    If I had a cherry '56 Bel Air I'd look a lot happier. Maybe it's the matching sweater his wife made him wear.

    Maybe he isn't smiling because he still gets to drive the 59' Family Truckster in the driveway and MAMA gets the Bel Air. LOL

    no problem Deuce Daddy,,
    each photo is surrounded by ,, so when u do a quote it looks like:
    [IMG] photo blah blah [IMG]
    so u kinda gotta count the photos and remove all the ones you dont want to quote, and leave only the ones you do,, you can edit, and then click
    "preview post" to check it out,
    and you can do that as many times as needed before clicking 'submit reply'
    :cool:

    SWI66, in your post 82474, the fourth photo from the top appears to be the excursion steamer "Avalon" at the old cobblestone wharf in Louisville. I believe she is now the "Belle of Louisville" and still steaming.

    She was purchased by then Jefferson County Judge-Executive Marlow Cook in the 60s, and has undergone constant refurbishment ever since. This steamer and the old Delta Queen always had a big race during Derby Week.

    One aside: Judge Cook used to keep a bowl of pennies on his desk. Whenever a visitor complained about the money spent for the boat, he'd take two or three out and hand them to the complainer, saying, "There you go, that's your share of the cost as a taxpayer."

    Thanks for the memories. I don't feel qualified to comment on much on this forum, but it's nice to see something I think I know a little about.

    Kinda looks like Nixon. Maybe he's pissed that Ike got a limo, and all he got was a lowly '56 Chevy.

  11. I've read that the 1930's era heavy cruisers ( 8" guns ) had hangers for scout aircraft but, have yet to see a picture of one. Does anyone know for a fact that that is what this pic shows?? It would seem so, but, wish to make sure

  29. Nowadays, this would be the guy needing extensive background checks, to make sure he isn't a risk to all those children. Sad, what our world has become.
