My parents let me drive their 1960 Ford Falcon to Mt. San Antonio College, work as a grocery store box boy in the evenings, and in the summer I would take a break from work and cruise to Huntington Beach to body surf. No girl friends, but then I kept busy. Being a scholar geek surfer was not attractive to Baby Boomers.
The Americans first started creating compact cars back then. This Falcon was exhibited in the Placerville Auto Show. It is in fine condition, though the rims are not stock but 'reverse chrome' popular with auto buffs.

So this is the car you cruised around in as a younger man? Very nice, I had a toyota Corolla, haha, not as much impact as this fine vintage. The light is falling on the car perfectly, I especially like the glint from just under the door handle.
All the best

I do remember an old automotive magazines from my childhood and an one article about Ford Falcon too.
I think, this is not so popular like Mustang, but just one of the legendary models of Ford.
Good presentation of the oldtimer.

maybe the designs of the cars reflect or follow the mentality of the culture, the sense of identity of the prospective drivers and the wide and long settings they will be called to cross. I like very much your point of view, the car is so long, it hardly fits in the frame:) The open cover adds dynamism and maybe a story as well. Definition is superb. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Hi Ray dear
Nice shot of this beautiful Ford Falcon. American cars are always attractive and friendly to Iranians. Exposure clarity and well performed. Thanks for sharing
