    I grew up just outside of Greenhills, graduated from GHS. Those slides most likely were behind the Community Bldg. which served as the K-12 school for decades. Although no longer a school it currently is the office for the school district administration and a branch of the Cincinnati and Hamilton County Library. The building still has many of the original art deco murals in the hallways. I was there in wood shop class (remember them?) there when the principal came on the pubic address system and announced that President Kennedy had been shot.

    Greenhills, OH, along with Greendale, WI and Greenbelt MD. were a "planned community" government program during the great depression. They were pretty much a self contained city with everything within walking distance and, at least for Greenhills, surrounded by a 2000 acre county park. Even today there are still descendants of the original families occupying the same homes. The photo shows the first streets being built, the Community Bldg., yet to be started, would be in the upper left corner.

    Yes she's stunning but what's more interesting in that picture is how close those cars are parked to each other.

    I can't say that I recall ever seeing the tire, wheel and brake drum removed as a unit before. Not that it hurts anything.
    It reminds me of the time I walked into the shop where my truck was being worked on and the "tech" had my brake lines pinched off with visegrips. I told the manager that unless he could prove that was an acceptable Bureau of Automotive Repair practice he's going to have to replace those lines at his expense. They were replaced.

    The URC race is at the Bedford Fairgrounds Speedway on August 7, 1965 during the Bedford County Fair. The picture is a John Pittman photo.

    All I’m saying is it would be very rare for a dealer not to load up a dealer ordered black convertible. It may have been special order. On 56 Fairlanes skirts were very common.

    With the wire wheel hubcaps it looks better without the skirts.

    Not only looks better, why would anyone want to hide them behind skirts?
