Vintage Photo Friday - 1955
|1955. Pan Pacific Auditorium, Los Angeles|
I came across these FABULOUS photos on the Los Angeles Public Library website. The photos were originally from the Herald-Examiner, taken at the 1955 Los Angeles Auto Show at the Pan Pacific Auditorium. The original caption for the photo above reads, "Ever want to see how the inside of a dream car looks? Here's an X-ray view of the 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air V-8 sedan. Eleanor Howard and Martha Drake, Chevrolet hostesses, add beauty to the cut-away mechanical presentation of the car."

I love the cut-away versions of the 1955 Chevy. I just wish those pesky models weren't in the way so I could really see the inner workings of the car!
Mr. Larry has a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air sitting in our backyard. It runs, but is really used as a storage unit.

I have great hopes of one day being able to have a presentable backyard....one car at a time.
