    I was thinking about where I had seen a cool looking sedan on a trailer. So, I started at the latest folder for recent photographs and found it. It is not like other trailers I have seen with cars of different makes, on them. Usually, the modern trailers used double axles. This one used one single axle. (shades of the old drag racing trailers from the late 50s and early 60s)

    The trailer was impressive, but, I was impressed with the 1924 Ford Model T Sedan on the trailer. The bright color caught my eye as I was driving on a cross street, one block away. Far down the street, I thought I saw a red flash as I turned on the correct neighborhood street.

    Something told me to go back around the block and see what that red flash was on the other street. As I approached the correct street address, there was this wonderful red, 1924 Ford Model T Sedan sitting on a trailer hooked up to a modern, matching red truck. (not HAMB friendly) So, the photograph was taken out of the window concentrating on the old, Ford Sedan.


    It was a fortunate photograph as it exemplifies old and new at the same time. I took several and was happy with the digital images, although there is a tree along side of the house in the background. This newer photo is much better…

    By the way: @jimmy six posted more information about this Ford sedan. It was voted the “Best of the Show” at the First Friday Roadshow Event at the OC Marketplace in Costa Mesa, a day earlier than my HAMB photo post.

  11. Here are a few of mine...56 Pontiac with previous owner in Northern Arkansas, 64 Chevy Stepside & 57 Pontiac, both from the same seller in Fernley, Nv. I paid this guy to deliver them to my place as I was way to busy. It turned out we were able to meet up in a Flying J in Missouri as I was on my way to Cal with a customers car! Lastly, my 64 Grand Prix after loading it in Lancaster Ca. & bringing it back here to Ohio

    God Bless
