  1. My Uncle's '40 Sedan with all of the front end accessories he could put on it.:D 08012016_0003.jpg
     
  2. I know it's not auto related but, I'm a big fan of nose art. The Delectable Doris and two others from WW2. I'm sure some of the guys who were on these flight crews came home and went on to be hot-rodders. 08012016_0002.jpg

  5. Thanks @Ryan! Grandpa died before I was born, but everything I've ever heard from those that knew him was that he was always quite a character and always a sharp dresser. As a kid I used to flip through these photos and imagine what he was like, wishing I would've known him. All these photos were taken around Phoenix. I'd love to know what church that is behind him and the '36.
    Here's a few more...

    I had the fire chief model with a little bell. Those things were hard to pedal in the dirt and grass. About the time I was strong enough to do it my knees were hitting the top inside. Brings back lots of good memories.

    Dad's '58 DeSoto. Westminster, California 1966. The car had black Tuck & Roll and ran Astros W/Inglewood Cheater Slicks. One morning my Dad came out to go to work and the big rock at the end of his driveway with the address painted on it was stuck under the front of the car.............the Astros on the front were missing.

    Westminster, California 1970. This was my Dad's Fastback that he traded to my Grandpa for a '63 Comet. The Comet was then used as a trade in for Dad's '67 Shelby GT 350.

  30. image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Hey @Petejoe , the sign says "OPALINE", you just can't see the rest. :)

    Here are a couple of my Dad, and his '60 Starliner, bought new in '61. 352 V-8 and an automatic. Set the class record in B/X at Mel Larson's with a top speed of 97 miles per hour. But an ET of only 18.70!

    Dad was a bit of a bad ass....check out the tattoo and the hangman's noose on the rearview mirror.
