License plates seem to be 54-57 era.
55 Ford. 56 Ford had slightly different tail light lenses in the same housing, and a 55 Merc wagon had tail lights were completely different.
So, this definitively shows that it's Field Day 1955 depicted in the film.
1) the 1955 Ford did not exist during FD 1954
2) W7DK/7 was the top 7 land FD score in 1955 and 1954, but not before or after.

Article on KTNT-TV (Channel 11) a CBS affiliate station in Tacoma, WA.
WOW!!! KTNT-TV in Tacoma, WA running 120 Kilowatts ERP in the mid-1950s. Wonder what their electric bill was??
Television was in its infancy then with the "I Love Lucy" sitcom TV show shown on CBS affiliated stations being the most viewed comedy program during that era.
My 1959 Handbook is only $3.00 (printed on the front cover).
Well, last night I watched the film on the big TV in the den...it was great. Almost like watching my old man and his buddies set up for FD (I'd have been three years old at the time).
