Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

Toad

DSCN3590

We’ve all seen the coming of age, George Lucas movie “American Graffiti” so I probably won’t have to tell you about Charles Martin Smith’s role as “The Toad”. This photo here is NOT one of Mr. Smith, but it is a real-life example of what George Lucas probably envisioned when he cast that role back in 1973. Ladies and gentlemen may I present to you the real “Toad” standing with his 1957  Chevrolet Bel Air sedan.
