gas was cheap, when driving was a pleasure, if you owned a hot machine you could point the grill down an empty road and go!

Portland Pictorial: The 1950s

Rods & Customs, Showcars & Dragsters and a bunch of reworked daily drivers, the kinds of cars you saw on the street in the 1950s, with skirts, duals, lake pipes, Hollywood hub caps, DeSoto bumpers, nosed and decked, frenched, long shackles, engine swaps and even a couple chopped tops. Remember how it was with an author who lived it. Why get your information second or third hand? Informed captions, written before everything about those halcyon days is forgotten!.
