    1961 Chrysler

    What catches my attention is mention of a standard transmission. I just don't think of shifting gears and Chrysler in the same thought..

    1961 Studebaker

    Looks like a lot of improvements went into this '61 Studebaker. However, it apparently wasn't enough to keep the company going.

    1961 Thunderbird

    I've learned something else. I never envisioned a moveable steering wheel way back in 1961.

    1961 Corvette

    I can't look at an old Corvette without thinking about the old TV shows Route 66 and 77 Sunset Strip.

    1961 Cadillac

    I had a great-uncle and great-aunt who drove a '62 Cadillac. They said they got 17 miles per gallon on the highway, which was pretty good for those days.

    1961 Imperial

    The 1961 Imperial, DeSoto and Chrysler looked so similar to me, it's no wonder all three couldn't last much longer.

    1961 Lincoln

    Another one of those monsterously large cars. Looking back I realize I grew up with the common folk. Pretty much anyone in our family or neighborhood drove the basic Chevy, Ford or Plymouth.
