When Chrome Ruled The Auto World

When auto makers started looking for ways to reduce the weight of their vehicles to improve fuel mileage, chrome bumpers and trim were some of the first things to disappear. Now the minimalist, very light on chrome look predominates. If you gathered up all the chrome from every car on the lot at your local Ford dealer, it still wouldn't equal the bling that's on the hind end of this '64 Galaxie 500. Better have your shades on if you get behind this car on a sunny day!
