    My late uncle's trike in southern California, started life as a Harley Service car. He had it in Michigan one summer when I was a kid giving rides down the gravel road in front of my Grandmothers doing wheelies. Uncle Tommys Trike 1.jpg Uncle Tommys Trike 2.jpg

  6. Aside from me, the black sheep, my military family really doesn't have any automotive tradition....

    I had to look real hard for pictures of anybody in my family standing next to any cars like they were proud of them.....

    Here's one of my Mom holding me, circa 1956 in Frankfurt, West Germany, next to our family Fiat....

    As for The Old Man, does running a platoon in the Battalion Maintenance Company count?

    Also circa 1956, he's in front of the jeep.

    Seems they were having trouble with the M62 wrecker that day...

    Cant remember if I already posted to this thread, but, I am so damn cute in this pic of me and my dad in 1954, I figured I would give you all a chance to marvel at my cuteness again. Man, If my wife hadn't married me 17 years later I would've married myself. If you look up "Cuteness" in the dictionary, this is the pic you see. I know some of you may say mean things to me about this, but deep down inside your thinking "damn he's cute". In fact, im thinkin of askin Ryan if I can change my call name to Ron "Cuteness"Brown. Sorry any of you single women out there, Im already taken. IMG_0942.JPG

    This picture was taken I believe sometime between 1910 or 1911 of my late Grandfather, Frank Smith with his newly purchased Indian motorcycle. He used to tell us stories about this motorcycle and how he paid an extra $3 for the headlight, horn and speedometer and was the envy of his Harley riding buddies. He was a cool Grandpa.

    This is my Grampa Couper (Circa 1955)
    Walter was a Buick Man all his life and loved his Cars.
    Came down with M.S. in 1957 and almost died of it, came back from almost total Paralysis and was able to walk with Crutches and Drive his Car again!
    He helped me put my first Truck together when I was 15, gave me advice and checked my work.
    He was too stubborn to let the M.S. kill him and passed away in 1986 from Throat Cancer.
    I still miss that Man.........

    What's the story on Aunt Irene's Corvette? How long did she keep it? Any idea where it is today? Congrats on having such a cool aunt....

    First pic is 1974-75, when visiting Pulaski,Ky where dad is from. That's my Great Uncle Bills' general store/post office. I'm just over the back corner of the roof of our '34 wearing the "cruiser hat" with my brother and sisters around me. Second one is about 1962, before I was born, but those are my older cousins in front of dad's J-2, 6 deuce powered Ford coupe. Last is dad, in the late 50's and his '53 Olds. He currently drives a '52 88 Convert. wagner house, Dad\'s cars 003.JPG wagner house, Dad\'s cars 005.JPG wagner house, Dad\'s cars 015.JPG

    Absolutely amazing car and family history. Best bobbed rear fenders ever, IMHO, too. Gary

  23. Here's my great uncle Wesley McKelvy around 1910, driving the first car to come to Bay City, TX - a Winton 2 touring car owned by Dr. Parker.

    The great grand-daddy to the Auderer roadster, @Ryan !

    My great-great-grandpa Harvey P Sorenson's blacksmith shop turned auto repair shop in Denmark WI, probably in the late teens or early 20's. Sign on the right says Ajax tires, I assume one of the young guys in the foreground is my great grandpa Vilas.

    IMG_4262.JPG
    A receipt from his garage for repairs including a gallon of gas for 13 cents.

    IMG_4273.JPG
    This is Vilas Sorenson with his Model A. The picture is clear enough that you can read his initials on his lunchbox. He married my great grandmother, who was pregnant with my grandma by another man at the time. Pretty salacious stuff in the roaring 20's.

    IMG_4266.JPG
    I think this is also him, loading up a homemade trailer with firewood.
