YAK Car Pic of the Day
by Jim Corbran - posted 12:01 am, April 4, 2012
…(in a photo almost as grainy as the beach itself), from the sands of Wasaga Beach, Ontario in the summer of 1956 — a base 1954 Meteor sedan. (My sister Pat and I were in the foreground of this photo, but I didn’t think you needed to see that!) The Meteor was a Canadian variant of the Ford, which was sold at Mercury dealers north of the border; there was also a Monarch, which was a Mercury variant sold at Ford dealers. A great source for info on these cars is the 1993 paperback titled Monarch Meteor, by R. Perry Zavitz.
