1955 Thunderbird Fender Bender

I can’t say I blame her for being upset and given the way the police officer is talking to her it looks like it may have been her fault. I’ve never seen these wheels covers on a 55 Bird. I wonder if these were dealer installed. The Photos were taken in June of 1958 in Los Angeles. Does anyone know the location?

1958 Country Sedan: Destination Disneyland

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

When I look at this photo I can’t help but to think of National Lampoons “Vacation” when the Griswald family arrived at Wally World after a cross country trip only to find an empty parking lot and the entrance closed. This family had better luck than the Griswalds, but I’m sure like most families, their vacation adventure was filled with fighting siblings, car sickness and unforeseen obstacles along the way, but in the end it was all worth it. By the time the Country Sedan pulled up to Disneyland all was forgiven. They had reached their destination and Pops only had to pay a quarter for parking.
