Mike ~

Why not make them new ? This kind of thing is still made all the time.
Get some decent photos and find the advertising people to make it happen.
For all the really difficult things people ask me to make out of really hard
to work with materials, working with cardboard and string would be a piece
of cake !

Did anyone else notice the earliest documented automotive cup holder in history ?

Just look at the fin-tip mounted cup holder on the driver's side fin of the Firedome
convertible above. I almost missed it !

I didn't notice the cupholder, I was preoccupied by the kid about to pick his nose for the camera, the stationary exhale of cigarette smoke, and the '55 DeSoto hood ornament!

Notice that in the pic of the '57 DeS sedan with the little girl holding a brochure and looking in the front passenger door you can see the terrible sloppy fit of the rear door and trim... that was not at all unusual for '57! '58 was better and '59 much better for panel and trim fitment.

A quick comment about the noticed poor fit of the rear door on the '57 DeSoto sedan mentioned above. Back in the day it was common practice for the dealers to "rebuild" these cars once at the dealership from the factory as they were extremely poorly assembled. At my dad's dealership, he would have never had that car on the showroom floor without the door being properly adjusted which would be relatively simple to do. Many things "slipped through the cracks" at the assembly plants back then with the possible exception of the Imperial as there was more attention to detail. Still not the greatest but better than average regarding the Chrysler plants.

The 1957 new model introduction looks as if it was a roaring success at the Frost dealership. I wonder how many cars they sold based on the new low FL bodies for 1957? It makes me feel a bit sad because I know the build quality (especially of the early cars) was not all it should have been and turned off customers due to their propensity of early rust outs. And the recession of 1958 didn't help either.

I thought the Bill Stock Motors building and cars looked like there was a war on. Apparently they were damaged in a major fire and dynamite explosion that levelled something like 12 blocks in the downtown. Several (13?) deaths and various injuries (25 people?) in various gruesome ways. Yikes!

Yeah, not even Santa. But you have to remember this was before the govenment started regulating everything and people were eating eggs, bacon, saugage, cheese, fried potatoes, bread, biscuits and gravy, etc. and this was just for breakfast! Boy, it was great back then.

I don't know about no-one, but it definitely doesn't look as common as today.

I wish I could find an old picture of Bank Motors where my Plymouth was purchased, but I have come up empty so far.

no one was drinking corn syrup like it was water(sugar is addictive), and they worked.  now corn syrup in everything...  fried foods everyday with chemicals that make you addicted... maybe we need to make some regulations to go back to those pure foods

Ooo..A very early Fiat- Chrysler (product) connection? (I see Fiat 500s but they might be NSU Prinzes too ??)

A lot of awesome photos. I was wondering if there is a time machine that will take back to the good ole days when these cars were brand new , I can go to the dealership order myself a 1958 plymouth belvedere fully loaded with a 318 red and white . I know that is not possible but you can not blame me for trying

Tried that. That dealership closed in 2009 after only 21years in business. Doesn't add up.

Bagott Motors in Palouse, WA.  I bought this neon sign from them a few years back and hadn't seen these photos he had.  Only pics I have seen with my sign hanging on the building.  I thought the sign was late 40s early 50s but I was wrong.  Clearly prewar from the cars in the photos.  I've never seen another one like it.

It's unusual to see the Dodge/Plymouth combo. Usually see chrysler plymouth. Also, that height is unique as well. The more common ones are 9-13' tall. That's a super cool sign you got!

I'm thinking it was locally made. They had a fire in 1955 and had to rebuild most of the building, I think that is when the sign was taken down. They put up some new Neon after the rebuild I'm guessing in 1956 judging from the cars in the photos. The "BAGOTT" must have also been locally made. Palouse is in Eastern WA close to the Idaho border. Pretty remote place. Pics are of the install and some I took on Thursday.
