YAK Car Pic of the Day

One more movie police car before we move on… Last week I watched the premier of the A&E series Bates Motel, which is kind of a prequel to the 1960 movie Psycho — except for the fact that it takes place in present times. Confused? So was whoever dreamt-up this idea. But it was interesting nonetheless. Anyway, here’s the 1959 Ford Custom 300 police car from the original movie. This was driven by the cop who was sitting across the street from the used car lot where Janet Leigh traded in her black ’55 Ford for a white ’57 Ford. And we all know where that one ended up.
