    I'm pretty sure this one has been posted before. I seem to recall the bug screen on the Caddy sparking some conversation.

    Do you have a location on this one, Jeremiah? I'd like to see if the building still exists...... Looks like a restaurant, or possibly a golf course clubhouse building.....
    ................................
    Edit: Never mind. I found the post and picture in Old Motor. In Colorado somewheres.....

    That pic of the restaurant that Jeremiah posted is Simm's Landing, in Lakewood, Colorado. Still in business today as the same location, but now known as 'Simm's Steakhouse'. I looked at it on Google Earth, but couldn't get a picture of what you see on the old photo posted. The building and the grounds around it seem to have been changed around a bit.
    - Got the info from a commenter on the 'Old Motor' posting of the pic.
    ....................................................................................................
    OK, further on in the comments, another comment indicates it's NOT Simm's Landing, but the Mt. Vernon Country Club, outside of Golden, Colorado. Looking at an overhead view of the building and parking lot, THIS location seems to be more of a match to the original photo than the other one. Has the adjacent parking in the correct location, and also the drive-thru 'carport' at the front door...... Again, can't get close enough on Google Earth 'Street View' to get a good current photo.

    Interesting picture. Notice the exhaust through the Rear Bumper of the '55/'56 Ford. Cool idea, but it didn't work out the best.

    Once they went to plastic though, it's been THE design go-to for 25 years! Seeing things like that makes me smile to think how clever the engineers and designers were 75 years ago and how there's very little new under the sun.
