IIRC the 1st car to be "delivered" was one of those models that got airborne at high speeds because of the horizontal fins on the rear fenders.

The #2 car was the bastardization of the Thunderbird! They turned a classic sports car into a road boat!

#3 (The Falcon) was just one of those nondescript mid sized jobs to keep Joe Sixpack in enough seats for his 2.5 kids.

Expat47--and that summed up 1960!

SpyOne--very intriguing and cogent observations, indeed!

Maybe fatter passengers has something to do with it!
