Whether you say the 1950's or simply the 50's, the decade had the coolest, most artistic cars of any decade. Cars of the fifties had a flamboyant personality and a unique style all their own, from the space age, futuristic looking fins to the hood emblems. There was an art to cars made in this decade that's not seen much, in today's cars.
I've been to a number of classic car shows, and have photographed cars from different decades, although no car decade draws me in more than those of the 1950's. I can't pinpoint when or how I developed an interest in classic cars, but it's there now.
