Happy SUNday! – Classic Cars

A couple of classic cars taken in June 1958 somewhere in Connecticut (maybe Hartford).

My wife’s Uncle Bill’s car – a Ford? Reader Jim Grey says it’s a Dodge and I agree. Maybe a 1958 Royal Lancer? The paint scheme is pretty gaudy – a “saddle” two-tone, which had the roof and all of the body below the belt-line trim as one color and the body above the belt-line trim as another.
My father-in-law’s Frank’s car – a Chevy Impala.

They built them big and heavy back then and to think they were considered coupes (two doors). Dual antennas too! Have a great day!

    1. Thanks! The emulsion side (the side with the Kodak logo) is the “back” side of the slide. So, no right-side drive although I got used to it when I lived in Japan and kind of enjoyed shifting with my left hand and steering with my right.
