A favorite car of mine is this Pontiac Star Chief. I've seen it around town, but have never had the chance to shoot it...until today!

There were alot more cars this year than any other! Since they've removed the nice tree-shaded islands in the center of Water Street, they've got alot more room to display the cars. I do miss those trees, though. What an enormous waste of money...beautify the street and then take everything out! I do like the new stop sign at Water and Pacific...they had put the stop light in when I was a senior in high school. I guess they don't need a light there anymore.

Here are a couple of shots I took a long time ago:

I shot this during the first Eldorado remodel...I don't remember what year this was...It opened as the Royal Casino around 1959, which is what I believe these remnants are from

...and the Rainbow Club...

["Rainbow" has acquired an additional meaning in recent years. . .]

I've never visited Las Vegas (baby) -- but the removal of a stoplight sounds like national news ! As for the trees. . .that's too bad. Why'd they do that, do you suppose. . .?

Anyway, thanks for the swell pix :cheers:

Thanks again ! It's nice to see those two '56 coupes (well, hardtops, really) next to each other: a Ford and a Chevy, in two-tone paint. My family owned a new Ford wagon that year, but not an up-model like these.

Your photos are first-rate. . .

These pics are making me drool!!! Great shots of what to me are some of the finest looking machines ever made! And yep, someday I'm gonna have me one of those '55 or '56 Ford Pickups...with a healthy V-8 under the hood, of course. :D

To think, at one time in our history, a car lot was practically an art gallery.

What a hoot. All kinds of oldies and goodies. The history of postwar American iron will be discussed for centuries to come, on planets beyond our own, I wager. Thanks for the great photos, as usual !

mmmmmm, good

Postby Slim and Gabby » Fri Oct 31, 2008 11:39 am

Hey,
what was that ?58? Chrysler product in red and white at the end there??

Was that a "La Femme" perhaps?

I have been dying to see one of those in the flesh. Apparently, in addition to the swivel seats, pushbuttons and astro-dash, they offered a raincoat, umbrella and ladies hat to match the upholstery. I've yearned to do the same for a car someday.

Soooo cool.
Thx!

Thanks! The 1959 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer Super D-500 is a pretty rare car. This one has the original door panels and original upholstry!

59 Lancer....yess!

Postby Slim and Gabby » Sat Nov 01, 2008 12:46 pm

Ok, the Lancer shows up in LOTS of suave guy P.I. shows.

Didn't Peter Gunn have one?

Della SHOULD have had one, don'tcha think?


What the best-dressed PI is driving for '59.
