This set up reminded me of the movie made during the I Love Lucy television show. In the 1954 movie Lucy and Desi attempt to travel to the Sierra Nevada mountains in a 32 foot long trailer. I’ve included a link below to a clip from the movie. It is a great one to watch on a bad weather day.
This car is a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door wagon. I snapped the picture during the Tri-5 Chevy Car Show in Bowling Green KY. The car show displays classic cars made during a range of three years, 1955, 1856, & 1957. The popularity of the low priced Bel Air helped Chevrolet surpass Ford in unit sales in their first year of production.
Increasing popularity of the Tri-5’s today can be seen at this 2 day car show. It will be the second weekend of August at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green KY. While there you can visit the Corvette Museum and tour the Corvette Assembly Plant. I visited both sites in April. Touring the factory reminded me of my 5 years working in a factory, good memories mixed with an occasional feeling of drudgery. This factory uses robots to transport boxes of parts around the factory floor. We had a conveyor belt. Anyway today’s children need to have a glimpse of what factory work is like. And you can see the latest Chevrolet Corvette as it rolls off the line.
