The Jalopy Journal
Timeline is wrong, but this nearly happened.
Thanks! I’ve been looking for a good set of chrome wheels to mount some black walls on, so we can swap to less formal once in a while. A little...
The two door hardtop at the lower rear is a dead-ringer for my own.
Vintage wrecking yard scenes.

What he described was a real necessity, though.
Smattering of stuff from my iPad. A few of these may have come from here; others, definitely not!

It is. The house that the main characters lived in was the Paramount House, aka Leave It to Beaver’s “Cleaver” house, on Universal’s Colonial...
Screen captures are from Send Me No Flowers, with Rock Hudson and Doris Day, 1964. I grabbed them a couple of years ago for, well, I forget why....
Posting these seems to be the thing to do, lately.

None of them used stock wheels and hubs back then, except maybe Pontiacs.

‘55 one-fitty! Six cylinder car. Looks brand new. I wonder if it ended up as a hot rod, a circle track racer that got wrung out at the SW...
I can just make out the OCIR logo to the right of “Raceway “ on the lane separator.
That’s how he struck me. Always smiling big when he was around racing cars and racing buddies. Plus - a lot of the racing pictures circulating are...
Arteaga and Helmuth Willys, as rolled out (well, I assume). Steel ‘39 nose and no graphics or contingency stickers. Wayne Arteaga is standing in...

This one appears to have some VW underpinnings. Front suspension, at least.
Maybe he didn’t either. Coulda been a staged shot. For all we know, the girls ended up partying with Jack Nicholson.
Next they’re going to tell me this guy wasn’t also a rock star who liked ‘em young.
Judging by the size of the trees, the first picture is more recent than the second. Was the building rebuilt after the fire? Looks like there’s a...
Gasser starter kit...
I remember that Channel 36 used stills of her and her voice in their promos in the ‘70s. “The Puuurfect 36 in San Jose”.
Canadian 1955 150 parked there. Not quite as plain as the version in the States; it has the 210 station wagon side molding.
Maybe the crew chief on the no. 65 Mini Cooper in the background?
