American Life In 1957. What A Time!

I enjoyed making this section of my one-hour documentary, The Sputnik Moment. Suburban America. 1957. I have a completely different perspective on this same time frame in my television series Making Sense of the Sixties. If you want to see this documentary in totality, search Sputnik Moment on my YouTube channel. Thank you. #1950s #1957 #babyboom

"There are no cars left," they said | Barn Find Hunter - Ep.39

Tom Cotter's 1939 Ford Woodie wagon comes to the rescue once again in this week's episode of Barn Find Hunter. While Tom is having lunch in Midland, Texas, a man takes kindly to the old Woodie and strikes up a conversation that leads to a whole day's worth of finds. The tip yields plenty of cool hot rods as well as a Plymouth and Pontiac that could be sale… for right price, of course.

Motoring through LA in the early 1950s one's shocked to see freeways that are wide open, streetcars, even Model A Fords still on the streets, a bustling downtown and the first malls, a Ford and Chevrolet Factory and it all looks so clean.
