1957 Reunion

This image is of a 1959 Prom, held at the Abe Lincoln Hotel.
Hard to say if it's SHS '59--do you recognize anyone?

Some of you probably had friends in the Class of '57.
They held their 50th Reunion on August 17-19, 2007.
C. E. Welch sent me their list of attendees.
Perhaps you remember some of these folks.
Your comments are welcome.

Thanks to Sue Ervin and Judy Van Hagen

Route 66 Festival

For car-culture fans, Route 66 is the Main Street of America. Running nearly 2,500 miles from Chicago to Los Angeles, 66 was the highway for Midwest and Plains migrants seeking work during the Depression.
Each year in late September, Springfield hosts the Route 66 Festival with a parade of vintage autos. They cruise up Dirksen Parkway, circle the Old State House, and park along Gasoline Alley, on Washington between 5th and 6th. See the Festival site for film and event schedule.

These images show a few models that may be familiar to you. Can you identify all three as to make and year? (Another prize is available--leave your comments).
