During the summer of 1965, 17-year-old Christine Van Acker was given a black-eye by a Michigan Bigfoot. I previously wrote about the incident here. I am doing research to create a display about Eastern Bigfoot, and wanted to use the expertise of my Cryptomundian readers.
Can anyone identify, from the side mirror shown on this photograph, what probable brand of car Van Acker would have been driving? What is your best guess for the make/model of the automobile? Obviously, it has to be from the year of 1965 or before. There is no information about Van Acker’s socioeconomical status to know if her family would own a new or old car.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
