YAK Car Pic of the Day

'48 Ford, Lewiston, N.Y.

So here, in the Village of Lewiston, is a nifty 1948 Ford sedan. Not completely stock, for sure, but not overdone either. I like the spinner Olds wheel cover — but where’s the back one? Maybe the fender skirt’s too close to clear the spinner? In that case I’d lose the skirt. And maybe one of the rearview mirrors. But that’s just me.

Saw another ’48 the other day which we’ll throw up here soon.

    The ’48 marked the end of ‘old’ Ford Motor Company which was replaced by the redesigned  ’49, a car that was the result of the efforts by Henry Ford II and his ‘Whiz Kid’ management team  who were  credited with FOMOCO’s survival and subsequent success. That period is well covered by Douglas Brinkley in his book, “Wheels For The World.”

    I’m with you on the skirts, Jim.

    • Brinkley’s book is a must-read for any car fan.
