  7. This looks kinda like a Stude; has it been modified or customized? Any info on it? Those headlights really look nice.

    Al, what a nice shot, uncle Joe's Merc was a chick magnet, i guess! do you recall what make the hood ornament was? my first thought was the packard swan.. is the car (and one of your nice ones) still around?

    your friend, Carsten
     
  10. That Merc 'vert sure brings back memories for me too. When I was a kid in the mid 50s one of the local batchelors had a black '47 convertible - decked to the nines. I still remember dad telling us "...he never had a driver's license but someone had given him an honorary deputy sheriff's badge that he used to keep from getting tickets..." Almost always seen wearing a big black cowboy hat and one of those gawdy, flashy western shirts, old Jess kept that Mercury spotless, I got many rides in it back in the day.

    Ron, thanks for that, i really enjoy to hear these stories, that's what this fabulous thread is grown from! still can imagine the all dressed up guy. ever heard what kind of guy he came out?


     
  13. hell,I love the hole dam thread !!!!!!

    Keep em coming, h.a.m.b 's
     
  14. Jess was old when I was a kid. That is to say - he was old in years but young in heart. Everybody's friend, seemed he'd do whatever was asked of him. He loved Hank Williams Sr and let everyone know; I can almost hear Jess in that off-key twangy voice of his, trying to sing 'Hey, Good Lookin'. . .

    Hard to imagine in today's world and lifestyles that someone like he even existed. I wouldn't say he was a transient - he wasn't. But he lived on different farms in the area, helping farmers with their crops, cattle, butchering - whatever needed doing, and wherever Jess hung his hat was home.

    My dad was a self-employed builder of houses; when he needed a second pair of hands, arms or legs Jess was often there to help. And with the teens? Jess would help pull an engine, do a brake job, or even 'flag' the practice sessions on improvised 1/4 miles! He passed in 1967, well into his 80s while my older brother was in VietNam and I was still in high school. Huge turnout at his funeral, and I don't think a dry eye in the lot.

    seems that Jess had a good taste and a kind heart in every way, you nailed it, people like him are very seldom nowadays.. nicely you mentioned him singing some Hank tunes, that reminds me i'm addicted to him (see link below), love to sing when Hank sr. does while i do some work on the Pontiac... Thanks Ron, this story made my beer o'clock bright! Think Jess is in good memory for everyone who knew him.

    The one in the foreground looks like it would be tough on the kidneys.

    Everbody's crazy bout a sharp dressed man!

    I don't remember what year the Studebaker was, but my brother's about 1 in this pic, and he's 6 years younger than me so that makes this pic about 1956, probably Easter judging from the fancy duds. Still 3 more boys to come.....

    My guess is it is a 1941 Willys by Americar.

    We never owned a Willys, but we had a couple of Studebakers - this was the second one.


    edit: sorry, replied to someone else's post, my bad..

    1947, my Mom holding my older sister, just home from the hospital, the '39
    Dodge behind her. In '49 they bought a new Studebaker, cause it had the cheapest V-8 you could get- according to my dad.
