  2. Yes, you can get a burger through the window.. However, the extra larger drink wont fit through the window and tipping it sideways doesn't work either. The plastic lid pops off , you know I have first hand knowledge on that part too!

    I have know Ryan since he was knee high to a grasshopper, hard to believe that smart mouthed kid grew up to be a good man. Well grown up might not be the best term, lol.

    Boy did this pic bring back memories! Graduated high school in 1960 and worked at a Mobil station with my hot rod between high school and college. Back when people would come in and get a dollars worth of gas. In between customers boss allowed me to have my '47 Ford tudor on the lift. I was lucky, we did mechanical work on State Troopers from the local barracks. Came in handy for minor on the road transactions usually dismissed as "oh your the kid from Mac's Mobil". I had a 283" with dual quads, scavenger pipes, wicked rake and no hood so I attracted police scrutiny mostly from the staties. Our little town, Rhinebeck NY, had only one officer, just like Mayberry and he knew everyone.

    Thank you for making the picture come to life. Sadly I wasn't driving during the 60's, so it is kool to read the stories about the era. You learned an important lesson at a young age, it matters who you know.

    I worked at a Fina gas station while in H.S., That coin holder would have got your ass kicked the first time you reached across a fender and got it against the fender while washing a windshield. It didn't matter if someone only got a bucks worth of gas my boss had us wash the windshield, check the oil, ties, battery, and anything else they wanted done. At the time I thought it was a pain in the ass, but looking back it was really a great time. I wish the still had service stations.

    Thanks for sharing very kool memories.
     
  12. Ditto for me, except it was a Texaco. You definitely better have that changer AND your belt buckle on your side or your ass was gone. Washing windshields and sweeping out did offer some great side benefits though!

    playing with this one a bit-flathead with a Columbia for now-47K mile Ca car restored again some years back. Runs great as is. Initial plan was to take out and sell all from radiator to rearend but am kinda enjoying it like it is.

    For some reason this one of my favorite 40s of all times. It’s just interesting to me.
    Thanks for sharing it with us!

  28. If you look close in the middle of the second row are two 40 deluxe fordors. Spotted this weekend in Tennessee. About 5 total rows rusting away on this property outside Gatlinburg. 20210312_085531.jpeg
