Yak Car Pic of the Day

Keith's '52 Hudson Hornet, "The Partridge Family"

If you had tuned your television to the latest episode of The Partridge Family on the night of February 19, 1971, you would have seen Keith buy his first car — a 1952 Hudson Hornet. I know money was tight for The Keithster back then, but I expected something better than this. Even Wally Cleaver bought a convertible, and he wasn’t in a band! (Okay, so Keith was in a band with his mother, but the girls didn’t seem to mind, did they?)

    MIGHT AS WELL HAVE BEEN DRIVING A MK4 PANZER. LOTS OF STEEL ON THAT RIDE.

    Ever notice how the wheels on the Partridge Family bus turned backward–?

    I hope Keith’s car worked better than his typewriter — which skipped the capital ” “. The key to his sister, aurie, discovering an early case of low-tech sock puppetry. ROF !!

    Speaking of which, sign me,

    RaChaCha – I never noticed the wheels turning backwards. I was too mesmerized by the paint job. And Laurie.
