I like seeing what's out there, older vehicles are so much more rust-free than the corroded and sagging junk we have here.

For example for years there was a '53 Cadillac DeVille sitting in a gas station lot off Federal Blvd in Sunnyside that had really faded paint but still looked incredibly rust-free. It had finally disappeared when we were last out a year ago. Solid old pickups are all over the place. I still fantasize about finding the '57 Dodge 4 dr hardtop or '60s'70s Dodge pickup of my dreams on one of our trips out, and we may be out for an extended (maybe 2 week) visit nest Spring! Might even look at some real estate. Keep 'em coming!

Hi, Roger:

I keep my eyes on the craigslist stuff (seems to be slim pickins lately), but I've never been on the facebook or whatever MP is.  I set up a "street finds" thread, but I haven't seen many posts there.  I certainly remember as a teenager in the 1980's there were a bunch of great cars sitting out in the open or even seen driving the streets.  There were still a bunch of ForwardLooks around.  Now they are very rare to see!

1958 Belevedere Sport Sedan $? Pueblo CO - looks pretty nice to me!

Oh man I'm diggin' that '58 - 4 dr hardtops are my weakness! While a '57 Dodge in that body style is my #1 fave that Plym Sport sedan really rings my chimes!
Wonder what they want for it?

On another note Mike, it looks like my daughter may have just sold her place on Clay St in Sunnyside and is buying a new (as in brand new) house on Urban St in Applewood (W of Denver). And at 43 she's pregnant for the 1st time! So we plan to be out in April for a couple of weeks!

Congratulations Roger!  That's great news!  Be sure to look me up when you come out.

I sent a reply to the craigslist ad for that Plymouth, but did not receive a reply.  Not sure what the deal is, but I liked it too.

Thanks! We're super excited, knock on wood, and her new house will have room for longer visits, the old place while cute was really a 2 br with a 3rd master suite added in the basement. She was wanting better schools also so it all works out.
Will keep you posted!

I love the originality of that '57 Belvy! Growing up in Baltimore in the '50s, a girl neighbor's Dad had a white/gold '57 Fury, I've preferred the '57s ever since.
That Belvy sedan would make a great driver.

That does look like a great car!  Seems like a pretty honest description based on the images.  There is something about a "no-frills" ForwardLooker that has a lot of appeal.  This one is a top-end Belvedere, granted, but not a whole lot of options.

 

This being the Rocky Mountain Region, I try to post a few of the ForwardLook trucks too!
