Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

61 Dodge Lancer… in the shop.

This vehicle is close to my heart because it is from the time my grandfather designed cars for Chrysler. The ’61 Valiant (spare tire designed in on the trunk lid) was his baby. Although the Lancer and the Valiant had similarities — this is a Lancer. And the mechanic in this photo isn’t too far under the car so I’m guessing the problem here was a leaky radiator or a loose license plate — but one thing for sure, we’ll never know.
