Yeah, as was the custom then the more expensive the model the more cluttered its design was. I do prefer the mid-level Custom 300s just because they are much less laden with the flash. I particularly like the 1958 Fairlane base trim though (not the 500) but - dang - those had to be the ugliest taillights this side of the Edsel. Quad headlamps just worked with this body, although the Tbird-style bumper/grille combo looked a tad heavy. (see photo)



I still wonder if Ford's rear-end excesses of 1958 prompted Chevy to outdo them for 1959.

Cancer sucks. Cancer post-op is almost worse than the cancer. Best part is, being alive to b*tch about it!

I didn't even notice the RHD, yeah that has to be export judging by the license plate (don't recognize it). In 1958 this could have been Sweden as well, they didn't change over until I was a teenager.
