YAK Car Pic of the Day

Passed this 1951 Ford Custom V-8 Club Coupe just yesterday on Grand Island. Love the car; hate the wheels — especially the way the fronts stick out from the fender. Should have stuck with the stock hubcaps, which the brochure describes thusly: “Classic dignity and simplicity of design characterize the massive new Deep-Section wheel caps.” You owe it to yourself to check out the thoroughly entertaining (and just darn thorough) brochure here. Starting price for the six-cylinder Club Coupe was a mere $1,505. Over 53,000 of them were produced.
