The shadow tells much of the story in this picture. Great posts Hemidav.
A little camera geekery here. It also tells that the photographer was looking down to take the picture by the shape of the shadow of his hat. It looks like the camera was held at the height of the hood, maybe about the waist of the photog. Twin lens reflex, maybe?
I does look like a UFO
1943, NYC ~
^^ That pic above. One of my all time favourites. Glad to see it again. I searched for it some time ago and couldn't find it.
Probably a Kodak Brownie.
These cameras were low priced and so common that most of the photos on this site were likely taken on a Brownie.
Louis Unser in the number 92 ‘61 Chevy?

Someone found a Cord nosetrim in the junkyard, looks not bad on the Ford convert.
Probably true. Those old pre-35 mm Kodaks had pretty big negatives and often got decent quality pictures if there was enough light. Cut my teeth one one of them. Twin lens was a whole step up. A fair number of those came back with GIs coming home from Korea, stopping in Japan as my dad told it.

I believe that's a Pines dress up trim item. I also seem to remember the last time I saw that pic it was said to be George Bush. Don't know if it actually is, just what someone said.
Everything old is "new" again....
Tiny wheels, zero caster and what is that, about a 30* incline? No thanks!

That is the Nash Motors exhibit at Chicago’s 1933 Century of Progress. World Fairs were typically held for one year but because the COP made money it was held over for 1934.
BTW, Ford only exhibited at the 1934 Fair. Henry couldn’t decide what he wanted to do for the ‘33 Fair.
This woman has it all. Both feet up, hand full of throttle, ready to make
the next gear. Sure would like to have met her.
