Photos of the Week- Robot Invaders ,Tailpike Cruiser, and Marilyn

 Lots of activity on photos this week - statistics tell me that viewership was up 76.26 per cent so hopefully that means that folks are enjoying the site. I'm going inverse with the top three photos this week. In third place is "Robot Invaders" which I took personally. It's a detail shot of the nested antennae and overhead ventilation system of the 1957 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser, and it was our third most popular photo this week.

 In second place, a historic photo of a bikini clad Marilyn Monroe and a privately licensed 1950 Pontiac Chieftain Club Coupe with whitewalls, deluxe wheel covers and whitewall tires. It's a charming bit of cheesecake I've nicknamed "Happy Birthday Mister Pontiac."

And our top photo of the week, again my own shot, shows off the dramatic tail of an impeccably restored 1957 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser Coupe. It's a wild car from any angle, but this picture accentuates the disappearing breezeway rear window, rear stand up ornament, and wild fins with anodized appliques. I call it "Tailpike Cruiser" and it is our Photo of the Week.

Be sure and drop by the Palm Springs Automobilist Facebook Page for daily photo updates and smart banter with knowledgeable car people just like yourself. It's more fun than Merc-O-Matic.
