    Interesting Film from 1958 (produced by Plymouth) on Safe Driving Trips

    From Hemmings today, this film has many images of fifties cars.... and I suspect some/most of us could use the reminders... I don't think new drivers today are exposed to these rules!

    Cool video. I remember some of these being used in driver's ed class back in high school. And some of the things I see everyday especially at intersections and yield signs - it's like no one is actually trained or they just don't care. A lot of drivers have it in their head that the yield sign doesn't mean a thing when entering the Interstate system. I see them come along and just moving over, like they never even looked to see if cars were there or coming through in the right hand lane.

    Cool... alot of those scenes were filmed around where I live (Santa Clarita...just north of the Los Angeles metro area). I instantly recognized some of the topography.

    Very cool. Thanks for posting these. We all love our Chevys but you have to admit that Plymouth convertible is a pretty car. Did anybody notice how the 55 Buick wagon with the ugly roof rack kept popping up in both films?

    Me too Harry! I sent the video link to all the youngsters in my family... daughters on down! They *may* learn a bit more about driving courtesy and safety if they watch the video.. AND see some great old cars!

    It was the chase vehicle for the film crew, they could not rely on mopar junk to get home, nothing has changed look at that junk they call a truck.
