StormCnter Gents? How about an old lady? I was 16 years old in 1957 and this is a Ford Crown Victoria. My small rural high school was agog with a local boy left for overseas military service and let his girlfriend keep his Vic. She drove it to school every day and every day high school boys gathered around it slobbering all over it. Hers was turquoise and white.

MeiDei You're 1/2 right - it's a Ford Fairlane (500 ) easily confused with the Fairlane Crown Victoria, Fairlane Custom, Fairlane Ranchero, etc. After all this the movie is "The Adventures of Ford Fairlane" starring Andrew Dice Clay - I couldn't watch more than 1/2 hour. Gilbert Gottlieb was the guy who got electrocuted. Also in cast was: Wayne Newton, Priscilla Presley, Lauren Holly, Morris Day, Robert Englund & Ed O'Neill.
