Here is a clipping from a 40's newspaper i found in my rafters
read more about halicrafters..
my dad worked at northrup in van nuys for 35 yrs,
he had a lot of halicrafter stereo stuff,,
got a nice stereo as a hand me down,
i kept it in a barn, the one that burned down..
I agree 100%. That jerkoff in the picture should be ashamed of himself, not proud. He's just another typical dumbass hunter....
Very true. Like I said, nothing negative intended. I know a bunch of hunters and like to kid them how I have to throw rocks at deer to get them to move on when I'm out on a bike ride.
Seeing the old tv ads...I just gotta stick this in. May of 66. I dont think we ever missed Bonanza on Sunday nites. So few channels, yet it seemed like there was more on to watch than now
That was everywhere on Sunday mornings pick your faith or don't watch at all it was YOUR CHOICE!Oh ya it was offered early mornings here daily on a couple channels back when some started with a Morning Prayer around 5AM and ended around midnight with the National Anthem!
1962 Ford Seattle
The jumping wolverines were particularly bad that year.
and we should do what with your opinion?
Nice shot of a '61 Futura there.
Well, Dick. I've never reported anybody in my three years on the HAMB, but I think that fella doesn't understand the HAMB rules. For one, no name-calling. This HAMB thread is a place for objective commentary about VINTAGE subjects, as they WERE, not as issues stand in 2011. I feel it was a cheap shot.
As far as I am concerned, it's just like people complaining about pictures of dead horses during the 1906 earthquake. Silly but, moreover, simply an inappropriate, socio-political interjection into an otherwise objective and respectful thread of conversation about HISTORY, not the way things stand in 2011.
Now, Boys.....everyone calm down. THis is NOT a forum for your personal beliefs regarding the moral validity of hunting. Especially when the game is not an elephant. I hear that elephants are not very tasty or tender. So, if you do not consume any meat products, good for you. But, if you enjoy a steak or burger....where do think that meat comes from? Answer...."Uh, the supermarket".
Let's all chill out and get back to the subject....
Vintage shots from days gone by
As you say, FlatheadGuy, that was my point. We don't need people popping up with cheap shots out of the blue. If they familiarize themselves with HAMB rules -- and this thread from Page 1 --they might be in tune. Nobody disses anybody, except to correct an incorrect statement about engines, trannies, etc.
Thanks FlatheadGuy. Sorry for losing my temper. BACK to the regular buisiness of cool old vintage material.

Ever wonder what Dr. Seuss did BEFORE writing all of those
famous and cleverly worded children's books? Well, in 1939
his Seven Lady Godivas was aimed at adult readers and
flopped miserably. That his books often tended to wind around
socio-political messages seems rather more obvious than, say,
Louis Carroll's earlier work (which, I think, probably served as
one inspiration for Seuss' material). That his books contained
criticism of the adult world and its philosophical underpinnings
never seemed to bother parents, especially those of a liberal
bent. So, down on adults, the good doctor made his fortunes
writing and drawing for the kids. Wikipedia states that a well-
known Seuss barb was, "Adults are obsolete children, and to
hell with them."

Wow....Dr. Suess looks a little bit like Mr. Rodgers.
Well okay then.
Holy hell, 6 million hits and climbing.

1957 Second Grade in San Diego auditorium assembly with Dr. Suess (I assume) reading "something" I think it was Cat in the Hat ... what a trip. He lived close by.
