Still a lot nicer looking than half the crap out there these days.

This thing had a 6 cylinder engine. and funny looking rear fenders. The next year had a V8 and flat sides.
You're right johnny, the cars get better every year, but the old ones were a lot of good looking stylish cars.

I must admit however the older cars had a LOT more class and style. :-))

I don't like to bust anybody's bubble or rain on their parade but older is not better. I am posting this link for education purposes. Believe me I would not want to be the guy in the old car.

Well, Mr. 51, you just busted my bubble!!! I know you are right though. I still think my '53 Pontiac was the best car ever!!!

We remember all the good memories, but none of the bad memories.... Like why we got rid of the things. I have to continually upgrade my old car to make it better and more usable. I added radial tires for better ride and better steering, seat belts for safer trips, Disc brakes for better stops, newer automatic transmission, so I wouldn't have to change the clutch all the time (they wore out regularly and had to spend time in the shop), and I changed the king pin sloppy steering configuration to ball joints, and my automatic transmission to fluid cooled instead of the old hot air cooled one, and I added a/c which they just didn't have, and I changed to 12 volts electrical system, because for one thing the old 6 volt batteries are just not that available any more and are weak, better new radio that isn't that old scratchy sounding thing, and I added turn signals, for safety and convenience of not having to put my arm out in the rain to indicate that I'm turning, and brighter headlights than those old dim things, and brighter tail lights, and a newer style engine that doesn't run hot all the time like those old things that boiled over all the time..........
But I sorta kept the old fashion memorable styled body appearance. That is just what I wanted for my own memories. But you can surely buy a better car for your money today. Even if they made them look like the old cars they won't sell good enough to be profitable. It has been tried over and over with only disgust and failure. If you want an old car you have to put up with the old way of doing things too.... like getting it greased every time you get the oil changed, like every 1,000 miles, and having those old tires following the ruts in the road because they are of bias ply construction.
Looks, yes they do look old and boxy, not streamlined. Their body shape in not of the modern airflow style, so they do not get that good of gas mileage either... Things are just not like they used to be....
Better to just remember the good old times, than to try to think of the bad parts that were the reasons that we moved on.
Yes, this is a '54 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible. nice car, but not as nice as the '54 Ford with it's overhead V8 engine, Chevy did try to catch up again in '55 with a better engine.
Everyone was in on the styling show off period of the 50's that is so memorable.
Red and white always captive attention getter.
Just having fun explaining my opinion. thanks for the great picture puzzle taybaijor.

maybe not better, but more beautiful; and they were built to last (not like the show-stuff today..)

Thanks, Sully Shamrock for providing the year! It's appreciated. Julie

No! today's car's have much better brakes & suspension airbags are a plus, steering is much better,but I agree the 50's cars were the cream of the crop .

rosesroses

In some ways, yes. They seemed so much sturdier. However, I'm glad I no longer have to roll those heavy windows down by hand anymore. There are features in the newer cars that very helpful and some that are very distracting to me.

Much sturdier vehicle, don’t crumble when they get a little bump

Sully_Shamrock

I agree 100 per cent, valentine!!! My dad was a Chevy man as well.

Mariposamia...I'm pretty sure this is a 1954.

Thanks for this great post, taybaijor.

My first car was this '54 Bel Aire model.... mine a black and white hardtop. Bought in high school, no seat belts, bouncy suspension, gas was 25 cents a gallon.... fun Friday night cruiser.

I believe the cars today are built with better materials and are safer than the older cars. However, I also believe that the cars of yesteryear were much better looking and classier than they are today. I keep wondering why they don't adopt some of the good-looking features of these older classics instead of some of the ugly designs that are coming out today. I was forced to buy a new car last summer, and I can tell you, there are some really ugly autos out there!

AlienBorn

Built better - flat no. But more interesting and more dangerous to drive, yes.

gvalentiine

YES! YES! A THOUSAND TIMES YES! I FELT SAFER IN THE CARS OF THE OLD DAYS AND I COULDN'T DRIVE ONE OF THESE NEW COMPUTER CARS TO SAVE MY LIFE. ALSO CARS LIKE THE ABOVE WERE THINGS OF BEAUTY, CARS TODAY DON'T EVEN LOOK LIKE CARS AND THEY ALL LOOK ALIKE. THANKS FOR A BEAUTIFUL PUZZLE! CHEVIES WERE MY DAD'S CARS.

Mariposamia

Indeed, and more beautiful and distinctive, too.
That's a Chevrolet Bel Aire, but I don't know what year - 50s, I think.

Vela

Love the look of the older cars! I could actually tell them apart.
