    upload_2021-4-4_3-33-2.png OKC 1930s

    Hello,

    My wife’s great grandpa used to have a stylish presence back in the 30s. We found a photo of him posing next to an old sedan with his long coat and Stetson hat. But, those white socks needed a different choice, though…ha! We can imagine that he and great grandma were quite a pair driving around in that old sedan.

    This was in the OKC area in the 1930s and the only way to know was through old journals and photographs. History in the making… for sure.

    Jnaki

    We always thought of OKC as being out in the flatlands and was always hot. These old photos that were uncovered answered the question of … “Did you walk to school in the snow?” It was definitely a long wool coat weather outside during most of the non-Summer conditions. Yes, my wife said she (so did her mom when growing up in OKC) did walk to school in the snow.

    These were taken at the Hunt Armory in Pittsburgh.

    The Civic Arena was being built. It was the only building of its kind. The roof opened in a circular motion. The mechanically retarded idiots who run Pittsburgh today had it demolished!!!

    I would drool over this car when I was a kid. My dad would show me pics of the hot cars from the early 60s.
    I wanted and owned a 62 Chevy. It wasn't bad ass like Dyno Dons.

    Wow! Can't remember when the first show was at the Hunt Armory. I'm thinking 1960-61. The last show I attended there was Feb. or early March 1965. I recognize several cars in the photos.

    Anyone have the above photo without the blob added?


    Hello,


    As nice as the photo of the Mooneyham-Sharp 5 Window Coupe is with the posing, that added blob makes the picture not good. Here is another one taken during the same time period posted by @deanlowe and does not have the blob added. No, that is not my 1940 Ford Sedan Delivery in the background. When we visited a friend that lived around the corner, we saw the coupe and were in my 1958 black Impala.

    It was a surprise to drive around the corner and see the Ford coupe sitting in the driveway and on another time, in the garage. Lakewood was one of the first “planned” communities in So Cal.

    Our first encounter with the silver Mooneyham-Sharp Ford Coupe was in 1960 at Bakersfield Smokers March Meet. It sounded as fast as it was on the dragstrip. The black bantam had no chance in this race.
    great artwork… Dean

    Hello,

    A black and white photo from the early days of “Nitro” at Lion’s Dragstrip. If you were not eating a Famous Hot Dog or Chili Dog from the Lions Pits Refreshment Stand, then you were standing around having a good time prior to staging for the next run.

    “…I am glad everyone is having a great time at Lion’s Dragstrip. BUT, I need some help here…”

    Hello,

    My wife’s dad had an interesting history. He was based in OKC and went back and forth from job to job in the early days, the military and then more traveling to the Westcoast from OKC for years with the family in tow. They finally ended up in Buena Park, within a couple of blocks from the famous Knott’s Berry Farm, Ghost Town and entertainment center.

    But, the route back and forth created havoc for the three little kids. In one school for a couple months, then another and finally, after the last stop, as the job was now secure and stable. The one good thing was that they were in Manhattan Beach, then OKC, then Santa Ana, then finally Buena Park. Perhaps it was the wanderlust that started when he lived in this giant old house in OKC, back in the early thirties.

    It was brick, had tons of rooms and was considered a mansion. Not much was said about the inside or any recollection of the style of rooms from back then. It was just a big house to play in and it never got old.

    There were stories floating around that this roadster was the primary vehicle for the family and many hours were spent going around OKC to see relatives and friends. But, this was the only photo that the family could find. Times were very simple back then compared to the hectic society of today.
