A 1959 ford Fairlane skyliner.

For a little contrast, a 2011 ford Fiesta.

For even more contrast, my Ford mustang and an Amish buggy.

This Ford Antique car show was on a Sunday in Bird in Hand, Lancaster county. From my understanding there were about 100 cars here, featuring cars from the ford model A to a 1959 Fairlane skyliner that is shown in this post. I arrived on the late side to this event, but was still able to see a good amount of cars. Getting back to the ford fairlane, in speaking to one of its owners, she told me this particular car was involved in the floods of 1972 that had hit this area at the time. hurricane Agnes didn’t help things either, so its safe to say this car was pretty much a rusted basket case. And after looking at the before and after pictures of the fairlane that description would prove very true. So with this car the owners had to have a lot of vision, and some hard cash here and there to get this car looking like it does in its present state. Below is a sort of contrast in the fords of yesterday and today with the 2011 Fiesta, and just for kicks a picture of my Mustang and an Amish buggy. I don’t think examples of contrast become more apparent than this. Richard from Amish Stories.
