    Yeah, the bike is mine, I rode it as far as I could and then pushed and carried it the rest of the way.

    Here's another Caddi I saw last summer that I forgot to post the pics of. It's in a small town in northern Missouri.

    I love old cars, but especially Caddis. I would probably try to rescue the old 38 and see what I could make of it but I definitely follow up on the 56? as well. I have a 53 that I found under a huge shrub. Only the taillights were sticking out when I found it. It's a someday project.
     
  3. I think it's a '54, but no matter. Looks like it would be a nice one to get back on the road

    That "Super Chevrolet Service" sign was probably worth more than the car they made a firewall out of it for. :eek:

    All the makings of a Gasser. That's actually not a bad bumper.

    This was posted to a "vintage" pic forum on Crackbook about Denver and the West. No idea how old the pic is. Maybe some of you are driving around with parts from these today.

    Had to look back to see what you were talking about,I wouldnt have noticed that just by glancing at the pic and wouldnt have known what the sign was suppose to have been either.
    Good eye;)

    I remember seeing Marty Robbins' race car on this thread somewhere and recently saw it on a TV show being restored. I thought that was pretty neat.

    My step grandfather worked for Cotton Owens for quite a while, up until he closed his yard. I got to steer Marty Robbin's last car through the mall when they were putting it on display in the Westgate Mall in Spartanburg, SC. It went from there to a museum, then who knows?
     
  28. NashT and Partsdawg.....does look like the old man's stufff from Enid....man that family's (inheritor's) still trying to hit it.....they've tried it before...guess we'll see if Vander Brinks does it....

    At least they didn't just crush it out, like so many families do. Although many of those cars will probably have that fate after the auction anyway! :(
