CC Outtakes: A Quick Walk Into the Past

It’s the rainy season in Portland, and I desperately needed to get out of the house and take a walk. I decided to take my camera and hunt for some Curbside Classics in the Hawthorne neighborhood. It was a short walk, maybe 45 minutes. But time wise, I seemed to have been transported back to the sixties, or early seventies.

I spotted two early sixties Fords, including this 1961 Falcon, and a seventies Dodge that when shot in B&W kind bring me back to a simpler, quiet time. For a short while, the problems of the day disappeared. The past isn’t gone. It is still around, in little pockets of warped time. If you look around you can probably find a few where you live.

I’m pretty sure this is a 1960 Ford Fairlane Club Sedan. It looks like a base model, but it’s in amazing original condition for a 60 year old car that looks like it still gets regular use.

This Dodge(?) was parked across the street from the Galaxie. It’s just another old car that seems to live forever in the Northwest. I truly live in the land of plenty.
