speedy Bill ?
Hey, you had to start somewhere. It's just a shame that the worse ones cost some people so much.
"Curiosity killed the cat"!!!
Neat to speculate tho!
This one may be still around; it's had a busy career. Built for Eastern Airlines in 1942, but instead it went to the USAAF as a C-49 s/n 43-2010. Surplused postwar it flew for Northwest as seen here until 1949, then with California Central as seen here in 1953 (William Larkins photo from the Ed Coates collection):
Then its registration was changed to N148D and it flew with Ozark from '58 to '66 (my uncle was with for Ozark and probably worked on it!). In the '70s it was with Pinehurst Airlines (Ellis Chernoff photo via airliners.net):
Then with Texas Airways and Southwind Airlines; last reported sold in 1995 and the registration cancelled in March 2012.
I'm thinking Joe Dirt
Now we go from aviation history back to Kentucky:
^^^Original caption says it was hit by a train.
^^^My favorite two photos from the whole batch. I'd love to build this station in 1/25 scale!
^^^Not the real Marx Brothers; just some locals hired by the theater to promote the movie. You can tell if you look closer:
^^^...see? There's the fake Groucho and Chico in the front, and in the back there's Zeppo and Homo and... wait a minute?!?
(OK, I'm sure they were just being wise guys and the photographer didn't notice, or else he would have done a retake...)
Stay tuned for the next thrilling installment...
I stay there when we go to San Diego, at least Im prety sure its the same place... the fire hydrant is there
625 Hotel Cir S, San Diego, CA ‎
and a corvair too!!
I nominate Denise Diplock as our Titular HAMB Queen.
For those who don't get it...sorry!
She could have been any of our girlfriend "back in the day".
Yes, and whoever started this (you know who you are) should be the one to show her how famous she is!
Hell I Married her
She's cuter than the girlfriend I had in High School> HA
Rare indeed , only 201 were built.
What a quaint little town. I would like to compare this to today. Does anyone know the name of this town??
TREEmendous!! Does anyone know where this is? I would like to look it up today.
D. Diplock for Queen of H.A.M.B., seconded
looks like the girls my sisters would bring home for cheer practice in the late 1970s when I was a pre-teen. those girls were real and gorgeous and all adopted me as their little brother.......good times, man!
One of Henri Cartier-Bresson's more iconic photos, taken in Brie, FR.
See link below. Book your flight now! Gary
No you don't. You know you'll just be disappointed.
And those of you that think there is a "common" meaning of the word titular, think again:
Huge THANK YOU!
looks like Montrose pa
Her last name wasn't Diplock, but I once had a Denise. Fun times...
Yeah, thats hardly a Vintage shot of days gone by. OT
Hey that's Mt. Hood, Cool picture!
BOOM! That's it! Thanks.
Recognised this as an Aussie photo even before I saw the photo name with Canberra Run.The middle car looks like Lyn Arrowsmiths coupe. He still has the car in virtually unchanged condition although it has been chopped.
Somebody else may chime in on the roadster and tourer. I am wondering if the tourer maybe was Dick Pross's car.
The 32 roadster was built in Adelaide by Phil Hart ,,in the mid 60s ,,ran a 318, had the chassis Z'ed and maybe an Allard front end ,was bought by the late Steve Simpson and taken back to Sydney ,,all were Romans Hot Rod Association members ,,,not sure but i think the 32 ended in Kevin Monks collection,,,was ahead of its time in OZ,,,
Guess the last shot didn't get me banned, so to continue with Kentucky:
^^^Bet this place got a makeover some years afterward, backwards or not. This is part of a triptych of photos taken in the early '20s; the whole building was half a block long (over 30 swastikas!).
^^^"Be shure to see Raffles - he can crack anything but a smile."
Guess he can't crack open a dictionary, either. Any guesses on the car? Thought it was Mopar but I've never seen a two-door convertible sedan like it before.
^^^Caption on this one says the guy is the legendary Barney Oldfield.
More to come - goodnight all.
