    100_2284.jpg 100_2285.jpg This is the last one I know of now for the '41 Ford pickup. Harvesting wheat near Happy, Texas near the south rim of Palo Duro Canyon. That is Uncle Blake the original family hot rodder on the tractor. Aunt Ruby in the "Do Rag" with the grain scoop and Aunt Mary. The second picture is Aunt Marry with the scoop.

    100_2266.jpg 100_2280.jpg OOPS, two more. Aunt Mary, very pretty. You should see her in her HULA skirt. Uncle Punk on what became my first bike years later. Looks like a '39-'40 Ford rear fender on the left. Funny how a car can become a family member. Dad repainted this old pickup in a shop he was working in in Umbarger, Texas. I was "helping" sand it. When I came across lots of small dents on the back of the passenger side of the cab I heard another watermelon stealing story involving uncles Punk and Blake. Uncle Punk had just said "..ah that old poot won't shoot!" It's not like they didn't grow lots of watermelons it was some sort of sport.

    003.jpg My great-grandmother and the only car she had for over 20 years. 004.jpg My grandpa, who was always sporting a 'zippy' car he used to say as a young man. 002.jpg My Grandfather, Grandmother, (newly married) and my great-uncle, on the Oregon Coast...a rare treat indeed away from work! 001.jpg My Grandfather spent 20 hours a day on his trucks while I grew up in Oregon, but he always took a few minutes to help me in my fledgling hot rod frenzy...he knew his mechanical skills well, and taught me a lot about integrity and respect for your car,--------- I remember him every single day.
     
  10. Great thread! I'm a bit late but I also have to chime in.

    This is my Great-Grandfather with his Ford Model A in the mid 30ies in Austria. From what my mother remembers he must have been quite a character - officer in the Imperial Austrian Army, spent his money on cars, hunting (he had several hunting dogs) and women(he was married three times and had six children). My grandfather - one of his sons - told me that his dogs were sometimes better fed than his children.

    After him nobody in my family had an American car (mostly VWs) - until I came along.

    That's him with the cap standing beside the car. My grandmother is in the passenger seat.

    In this pic my grandmother is sitting behind the steering wheel (Austria had right hand steering until 1938), my grandfather is the smiling guy with the hat standing beside the car. Other relatives in the backseat.

    That's very cool man! I noticed that the steering wheel was a "right-hand drive"!.... I would imagine his Ford was a unique automobile in the mid 30's in Austria, with so many other European models so readily available at the time. Sounded like a very interesting man!;)

    100_2259.jpg Mom and a couple of friends in a boyfriend's T. She told me who owned the car but I don't remember. Somewhere there is another picture of it with a big umbrella covering the passenger area. Mom is the one standing on the seat. 20 years or so later I took accordion lessons in the house behind them.:eek:

    I've posted them here before but.....here's the grandparents (he was the only hot rodder in the family). He passed away when I was 16 and didn't really talk about the old days. I didn't find out about the Mercury until he was gone and didn't see pictures of it until my grandma was gone, but somehow I inherited the bug........and I love it.
    His custom '39 Mercury.........

  14. Must have been in fact quite a rare car. Here they mostly had austrian built cars like Steyr. Customs were high to protect home industry. Generally cars were much rarer in europe than in the US until long after WW2.

    That might be my great uncle Bud, he was a paratrooper but I thought during WWII and this picture looks mid 50's judging by the car so unfortunately I'm not sure who it is. I wish I would have had my grandma make notes on the backs of these pictures before she passed, but it didn't even cross my mind at the time.

  22. For those of you whom do not know where Useful, MO, is: It is on US 50 highway about half way between Linn, MO, and Drake, MO. About the only thing left is the Useful Cemetery.

    After the '36 above my grandparents bought a '40 Coupe. They moved to California in it during the war.. This is my brother in the car and Aunt Shirley outside.

    Hello,
    We just found some old family photos from the very early years...1955 OKC 34th Street. Walking distance to Putnam Heights Elementary School.

    One more fuzzy one of my granddad and brother with the '40 coupe. My brother was born in '40 so this must '42?

    100_2276.jpg Here's my grandparents (Mom's side) with the '40 in a shared garage. The '41 Olds coupe belonged to the neighbors. Her sister and husband. More of it later.

  30. 82431334-SLD-001-0181.jpg photo006.jpg I posted these in my intro but they seem appropriate here too. The kid by the Model T is me, the guy driving the Model A is my dad. I have a couple more of different cars I remember seeing but can't track them down to digitize right now...
