Warman street by old Chevy plant. My friends a engineer and remembers the bridge ...
The first speed shop I ever saw was a Struss Store in Mount Vernon or Mount Kisko New York back in the early 60's
I lived in Connecticut and that was where the guys told me to go and order the motor mounts I needed to put a 283 in a 1950 Chevrolet Business Coupe.
Next problem was at 14 years old I needed a ride to even get there!
B-24 Liberator bomber, probably built at Ford's Willow Run plant.
1956 Chevrolet prototype ?
There was a Strauss store in Avon, Connecticut on route 44 in the late 50's, early 60's. I believe that was the business that was in Hartford, Connecticut, known as Kulak's on Albany Avenue before moving to Avon.
is the red car up front a Toyota Toyopet ?
Or was it a Toyota Crown ?
Hamden, CT above picture, gone now but there for many years, Jimmy's of Savin Rock had a restaurant there.
Paul in CT
Old time alarm clock LOL
Monowheel from the 1930s was called The Dynasphere.
Dolly Parton (with her assets normal size) with her husband Carl Dean, they've been together since her first day in Nashville
Lower Manhattan, New York City, 1918
1930 Steam Line KJ Henderson motorcycle
Wonder Bowl Anaheim California1958
The first shot looks to be Duane Carter at Winchester. Carter was one of the greatest high banks drivers that ever raced and his son, Pancho, was just as great.
Is there any information on this shot, Rootie? It's a clean looking car complete with whitewall tires on the rear.
And since I see a betting window in the background I'm assuming this race is at a horse track. Could this be Freddie Agabashian at Bay Meadows in the early 1950s?
Thanks for posting, Rootie!
Always got to admire a car with Torque Thrusts...
All I have is that the pic of the #8 car was taken at Oakland and the drivers name was Menser or maybe Mesner (?) The champ car is indeed Freddie A. and the inner rail posts look like it's at Sacto. 1950
Was the shoebox convertible the one built by Lenny Legere of Mass ?
This pic reminds of the Confederate Railroad song, Trashy Women
