1950's Traffic In California.....

I was born in the 60's so I didn't get to experience the 50's but this is amazing!

If you go to the youtube site they have a bunch of other clips from the 50's.



  1. Some mighty fine looking vehicles in that video...

  2. You think it was bad then?? I lived there in the 70's and it was bad then, and its the same today.

  3. I wouldn't mind the traffic if I could wheel around in a Mustang from that era.

  4. Didn't notice a single pickup truck.

  5. Sure looks familiar. The cars, not the freeways. I grew up with these cars. Thing is, we didn't think of them as being fine vehicles back then. They were just cars. By todays standards they were really crude but they did have character. I used to be able to make out faces in the front and back ends of cars via the layout of the lights, grill, bumpers, etc. Some smiled, some grinned, some leered. Cars today are light years ahead mechanically but for the most part are pretty bland.
