George and Mitt Romney, who would have been 11 years old, in 1958. Not originally published in LIFE.
A caption from the March 1958 issue of LIFE: “On desk George Romney keeps prehistoric animals to remind him of favorite ‘big-car’ analogy. ‘Some dinosaurs had a 70-foot wheelbase and huge fuel consumption. The principal factor in their extinction was the fact that they got so big they were unable to live.’”
George Romney sleeps in a station wagon’s built-in bed, March 1958.
