    My guess would be 1946 or earlier. Wasn't the red bar added to the insignia in 1947?

    YA! As a young boy it was like Nirvana with all the bikes, the trikes, the wagons, and all the cool stuff a guy would need as he grew up and got into cars!

    Western Auto and the northern version 'Canadian Tire'. Bicycle parts and car and farm stuff.
     
  10. The pic below is from my childhood hometown Milford Michigan, taken in the 1959-60 timeframe. You can see the Western Auto sign above the store where I and some other kids spent many a day - and dollar - buying bike parts and checking out all the great stuff like toys and fishing tackle. The store was operated by one of our classmate's dad thru most of the 50s and 60s. If memory serves, some of the store brands were Western Flyer and Revelation. Just 3 stores up from the Western Auto was the D&C 5 and Dime Store. Heaven for kids with 10 cents for a quarter!

  12. Totally classy lady, always. For us who were kids in the 50s, we 'grew up' with Annette via the MMC. Gone too soon for sure!

    The second one is a bit more tricky - I'm only guessing, but I think it's around Mt Lawley / Maylands, looking towards the east end of the city, with the old East Perth Power Station in the mid-distance...........?

    I'm happy to be proven wrong though.

    Thanks.

    Washington DC. 1947,
     
  21. The Fisher/GM project was during the war, an political attempt to include those companies as aircraft manufactures ( GM did make a version the F4F Wildcat ) by using various parts of existing aircraft. It was a classic boondoggle from the start, was a mediocre aircraft and a money pit for taxpayers. A great example of political BS and designing by committee!

    Now THAT is a beautiful car.
    I didn't think so back in the day. I thought it was an old man's car, but hey, now I'm an old man.
