    I think 1958. Possibly 1957.

    Stumbled across your blog and have really enjoyed following it. I guess I’m taking your trip vicariously.


  2. Gabin says:

    Straight out of the Bat Cave! Don’t it look like a Toronado, on backwards?
    PS. I really dig that Viking Totem, there’s a certain phallic je ne sais quoi about it ;)

  3. Karen Too says:

    The one pictured is sure to be from the 1950s. Love cars like that one.

  4. Brian says:

    looks like a 1958 ford fairlane. guessing by the cut shape of the body by the back tire and the scalloped trim.. looks to be the original paint job as well.

  5. Leo says:

    I’m reasonably sure that is a 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 four-door hardtop.

  6. Ruth says:

    Agree with Leo. He’s right…..used to ride in these and drive them too!!! Great pic Matt!

  7. Jeff says:

    Note to self: Most use of the word for sure.
    Nice Garden Art I must say.

  8. Steve says:

    Yep, it’s a ’57. My family owned one when I was a kid. Best of luck, Matt!

  9. Robert says:

    Also the title of the my favorite Andrew Dice Clay move.

  11. Mom says:

    I like the peonies still in bloom. They’re long gone in Virginia.

  12. chett from Ohio says:

    My husband’s first car was a 1962 Ford Fairlane 5000 (I think that’s the number) but I’ve never seen one. I wonder how closely it looks to this one. I’ll have to show it to him and see if it looks anything like his. He talks about that car all the time.

    Sadly, that’s probably its place of death. It will be a “one of those days” project for someone and its day will never come.
