Today I went to a muscle car cruise, where owners of vintage street machines bring them out to show them, so in honor of those cars I'm featuring a vintage travel guide of mine.
Published in 1953 by Fram, this great bit of auto ephemera focuses on New Orleans, and is "hosted" by newscaster John Cameron Swayze - I believe this was before he was spokesperson for Timex (It takes a licking and keeps on ticking.)
What a great bit of vintage Vacationland memorabilia.
By the way, if you want to see some of those muscle cars, check out my other blog, Daddy's Tiny Cars, where I kick out a collage of some great cars, some of which were from the time of this brochure.
