Driving down my street in Wilmington, DE, a 1964 Ford Galaxie 500. Red w/black interior. Chrome wheels that didn't look good on the car, but it sounded sweet!

1957 Chevrolet, turquoise and white, looked like it just rolled off the showroom floor. Even the tires were new...still had the paper tags on them. The only fault I noticed was the tires were radial instead of bias, which made the ride height slightly lower.
