  12. What I found out about this image

    CARS WERE JAMMED EVEN MORE THAN USUAL INTO EVERY SPARE SPACE AT A DOWNTOWN COMMERCIAL PARKING LOT DURING A BUS STRIKE IN WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, IN MAY, 1974. SOME 250,000 PEOPLE WERE FORCED TO FIND ALTERNATE FORMS OF TRANSPORTATION, USUALLY THE AUTOMOBILE. MONUMENTAL TRAFFIC JAMS RESULTED AS DRIVERS LEARNED THERE WERE MORE CARS THAN LEGAL PLACES TO PARK. AS A RESULT THEY USED BUS LANES, TRAFFIC "ISLANDS", "NO PARKING" ZONES, SIDEWALKS AND LAWNS

  18. Hundreds of junked cars were denied to the war effort by the Lennox Motor Company in Maryland. The owner refused to sell at the established junk prices.

    The '35 on the left of the pic appears to have an "x" in the cowl which I thought made it a '36, am I correct ?

    I believe this shot of a Ford Dealership is most appropriate, especially since Ford recently won NHRA's 2011 Manufacturers Cup award... I've got three feisty Fords in my garage... My late aunt used to have a '69 Torino Gt like seen in the pic... I was just a little kid, but I do remember the car being pretty darn fast... She raced it on the street, and eventually took it to Old Bridge Township Raceway Park where she earned one of those coveted "Class Winner" stickers... Those were the days as they say...

    Woody, you made my day -- no, WEEK! -- with this great shot! :eek: This helps illustrate JUST what great material was sacrificed for the war effort. There weren't many hold-out like these folks. Most people supported the scrap drives. And, besides, some government agents could be pretty pushy, as well.

    And would you look at these cars? Some of them are barely 10 years old!!!:eek:

    Riette Kahn is shown at the wheel of an ambulance donated by the American movie industry to the Spanish government in Los Angeles, California, on Sept. 18, 1937. The Hollywood Caravan to Spain will first tour the U.S. to raise funds to "help the defenders of Spanish democracy" in the Spanish Civil War. ​

    Brian Lindner writes on 2009-02-26: "This was June 22, 1953. The plane was a C-47D serial number 43-16371. Captain N.H. Lebish thought he was landing in Lebanon, NH but mistakenly landed at an abandoned WWI airport in White River Junction. The plane was disassembled and removed."
