    Here is a couple pics of my dads first street rod he had plenty of hot rods growing up his first car was a 42 Willys sedan with a 392 hemi and a 4speed sadly I don't have a pic of it but I do know where the car is and someday I might be able to afford it lol. Anyhow the first pic is of his T roadster pickup in front of vickers Corp in Joplin mo somewhere bout 1975-6 my mom and dad are in the truck and my grandfather in the middle he worked at vickers and arranged this photo my uncle is on the right

    The second pic is a closer pic of my mom and dad with me in the middle we were getting ready to go to a car show in the same pickup before it was painted sorry for the damaged pic but it's all I have

  10. Family car was this 37 Chevy 4dr in the 60's. Before that my dad rode motorbikes. That's me closest to wheel on running board with my brothers and sisters.

  11. Not necessarily a real old pic with family, but me in 1981 posing with the 350 SBC that was put into the 74 Vega. Built it when I was 18 senior in high school. I drove that Vega 6 years through college (5 years) and when first working out of school. I know the Vega is OT for HAMB, but I still have a soft spot for another V8 Vega.

    Here's a couple photos of my oldest brother Larry and his 56 Chevy. They were taken in about 1960, or so. The third is of my older sister Carol, being a "Trophy Queen" with my brother Bob's 56 Chevy parts car, in about 1970. LOL.

    That's a great pic ,,I see you survived without the child safety seat and harness,,,
     
  15. The seat belt/ shoulder harness was you mom (or dad's) right arm in those days....

    Some time ago, when I was in my thirties, I rode with my mother to a family function.

    Even though we were both wearing seat belts at the time, she would throw her arm out across my chest whenever she would brake for a light.

    This is a great thread. I am liking hearing the family stories that go with the pictures. It made me go through some old family albums and load some photos but when I went to post them I found that Google had changed Picasa and I can not post any of my pictures anywhere. I'll figure something out someday.:(

    Sadly my dad in these pics, is still alive, but unfortunately, has dementia, is in a hospital and will be going to a nursing home, 1 year ago he still was working in his garage and yard. But at 84 anything can happen.
    I really think those who stay young and healthy physically and mentally like "Gene Winfield" for example, are extremely blessed, think gene is 89 this year, and still going strong.....

    My Ganpa's gas station where my dad and uncle worked. the house on the right is where I grew up and the station is where I spent all my time up to the day I went into the service. My Ganpa sold it to Phil who had it until he closed it because of health issues. grnpa\'s gas station.jpg

    I have to give a bit of credit to my maternal-grandmother....she always had unique cars, and absolutely loved to drive them with a smile! (Her favorite car was the Nash Metropolitan!!!) She rebuilt the go-cart engine herself in the garden shed!... and let me ride it every time I visited her as much as I wanted....she was fun, and didn't mind fiddling on her cars with a pair of 'altered' coveralls she made on her 1920's Singer 'flip-top' table sewing machine....she added a lot of 'fun' concept to my fledgling car passion in the early 60's....just a whole lot of simple smiles:D 001.jpg 2016-03-28 15.19.30.jpg 2016-03-28 14.48.43.jpg

    Yeah, The spare was probably too fat to fit the fender mount unless it was during the war when spares were rare.

    Wow D.N.D., that car is stunningly well built, with a ton of work to make it pretty in a time when many racers were comparatively crude looking. Any more history on it?
