    My dad, and his ''hot rod''.....he drove it in high school, and dated my mom in it.... I have the car now, and paid him $600 for it back in 1976....he was going to trade it in on something on a whim (a Chevy blazer I think it was), and I worked my self into a total stressed out frenzy to buy it, pedaling my bicycle in the early morning paper-route with ear muffs and WW2 arctic gloves and goggles (I know, I know, ...but I thought I was cool:oops:)....but I finally got it paid, and I still have it now.... as a project to put it back together just like it was in 58'.....I'm glad I hung onto it now!!!....it was tricky maneuvering a few times over the years to be sure! 019.jpg 020.jpg

    OKC 1960 Norman, Oklahoma (brooks st.)
    Hello,

    This is where our great, great grandmother lived in Norman, Oklahoma on Brooks St. She lived there for many years and she loved the neighboring “Sooners.” Once, she stayed with us for several days. She could not get over the “California” lifestyle. (Walking on the piers, the ocean, and having cookouts at the beach, and all of the “caaahs”…etc.)

    Here's my cousin Bill with what was then his grandparent's '41 Olds, the one my dad and his uncle rolled. In '57-'58 and in high school this was his ride. He did a pretty good job on the body. Bill was a year older than my brother so when my brother got his '39 Ford coupe running naturally there were dirt road drags in front of our house. The ford won every time. Bill proposed a longer race. They raced around the section we lived on. Four 1 mile straightaways with four 90% corners. The turns favored the Ford but that Olds loved the mile long runs between. The land was so flat that Bill's little brother Bob and I climbed a tree and could see the whole thing. The Olds won by about 50 yards. It could have only been cooler if my Brother had been driving our grandparents '40 parked next to the Olds in this picture. It was already in California. Sorry no pictures from then. 100_2264.jpg

    This picture was taken at the Westhampton NY Drag Strip and posted in the local newspaper sometime in the early to mid sixties. I'm the skinny one in the middle at about 17 years old with our 36 Ford drag car. IMG_0928.JPG

    Hello,

    This cool looking roadster with wooden wheels belonged to a relative (great great gp) from OKC back in 1940. Also, a very nice bow tie…from our old, family archive photo album. It is nice to know that someone in the long-ago ages liked cruising around in cool looking cars.

    Hello,
    Here is another roadster that our great, great, grandpa owned and drove around OKC during the 1930's. That bumper just makes a cool looking face for car art...

    If you were born after that accident, you may want to frame and preserve that photo.

    Hello,

    This photo from 1899 was taken in Kansas City, Kansas. The whole first grade class photo. Our great great grandmother is in there somewhere. Very cool school clothes...

  25. Ok, I cam across a couple of photos, they are not the "hot rod" photos like the many in this thread. My father was a mechanic and as such we had 'normal' cars, but he worked on a number of American and Foreign Hot Rods, including: a 1955 Chevy hardtop dirt tract racer, Lola, Austin Martins, and Tigers. But before and after he was in the Military so we moved and many photo were lost. But I do treasure these. They were taken in 1956 in South Dakota, my Fathers home state, and it must have been during one of his 30 day leaves in which he would go 'home'.
    The truck was my Uncle's and since he was a farmer and the truck is recent and looks good, he must have had a good year in 1955.

    My Dad is wearing his pith helmet.
    And this picture must have been the vehicle we drove from Southern California, my Dad was a Marine stationed in Camp Pendleton.

    Salton Sea Camping 1959
    Hello,

    Camping with the family back in those days called for a family sized 1959 Chevy 4 door wagon. Everything was packed, tent, stove, cooler, cooking stuff and of course, tons of food. A small outboard powered boat was towed, for fishing? Salton Sea? Corvina was plentiful…(but Tilapia still thrives, today) We were able to just float around and play. Our mom usually maintained the cooking while our dad did the fishing and fake hunting. When other people would drive up to the campsite, the big shot gun came out and big booms went out over the water. Needless to say, the nearby camping site became empty again. He was a mean one, Mr. Grinch !

    upload_2017-1-5_3-45-36.png elementary school in april 1902 OKC
    Hello,

    We all have seen old photos of “time, back in the day,” But to see your great, great grandma dress up to go to school is strange. This was taken at a public school in the OKC April, 1902. This was when she was 9 years old in grade 3-4. It was in a multi grade level school room like we have all seen on TV western shows.
    Dress up to go to school, what a concept.

    There were standards back then. Even in the 50s and 60s there was a dress code in schools for both students and teachers. Even in the 70s I had to wear a tie as a teacher. No one wore shorts, T-shirts, or flip-flops. Public dress was different than casual and even casual was not like now. I am always amazed at how people dress for church, funerals, weddings, and dinner at a nice restaurant. We have become largely a society of slobs.
