Sleek, glossy and Lipstick Red










Visit MARY/THETEACH for more Ruby Tuesday offerings.


On Saturday I came across this beautiful, glossy red...
















































This beauty is a 1958 Chevrolet Biscayne and I'm sure there's people in the know who would be able to fill us in on the features of this car. I'm not that person! I do know this car was built in an America that was riding on an economic high and nothing was too big or ostentatious when it came to motor vehicles. Petrol must have been darn cheap...






Have the best Ruby Tuesday everyone! :)



Love,

Eaton.

  1. Actually the Biscayne was introduced as an "entry-level" model, priced for the working class family guy. It wasn't until years later that it became a "classic". And you're right, petrol at that time was less than $0.25/gal. I can remember seeing gas that cheap, but by the time I could drive it was closer to $0.50. But you have to adjust that for inflation as well as the rise in the price of crude. When this baby was built, everything was cheaper.

    Great catch, and marvelous photos!

  6. Hi, Eaton,
    a red beauty, styled to capture other beauties.
    A blond ponytail trap, I'd say.
    I hardly remember those lollipops days.
    Red, seducing, cruising flakes.
    Wonderful.

  8. The 1958 Chevrolet looks like a Cadillac of the same era up front. I don't know if that was built in Australia or if it was imported from the USA and converted to right-hand drive. But this car is customized beautifully!

    PS: I have noted online that there are lots of old American car clubs in OZ.

  13. Great shots of the chevy...love the red. It was always funny how the majority of people back then were either Chevy or Ford drivers.
    Forget it now, imports pretty much rule. I was always partial to Fords and I'm more a blue/silver/black car person! :)
