Driving around So-Cal circa 1952…

Time for another vintage driving film remastered at 60 frames per second and colorized a bit. My guess, by some of the license plates spotted, is that this movie was shot in 1952 (black 1951 CA plates, with a year tab added). Although the majority of this footage focuses on suburban homes and yards (pre-tract mall days!) with lots of palm trees, there’s still a number of great background cars to check out- Among the bevy of Nash, Hudson, Ford and GM offerings, you’ll spy a truck bed-conversion car (a set up often used during the war to score extra fuel rations), a ‘canned ham’ travel trailer, a few woody wagons, and maybe even a hot rod or two!
