Judy Rose's Saturday Roundup

Photo of the Week

Judy Rose

Wheels...1954 style! If you were a high school senior in 1954, chances are you didn't own one of these. This restored 1954 Ford Crestline took the First Place trophy at an antique auto show held June 23rd in Ebensburg. This vintage beauty sports a sea haze green paint job, whitewall tires and a continental kit. The proud owners are John and Dolly Machura of Parkhill. Its owner says he received questions about the color of the paint job...some doubting Thomas' questioning its authenticity. To which John replies: "I wouldn't go to all the trouble of restoring a car to it's original condition and not give it an authentic paint job. The color is authentic."
