I wish life could be this simple again.
If only Humanity was once again active enough to build our own cars instead of machines. Thank gosh for everyone who knows how to change there fuel and put a spare tire on. Amen
Isn't the girl in the middle Donna Douglas (Elly Mae Clampett) of The Beverly Hillbillies?
A well groomed gentleman should always be a well mannered gentleman also. Gents, do not let chivalry be a thing of the past! Don’t just look the part of a gentleman, live the part as well!
with Sue Ane Langdon and I can't think of the name of the actress on the other side of Donna.

The two cars in the first picture would have been owned by Ron Ford (Ocean Park Ford-was a Coca Cola quy in Nanaimo at the time) can't remember who built the T-bucket but the Model A was a one off 'glass body built by Cam Grant. The T was sold in pieces to Eddy Eng who had it redone in black with a sbf, tunnel ram etc. Cam's car went to John Beddington then became a Midas Muffler "Annabelle" raffle car. Spent many hours working on and riding in both these cars.

I still have one at the house and when I wash the clothes I still use it when the sun is shining instead of giving my electric supplier more money,most of the time it gets used to hang parts when I paint.
These are only three of many interesting photos along with much interesting information that we have up in a detailed post all about Bohn and Bohnalite in Detroit who made quite a bit of Flathead speed equiptment.
A couple of the wild Bohn WWII era designs we have up in a post all about the interesting company from Detroit.
The Twilight Zone episode "The Prime Mover" from March 1961 has a couple of guys working in a cafe who suddenly hear the sound of skidding tires. The screen switches to Robert Mitchum's 1957 Ford - the Ford pictured here - crashing and rolling into an electrical power station or transformer, coming to a stop upside down. The two guys run out of the cafe over to the wreck to see if they can help. There is a license plate attached to the grille of the car - plate number 5A3-236 South Carolina. Comparing this to another photo of a movie still shot, it seems to be the same plate.
These two guys are standing next to the car with the plate attached and one of them suddenly demonstrates the ability to cause the car to start moving and right itself onto it's wheels.
I didn't realize that TV series or even other movie producers ever used crash scenes from previously released productions to use in their own way. And, the scene where the two guys are standing next to the car with the correct license plate has me wondering if someone saved the plate and attached it to another car. Surely, that is not the same upside down 57 Ford from the movie that is pictured here.
