Summer is here, and for many people that means road trips with the family!

In this day and age of minivans and large SUVs, packing up the car isn’t usually an issue. Navigation systems and smart phones mean people hardly ever get lost, at least not for long. But what was it like in the 1950s?

In 1954 Chevrolet produced a video with an appropriately kitschy title, “How to Go Places,” that gave useful tips on taking road trips. If you want to take your next trip ’50s-style, mark up that map, and don’t rely on strangers for directions!

Bonus: You’ll learn how this family fit three-across in the back seat. (Hint: It doesn’t involve child restraints! Or seatbelts!)

Sit back and enjoy the ride.
