California Dreaming?

A press photo dated February 5, 1958, showing the traffic congestion problems that were common even fifty-three years ago. Most of the cars are American with the oldest being circa 1932 in the fast lane at the bottom. We can also see two imported sports cars; a Triumph along with an Austin Healey can both be seen in the fast lane. Check the enlargement for more detail. The Old Motor photo.

  1. Posted for QCMC, Also interesting to note several makes that are no longer in existence. I think I spot a ’54 or so Packard along with a Pontiac, Oldsmobile and some Chrysler products. I’m sure I’ve missed some.
