What a great view these two have, of Mt. Hood in the distance.
I’ve been going back through Don Kincl’s (Ralf K) Flickr Photostream, and there’s so much good stuff yet to share with you here. Don has been a Cohort stalwart, and he did the final art work on our recent logo re-do. And I had the pleasure of meeting him in Portland a few years back.
Here’s their faces, smiling at the view:
Don’t they look happy? I would too, if I was put out to pasture there.
The lead photo looks like two cars at a drive-in about to watch a Paramount movie.
Hahaha, I love it!
I had a ’57 150…loved it. A day without Tri-Fives is a day without sunshine. Happy Labor Day weekend!
Another one of those instances where there is no visible reason why two fairly decent cars were junked? Abandoned?
But then again, I have a 12 year old car in fairly good condition, (I wouldn’t hesitate to undertake a 5,000 mile trip in it) but I do hesitate to spend $1,000 to have the heater core replaced. Do I continue to pour money into an old, higher mileage car, or scrap it over a $50 part? Living in Florida, it’s not hugely essential. However, it does mean my holiday trip to see the family up north will require different transportation.
My father had a 55 Ford Country Sedan and 1 uncle had 2 1955 Ranch Wagons, so I am quite fond of mid-late 50s Fords.
To this Rust-Belter, the Ford looks like a caught-on-the street shot, circa 1961-62. How much work/$$ could it possibly need to be roadworthy, he asks….?
Fantastic pic and two of my favorite 1950s cars. The Chevy is a six too. Note the lack of the V on the hood and the older style rear trunk emblem. I actually saw well weathered ’57 Chevy 150 six cylinder last month, although it was a 4-door.

These cars would be quite at home in the cartoon Gravity Falls.
Beats sitting on the porch…..
