Posted earlier by hemihotrod66. I cleaned it up a bit.
Sydney Australia, Roselands or Bankstown Square I would say,,Back when shopping centres would close early on a saturday and have awesome hot rod shows afterwards. I have a few pics from this timeframe,,cheers
Everybody loves a parade. Victoria B.C. Canada. Late 50's Early 60's
More parade pics.
What is going on with the hoodless '40? Is that aluminum foil? Just parade dress? Some very nice cars!
I would guess it's foil... I've seen the old show photos where they lined the inside of the windows with foil to hide the "unfinished" interior. And seen a few photos where they had foiled the bumpers.
The model A roadster (second photo of that post) has a foiled tow bar. And the second '40 (below that foiled one) appears to have foil covering the grill guard.
Probably a bunch of friends helping each other and someone as a joke said, " Crap man we should do your whole car eh!"
That is Cal Morrow's Coupe I suspect...it sure did go through a number of transitions looking the Hotrod part all the way...thanks for sharing the Historic Maple Leaf Hotrod/Custom Movement..
Don't know which version
The red Austin on the right has VW Bug taillights, the 32 Ford Sedan has no taillights, but it has headlights. HUUMMMM.
I love this thread,, keep them coming please. Wish they would make tyres like the Firestones on the back of The Leg Show T , or do they?
Wraps are traditional?!
...The plan was to Foil the Hoodlum before he won the Race...
Don't need no stinkin' Tailights...
Looks to be across the pond...maybe they are under the splash pan...
Victoria B.C. Canada.... They got their dragstrip in 1967. Started as San Cobble Raceways then renamed it Van Isle Dragways. Closed Sept.1972.
