1957 Ford Fairlane 500, Tail Light View

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Beautiful capture Dot! My mothers very first car was a ford of this same year

  • Thanks, Dennis. We had a used ’49 Pontiac and then a ’57 Chevy in metallic pink, which is probably why the ’57 Chevy is my favorite. So long ago!

    OH MY! This car brings back so many memories for me.It almost brings

    a tear to my eye.It’s the perfect look alike, of the car my partner and I built
    in the beginning of our car times.I mean to a T !!!!!!!! He passed away
    3 years ago. We bought the old car in our teens,and kept it till we was nearly
    50. She was a beauty. Thanks for bringing back such a wonderful memory
    of such a wonderful time and wonderful person. MMMMMMMMWA! ; )

  • Wow, you had quite a history with that car! So sorry you lost your partner. You have wonderful memories I’m sure. The 50’s were my favorite years, and my favorite is the "57 Chevy. This ford was in such excellent condition, you would have loved it.
