Those are pretty cool but I think I like the little calendar better ;-)

Marilyn Monroe
Even though this calendar does not have a Feathercraft, it is still pretty interesting. I keep this for historical reasons, because the calendar has notable dates in history, You can even find out what phase the moon was in back in 1953. I hardly ever look at the picture.

Here is another little risque wallet calendar from the same FC dealer in IL that I have previously posted one from 1958. This one is from 1960. I guess that means I need to look for one from 1959.

I think I weighed in at about 135 pounds in high school. I used to ski off a 12 foot boat with an 18 HP Evinrude.

Picked up a very nice '56 FC catalog and it has a few more pages than what is posted on the site. I am in the process of scanning it for Steve to update the site's catalog. Thought I would share a page here.
