1960’s Chevy Infant Storage Solution

“Oh no,” you say to yourself, “I have accommodated all that I needed to fit into my wonderful 1960 Chevrolet Corvair, but now there is no room for my beloved bundle of joy, ‘Joseph.’”

Don’t you worry, daddy; it’s a problem as old as time. That’s why the brilliant engineers at Chevrolet have ingeniously crafted a first-in-class baby cradle into the dashboard!

Incidentally, this is also a last-in-class.

From the comfort of his, shall we say, “exhilarating” perch, your baby will enjoy a second-to-none forward view of the road. And since the humble 80 HP engine is weaker than an asthmatic mule, you don’t have to worry about your precious, fragile little human tumbling onto the floor under hard acceleration; there is none!

Worried about your baby’s safety in the event that an abrupt stop is required? Don’t be, he will be safely retained by the standard, soft glass windshield!

But wait! There are other perks, too! Flip on the windshield defrost and set your HVAC to hot to quickly warm your baby – because a warm baby is a happy baby! Never leave your attention-hungry human cargo out of your sight, as his diminutive little body obscures your forward view of the road! And with the optional automatic transmission, gear shifts are hands free, perfect for one-handed coddling of cute little Joseph while your other hand rests safely on the wheel!

Thank goodness the times have changed.

These candid backstage Polaroids were taken by an unknown fan of Jimi Hendrix at the 1969 Woodstock. Hendrix performed early Monday morning so this would have been the last day of the festival – August 17, 1969.
