Red Chevrolet ...

I've seen a million photos of the Going-to-the-Sun Road over the years, but I found this one on the web recently and it immediately became one of my favorites. It's from a box of slides taken in June 1963 by an unknown family from Great Falls, on vacation in Glacier. They're heading up the east side of Logan Pass, and that's Going-to-the-Sun mountain in the background.

That old Chevrolet is just so wonderfully red.


  1. Doesn't the image make you wanna sing the Star Spangled Banner or something!?

  2. Heh ... it actually reminds me of a famous old jingle, that was Chevy's theme song when I was a kid:

    See the USA in your Chevrolet
    America is asking you to call
    Drive your Chevrolet through the USA
    America's the greatest land of all
    On a highway or a road along a levee
    Performance is sweeter, nothing can beat her
    Life is completer in a Chevy
    So make a date today to see the USA
    And see it in your Chevrolet.

  3. OH!
    Now THAT is one I'd like to see on the wall!

  4. Me, too! I wish I could take credit for that one. :)
