    Wow...a four door with a connie kit. Notice the black 57 Ford to the right of the white Merc. I've seen some 57's with large bumpers like that, and some with smaller (shorter) bumpers. What gives? I like the smaller ones better.

    I never cared for the look of the Continental kit bumpers, they always looked just tacked on.
    However, now that we are in the cell phone distracted driver age I am reconsidering that opinion.
  4. The larger Fairlane 500s had the bigger bumpers. The smaller Custom 300s had the smaller bumpers.

    This Model A Coupe is sitting in an old garage/barn in my little town. Up until about 10 years ago the owner drove this car occasionally, and had it in the local parades and cruises. Then he passed away, and now his daughter and son-in-law are its caretakers. They never get it out, and I've never seen that door fully closed... I ask them about it once and was told they would never get rid of it.

    They may not get rid of it, but when they are gone someone else will.

    Several years ago some of my wife's family had an opportunity to go to Montana to work on a large (several thousands of acres) ranch there. The owner was an elderly widow. There was a lot of old cars and parts as well as old farm machinery, parts and etc. sitting around. They sent me these pictures ( and more) since they knew I liked old cars and rust. While they only stayed there a couple of years, after coming back to Texas a brother in law kept in contact with the lady for some time. According to her, she had hired a "young" man on to help keep the ranch going. At some point apparently they had a disagreement over something, but she did not fire him. When she had to be gone for a few days, he used the bulldozer there to push all the stuff pictured and even more into a ravine and covered it up. I don't know what happened after that, but it really steamed me to hear that it had occurred!! M 1.jpg M 2.jpg M 3.jpg M 4.jpg M 5.jpg M 6.jpg M 7.jpg M 8.jpg M 9.jpg M 10.jpg

    Now that's quite a setup. I wonder what it was used to power.
