Cohort Pic(k) of the Day: The Falcon Takes Flight Over Bellingham

This Falcon has taken flight in Bellingham, WA, as documented by Mike Hayes. It’s an interesting choice for a retro-diner-burger joint, and one would more likely expect something more like a ’57 Chevy or such.  A 1964 Falcon stripper two door sedan? Well, it’s about as light as an American car gets; lots of empty calories went into making it.

But then the Falcon became the hipster car of choice, back when that was a big thing (mostly over now). Is this an attempt to meld classic with hipster?

Maybe I’m reading too much into this; more likely the Falcon was just the cheapest car from the sixties that they could find. Some things never change.
