Now there was a “car.” Tom Jim Taylor 21 May 2017 at 2:52 pm 3 years ago The Edsel wasn’t a car, Tom. It was the Titanic on tires — so heavy, so unwieldy, that it got lower (to the ground, not in the water) every year as its springs sagged.

Isabel Gibson 21 May 2017 at 7:03 pm 3 years ago Tom – I’ll let Jim’s response (which sounds like the voice of bitter experience) speak to this. barbara carlson 21 May 2017 at 7:42 pm 3 years ago Great photos, Isabel. Love those old, heavy, hefty vehicles. I had an Italian-made car (bought in winter while it was under 8″ of snow — never test drove it!). It was a tank to drive. It pulled so hard to the left, the passenger had to help me keep it going straight. I managed to trade it in for my first brand new car — a Ford Tempo — which (when it finally died) I just walked away from; its hood rusted shut. I left it in a large parking lot on St. Laurent Blvd. I was so young and foolish. Isabel Gibson 22 May 2017 at 12:45 am 3 years ago Barbara – I can just see you and your passenger leaning right, putting your backs into it to keep it going straight. Crazy! Tom Watson 22 May 2017 at 6:52 am 3 years ago I agree with Jim Taylor. I had my tongue a long way in my cheek when I made my comment. I love the “Titanic on wheels” description. Tom Isabel Gibson 22 May 2017 at 10:01 am 3 years ago Tom – They’re all just cars to me . . . I’m interested only insofar as they look photogenic. Even for that I had to get in pretty close – its overall shape was not lovely. Corrine Summers 23 May 2017 at 5:48 pm 3 years ago Loved the VW. My 1st new car in 1957. Deluxe model/leather seats – $1865.00!!! Isabel Gibson 23 May 2017 at 8:05 pm 3 years ago Corrine – If that was a VW Beetle, here are images. I mean, of course there would be images of the 1957 VW . . . Comments are closed.
