The Jalopy Journal
Really dig the front end treatment on this roadster! ^^^^
Reminds me of the LaSalle grille and 40 Chev headlights combo. that was so popular
Thanks, Ron, for these great photos from the 1950 Roadster Show (and others, too!!)
Thanks for digging out all the Ptld. pics, Witchhammer!
(And another thanks to Maggie..)
Kudos for your courage, man. Not many of us would have attempted the "learning as I go"
route! Coming along nicely.
Had one, too; IDENTICAL to ...Bob's, back in '64. (Made my ticker skip a beat when I saw it here!)
Actually, we had 3 during that period; folks...
Nice design; you have some hours wrapped in that!
Spring is just around the corner!
Very Clever, D.D.; Well done!
In the late 50s, they were even used in "diggers", or "rail jobs" behind Olds, Caddys and Hemis,
starting off in 2nd gear!
ALL great examples!!
Looks like you're off to a great start; will be true to the decade! Nice pair of deuces.
Good luck with the project!
Looks like you boys are meeting the challenge with that rough/rusty body. Newly acquired skills are paying dividends; nice work.
Same goes for...
I have a copy of it too; came by it similar to StudeJoe when my Golden Retriever "dog-eared"
the cover when it was almost new in '59. Librarian...
Yowza; tripped over this thread whilst looking for another one. Good to see you back on
new project; really enjoyed the thread on your coupe a...
Have been looking for some vintage surfing shots for my file. Thanks!
Jnaki ought to be chiming in any time now......
Ouch; there goes the budget!
Yep, time is getting short. We had better get our long term projects finished up while we are
still able to crawl back out and get to a vertical...
Don't believe so; perhaps someone can verify? ^^^^
Time to give thanks, again, to all the contributors who keep this thread humming. (And a special
thanks to WQ59B for also including the date and...
Any idea if the buyer would continue with the same theme?
New data that came Monday is indicating this is more than a respiratory disease now. Will see if I still have the links and send them to you via PM.
Thanks for the pics; nice variety!
Good to see that an old shoebox Ford-illac is still on the road, and in the P.N.W.!
Love the slide guitars and fiddles; these were some of the first "car tunes", so to speak.
Why, these are even pre Hi-Fi days!
It's been many years since I lived there, so didn't trust my memory. "No way that can be Cabrillo."
Incredible the city council allowed it!!
Would like to think it is, cuz I was gearing up for some Waves of '64 and his surf guitar
licks as I opened this........and he was a car guy, too,...
One other visual, incidental detail, fwiw, the valve cover plug wire loom(?) was silver in '49, and gold in '50.
Possibly, but could also be a misprint, and is actually a '56 365 in. Eldo mtr.
Well, that's a real blast from the past, and to the beat of one of my old favs., "Green Onions".
Who remembers the band and the year it came out?
Very popular custom touch, back in the fifties, into the early sixties. Now that I think back on it,
the '40 models were often used too.
Welcome from the Best Coast, Rex.
Quite the fleet you've turned over through the years! And like the rest of us, you likely wish you
had kept a...
Blimey; it's Sydney Allard!
