Color shots of this vintage are scarce. This photo, by the markings on the back, was printed from a slide, which would fully explain its color richness. But we’re here to discuss old cars, and the people who owned them. Film discussions are for other blogs.
Handwritten on the back of this shot we find “May, 1955”. Unless this man’s name was “May” we know two things — the month and the year this pic was taken. Not one word about the car. If this were my photo, originally, on the back I would have written “1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria, with a V8, wide whites, and wires….. and some dude who insisted on blocking my view of it”.
