Thanks.

 Somehow, I get the impression that the one in the 1960 photo didn't have the entire lower half filled in with BONDO Wink

My first car was a 61 Chevy which I bought with paper route money.  The very first time I let my girlfriend drive it while I was at work, she brought it back with a large dent in the passenger door.  Over the next few years "Bondo" and I became very good friends.

One like this, except it was a copper color.
It had a trunk big enough to sneak another couple into the drive in.

Ha! When I was a kid, my dad and his best friend got drunk one night and started arguing which of their cars had a bigger trunk. A '61 Pontiac Chieftain or a '63 Cadillac DeVille.

I woke up the next morning and said "Somebody stole my bike! My bike is gone!!"

My mother said "Oh, it's just in the trunk of your Dad's car - they got drunk and started putting various things in car to see whose was biggest" - a full size bike and it fit right in there. I never did hear who won.

You could have put a whole FAMILY in there. Plus the dog and a couple of cats!

It's one of those things "old" guys argue about.  I must have been listening too.  I've owned two Grand Marquis'.

#2 sure looks like Maywood Park to me, although I wouldn't have gone there in 1960, I was there in the early 70s, though.

It's been a long time, though. The last time I was there was in the early '80s.
