Convertibles At The Marina

by Mike - 

This past weekend we went to a car show at the Marin Yacht Club. It was a small and friendly show. There were some interesting cars, I liked these convertibles.

1956 Chrysler New Yorker

The push button transmission is on the left.

Ford Fairlane

Ford Galaxy

Ford Thundebird

Buick Roadmaster


The first car that I bought in my youth was a Triumph TR6. Mine was yellow and I was lucky to have the little rubber bumpers for safety dictated by the US Government. I felt safer. 

This TR6 below does not have those bumpers.


Chevrolet Corvettes

As you can see all interesting cars are not Bizzarrini, Ferrari or Iso Grifo. There are even some that are not Italian. 

Here is the only Italian convertible there, an Alfa Romeo.

  1. That Triumph brings back memories!

  2. Yes, for me too but in mimosa yellow.

  3. Mimosa yellow for me as well.

  4. Driving one of those convertibles is like travelling back in time. What I admire about them is their long exterior, which clearly depicts 60s masculinity. And my favorite among them is the Ford Galaxy beauty because of its retro color.

  5. Penny,

    I agree they are beautiful.
