Contrast

There was a lot of talk yesterday on Facebook about what year this car was. I think it was decided its a 56 Chevy.



Brian has a nice car on his site, thats not quite as old. Which one would you take?

Jim, I'd take this car over that car.

Hope you have a grand time at the casino! Mama and I plan to go to a different one, Chinook Winds over in Lincoln City, on April 25. Not a free room, drat it! We'll enjoy an Elvis impersonator contest that afternoon, though, and spend the night in a reduced-rate, ocean-view room. One of the guys will stay here with Duncan.

Jim, I didn't want to be rude to Brian, but I think that this car would be lots more fun to have but, on second thought...

Be still, my heart! My third car was a 1955 Chevy 4-dr hardtop, blue with white top. Ah...those were the days, my friend!

They don't make them like that, anymore.

B SQUARED doesn't want either of them. He'll be buried in his Yugo...

It is a '56 Chevy Bel-Air.
Rather than the '56 Chevy or Brian's Porsche - or even B SQUARED's Yugo, here's «Louis'» dream car.

Re Brian's 4 door Porsche: about 30 years ago, Porsche built a prototype 4 door off the 911 platform. The design, at best, was awkward and it never went into production.

Porsche does a lot of engineering work for other auto companies. In the early 1950s, they built a prototype 4 door V8 for Studebaker that didn't make it to production.
