From the Great State Fair of Texas, Presenting the Top 10 New-Car Models of 1977

Photos by Nick DeWolf
A few months back we took a look at the snapshots the late, great Nick DeWolf took during the Teradyne co-founder's visit to the State Fair of Texas back in '77. Seeing as how this is the most wonderful time of the year, I went back to that estimable, invaluable collection to see if we missed anything of note, as curator Steve Lundeen, DeWolf's son-in-law, is constantly adding new photos to the archives. Sure enough, seems DeWolf had a thing for new cars -- and the women who proudly showed 'em off to fairgoers. Isn't that right, Bandana Man? More follow.
