Remember When Bumpers Were Bumpers???

Uploaded: July 09, 2007


Remember when you hit something with these bumpers you tore up whatever you hit and not the whole front of your car as with PLASTIC. Plastic bumpers make me sick, bugs actually dent your bumpers!!!!

I know this is an old thread, but to set the record straight this is a 1950 Buick....I know because it was the second car I ever first was a 1937 Pontiac....And, you're right about the chromium steel bumper. Unless you happened hit a stray elephant at 50MPH, you were still good to go.....Great nostalgiac capture. #5348185
