Fifties Flashback : A Nostalgia Trip - Front Cover

Front Cover


Nostalgic history of the way things were in the 50's.

Cars we drove, clothes we wore, the movies, the drive-ins, service stations, car shows, car clubs, what we read, drag races, street racing, rappin' pipes and more.

Hub caps, squirrel knobs, blue dots and flamers all get their time in the spot light.
