Took my new ride out for a spin and snapped some pictures. Still have a few bugs to work out with the carb. Tank was empty, so it should sit a bit lower with a full tank.

Beautiful car.

The '59 Dodge is one of the best looking cars ever.

I would love to have one.

Thanks for the nice comments. Was searching on an off for about 10 years for one of these cars. I really liked how futuristic these cars looked. Would have been cool to live during this time.

Here’s some cool history.

Born in 1951, I did live during that time, and it was indeed pretty dang cool.
Always some fear about Russian nukes, but otherwise a great and simple and optimistic era.
I'd go back in a heartbeat !

Thanks for the nice comments. Plan on doing a lot of cruising this summer. Got to show the public how cool old cars were back in the mid century atomic era.

Here’s some cool history.

When seeing pics like this it’s hard for any person to understand how many cars are made in a year! This was a drop in a buckets, 133, can you imagine 100,000 stretched end to end?! In 1964 Ford sold 4 million Mustangs !!!

I looked this show up on Facebook. Looks like a good time. I already have some prior plans on that weekend, but you can bet I will try and get up there next year.
