reminds me of artesia and long beach in the 50's
Nice, but not the Kilgore College Rangerettes . . . just sayin'
Born in '64, I have always been amazed at the ability of the blue collar man to convince the wife that dragging some rattlebox to the middle of nowhere, where she still had to cook and clean was some kind of vacation. They don't make ladies like that anymore.
Vacation? That's likely where they lived. When I was young, we lived in a trailer not much bigger than that one.
When the car was on display in CA (at Cars of the Stars IIRC?) it had a signboard next to it painted by Von Dutch; the heading read "Fashion Conscious MICKEY COHEN's 1950 Cadillac". The car went to New Zealand, but the sign sold at Barrett-Jackson in '07 to my boss (I forget what he paid but it wasn't much).
Yes it is....a Morton M5.
One of my favorites.
Lawyers, scientists, and supporters assembled during the Scopes monkey trial, Dayton, Tennessee, July 1925
Don, the '49 menus & '49 prices are GREAT!
Unusual building and unusual car. Especially considering posted at HAMB.
I recognise the car, but not the building...
Where is this shoot at?
The cocktail tastes just terrible.
No good fuel either - as we have experienced.

Interesting, I always thought, that the Tatra T603 came about in the 60's.
This made me study and realize it was introduced already in 1955, thus this is not even first year model. I do not like the styling, but I have to admit it was ahead of it's time in 50's. Had an air cooled V8, too...
Willie Wirehand circa '51.
Parade lap and some of the participants at a slalom event at Charlotte Motor Speedway-1970 with it's lavish pit facilities.
I'll see your Willie Wirehand and raise you a Redi Killowatt, SouthUrn
This little guy was in a lot of electric company literature and even in power company provided comic books aimed at kids about electricity safety back in the 50s and 60s.

That's Lefty Mudersbach with his triple in 1960.
Custer Channel Wing CCW-5
That's the first 3 engine dragster I've ever seen
From the archives. Thanks.
Interesting way she's shaped her whipped cream....
I wonder what she was thinking about???
Me too, though Tommy Ivo's "Showboat" had four. None of this stuff is as quick as one, but makes for great spectacle.
I still get goosebumps when I see her picture. Timeless...
This lucky PO3 has a fine automobile just like mine...
DeuceDon got me fired up about what a youngster USED
to be able to eat for, back when we were picking parts,
or whatever, and working for 75 cents or less an hour as
teens. ANYBODY have a photo of Bob's in Gulf Breeze, FLA?

Gulf Breeze was and is a suburb of Pensacola and is located
right on the gulf and Pensacola Bay in the Florida panhandle.
The fantastic prices seem to show this menu to be from the
mid-1960s. Burgers start at 20 cents! You could get a couple
o' burgers, fries & a drink for under a dollar! Four-piece fried
chicken $1.25. Eight-piece family chicken dinner $2.89. Wow!
