Are You Following Us? Our Favorite Posts From January 2017
January 31, 2017
Whether you come to every Pomona Swap Meet or you’ve never actually made it out to a show, you can find original content straight from Pomona on our Facebook and Instagram. Here are a few of our favorite posts from January!
1. You never know what you’re going to see in Pomona, but we’re known for cool finds… and this Chevy tailgate bench is no exception (posted 01/07/2017, Instagram). Custom made from re-purposed tailgates, these benches are the perfect addition to any man cave or garage.
2. Originally conceived by Ford as “the working man’s Thunderbird,” first generation Mustangs remain one of the most popular entry level classic cars available (posted 01/13/2017, Instagram). Ford sold over a million Mustangs in their first 2 years of production. Fifty years later, there’s no sign of these pony cars slowing down!
3. This 1951 Chevy 3100 half-ton pickup displays the styling cues of Chevy’s “Advance-Design” trucks, introduced for the 1948 model year (posted 01/15/2017, Facebook). These trucks introduced a new era of comfort, convenience, and style from Chevy, and they featured a new, adjustable bench seat to accommodate three people in the cab. Speaking of the cab, it’s “unisteel battleship” construction was larger in every way possible, with extra wide doors and a wider windshield.
4. 1959 was the peak of the tailfin era, and Cadillacs exemplified that flamboyant styling better than any other auto manufacturer around (posted 01/25/2017, Instagram). We can’t get enough of the fins and twin bullet tallights on this ’59 Fleetwood Series 75.
5. We come out with new artwork for our calendars, flyers, and official event t-shirts every year. Here’s a behind the scenes look at our printer, Midnight Impressions, working on our official 2017 shirts (posted 01/01/2017, Facebook).
This is just a small sample of what you’ll see when you follow the Pomona Swap Meet on Facebook and Instagram. We try to keep it one hundred with everything we do, and our social media is no different! Check it out… if you’ve been to a show, you might even see a picture of your classic car.
