galaxy 3

Everyday life was becoming a drag. Every day was a carbon copy of the previous day. The boys needed something to do that would break up the routine. One of the boys had an idea of how to end their restlessness. After a night of the boys boozing it up, he said, “How about a road trip?”. Agreement with the proposal was unanimous. With little planning, the boys jumped into Joe’s Ford Galaxie and drove off to the border. Once in Mexico, the boys stopped at a cafe to get some grub. A sign hanging on the side of the building advertised food. Among the selections was “Pollo” (chicken) and “Carnitas” (a tasty pork dish). The boys brought along their own liquid refreshment. A large bottle sits on top of the car and one of the boys is holding a second bottle. The odds are that the liquid refreshment was some form of alcohol. One can only imagine what occurred after this photograph was taken. Hopefully, the boys had a good time and got home safely. This photograph was taken circa  early 1960’s. The Ford Galaxie was produced beginning 1959 and the pictured vehicle is one of the early models. This vintage real photo postcard has a light crease in the lower left hand corner and is in overall good condition (see scans).

  1. I’ll bet the liquid refreshment was alcoholic; I’d also bet by the time they were in the middle of the trip, they would have given quite a few pesos for a drink of cool water.
