    Are you sure about NAA being in Downey in the 30's??
    During WWII we lived just 2 miles from NAA now LAX area.

    Early fiberglass was heavy. This body needed extra strength in the A pillars around the windshield. The roof ultimately blew off this one.

    The Beatles ticket stub was very interesting. At that time I was working at a GM assembly plant. My pay rate was $3.54 an hour. The exact price of that ticket. One hours wage today won't buy a ticket to see a no-name act let alone a big name.

    Gary, sweet Buick granny has there. Looks like a '49 Roadmaster, if I'm not mistaken.:rolleyes: 320 Fireball OHV straight eight
    Dynaflash. I'm no Buick expert, but does that look like a four-door HARDTOP?:confused: If so, I didn't know Buick offered a four-
    door hardtop quite that early. (I'm a DeSoto guy, and DeS was around the Olds/Buick class. They didn't have a four-door
    hardtop 'til '56. :eek: Yow.)

    THEN&NOW: I always loved the WILD names companies came up with for engines, trannies and other mechanical
    and creature-comfort offerings! "Fireball" seems a little over the top, IMO.
