Photos of the Week: Fancy Lancer and Lonely Ford

Lots of fun photos this week, and lots of traffic- with 44,946 people reached and dozens of great new images, comments, and lively banter from you folks. In other words, exactly what I had hoped for. Usually the vintage images catch your eye, but this week's top photo was of a restored car- in this case a 1959 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer coupe that I've nicknamed "Fancy Lancer."

Look at all of that polished stainless and chrome. Wow! It's a spectacular restoration of Dodge's top of the line hardtop for '59, and I don't blame you guys for liking it, or 42 people for sharing it further. It sure is a beauty.

Our second most popular photo of the week is a bit more somber- I call it "Lonely Ford" and it's a 1961 Ford Squad Car from the Andy Griffith television series, all outfitted with Mayberry markings and decals. It sits alone and empty, and I posted it as a tribute to the much loved and respected Andy Griffith to mark his passing. 139 of you have shared it so far as a remembrance to a man we will miss dearly. Rest in Peace, Sheriff.

Be sure and stop by the Palm Springs Automobilist Facebook page for new images daily and lively conversation from car folks such as yourselves. Hope to see you there!
