Was the ’59 Dodge inspired by the monster from “It Conquered the World”? They’re still angry after all these years. Even in retirement!
Roger Corman’s finest film to date.
That first picture is proof of alien intervention.
That angry look on the ‘59 Dodge… the car looks like it should be chomping on a big cigar… and named Bruto, or Blato, or Brutus, or something…
Or J Jonah Jameson.
Good job there at putting “like with like”. Makes my OCD mind very happy.
Paul. When were you at DVAP? Wish I had known. A lot of good parts for my 60s Thunderbirds and 70 Torino were obtained there. As for the 59 Dodge, to me it looks like a pissed off 58 Chevy.
I wasn’t there. “Cohort” means shots posted to the CC Cohort. These are by Don Kincl, as the line below the first image says.
I would love to have the nose of one of those ’59 doges on my garage wall.
here’s one I did of an Advanced Design Chevy that we put in my wife’s store.
^^ Forgive me… Dodges.
Seeing the ’59 Dodge and the 2020 Hyundai Palisade (posted on here Monday), I’m sensing the return to ’58-’59 Detroit bizarro styling hasn’t played itself out yet.
I wouldn’t mind combining all those Corvairs into one straight bodied and running example! Are those 2nd gens stacked up on the right?
This has been educational – it is the first day of my life I have tried to distinguish the front ends of the 55 and the 56 Dodge. These are 56s. And is that the biggest hood ornament ever put on a car?
The 55’s always reminded me of a ’56 that lightly rear ended another car.
Well off to Pick & Pull but I don’t think I’ll see anything like this is their Oakland yard.
I’ve only been to one junkyard that stacked cars on top of each other and they stopped doing it some time ago, probably 10 years at this point. It was always frustrating getting parts out of MN12 Tbird’s and Cougars on the bottom with their aircraft style doors as the window frame would invariably get held up on the rocker panel of the car above it. I remember tugging and prying between the roof and floor with my breaker bar and being nervous as hell feeling the rocking motion of the car above it. Good times!
I really don’t like tailfins but I really like the proportions of the 57 Plymouths rear end
