I like Photoshop Challenges.
Nice job! Thanks
WOW!! What's the rest of the story, or did I miss something? That album is a treasure trove.
I grew up in Arlington that's got to be from the heights.
Also the next post you made from AnnArbor is where my son lives now. Do you know what streets these photos were taken on?
It was sold on EBAY
I've seen a few cars that could use one of these since they were not using the seat belts .....
Yeah, but what a whiplash you got when the elastic bands rebounded!
The Arlington one was on Mass Ave. The Ann Arbor shots were near the University.
Thanks. I worked in a Esso station in the heights close by where that was taken.
My daughter in law works at the university.
It's a Small world after all
Are those dual distributor set ups? I'm not sure what I'm seeing.
Wonderful pictures! Thank you all for posting them.
RBantique- Many thanks for those wonderful pictures! They remind me of pictures I saw as a kid. My mom told me about visiting cousins in Sacramento in the late 50's-early 60's (I was born in '63) and the wonders of the car world she saw there.
you will put yer durn eye out....
if there is ANYTHING better than old cars and Girls I just can't imagine what it would be..
No wonder God called them WO------ MAN !!!!
4 ladies out for a cruise. The local 59 Impala/335 hp hot rod guys chasing them.
From the time I was able to steer a car, this was one of the first cars I actually was able to drive down a neighborhood street in 1954. My cousin's mom had a 52 Chevy 4 door with skirts. She always parked it in her driveway, so backing it up and going around the block was easy. There were times when she was visiting a neighbor and we borrowed that car to try our skills at driving.
We knew how the clutch/shifting/gas pedal worked after many hours of sitting in the driveway pretending to drive around the city. When we actually started the motor and tried out the clutch, that was something. Our record for distance was around two neighborhood blocks near our elementary school.
Later on in 1959, I took this cool movie of "4 ladies out for a spin." At the time, it was just a family movie for my mom's friends to see. Many years later, it is a classic part of car history.
