Street Was Fun in '51

At mid-century, to own a good street roadster made sense. They were fun, swift, economical, handled well, and they were noticed! In those simpler days, when there were far fewer people around, far fewer laws and regulations, when the legal speed limit was 75 mph, when gas was cheap, when driving was a pleasure, if you owned a hot machine you could point the grill down an empty road and go! To the beach, the mountains, or just to the Tik Tok, Jim Dandy's, Flanagan's, to your favorite drive-in where you could make a cherry coke last all night while listened to Patti Page and Perry Como and watched the parade of cars that, in memory, seems endless.
