    SWI, some great pix, man. Any background info would be even better, where
    available. RE the one below, does anybody think the woman at left looks an
    awful lot like Henry Ford's personal secretary? :confused: I haven't seen many photos of
    her, so maybe I am mistaken, from memory alone.

    I thought that at first, but it has a split windshield and the door glass is too long.

    A SATURDAY 'ALTERNATE
    CAPTION
    ' DOUBLE HEADER
    :D


    :DALTERNATE CAPTION 1)
    ----------------------

    "As a couple, Frank and Mildred
    were nothing, if not at all times,
    thoroughly practical and frugal
    people, trying their best to live a
    'minimalist' lifestyle. Not ones to be
    swayed in the least by the latest
    trendy automotive styling fads or
    having to have outlandish and
    unnecessary 'luxury' features on
    their vehicles, one of their all-time
    favourite sayings - and as very
    admirably evidenced in this photo,
    was - 'Second class driving beats
    hell out of first class walking!' "
    :D

    --------------------------------
    :DALTERNATE CAPTION 2)
    -----------------
    "Never ones to worry about
    "getting a reputation", within a
    few of weeks this photo being
    taken, the 'local 'bad girl' twins,
    Connie and Lulu, were able to
    trade in their decrepit old '30
    Chev sedan for a brand new,
    shiny red '53 Nash 'Airliner' with
    'seats that fold down into a
    double bed in just seconds',
    and similar to the one featured
    in the attached ad below!

    .308 is a 150 or 180gr bullet....the .50 used a 750gr bullet didn't it? That tiger would have been shredded with a .50
