    Looks like the Ambassador Bridge just before US Customs coming from Canada into Detroit.

    FWIW when I worked at Linden, the lines was running at 62 cars per hour

    For the Warbirds fans, these silhouettes are from the official UK Govt's Aircraft Recognition Handbook, aimed at preventing "friendly fire" incidents? :cool: Lots of enemy silhouettes in there too. Let me know if you want Mustangs, Harvards etc.

    IIRC, there was a BOP plant in Southgate, CA. My friend and I were lurking in Summer of '61 to see what the '62 Grand Prix looked like.

    ^ Correct- my chart didn't list SG but it was an online BOP plant in '59. There were -of course- other 'home' plants: Lansing (Olds), Detroit (Cadillac), etc.

    Interesting color combination on that Ford, must be island inspired (because of the palm trees) or something.

    Was that a factory combo?

    Thanks for posting this, it really brought back a bittersweet memory, when I was in first grade, my father had given me a very cool black airplane, it was unique in that it lacked any detail like a regular model airplane. ( it was revealed to me much later, that is was a DeHavilland mosquito, and that it was a WW 2 recognition model ). I knew nothing about Bakelite in those days, and like any proud youngster, I took it to school to show it off, it made it through the entire day, until it was time to line up and get ready to go get on the school bus, a kid in line asked if he could look at it, I handed it to him, and he dropped it, and instantly it was in a million pieces on the floor ! All trash and into the dust bin in seconds!
    Love to see more of anything from your book!
    Thanks,
    Dennis.

    The placement of the Ford V8 emblem just to the rear of the grille shell makes it a custom bodied ‘36. Ford built them in 131 1/2” and 157” wheelbase, hard to tell from this photo which it is.

    What is the problem? She looks like she is going shopping or maybe to a party in her nice '56 CDV. Seems like an ordinary photo.

    Might pull it on flat ground, but what would you do if you had to pull a grade or stop it?:p
