Default The Dodge Texan



I found myself surrounded my angry Yankees this weekend. With a hint of deceit in their eye, they asked about "Texas Pride" and why all Texans figure they have it made simply because of the geographic location they reside in. I panicked a bit, but se...

Ahhh, Texas. The state that thinks it is a country.
It is hard to explain to people how Texans feel. The closest I have come is to explain how people from California and a few other states have a real arrogance about being from there, and Texans have pride.

Someone once told me
"you never ask a man where he is from, if he is from Texas he will tell you and if he is not you do not want to embarass him"

Ryan ... cool Advert ... thanks for posting it pardner ... and as for that song, I think they got the lyrics wrong ... I always heard it was "you can tell a man from Texas ... but you can't tell him much!" ...

HAMBer StillOutThere snapped some pics of a 1956 Dodge Texan in Fredericksburg, Texas ... during the Central (Austin) Texas Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America's "56th Annual Texas Tour" ... at the time these pics were taken (May '09), the car was owned by Red Brogden of Midland, Texas:

The ad is for a 1956 Dodge Texan. The female car to this package was the Dodge LaFemme. I do know a guy in Nevada who has one of each, both restored. As far as I know, he is the only guy in the US that does.

YOU'RE FROM TEXAS (C. Walker)
as recorded by Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys (1946)

Pardon me stranger I hope there's no danger
You'll think I'm getting off of my range
Oh but I calculate that you're from my state
And though it might sound strange

I allow as how you're from Texas
You speak the lingo that I understand
I'll bet my kale that you hail from Texas
There's no mistaking the brand

You've got a smile like an acre of sunflowers
And your eyes are blue bonnet blue
Shake hands, its grand that you're from Texas
Cause I'm from Texas too!

And (to kinda keep things on topic) there have bee a LOT of Texas Edition cars and pickups. I guess the first one I really remember was the 1967 Texas Edition Mustang. It was painted Bluebonnet Blue.

There must be a thousand songs about Texas. For some reason, they don't mention fire ants, bag worms or humidity.

Not many about tornados, drought, floods, wind (all in the same week). Not many about sand, cactus, rattlesnakes, scorpions,..........................either.

My great uncle bought a Dodge Texan new in '56 and still had it in the late 60's. Don't know what happened to it. He died in the 70's.

I worked in Houston in the early 90's with a man that had one for a daily driver. It was pink, black, and white 3-tone.
