    I believe this is on the White River on Ark. Highway 1. This ferry was in operation until the early 80's and it still looked this way until the bridge was the start of the bridge and new road.

    I'd hate to have to change a flat on this puppy, spare location is for 'Charles Atlas' or 'Superman'

    rainhater, I agree, that was a lot of money in 1959 for a car radio. I was still in High School and working nights and weekends at a local ESSO gas station making $ 1.00 an hour, I thought at that time $ 1 an hour was good wages. Two years later I went into the U.S. Air Force for $ 95.00 a Month.
    Thanks, Russ

    Russ, you are so right. Adjusting for inflation, your entry pay into the air force in 1959 would be near $750 in 2013.

    Today, somebody in a combat zone :rolleyes: may be making only a little over $1,100 -- in today's dollars.

  12. I noticed those right off. Those are called General Jumbo wheels and are steel spoked. Made in the 1930s.
