YAK Car Pic of the Day

’50 Ford Custom Deluxe Fordor, Grand Island, N.Y.

Been seeing this car under a tarp for months now in a driveway on Grand Island, wondering what was under it. Low and behold, yesterday I drive by, it’s uncovered, and I find an almost-stock 1950 Ford Custom Deluxe Fordor sedan. The brochure calls that large-looking trunk a “Deep Deck Luggage Locker.” Great for smuggling friends into the drive-in, I’ll bet.

This was one of those days with the sun at the wrong angle, and the car was wedged between a tree and another vehicle — but after all this time I had to take the shot. Looking at it later, this black sedan (with the 1950 N.Y. tag) just looked better in good ol’ black-and-white.
