    Dog, I really meant to comment on this FAB pic when you posted it, but so much going on then.:eek: Beyond the obviously gorgeous '56 DeSoto 'vert, the photo incorporates so much of what life is, or was, about: Cars, toys, our youngsters (the most valuable resource, after all!), all on an idyllic day caught by a dad or mom with a good eye for composition.:cool: Even though this wasn't shot on fine-grain, hi-res film, I still wish to cast a vote for this as one of your threads' INSTANT CLASSICS!:D (Albeit, a few months late!:p LOL)

    Gary (SWI), being a DeSoto freak, I think this promo shot great, especially
    since it's one I've NEVER seen before (I collect '55, '56, '57). I'm puzzled,
    though, by the lack of ad copy; I really wonder if this was part of a two-page
    mag spread.:confused: Top to bottom, there's the new-for-1956 four-door hardtop, the
    awesome 'vert, the pink Sportsman coupe, then what appears to be a small
    part of a four-door sedan. Hemis all! Does anybody in HAMBland remem-
    ber if this is one page of a TWO-page spread?:rolleyes:

    There sure are a lot of post photos that are quoted over and over with a mixture of some interesting and some totally dumb remarks added. Like, "My Uncle Frank had one just like this except his was a four door and it was blue".
    About one half (or more) of the last few pages are complete repeats. Am I the only one who finds this to be a problem with diluting this thread and adding to Ryans bandwidth?
    Maybe I'll be flamed for this, but I think we are losing it here, guys. Or maybe I should double up on my meds (prescription meds!!) ? (smiling)

    I guess I don't have a problem with it. I go through this thread like reading a Playboy Magazine. I'm only looking at the pictures.

    Ours got t-boned at an intersection. Left side crunched pretty bad. Dad drove it until he traded for a white & gold '57 Plymouth with clear plastic seat covers. A wonderful additional for summer driving!

    I was stationed at Vung Tau Airbase from Feb. 1967 untill May 1968 (just after the 68 TET Offensive)

    I used to love watching those C-130s with their jet assist (I think Caribous too). We had one C-130 go off the end of the runway once on landing and for some reason it sat there for a long time.

    WOW! we used to body surf there. The Aussies used to water ski there too.
     
  23. Flatheadguy, I'm with you. There's A LOT of inane, if not stupid, comments and "alternative captions" that really should be left unsaid. I try to just scroll past, but sometimes it's just too much. Maybe I'm getting to be a cranky, get-off-my-lawn, old fart, but I'm cool with "here's a photo I took/scanned/found/harvested and here's the location and date" without too much additional verbiage.

    Ooops! You are correct. I left the area in 1984. Memory plays tricks on me.

    Hey Swi66, I love your contribution to this thead, as well as a lot of the the other members pics. I find this pic very interesting, do you have any details on this car or do you remember where it came from? I am almost sure it is a very famous Aussie car from the sixties. I studied the photo & I am almost sure it is the car, I will scan some photos of it later.
    Thanks.
