Last Call- The Fin is In


While ‘fin’ may mean end in French, it was the Americans that embraced that styling element on the ends of their cars back in the ’50s. Here’s the driver of a 1959 Chevy Impala saying fin to an also finned ’57. This image comes from a cool site called Wheels are Everytinng, and the wallpaper sized edition may be found here.

      I will someday own a '59 convertible…triple white. If I win Powerball, it'll be an Eldo.

    I drove through Newport, OR, over the weekend and found that this Australian Ford is still available:
    It's on the lot of Newport Marine & RV Service. If anyone's interested, they can provide the contact information of the seller; the asking price is $5000 OBO.
