Unsafe (but still eye catching) at any speed

Martha Benedict snapped the above photo of a Corvair – one of the models featured in Ralph Nader’s 1965 book on the dangers of the American automobile – with a colorful paint job (and flat tire) in Montecito Heights. “It’s great to see this gorgeous Corvair, a relic of the 1960s, tarted up with racing stripes on Montecito Drive!”
