Automotive, but with a beachy Throwback Thursday twist #TBT

1957 Ford Ranchero Front view 1957 Ford Ranchero Rear View

A week or so ago, a tweet (or is it X?) appeared on an automotive publication’s social media account … and it caught my eye (see below). It triggered a memory of a well loved plastic 1957 Ford Ranchero that my brother and I had in our large collection of toy cars and trucks; some of them were for inside the house play … and others a bit more beat up and dirty for outside playing on the beach (our beach in 1967 when I was a kid below).

There is a small part of me that would love to go back to those simple summer days playing in the sand with cars and trucks.
