YAK Car Pic of the Day

62 ford byebyebirdie r copy

The other night we watched, for the umpteenth time, Bye Bye Birdie on TCM. In a great stretch, Paul Lynde played a married man with two kids , and one of my favorite scenes was with him and the family singing about going on The Ed Sullivan Show. “♬ Ed Sullivan…♩Ed Sullivan… ♪ ♫ we’re going to be on Ed Sullivan♩♪ ♫!” In the pic here, we see Lynde pulling into the driveway in his 1962 Ford Country Squire station wagon, just before going into a very Lynde-like rant about Conrad Birdie, the Elvis-like teen throb who’s stealing the hearts of females all over the country.

    For all-around classiness, that Country Squire puts today’s minivans to shame.
