Recently we received a call from an old car enthusiast who had just bought a 1959 Dodge. He was born in 1959. His parents had purchased a new Dodge that year and there are a lot of fond memories. For example, he remembered as a child looking out the car window and naming all the makes and years of cars they passed. Now he wants to reinforce the memories with brochures of all those cars by ordering one brochure for every 1959 make... and then go forward to 1960... then 1961... and so on.

 
1959
Cadillac Chevrolet Oldsmobile
     
Pontiac
Mercury Chrysler
     
MG Imperial Buick
     
Edsel Chevrolet Corvette Ford Thunderbird
     

It sounded like a rather expensive proposition. "Foreign as well as American?", we asked.

"I remember seeing Volkswagens, MGs, trucks and lots of others," he replied.

Needless to say the list of what was available exceeded his expectations and, two years later, he is still placing orders. What an enjoyable ride back in time. What did he see out that car window?
