Alberta Around TIME TRA EL V Hot Rods 'n' Hepcats In the 1950s, gleaming chrome and space-age tail fins symbolized a new way of North American life: individuality, freedom and prosperity. The Reynolds-Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin celebrates mid-century car culture with its Fabulous Fifties exhibition, featuring 25 vehicles – including a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad restored onsite by the museum's shop. The exhibits also include a "drive-in" theatre that screens vintage film trailers and car commercials; '50s toys such as Mr. Potato Head, the Slinky Dog and Barbie; and a hula hoop station. For head of marketing and communications Cynthia Blackmore, the drive-in sparks happy memories of cruising down to double-feature nights in her pajamas with her family: "It was a part of my growing up," she says.
