    I think there's a story to go with this photo... perhaps written by Stephen King or maybe Rod Serling...

    In 1975, 40 year old Clayton finally found the car he has always wanted, a 1936 Pontiac business coupe. Found in the barn of an old scientist, Emmitt Brown, Clayton was more than happy to buy the old car. While on his very first drive with his new found love, Clayton drove into a tunnel at the end of an old road. Secretly thinking to himself he wished to he go back to when he was born, 1936, to see what the car would have looked like when it was new. Emerging from the other end of the tunnel, he noticed all the other cars were no newer than 1936. Clayton also noticed his clothes were rapidly getting larger and larger, as Clayton seemed to be aging in reverse. Being to small to drive, let alone change his own diaper, Clayton could not return to 1975.

    It seems the 1936 Pontiac he purchased must have been some kind of Time Machine, but instead of only passing through time, it also reversed aging. You see, Clayton didn’t just pass through time, he was transported to the Twilight Zone.

    LIFE magazine image from Lima, Peru in '59.

    Thank you. I've recently come across a bevvy of really decent vintage blogs, too many to bookmark, and have been transposing more than normal lately. Very glad they're appreciated and will do my best to keep them up. It's either that or back to more Caddy pics. ;)

    The main reason that the control surfaces were made of fabric was for their weight - All the control surfaces were mechanical actuated using cables, pulleys and bell cranks. - The fabric covering made it easier to move.
    The fabric was a canvas like material that covered the surface and was coated with a shellac that when dried would shrink the material to the structural shape
    Patches to the cloth had to be sewn on the shellaced, depending on the designed it ranged from time consuming to to really difficult
    I spent my first few years in the USAF working on C-47s in the States and in Viet Nam - It was easier to swap out the control surface and send the damaged one to the Fab shop for repair.
    Metal surfaces could be scab patched using blind rivets unles the inner structure was too damaged.

    I too saw Grand Prix there. My older brother took me to see it when I was 7 or 8 years old and what was almost cooler than seeing that movie in that theater was that we sat in front of Alan Hale who played the skipper on Gilligan's Island!
